Why do you insist on running this. Phone was fine till 2 updates ago now drains fast. Go back to old update.

We're sorry to hear your phone battery is not lasting since your update, Omegia. We definitely want to ensure you have a device you can rely on and would like to take a closer look into this. How many hours a day does the phone stay charged before the phone dies from no battery? What is the phone used for daily? Are you using the original charger that came with the phone? Since the update have you updated all apps on the phone?
