Would you recommend doing a full wipe and not restoring any kind of backup at all for this kind of thing? It's a hassle to reinstall all the apps manually but maybe it's best?
When u take a SS, we tap the "Long SS" pop up right? Just keep tapping that for as long of a SS you want.😁
I don't think restoring would have any effect as "Restoring" will auto-download all apps from Playstore and you will do that manually anyway.
But, I do recommend NOT TO INSTALL THE LATEST UPDATE, it reduced my phone's SOT by 2 hours.
@Anna-Kin thanks for the warning! I'll keep that in mind. I didn't even know an update had come out tbh. Btw are you consistently getting 2 hours lesser or did it happen just once? It could be any number of reasons, that's why I'm asking.
@pingu780206 depends on what kind of restore you are talking about. If it's the default android restore then it should be fine. If it's a titanium backup I'd recommend against it. The point of wiping the phone is to completely clear any system level remnants from the previous version. So any kind of restore that doesn't interfere with that should be fine.
I installed it and felt this too :'((( I'm upset as heck.
And the SS thing just seems to take so loooong. It's easier on other UIs for some reason.
Anyway thank you so much for your help!!
In my case it would just be a restore from my old phone's backup which was sent to Google drive. All I backed up was wi-fi settings and apps though, pretty much.
Also I have the latest update and have noticed a bigger battery drain too. :/ Hopefully it gets patched soon.
@thejus44 With the same usage as prior to update I am consistently getting lower SOT, I don't have apples-to-apples comparison of Screenshots, however, I do have a couple. I will sort them and upload them soon.
The reduction in battery life is noticeable TBH and performance has taken a hit as well, the benchmark scores are much lower than it was before.
Its just sad to see that with each subsequent update the phone's performance is getting worse.😥
@thejus44 Here are two screenshots of using the phone till 50% charge was left
Before update: .49
After update: .56
@Anna-Kin holy hell that's a fairly substantial dip indeed. Thanks for the screenshots, looks like I won't be upgrading thanks to that. Until I see the changelogs for an update that specifically says "improvements to battery life" I think it's best to keep away.
Not sure why Asus came out with that update anyway, .49 update was fairly great at battery life imo.
Jesus Christ, comparing the SOT + phone idle time on both screenshots is terrifying. I dont have any screenshots of before .56 myself but now I'm curious how it was before.
Really hoping they fix this soon. :(
