Another security update dropped last night.
Looks like I'm not the only person not liking how the battery is going on this phone. I also find this phone is a bugger to type on.
how long does it last?
tried different keyboards?
I have to recharge once a day. I do use it a fair bit but not happy with how quick it goes flat.
most phones (after a little while of ownership) need charging if you use them medium/heavy during the day
a heavy usage day and i'll need to recharge around dinner time, but most days of light-medium usage it easy lasts till bedtime
just noticed on my S9+, when i switch from sound to vibrate mode, then back to sound again, the notifications volume stays at 0 instead of returning to the volume it was on before i set it to vibrate
very frustrating, because sometimes i forget and then i don't get notifications sounds when phone is not on vibrate only
That used to happen to my previous s7. Just test my phone now (S9+) and it doesn't do that. It must be a setting somewhere? But I couldn't find one.
Thanks for trying!
It's bloody frustrating!
Cases for the S9 going pretty cheap here: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/519565
I nabbed an LED cover, was out of stock but still let me order.
Don't bother. Got a call from HN and they are refunding people, EOL item and they aren't getting any more.
Just in case anyone missed this from the S10 thread there's a big update to the OS recently. All good so far, apart from gumbising some of my icons.
Geebus, dunno what happened with the last update but seems every app now has access to me location at any time (which for a select few apps that actually need it I had it enabled, the rest nope)....but at least I'm getting prompts telling me it's happened and asking what I want to do.
Anyone else noticed a distinct slowdown recently? It's bogged down.....really slow to refresh screens. Not sure if it's because of the last update......
Yes I've had times it's gone bad and had to reboot . Just really lagged
Any idea what's going on? Something in the last update? Really frustrating.....never happened before with any updates....
no idea just noticed it in the last month. gets to a point it cant function my work app and i restart the phone.
ive tried force closing all open apps to but doesnt do anything
Ok I think maybe I worked it out. Checked if apps were updating in the background and I had at least 30 that needed updating that had in fact been updating in the background slowing everything down. Now that I've updated them all it's back to normal.
Weird, never been an issue before.
Hrm imight check of mine is doing that
Just checked mine, as it's been the same. Only 8 updates, but I'll see if that improves it. Might keep an eye on the updates, or just switch off auto update.
I wonder if there was some issue with the auto update feature that should just run successfully in the background without sucking resources.
Ever since I babysat those 30+ app updates until completion the phone has been fine ever since.
