It is said that the update to version 18.3.82 of Google Play services is flawed and uses the smartphone battery much faster than usual.
Updating Google for Play to version 18.3.82 should be incorrect. As reported by Android Police, citing various users, the update ensures that Play Services consumes battery faster than usual due to increased power consumption, even in standby mode. Google Play services that solve many tasks are included in all officially licensed Android versions of Google. Accordingly, Play Services is used on hundreds of millions of devices. Google has not yet commented on the issue.
