    With my Samsung S5 I normally have 70% by the end of the day. I installed the app on Sunday. Left for work Monday morning with a 100% battery, by mid afternoon with just usual use. I was at 25%, uninstalled the app this morning. My battery is back to normal. The battery drain happened even with the app off and all update options turned off.

    I was having issues on an old LG phone so I got an old acer tablet, updated to the latest android OS and then put dji go.
    I also set it to not update anything at all and have been running that flawlessly as a dedicated phantom machine.
