Not had any issue with battery drain. Other people may experienced it.
Yeah, I guess you're right regarding security patch coming with bug fixes.
SamBoy XD, 05 Feb 2019Yesterday I got the January 2019 Security Update on my old S7! XD Though it still has Androi... moreHaha dude i feel sorry for you and other Samsung users. A 2 Years old Device, that didn't get any newer Android version. Actually since last year they didn't get any newer Version it means not even a 2 years old FLAGSHIP as they call it like this, but imo a flagship's software life is not only 1 year is not up to date . It's really sad, I hate to say that but Apple is doing an awesome job in keeping their devices up to date. Even an Almost 6 years old iPhone 5s got every single OS update.

Though it still has Android 8.0, I still expect to get at least 8.1.1 with the latest security update (at that time)!
abigfanoftechs, 05 Feb 2019How is a security patch going to fix a battery drain? ;-) It does help in fixing issues like battery drain. If u look closely, every Security Patch update will have a "with bug fixes and other improvements" sort of words behind "Security Patch Update". It is to show that the update not only includes the Security Patch itself, but also bug fixes and improvements to the software. I guess u didn't receive the November Security Patch before, it was the worst update I've ever had. The first few brands who started rolling out ANDROID OREO got paired with the November Security Patch, and it drained my daily driver XPERIA XZ like crazy; it dropped from 5 hours of SOT to maybe half of it I guess? I had to bring my portable charger to school temporarily, that's how bad the situation was. This nightmare ended after receiving the January Security Patch in 2018, and brought back the SOT I used to achieve. If it were to include only the Security Patch update, things like these wouldn't be happening, "bug fixes and other improvements" is the culprit behind the issue. It can fix and surface issues, from chipset not performing at its max potential to battery drain, to software glitches and other types of issues, u could say that it's a double-edged sword
abigfanoftechs, 05 Feb 2019How is a security patch going to fix a battery drain? ;-) By software. Yes, battery is dependent oh it's capacity, but the software is controlling the usage of it and well created software can control its use. At the end of the day, it is mostly up to the user how they use the device, but if anything gets corrupt within software and it misbehaves, it can affect baterry use greatly.
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2019Can confirm this latest update does nothing to fix battery drain (as expected). Each Android u... moreBS. Slow shutter in Pixel 3 fixed by Android Update, RAM Management problem fixed by Android update, BATTERY DRAIN FIXED by Android update (i don't know about your device, maybe you do something wrong and wining around because you are not able to handle an Android), Low Quality Mikrophone while video Recording fixed as well, yellowish display in smaller Pixels fixed by Android update as well. WTF are you talking about dude??
yesterday night I started OTA update but morning I didn't see any info about Feb 2019. still January 2019 and not any update... google recall OTA ?
Can confirm this latest update does nothing to fix battery drain (as expected). Each Android update either makes drain worse or solves nothing.
