Moto X battery life after lollipop update

My Moto X 1st gen was update to Android 5.1 last weekend.  Since the upgrade, the battery life is severely less.  It is only lasting 4 hours versus 12 to 14 hours before the update.

You can try to clear the cache or Factory Reset - (my personal choice.)

Turn off your phone.

With the phone off, press and hold both the VOL DOWN and POWER buttons at the same time for 2-3 seconds, then release both buttons.

The phone will display different boot options. Use VOL DOWN to scroll through the options to RECOVERY MODE and press the VOL UP button to select.

The phone will display the Motorola logo, then the Android figure lying down with an exclamation point with the words No Command underneath. Press and hold the POWER button and tap the VOL UP button. Note: If you wait too long to perform this step, the phone will reboot and you'll need to start the process again.

The phone will display additional menu options, with text in blue. Use the VOL DOWN button to scroll to Wipe Cache Partition and press the POWER button to select it. The cache wipe will begin immediately.

After the Cache Wipe is complete, the blue text menu items will reappear, with "Reboot system now" highlighted. Press the POWER button to select it.
