I recently updated my Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 to the latest version. Along with the software update was the August security patch, and a few bug fixes. However, after I updated, battery life as decreased significantly. Before the update, I would have about 5 to 7 hours of screen on time, but after the update, I would get about 3 to 4.5 hours of screen on time. Anybody know how to fux the issue? I am thinking of updating all of my apps to the katest version in hopes it would work. Anybody else have any other tips?
U can always downgrade to latest Android 7.0 & enjoy longer battery life. Oreo is NOT optimized for battery usage. After dowgrade you can't install montly security update because you need Oreo (8.0) for the regular monthly update. So you have to choose: 1 keep Oreo (8.0) & short battery life & regular monthly security updates. Or 2 downgrade to Nougat (7.0) longer battery life because battery usage is optimized but no monthly security updates.
Nonono. The version before I updated was the first Oreo update, with the June security patch. That was fine, that was the version I had very good battery life. But I updated to the latest with the August security patch, this is the update after the first, and now battery life was very bad.
It's NOT estimated battery life from device maintenance, it's based from real time usage like browsing the internet by wireless connection 5-6 or more hours, sending 20-25 sms, 2 hours or more talking combine together. All this give almost 2 day (45 hours) battery life on Android (7.0) Nougat. Note: my battery health condition is 100%
