npondaWell said. Same thing happend to me as well. That problem affected my battery really badly and it got swollen within a month. And when I installed a new battery (I couldn't get an original one because of no service centre, so I purchased a good quality non OEM battery), phone heating issue and battery drain issue was still there. So I finally changed my mobile because I was afraid of battery explosion. And I am pretty sure, all that problem started after the new update.
Same experience - battery has started draining like nuts for no identifiable reason. Happens even in airplane mode. In fact it seems to be worse in airplane mode. Tried everything possible including clearing cache partition, uninstalling apps and whatnot and wasted lots of time.
Extremely frustrating experience with asus. It's amazing how they can release update with such critical bugs unless they're trying to deliberately get rid of customers.
This kind of experience one will definitely remember while purchasing a new phone. And if this is not fixed real soon, would need a new phone very soon. This kind of battery drain is going to kill the hardware including battery super quick.
qromodynmcthis is not the right way to talk. i live in mumbai but asus service centre is very far from my place, the fastest mode is local trains, but they are not working for normal people.
If asus doesnt have service in your area, probably others wont have either. You should have stayed at stone age.
Victor0_ASUSIt's not working sir.i have the same problem form the .63 update please quickly fix it
Please follow below steps may improve battery backup:
1. Enable “Power saver” (Settings > Power management)
2. Close apps that are not used (Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, etc.)
3. Adjust sleep time and brightness (Settings > Display)
4. Boost memory when you see memory consumption is high with no app running,
5. check for background running applications, stop/disable unwanted apps, you can manage apps from auto-start manager.
To recalibrate battery, charge your phone to 100% without interruption.
then discharge it normally till 0%(phone gets switched off).
charge it to 100% in switched off condition and keep it in that state for a little more time.
now switch on your phone in charged condition and unplug when ASUS logo appears.
keep the phone unused for 5 mins.
you will get far better battery life as the battery stats.bin file will be updated.
