HTC One S receiving software update to improve battery drain caused by Jelly Bean

lrg_htc_one_s_2

Some good news coming to HTC One S users on T-Mobile. Remember that Jelly Bean update that pushed out over-the-air more than a few months ago? Well, it looks like yet another update is scheduled to hit devices and looks to fix some excess battery drainage some users might be experiencing after updating Jelly Bean.

Okay, to be fair, it might not have entirely been Jelly Bean’s fault. Apparently T-Mobile’s WiFi Calling app got wonky after updating to Jelly Bean, causing the app to stay on and drain precious mAhs from the One S. This latest update (Software 3.14.531.17 70RD) should fix that. To update, simply jump into your settings to pull it manually, or wait for your device to prompt you in the coming days.

See, it’s little things like this that can only be found through extensive testing and is one of the reason Android updates can take so long to reach devices. While new features are great for techies like you and I, sometimes stability is more beneficial for the majority of users. Nice to see T-Mobile issuing a speedy update.

    Is this explaining why, since receiving Android 4.1.2 a few weeks ago, my Samsung Galaxy Note which was working fine before is turning itself off all the time, sometimes but not always with a complete drain of the battery? But does it also mean that there is a fix? Then bring it on…

    for the record, t-mobile took 5 months to finally push out the 4.1.1 to one s users. the update was great for the most part except for google navigation, which doesn’t work anymore and would always fc. ics didn’t have this problem at all. i’m curious to see how and if this update will actually improve battery life since i have wifi calling disabled at all times.

    I was going to say…. Don’t you mean T-Mobiles “interpretation” of Jelly Bean?
