I had a 2 week old LG G2 Android phone that has an excessive battery drain since yesterday. When I look through Settings>Battery>Battey Information, it shows that Android Systems is responsible for >90% of the battery usage. On clicking the Android systems, it further shows that GPS has been on for over 16 hours (it's been 16 hours since a full charge).
I do not have GPS running, in fact even if I turn it on and then off, the battery still indicates that GPS consuming the battery. Rebooting also does not help, battery still shows GPS is is consuming power and I don't know how to stop it. I don't have Google Location Services turned on nor is my wifi or data on. Searching the web, I found that Google maps may be the culprit. I disabled Google Maps more than 8 hours ago but it doesn't help.
Anyone have the same problem with LG G2 (D800)? Any clue as to which app is turning the GPS on? How can I fix the battery issues?

I've disabled the LG Intelligent Agent and the battery drain stopped. There is still a LGsmartservice running and I have no idea what that is.
I'll keep a watch and see if the battery drain resumes again since the GPS still seesm to be running.

The battery drain issue got resolved after turning off Carrier IQ, LG Intelliagent and Location Services. However, if I charge the phone, the battery drain reappears. The only solution I found after a full charge to stop battery drain is to reboot the phone and turn off the above three services. Until the next time I charge the phone.
As an additional note, I've found that at times the battery drain is minimal after a reboot without turning off carrier iq and lg agent. Seems rather strange issue and don't know whats really going on. Looked up XDA forums and one of the post did mention that keeping the phone off for 5-10 mins allows battery to recalibrate itself. Makes sense butthere should be a better way to fix this.
