The latest Snapchat update has been severely draining the battery on some phones, according to some reports.

The update was released last night and, although it changes the picture sharing app’s design, LG G4 and Nexus 6 owners have reported that it severely drains the battery life of their devices. HTC One M9, iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s owners haven’t reported any problems.

It’s unclear whether this is an Android or iOS-restricted problem.

The update has moved the Discover box under the Stories tab. This means that editorial content from Sky News, MTV and Cosmopolitan magazine, alongside Live events, are featured at the top of the app.
