agree ever since this new andriod update on the 18th my battery does drain faster
The general rule is "Don't fix it if it ain't broken".
I don't understand why many people are so keen to update their software when the current one is running just fine.
Now after the March security patch, battery drains faster than it originally was! LoL
Just got the March update on my Galaxy S7. Now all apps I've moved to SD card show as not installed. Continues after shutdown and restart and after removing and reinserting SD card. Card is mounted and files look to be all present. Anyone else seeing this?
AT&Ts update is also there. Phone loses battery sooner on data after this update. There has to be another fix for sure.
jonathon, 18 Mar 2016I am sure that I will get the Verizon update in April.I just got the update this morning on my Verizon S7
I have the S7 - on Verizon - installing an update right now. I'm going to look up the details of it.
Brian sohai, 18 Mar 2016PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANY SAMSUNG FLAGSHIP! My S5 which released alongside HTC M8 and Sony Xpe... moreI also have the S5 running on Lollipop. Am I bothered? Not at all! The phone works fine, it is a great product, does everything I need it to do.
All of you fail to forget that its the telecom company that does the update, they control the software. If there is a security update to android or touch UI, it is highly likely that the same fix will work with most current phones. The telecom company must decide if they want to upgrade their latest phones, or put there workforce on a old phone project that affects fewer customers.
Get your facts straight of who is to blame if thats all were going to talk about

PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANY SAMSUNG FLAGSHIP!
My S5 which released alongside HTC M8 and Sony Xperia Z3 have still yet to receive Android Mashmallow update whereas the M8 and Z3 have both received official Mashmallow since Dec 2015.
When I went to Samsung service centre and ask why it take light years to receive MM? I got yelled by Samsung staff!
Ptui Samsung! DO NOT BUY SAMSUNG PHONES!
