Default [Q] UK S5 Updated to G900FXXU1ANE2 - Problems

Hi,

A couple of days ago I updated my S5 to G900FXXU1ANE2 with Kies 3 from my PC.

I've noticed worse battery life, but I guess its too early to judge so I'll give it a week or so and a few more cycles.


However, I have noticed that during ALL games the battery gets ridiculously hot. I've never had this on any previous firmware updates. If its related to the flash/firmware then I am tempted to go back as it never used to get hot and battery life was a couple of days.

I know there will be some stock answers advising me to do a factory reset, but I'd really rather not.


Cheers,

GG

I had strange battery life, too.
"Multimedia" drained my battery and phone became hot!
It seems that there is a scan of every media on SD after update..
Today I have another problem: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2737673


EDIT: Multimedia started again draining my battery.. I can't believe it..!!!
Are You a noob?

Noticed my battery life isn't as good after the update either. Not noticed any difference heat wise though.

Kill the bluetooth test process, it causes a damned large amount of wakelocks.... that helped a lot for me.

Also NFC despite being turned off, it was causing some wakelocks for me.

Whats the bluetooth test process? I can only see 'bluetooth share' running and it only let's me stop the process not disable.

Change to the All tab in the Application Manager and scroll, it should be below bluetooth share and it will have Force Stop enabled.

Got it. The only thing is that it will restart after every reboot because you can't disable it. I switch my phone off at night. Will force stop and see if it improves my battery life though.

Heres to hoping that Samsung release another update to resolve this.

Its a shame coz on the previous firmware the battery life was awesome.
