I saw many posts complaining about idle battery drain after .087 update. I also had the same problem initially. So I'm sharing the steps I've done to rectify this problem and it worked for me.

*Turn off your fingerprint sensor (remove all fingerprints). Now use the device to 0 percent battery until it automatically get switched off. Now without turning on the device charge to 100 percent. Now turn on and start using the device and do not turn on fingerprint sensor again.*

Before this I had about 30-40 percent drain during night and now its only 5-7 percent.

Idle battery drain can damage your battery. So maybe temporarily stop using fingerprint unlock atleast until the next update.

(This worked for me, but I cannot guarantee it would work for everyone. Anyway you can try it and see if your problem is solved.)
