    Ever after Lollipop came out, with each Update my Battery Life decreases astoundingly. 2 days ago there was a new Update.
    Like, it's ridiculous. I have to Reset it to fix this.

    Anybody else has this problem?, how can I fix it?, I don't want to be resetting this thing with each Update.

    It's normal for the OS to be laggy and battery to work poorly after an update. I'd suggest performing a factory reset and clearing your phone's dalvik cache

    That's what I've been doing, and what I'm saying is that if I have to Reset it after every Update, well, ****

    Haha I know that feel.. You're not alone. All phones, ranging from budget models to flagships are adviced to do resets after every update

    Really?, I didn't know that.
    I guess I'll read the specs when a new Firmware is released, and just wait and not Update my phone.

    Thanks fella

    I haven't had this issue with my Nexus 4; Lollipop hasn't significantly impacted battery life, if anything, it's improved it, and I haven't done any factory resets on it since I got it. But I don't know, there are a lot of factors that affect battery life, and a factory reset shouldn't be too annoying; anything on your SD card is preserved, and Google Play will automatically reinstall all of your apps.

    The last update effected my battery life. I don't know how to do a factory reset and what changes it would make to my data, apps, photos, etc etc. Sounds scary.

    A factory reset would wipe your entire phone clean, (it will leave the SD Card as it is)

    Google will have a list of the apps you have on your phone. Also, link your Google account your phone so that the contacts aren't lost and kept on the Google servers.

    I wonder if Koodo can help me. I know they transfer stuff when you buy a new phone. Well I'll do lots of research, backup music and photos to my pc, etc when I'm ready.
