Android update battery problems: How to fix poor battery life following Android 5.0 Lollipop update

53 comments, most recent: Tom Chandler said on : "

1 You are quite incorrect about having a choice to upgrade to Lollipop. AT&T pushes the update after 3 rejections, like it or not.
2. I have a Samsung S4 that didnt react kindly to Lollipop.. Battery drain was horrific... 2 hours max and the offending app...Android System
3. I did a factory reset and performance is dramatically improved. I can now get a whole day out of my 1.5 yo battery..
4.Reset isnt that big of a deal. All apps are reinstalled, although you will have to reset your screens/pages.. you may lose some app data if you dont back up these files.
5. After reset and reinstall, lollipop now operates a little better/different than the first pushed upgrade - thinking i had a corrupt install.... now i have a lock screen and notifications--that dodnt come with my original lollipop push.
All your other advice about turning off wifi and restarting phone are quite uneccessary ..I run all of these and a lot of apps( Im a geek) and the RESET is the fix - for me anyway. like night and day.
My advise - backup important stuff and reset ... dont procrastinate..like getting a new phone

OnePlus Two release date rumours: Something's happening on 22 July

I I'll buy for sure if, 5.5" screen with the shrink in physical size make it almost bazel less vertically. Phone itself must be slim and light, 7mm or less / 120 g or less. 4k display under gorillas glass4. Long battery life is a must and USB2go. Screen cast capable would be nice, ac WiFi even better, 4 gig RAM would got me addicted to my phone...

17 best free and cheap Android apps for kids, toddlers and teens

I can also suggest a math educational
game that learns 4 - 6 years old kids to count up to 100 in 20 minutes.

This app is: aMath Numbers Eng
https://play.google.com/store/...

You can see example in You Tube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

It combines visual and audio representation of numbers in a gaming manner
and a professional actor voices each number.

My 7 years old child who doesn't speak English learned to count up to 100 in
English in 20 minutes as well (2 times x 10 minutes).

There is a free version as well:

Sony Xperia Z3+ release date, price and specs: The Xperia Z4 for the UK

I hear you. PhoneDog reviewed the Sony Z3 Compact which is not officially supported by any carrier in the US. But the reviewer simply purchased the right config and it works fine on her network. She's glad she switched from her iPhone to the Z3 Compact. I'm sure the same will work for the Z3+.

Apple TV 2015 release date rumours, features & specs: When is the new Apple TV coming out?

1 comments, most recent: fredphoesh said on : "

Guys, Andriod has been doing WAY faster, WAY more capable and flexible boxes than this for YEARS. One of the best ones at the moment, is the Minix neo x8-h plus, but there are loads of other good ones, like the cheaper Tronsmart S89, or super hot ones like the upcoming Nvidia Shield Android TV console...

Compro C200 Plus review

7 comments, most recent: Mr Techy said on 19 January 2011: "Although it was easy to set up, recording from decent quality VHS produced mediocre results. Any slight glitches in analogue tapes were much more pronounced rendering some clips unwatchable. Analogue tape owners should look elsewhere."

Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) 2.66GHz Core i7 review

5 comments, most recent: fubar1977 said on 17 January 2011: "Overall experience has been fantastic, this machine just does all I ask it to and has given me no problems at all. Buying a Macbook Pro has been a "leap of faith" that has paid off in every respect, only complaints have been minor OS peculiarities that disappear with familiarity. Totally Recommended."

Epson Stylus SX215 review

2 comments, most recent: User019283029 said on 15 January 2011: "Not a bad printer, but the quirks of not being able to print in "black only" mode, and not being able to scan unless all inks are OK is annoying. Quality is pretty good otherwise though!"

PhotoBox review

1 comments, most recent: zeromarks said on 11 January 2011: "Spoiled a gift for a birthday celebration, and has made me incredibly angry. The customer service was atrocious in my opinion, I found the staff rude and unprofessional. My card still hasn’t arrived, and isn’t expected to arrive for “another 4 – 6 days”. This is in total 12 days for the printing of a simple card!"
