Re: Battery drains faster with Lollipop

How long ago have you updated? I suggest you wait some more,restart the device regularly.

Re: Battery drains faster with Lollipop

Hmm..that link was about charging, have no problem with that, its just that the battery drains faster, thougt Lollipop was supposed to be better when it comes to battery savings. Guess it could be some apps thats not optimized for Lollipop yet.

Three days ago so maybe it will get better. One theory I have is that WLAN might be the cause since I have better coverage after update.

Re: Battery drains faster with Lollipop

So you are using wifi or mobile data and which one causes trouble?

Re: Battery drains faster with Lollipop

Both are working just fine, Its just that I noticed that I have better reception when I using wifi now with Lollipop compared to before. Pephaps the Wifi on the phone is more effective with Lollipop and that takes a little bit more from the battery.

Re: Battery drains faster with Lollipop

That could be, I usually notice that after a major update, the battery will drain faster if I'm on WiFi, usually play store or G+ are syncing uploading and downloading stuff.
