Battery drains superfast after 5.1.1 on S6

After upgrading to 5.1.1 on my S6 the other day I had the intial sms issue where I could receive but not sent texts. That resolved without me doing anything the next day.

Since the update my battery is dropping like a stone. On a full charge it doesn't last long. It also seems to be draining so fast that when plugged into a standard car charger it barely does more than maintain the current charge level.

Hi, I am going to do a factory reset tonight, but this is just clutching at straws, I've done one already and it didn't help.

5 hours away from my charger today and I am at 20% battery with 1½ hours screen on time.

Install GSam Battery Monitor from the Play Store and let the phone run through a cycly and check the app to see what is using the battery power
