Really hope someone can help with this as my telco think I'm imagining it.

Own Galaxy S2 which I love and a Nexus 7 which I also like a lot.


In last couple of months same telco has pushed out FOTA updates on both which have completely ruined the battery performance on both devices.

I've tried pretty much every fix I can find including full restore from scratch on more than one occasion but no good. Battery on both are good and this has only become a problem since upgrading to latest jellybean.

Any thoughts before I biff both in favour of an iPad mini and a 5S?

Cheers
B

PS..


the android OS is running flat out on both.Using almost as much battery as the screen.

I seem to recall an issue when going from ICS to Jellbean but can't find anything right now and not familiar with Nexus 7 but had S2.

I see you did a restore have youb tried factory reset.

Can understand your frustration but no point in binning them over a software issue

Hard reset of the handset resolves many issues after a update

Any phone will do this, and since you're using Android now going to iOS will only make you miss key features. I'd recommend running a factory reset on both and go from there. You've also got to remember the S2 is about 2 years old now and features change rather quickly in the Smartphone world.

The iPhone 4 / 4S have horrible battery life now in my opinion, on my 4S I couldn't get over 8 hours battery.

+1 for the factory reset.
And your Nexus7 will never get updates from any telco, or even telco approved... That's pure Google.

OK..maybe not telco updates. However to reiterate.. factory reset done on both devices on more than one occasion.

Pretty-much expect a days use out of a smartphone, the iPhone in general is not so good on battery so not sure if it'll be an improvement for you. It's personal preference however but I do feel you should spend the money on the HTC One or S4.

I currently have the S4 and find it awesome, far better value for money than the fruit counterpart.

If it's only been since the latest update, perhaps re-apply a different rom to them both.

How longer battery life are you actually getting from the devices?

At the moment I wouldn't recommend changing to an Iphone 5 for battery life! I own one and love it but the battery life is crap at the moment. I am hoping iOS 7 will fix this a bit.

Ipad, I can only refer to the full size version, battery life is amazing!
