Galaxy Note, the first generation Samsung phablet launched in 2011 stirred consumers' excitement letting them enjoy a large screen handset. After the widespread success of the Note, several companies have started bringing in their phablets in order to make enough profit from the booming segment of the market.
For a long time, the Galaxy Note, which was initially based on Gingerbread OS was awaiting upgrade and in 2012, the handset received one for ICS. Now, with Jelly Bean being the latest version of Google's Android platform, Samsung started rolling out the same to Galaxy Note owners in India.
Though the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean upgrade has been a good addition to the phablet, however, it has come with some glitches too. Similar to the issue faced by Galaxy S3 owners, some users who have upgraded their Note to Jelly Bean are facing multitude of battery draining issues.
As informed by one of the Gizbot readers, after the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update via Kies, Galaxy Note has been giving severe battery drain, requiring the users to charge the handset more than once a day, as compared to the daily usage in the past.
At the same time, the battery goes dead within half a day's time when Wi-Fi or GPS is turned on. Further, the applications such as Camera seem to be slow taking about 10 to 15 seconds of time to open. Besides these issues, the handset is reportedly facing heating issues as well.
Of course, there are a few steps that have to be followed to ensure that the battery life does not drain too quickly. If you have upgraded your Galaxy Note to Jelly Bean and are struggling to find a way to resolve the battery drain issue, here is the solution.
The Jelly Bean upgrade brings in a bunch of new features including Google Now. This feature constantly scans the device for pertinent information and hence it is a battery drainer. Also, the Samsung Push notifications is a battery killer and it has to be disabled to be free from the issue.
There is a remedy for users of Galaxy Note to try out themselves. All you have to do is remove the battery of the handset without switching off the device and then keep it outside for about 2 minutes and then insert it back into the handset.
Finally, there comes the factory reset for those having issues with the battery life. This processor will not only bring back the Galaxy Note to its default state but also uninstall the unnecessary and old files that run after the updates.
Try these method to see if you can resolve the issue of battery draining. Also, let us know via the comments section if there is any other method to put an end to this problem.
