HTC One M8 battery drain FAST after Lollipop

I don't understand how Google, HTC, and Verizon can all put out such a crappy release with such a glaring and obvious problem. From what I read, almost everyone with every phone on every network is having major battery issues after this release. I loved my M8 and its battery was lasting 16 hours on one charge with heavy phone, text, and browsing use. Now, it literally drains by the minute. 10% in 15 or 20 minutes. Won't last more than 2 hours while doing nothing. If I make a few calls, it lasts less than an hour. Big difference between 16 hours and 1 hour!!! HTC and Verizon told me I needed to clear the cache, so I did - NO CHANGE. Then they told me I needed to do a factory reset (what a pain in the a**). I did that and still NO CHANGE. What a crock. I'm ready to throw my phone out the window, except for the fact that I spent $650 on it just a few months ago (that was the only way to keep my Verizon unlimited data plan). When is Google/HTC/Verizon going to fix this horrible release so my phone can actually be used as a phone and not a paper weight? Horrible, horrible, horrible...
