Users Reporting Decreased Galaxy Note II Battery Life, Post-Update

Check out Galaxy Note II


Software updates are supposed to make our phones better, right? Sure, there’s the unusual feature-robbing update like we saw Samsung deal with thanks to its lawsuit over universal search, but generally expect a better experience when running the very latest software. Unfortunately for Galaxy Note II users, a recent update is reportedly taking its toll on their hardware, stealing hours from the phone’s battery life.

Details of Galaxy Note II

This issue was noticed after installing the update released for the international Note II earlier this month, which intended to fix the Exynos memory bug, among other changes. After the update, users are reporting that they get up to an hour less active use out of their phones on a charge, and changes in standby time of even twelve hours or more.

One theory points to the phone’s MediaScannerService as possibly being responsible for the excessive battery consumption, but we’ve yet to see any proof for such allegations. We’re also not ready to discount the possibility that at least some of this effect may be being imagined, as a number of users insist that their phones aren’t seeing any worse battery life.

If you’ve upgraded your Note II, have you noticed any battery life problems?



  1. I am you get one tomorrow. Last phone I’d would be a apple iphone 4S . Benefits and drawbacks

  2. I’m searching for a brand new phone and contract in addition to a device in my job – I’m a listing clerk so need osmething I’m able to record a study on but esy enough just to walk round within hands not less than two hrs.

    I’ve two options

    1) To obtain a Universe S3 on contract like a phone and for private use, then get a Universe Tab 2 7. for business use. This is actually the most costly option and even though the Tab is larger and will have to be transported around work, it does not need to transported around on social occasions or holidays.

    The 2 a few things i am concerned about with obtaining the note is 1) could it be too large to hold around like a normal phone regularly inside a handbag – socially as well as for business and a pair of) may be the screen large enough to have the ability to execute reviews (it’s on an internet based program)

    Any advice or ideas could be greatly appreciated

    Sorry I lefat out my second item accidentally!
