    Why my Samsung Galaxy Note having Battery issues right after updating it to Android Ice Cream Sandwich version?

    I use to have a battery backup of 1-2 days in my Samsung Galaxy Note with Gingerbread version but right after updating it to Android Ice Cream Sandwhich version I am facing problem with the battery backup. It just dries out in 6-8 hrs. Why this is happening? I never installed any new app after the upgrade it just the same only difference is the upgrade. Is it a problem with ICS version? Is there any way to revert back to the old version? How to do it?

    Well the thing is that icecream sandwich is an updated version of the gingerbread which has got higher quality and updates and resolution. So it would take much power in your galaxy note when compared to gingerbread. So it consumes much power. If you want ur note to consume less get the former version to it.

    Hello

    Android 4.1.0 is good version with all aspects , try to do this steps to control your battery :

    Avoid to your Live wall papers
    Brightness should be minimum
    Vibration intensity should be minimum
    Close all unwanted applications for that download 2x battery saver option it will kill all unwanted apps
    Follow this steps you can get some more time .

    If you want to change past version go to customer care and ask them to change your version to 2.3.6 version.

    Hi,
    That might be due to the reason as that the ICS is a version of android OS that is a bit heavy on Hardware and is bit more usable with the resources in the device which causes the device to lose a lot of battery in a short period of time also the device might be having the options of Auto Sync which means that the device is consuming more battery turn it OFF in "Settings->Account & Sync" turning of the Auto Sync might enhance the battery also try disabling auto brightness this will help in improving the battery after all the improvement you should at least get battery for 24 hours if that is not happening then take the Galaxy Note to a Authorized service center and get it fixed.
    Hope this Helps.

    hey friend..

    I would like to tell you here that the problem occurred in your mobile due to the ICS update you had in your phone ..
    This is because the ICS software version has got some bugs and hence people are facing many problems with the ICS upgrade..

    The problem which people are facing after the ICS upgrade is that -
    - The performance of the phone degrades in every respect ...
    - RAM speed becomes really slow
    - RAM has been used by unnecesssary applications and in unnecessary operations and hence the speed of phone slows down
    - Battery of phone drains out very fast
    - The phone becomes laggy after the upgrade in all operations like in games , apps , music , etc
    - Playing HD videos is not possible and if played then they play very slow with a lag
    - Playing games and apps also became annoying thing due to slow speed ..

    I would like to suggest you to take your phone to the nearest service centre and get the previous version of software reinstalled ....


    Also you can try out some of the points to increase your battery life...:
    - The brightness of the phone should be kept as low as possible in which you think can adjust to operate the phone normally
    - Also the vibration of the phone is one thing which consumes the battery more .. so , if you think you dont need the vibration facility then do check it and make it off...
    - Try to keep your phone in power saver mode or sleep mode should be activated...
    - Bluetooth and GPS are the features which should be turned off when not in use...

    - Always charge your phone completely and not partially
    - Unnecessary apps being opened in the background also consumes battery ... So , close them when not in use ...

    thanks

    Hello

    As per my knowledge better os brings better battery backup but with samsung its been opposite.

    Same problem is with galaxy s2 update as well.

    Ics uses a lot of battery and has so much of running applications which keeps on using your ram.

    Its a issue with the updated os not with the phone.

    to revert back to gingerbread you have to take your phone to a service center as it cant be done in your home. Only upgradation is allowed if you want to update at home.

    else you can try custom roms which are available in the internet specially for note. Hope this helps

    Thank you

    Ice Cream Sandwich updates are plagued with bugs isnt surprising. Its clear that Samsung and Verizon came down to the wire as the companies managed to push the update out just shy of the Q2 deadline that Motorola imposed on the software.


    Verizon had originally announced a June 22nd roll out date for the updates but it became clear, soon after, that a majority of users were without the update to ICS.
