    Default New Update coming to EVO 4GLTE?

    I went to a Sprint Tech store in CO today to get a new Optimus G upgrade from an old LG Optimus S for my older brother. I have an LTEvo and I (of course) got Jellybean. As a person who sees minor to major flaws in build 3.15.651.16 710RD (Jellybean), I asked them, (the Sprint tech people) when these flaws were going to be fixed.
    • Battery Life
    • Proximity Sensor
    • Power Saver mode (I know that is a feature that is common in most HTC Jellybean devices, but its bugging the crap out of me)
    • Some Google Apps not working (Youtube over 3G and LTE, Google + not working)
    • Crashing/slow loading of some pre-installed apps (Facebook, Sprint Zone)


    They see many people coming in with their LTEvo's with build 3.15.651.16 come in and complain all about it day.

    They told me that an update was coming our way, and maybe when the Network update pushes it through, those flaws should be fixed.

    Can anyone confirm this man I was talking to?

    Hope so. Waiting until they fix the camera shutter sound that can't be disabled.

    It still takes a long time to fix the problem if this problem just happened on your device.

    The battery life and the proximity sensor were the top biggest complaints in forums like these as well as sprint stores for having a hard time to hang-up calls, and having 8-hour less of battery life. If everyone complained about it and brought it to Sprint stores, obviously Sprint is going to do something about it.

    I saw mention of that but in the same thread someone also said that there are no laws like this in the us. Only in Asia.

    I'm still recommending a factory reset for anyone with battery life issues. I've been on the JB version of MeanROM for a while now but on release day I was running on a stock (but rooted) ROM with battery life just as good as I had on ICS. Even with official updates a dirty upgrade isn't the best way to do things.

    For most people it is just a matter of turning off location history. Battery problem solved. If not, THEN try a factory reset.
    The camera noise disable will likely not come back.

    ^^^^^THIS^^^^^ I had fiddled around with the Location History in ICS and it ALWAYS drained the crap out of my battery. I think many people are checking off boxes not knowing what they do when turning Google Now on.

    Did a factory reset. Did not fix problems. Received a REPLACEMENT PHONE and everything seems to work. No crashes with Google Nav. Now works great. I would recommend that people who are having problems go into their sprint store and tell them you want a replacement phone. It worked for me.

    AFTER trying a factory reset first. If you don't, that is the first thing they are going to do (and rightfully so).

    When I first updated I thought something got messed up. So I did a fill wipe of the phone and installed the first day os. Wiped again and upgraded. The same issues were still there for me.

    Honestly the biggest one that I even notice anymore is the sensor.
