v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption in Bug Reports Posted November 12 @Crericper Quote @RBEmerson, it was a thread that checks play service, but went into infinity loop, and I think, it is most likely caused by play service not responding. Interesting. Play Service was mentioned, more than once, as a possible problem. IIRC, tinkering with it was occasionally useful, but didn't prove to be a certain work-around. The infinite loop must have been extremely active to hammer the CPU to the point of heating to the point it did. Of course high battery consumption inevitable in this instance. FWIW, I've been using existing playlists with no problems. Battery consumption is well within the expected range.
