    I saw today an article about the release of version 4.1 of google play services.
    Several improvements mentioned, but the most relevant for me was improvement of battery-usage.
    So I installed it an hour ago and ...

    In my current rom (Mokee Kitkat 4.4.2) in idle (with all communication on (bluetooth, wifi, 3G)) my Mi2S used to dissipate some 6% to 7% per hour.
    With the new apk installed, in the last hour it used 4% !!!

    Still not optimal, but a lot better.

    See http://www.androidpolice.com/2014/01/09/google-play-services-4-1-begins-rollout-with-turn-based-multiplayer-new-google-drive-api-preview-and-more/ for details.

    Wait, do you mean even when you're not using your phone (i.e. screen off), it's draining 4%/hour? If so, that's actually really poor. I'm on the Mi2S as well and am draining at 1%/hr at most, usually much less. I'm on WIUI tho.

    For example, in the past 6.5 hours while I was sleeping, mine drained 2%.
