    Default mm-qcamera-daemon battery drain

    Got this. Searched the forums and apparently the only way to get rid of it is through a factory reset?

    Anyone else figured out another way? I noticed it started happening when I downloaded Instagram and another camera app.

    Also, when you do a factory reset, does it get rid of the preinstalled apps. For example, will the camera and voice recorder still be there (although I know that the files will be deleted)?

    Have you tried to uninstall those apps and do a hard reboot?

    And factory reset will revert your phone back to exactly how it was when you got the phone. All preinstalled apps will be there.

    I got rid of the apps.

    ETA: just did a hard reset, still there.

    I'm not sure of any other ways around it, so if a reset is something you wanna do I say that's the best way to get rid of it.

    Just did a factory reset. Fixed the problem. But I'm still wondering where the "mm-qcamera-daemon" came from. Hope google is aware of the problem...

    I do in fact believe they are aware of this problem and it comes from downloading other camera apps. I remember reading about it somewhere but not 100% sure.

    I heard that Google created the bug in order to force users to install a system update that has received a lot of complaints. So many people were complaining about Google's latest system update (adding more advertisements, draining battery life, defaulting paid apps to turn on) that they were turning off their auto update. Google couldn't allow that, so they created this bug where the only fix is to install their update or the alternative is a phone that drains battery so fast that the phone overheats. Proof: If this bug were created by anyone outside of Google, the first thing they would have done was identify the culprit and told users not to download the app. Instead, the fix they are pushing is a factory reset, to again force out their latest system upgrade, as well as to reinstall all those nuisance pre-installed apps that everyone immediately deletes.
