Rapid battery drain since latest update

Never had a problem with this phone...... Until the latest update. Now my battery runs out at a ridiculously rapid rate! I'm doing nothing different to what I've always done with usage/apps etc so it's got to be down to the recent update. I notice other people are having the same problem, does anybody know if Sony have acknowledged this problem and if there's a fix on the way?

@Rie1

 

Hello there, some people reported that switching off Bluetooth and GPS (while not in use) will improve battery life. Try that until a fix is released.

Thanks, Bluetooth is never on anyway but I'll take your advice and turn off GPS when not in use until a solution is found.

if prepared to try a factory reset, I'd suggest that - it's a stock answer, I know, but........
