    Latest Samsung Update- battery drain?

    Hi, I feel like my phone has been invaded by an alien. Its really creepy! My Note 2 battery is mysteriously draining. It started after I installed the latest Samsung update.
    Has anyone else noticed their battery draining really quickly since installing the latest Samsung update?
    I use to get nearly two days charge out of my phone and that was with animated screen and full screen resolution. . Now I am lucky to get 3/4 of a day. I turned my phone completely off last night and the battery went from 10% to 1%. Some programme is definitely draining my battery and the only thing that is new to my phone is the Samsung update.
    Any ideas how I can isolate the culprit and stop it happening? Your ideas need to be simple because I am only a novice phone user.
    Thanks and ... Live long and prosper

    Howdy beam, sorry to hear about your troubles. Which carrier (which note 2) do you have?
    Have you gone into the settings and looked at your battery there? This would be a good first step as to what is showing there. There are apps you can download to help track down the culprit, but I'm afraid I don't remember them at the moment.
    Hang tight

    try going to settings>battery. it will show you what is using the battery. might help. I know this is basic, but have you tried a battery pull? remember to leave it off for a minute or 2 before reinserting the batttery.

    Thanks so much for your help. I feel guilty now because i have wasted your time. The problem is sorted in the most embarrassing way. I must have accidentally turned on my Bluetooth connection. Not a good idea for the battery. Ooooops. The Klingons win this round.

    I've had the same problem since the update. I've intentionally left Bluetooth on every day since I got the Note II (like the Bionic, before that), so that it connects whenever I get into my car. I have had no issues until recently.

    AW: Latest Samsung Update- battery drain?

    Same here. No noticeable drain whatsoever on my n7100 with the dmb2 firmware.

    Interesting. That explains things then Jumper and makes me feel less stupid. I didn't remember turning on my Bluetooth recently so it probably has been on for ages and ages like yours with no problems until the update.

    My battery is running out in a day, not having 30-40% left like it used to.
    Just looked to see that in the 4 hours since coming off charge this morning there has been 25 mins of CPU on maps - I haven't used maps today and it's not in the task manager.
    Odd and really rubbish! Is there any easy way to undo the update?
