    Severe battery drain and very hot phone

    My Galaxy S2 just received an update, and ever since it has been going through battery awful quick, even just on standby. I unplugged it this morning (had been charging all night) and less than an hour and a half later I pulled it out at work (hadnít used it at all) and it was below 90% battery. From being on standby for 1.5 hours.

    I have barely used my phone today, except to send a few texts, and I had it plugged in to my computer for about twenty minutes or so this afternoon. I am currently sitting at 23% battery, and my phone is very hot to the touch. There is obviously something draining the power on it and causing it to heat up, but Iím not sure what.

    Carrier: Sprint
    Model: SPH-D710
    Android: 4.0.4
    Baseband: S.D710.1 S.FF18 *
    Kernel: 3.0.15-SPH-D710.FF18-CL663858
    Build number: IMM76I.FF18

    *It's actually S COLON D instead of S.D, but the colon D made a smiley.

    Have you checked what processes are taking up CPU in Settings > About Phone > Battery Use ?

    It was about 25% screen and 25% standby, everything else minor processes (less than 8% each). Not sure how 15 minutes or less of screen and 9 hours of standby equates to that much of my battery.

    Re: Severe battery drain and very hot phone

    Since you just updated, have you performed a factory restore? It often cleans up the mess left behind from the upgrade from one major OS to another.
