HTC One S Android Jelly Bean Update Brings Battery Life Problems
HTC One S users who waited for T-Mobile to get the hotly anticipated phone now have another problem, battery life.
A thread has popped up on T-Mobile's official support forums complaining that battery life is draining much quicker after the Android 4.1.1 update. Users on the thread say the problem is connected to the GPS function. Even when turned off, the smartphone's GPS functionality is still draining battery, according to TMONews.com.
The Android 4.1.1 update weighs in at a hefty 675.49MB and due to its size, can only be downloaded over a Wi-Fi connection. The entire update takes about 10-20 minutes to install.
Of course, updates frequently create new bugs and sometimes it's better to wait till those bugs are worked out before installing. A workaround for the Jelly Bean update could be to simply disable the Wi-Fi. However, that's not a long-term solution and users may want to wait until T-Mobile addresses the problem.
Seeing that T-Mobile customers have waited an eternity for the Jelly Bean update to be rolled out, this could be disappointing news. An international Jelly Bean rollout for the One S occurred last December. However, the update for the United States was still in beta testing at the time. T-Mobile released several updates in the interim but only rolled out the much-anticipated Jelly Bean update in late April.
