An important part of the owners of devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 have begun to receive in recent weeks the update to Android 4.4 (KitKat) , an important data package that brings with it new functions and important improvements in the safety and performance aside. But with the launch of this update, it seems that all that glitters is not gold. Some users, especially those located in the United States , have encountered problems related to battery performance on their devices. Apparently, since the update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat have noticed that the autonomy of the equipment shortens, both in theSamsung Galaxy S4 like Samsung Galaxy Note 3 . There are other specific errors, but the truth is that battery life is crucial for any user, so it is (without a doubt) one of the problems that is most noticeable. But what exactly happens?
As reported by a user to the Mobile Bloom site , after updating to Android 4.4 KitKat , his phone - in this case a Samsung Galaxy S4 - saw its autonomy reduced up to 30%. This means that in just three hours, the team lost 70% energy , a percentage too high for any team, no matter how old it is, much less for Samsung Galaxy S4 . In fact, such a marked decrease in the autonomy of a team can only occur when a lot of content is played in high definition or when video games are used. However, the user who presented this case had only browsed the Internetfor just 20 minutes . The phone sat idle for three hours, yet the battery still drained at blazing speed.
It is true that after upgrading to KitKat , most users have experienced significant improvements in the performance section. In fact, not everyone has observed problems in this regard. Others claim that they have noticed a slowdown in the system when switching between applications or when navigating through the different functions of the home screen, in addition to unexpected blackouts on the screen.Some say that when pressing the home button, the system seems to run slower than normal.
Most likely, these kinds of problems can be solved later (who knows if immediately) after an update developed by Google itself . Meanwhile, it seems that users will have no choice but to resolve this issue manually. To fix the screen problems, it seems that it is enough to go to Settings> Lock screen> Widgets for the screen lock> Clock or Personal message> Clock . In this way, the error should be corrected.
For battery failures, users should be able to reset and go back to the previous version of the operating system. Since this is a serious problem, the most prudent thing to do is wait for Google to release the corresponding patch to fix it. And for you, how does the update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat work for you ?
