Lollipop Update discussion and problems

Updated this morning. Overall it runs well and very smooth. Two issues. One is major.

1) Battery drain - It took almost an hour to download and install. battery went from 100 to 75%. Then as I was updating apps and looking around, it went from 75% to 7% in a matter of 15 minutes, event though it was on the charger. What is causing such a large and quick battery drain?

2) Qualcomm Location finder. Why does this come on every time the phone restarts? I should be able to click or unclick and be done with it. How can I make this stop?

Re: Lollipop Update discussion and problems

BALANSBOY1, I will be more than happy to answer your questions. I would like to know what device do you have? I would suggest after an update power cycle your device off and on. Also make sure you close any unnecessary background application you may have running. - Dillon

Hi Dillon. I have the HTC One M7. (I hate to sound rude, but this is the HTC One section and the M7 is the only one being updated today so I assumed that part was obvious). Phone is starting to charge slowly now instead of draining. maybe a couple of charging cycles and it will be okay. I have restarted my phone several times and closed all apps.

Since updating (which ran my battery from about 90 down to about 20), I can't sign in to my wifi at work. I used to get a web page to sign in to but now I get the wifi sign-in required screen and its just blank (no fields) but at the bottom says Enter your name and password to connect to this network.

Re: Lollipop Update discussion and problems

That is actually incorrect, both the HTC ONE and Samsung SG5 both got final approval and are being released today. See the post references which quotes straight from Sammy as well as provides a link.

Good day for Sprint users. :-)

I have an M7 and have updated and have repeated issues with HTC messenger it is laggy or it freezes when attempting to use the onscreen stock keyboard. Requiring a total restart to make the phone usable again.

But this discussion is in the HTC One forum, not the Samsung forum.

True, my wife's G5 is being updated as we speak. But, This is the HTC One section and the M7 is the only "One" being updated today. M8 is supposed to be next week.

BALANSBOY1,

I would do this over night. Darin the battery completely during the day and then charge overnight. This may help stabilize the battery.

Charging eventually comes back.  I've read comments from balansboy on androidcentral that his did also.  Mine actually went from about 20% to dead while turned off and plugged into a charger after the update was done.
