Poor battery life and wifi since Sense 5.0 and Android 4.2.2 update
I know this is a common problem with the HTC One X, but it's starting to annoy me more and more each day, and I can't go more than 8 hours of little or no use without the battery draining completely.
I'm using a non-rooted HTC One X, on Sense 5.0 and Android 4.2.2. I've had the phone for about 18 months. Before I updated six months ago, the wifi was fine and whilst the battery wasn't great, it was decent, especially for a smartphone. Now I can only really connect to our home's wifi if I'm in the room of the router, or maybe a neighbouring room if I'm lucky. The battery is more of a problem though, dropping 40% in an hour with general use (Chrome, Twitter, Facebook and music) on one bar of brightness and an average volume for the music (12:30-1:30 in the screenshot).
In the five hours the screenshot shows, I had it on Power Saver from about 3 o'clock onwards, and when the screen was on I wasn't watching videos or playing games, just general browsing. According to HTC, Chrome's used 23% with 12 minutes of use, Twitter 17% with 6 minutes, Android OS and Android System a combined 21%.
Basically, I know I can't go back to the far superior Sense 4/Android 4.1 combo, but is there anything I can really do to improve either battery or wifi aside from HTC's pointless help of "use the phone less" and "turn wifi off" and all that. I could try a hard reset, I guess, but I'm not convinced it will do much.
Any advice would be appreciated.
