Samsung Galaxy Note ~ Tips (Part 2)

Dear Readers,

In my earlier post, I posted about how we can upgrade our preinstalled Android Version 2.3 Honey Comb to the latest Android upgrade version 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich.

After using it for several weeks,I found my Samsung Note Battery life has been reduced tremendously. instead of getting a longer life after fully changed, before upgrade to Version 4.0.3 I only need to recharged my phone once a day, this is because my Note is always connected to the internet, so that I always received my company's email.

I thought this is normal. But then I Browse the internet to check if this is normal, and to my surprise the drain in my battery power is not normal almost everyone who opt for the upgrade from version 2.3 to version 4.0.3 experience fast battery power drained, meaning upgrade from Ginger Bread version 2.3 to Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0.3 will definitely cause us a serious battery issue.

here are one of the article I found from the internet "After ICS update, some Galaxy Note users complained about poorer battery life compared with that with Gingerbread. Initially, I thought it is a problem of “feeling” because I personally felt similar battery life after the ICS update. I was a bit disappointed because I had expected some sort of battery life improvements.
Suddenly, last week, I encountered the battery drain issue: battery just draining crazily. In one hour it can drain 3-10% battery capacity when the phone is idle. So, I know the users complaining are not alone." read more
So now the solution is to upgrade your ICS version 4.0.3 to android version 4.0.4, the above article also shows you ow to monitor your Samsung Note where battery life is concern.

So what did I do? I upgrade my Samsung Galaxy Note to version 4.0.4

Well after upgrade from version 4.0.3 to version 4.0.4, it kinda solved the battery issue, now I don't need to recharge my phone so frequently anymore, but then again I am still able to use my phone for 1 whole day even with my internet broadband is continuously active.

So my advice is if not already upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0.3 then you have to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0.4.
