Phone battery dieing faster after software uodate

I've noticed that my phone battery is draining much faster after the latest software update. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there anything Sprint can do to fix asap?

Same issue for me. I tried everything and finally did factory data reset which fixed it. Painful!!

Having the same problem with my s7 edge. I just found online that if you uninstall the oculus app it will solve the problem. Evidently the last update for the oculus app is the culprit.
