Nexus 4  - 
 
Anyone else noticed big increases in battery usage over the last few days on the Nexus 4?  

I keep getting 15-20 min bursts 3-4 times per day where my phone heats up like its doing lots of work and the battery drains really fast (up to 20% at a time).  Overall, I'm running through the battery about twice as fast as usual. 

The apps at fault appear to be Google Play Services and Google Services (usually one or the other, sometimes both).  Earlier today I switched from Dalvik to ART to see if that would fix it, but now whatever the issue is just seems to be more consistent - shorter bursts more frequently (as per screenshots).

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix?  I've rebooted a few times (both deliberately and due to running out of battery) to no avail.

Excellent synopsis of the rationale behind the Motorola-Lenovo deal
Summary: Motorola wasn’t the albatross many feared (or hoped) it would become for Google, but it was a wedge issue between Google and Samsung, its most important Android partner. Soon, that will be resolved.

Any other N4 owners having issues with the latest Kindle app update? It is draining my battery like crazy and taxing the CPU so much its heating the phone up... and all while the phone is supposedly asleep! Last night it indicated 30min of CPU use just 2 hours after charging, despite absolutely zero phone use.

Play store reviews indicate issues with the update, but all syncing, losing data, or not being able to open it. Nobody has mentioned power hungriness.

I'm running Android 4.4.2 with ART. Could ART be the problem? Any insights would be much appreciated.

Considering ART is highly experimental and in the developer section, and only for developers, I'd say that's a strong possibility

Other than WhatsApp, what other apps don't work with ART? And are they also fixed in 4.4.1?

So far no issues on 4.4.1
Looks like most mayor things fixed.
