Just installed update today and thought it was Nougat but I guess it was for something else. Cause when i went to check it was still 6.0.1
When the Nougat will start rolling out. Anybody knows ?
I don't have a document I can upload here but I checked on the update for you. Today's document contained security and network items. We don't know about the Nougat update yet; generally Sprint employees find out at the same time as customers.
This update is causing massive battery drain usage. Phone has been off the charger for under 2hrs with pretty much no usage and the phone is at 91%. Battery usage shows Android system at 95% and Android OS at 14% and nothing else.
Battery drain started happening yesterday. I had no recent software update and barely any activity on the phone. I make around 3 phone calls a week, 10-20 texts and I take pictures and about 3 short videos per week. Before yesterday the phone was about 5% drained per day sitting on my desk. Yesterday PM it was warm and completely drained. I need a phone, not a heater.
I have power saving mode turned on. Ultra power saving makes the phone pretty much useless. I turn off everything possible to turn off. The only mistake I made once is turning off "play services" which made the phone useless. But there are certainly many other things that I can't turn off that should be turned off.
The battery usage screen is useless. The predicted usage is wrong, based on prior data before the phone broke and shows adequate life remaining even as the battery drops off a cliff. App power saving is on. Apps screen shows 4: Mycellium wallet, QR Code reader, RadarScope and Swiss Review. I have not used any of those for weeks.
Problem 1: I can't see what is chewing the battery. Problem 2: I can't fix it. Problem 3: too many useless settings screens that do nothing. I need a phone with decent battery life, that is the most important factor and should be the primary consideration for any updates or changes.
One more thing: wifi is off. Early on I figured out how to stop the phone from turning on wifi automatically. I can understand Sprint wanting to keep people off their network but I appreciated the ability to turn that "feature" off.
Thanks for the replies. Normally drops from 100% in the AM to 95% when I get home, thus the 5%. But it would drop another 8% or so overnight if I don't plug it in, plus 5% or more the next day, etc. Definitely won't last 20 days, and I do plug it in as much as possible to preserve the battery.
I restarted and now it says "battery usage data not available". It's at 98% since I had it unplugged for a few minutes. Software version says G920PVPU4CPL3 HW is G920P02 I don't know PRL but I did update PRL and update Profile this morning in the hopes of improvement.
My frustration is doing absolutely nothing yesterday and having a sudden change in performance. I have auto-updates turned off although it updates things regardless.
