    My latest Priv issues: Bluetooth experience worse and less stable connections than before (when casting to our Google home, I would sometimes disconnect, but not very often; now I'm expecting at least one d/c per music session of 10-15min). Double notifs, where for ex I'll get a fb banner notif for my event, tap on it, be taken to the event and said notification, only to have a secondary notif banner drop for the same thing I'm viewing at the very same time. There have been many times when accessing a notification will lead to a loading screen which never completes the loading process, and instead I have to close and re-open the app and manually go into new notifs w/ in the app itself. And most damaging of all: Google play store updates for all my apps has a permanent "error downloading updates" which I haven't been able to get rid of w/ reboots, clearing cache, or any other tricks (don't want to do a wipe and start over, especially if that doesn't fix the problem). As I feared, the Priv doesn't look like it will be usable for much longer

    Google play updates, update: so between my KEYᵒⁿᵉ and that new Nokia 8 Sirocco, I didn't notice it at first but my secondary (work) email stopped sync-ing. After some refreshing and messing around w/ a few settings, I just deleted and re-added the account - and somehow that gave the Google play store a hiccup it needed. I've got 13 apps w/ updates pending, so

    4 hrs and 17 min of screen time w/ 6% remaining, and at least 10-15% of that was just idle off the charger. Still get to have some good days hehe

    Perfect example of a pretty terrible day: it's 245pm, I have 7% remaining, and my screen has been on for 1hr 24min. It's listed at 10% overall battery drain, and is 2nd place to a 1st entry that reads 10154 and has an icon if the android robot next to it (it's at 24% lol)

    Weird that it's so inconsistent

    That Android OS error that is eating up battery life could be app not installed correctly? Or you tried uninstall an app?

    1. clear cache in storage ( with 6.0 marshmallow have direct access to this setting in storage)

    2. Hold down power button during at least 32 seconds and while device tried boot up 3 times

    Good luck

    Yo Rico,

    There's someone on Reddit who claims that she gets... wait for it...

    3 days of battery life on her Priv!


    Her secret?

    De-Google the phone.

    How so?

    Simply disable ALL Google apps and delete your Google account(s) from the phone and voila!

    I mean realistically with my usage I could go from 4.5 hours of SOT to like 6 or so, but 3 days? Lol

    I'm too dependent on the big G's apps anyway (Notes, Contacts, etc)
