DROID Mini 24.13.2 upgrade battery issue

Member

Battery of my Droid Mini not lasting since upgrade to 24.13.2 last week.

Is there a setting I should look for? How do I find out if they are aware of the issue. I've seen discussions on other websites since the upgrade but no resolutions.

Again, a factory reset solves a lot of problems or at least a lot of posts for various phones have said it does. You can't un-do the system update, but you can wait for v5.1.

Did you do a factory reset? Do you close apps running in the background? Use power saver? Turn off wi-fi/location/bluetooth when not in use? Did you try and set your screen time out to something short? Still wallpaper?

I don't typically turn things on and off or play with settings. I've done nothing different other than allow the upgrade to happen.

The drain is very noticeable as it drops a couple percent every few minutes while sitting "idle."

You should consider it, all the things I asked about are ways to save on battery.

You are correct of course. However I'm looking for something the upgrade did that I might be able to undo that is causing the battery drain. That might have been a better phrasing for my question.

Just make sure you back everything up before doing it. You can also read about various ways to do it, unfortunately v5.0 is simply flawed.
