Demand for electronic devices of all kinds have increased over the years as people realised how helpful these gadgets have become in their lives. Smartphones, for example, are being used today for school work, office collaboration, and even personal entertainment, improving people’s productivity immensely.
As a response to the changing requirements of mobile users, software developers continue to enhance mobile operating systems (OS) to expand the use of smartphones. For Android phone users, the latest OS update was released in 2014 and is called the Android 5.0 Lollipop. Compatible with brands like HTC, Sony, Motorola, and Samsung, this update offers enhancements to visual appeal, navigation, and device features, but it isn’t without its own issues. Below are a few problems Lollipop might have.
Battery power is a common concern in mobile phones, especially with new OS updates that are usually built on top of the current system, instead of developed from scratch. One of the main reasons for this is the overlapping installation of app updates. Users may opt to do a complete factory reset, making sure to back up and save important data prior to resetting.
Since smartphones function like a computer, e-mail and internet connectivity through Wi-Fi or cellular data networks are built into the devices. Some users, though, have a hard time connecting their phones to a network, or receive slow upload/download speeds. They can reboot the device and the router, or disconnect and reconnect the phone to a network.
One unusual problem that occurs only in the Android 5.0 Lollipop update is that applications automatically restart when not in use or when in idle mode. This could eventually lead to major phone problems and frequent battery drain. The only possible solution as of the moment is to restart the smartphone.
Although some problems in any kind of Android phone can get by with only DIY fixes, major issues would need professional phone repairs in Melbourne shops like TWorld ICT Corp Pty Ltd. This is highly recommended, particularly for expensive phones, and for damages that void the phone manufacturer’s warranty.
TWorld ICT offers different services and a wide array of mobile phone parts for brands like Nokia, Blackberry, and Samsung in Melbourne. The shop also repairs devices that are water-damaged and provides warranties good for three months. In case you’re planning to update your OS to the Lollipop, keep in mind the solutions mentioned above and never hesitate to bring your phone in for repairs when major problems occur.
