I mention (type, not speak) "at 11.55" at the end of the search and Google Now Reminder just adds 11.55 to the content of the reminder instead of detecting it as the time of the reminder. It used to work fine till maybe a couple of weeks ago.
Typing "11.55am" doesn't even save a reminder, instead directly goes into a Google Search :/
Does anyone else who's got it feel like LG's gone a bit more closer to stock Android and thus a bit less customisable than it used to be?
-swiping up from the home button now only gives Google Now, no QuickMemo+, which used to be so handy for sending quick (edited) screenshots. Yes this can be done from the notification screen quick toggles, but having to touch the top left corner of a 5.5" screen isn't the most convenient option.
-Recent Apps screen looks like Stock Lollipop UI now, which is a waste of space and non-customisable, compared to the Recent Apps screen LG had, which was more useful and resizeable.
-battery saver is now non-customisable (like stock Lollipop), I can no longer control what happens when it goes into battery saver mode, I used to be able to control it in KitKat.
But thank my lucky stars I still have an ugly Contacts/Phone app and an even uglier set of emoticons, why not go stock with THAT LG?
Lollipop's still a good update, but little things like these are just smh
Just 5.5hrs after full charge (with screen on-time of 2hrs 20mins) and the charge is down to 15%. 24% of the battery life is taken by "Android System" and "Android OS". What exactly do these 2 battery drain sources mean? And is the battery this bad with the Moto X 2014 for anyone else who has used this phone?
Doesn't help that the last update was just the 5.0 update a few months ago, and it doesn't look like the point update bug fixes for Lollipop will be reaching the G3. I wouldn't complain if it was working fine, but this battery life is a JOKE badly needing a fix.
Contacting LG support gives the usual "We are waiting for Google to prepare the update for us" automated oblivious reply.
Any suggestions for saving battery? I'll probably stick to Nexus or Motorola models in future just so issues like this will be quickly fixed with updates 😡😡.
Another thing you can do is set WiFi to turn off when your screen goes off.
Settings> WiFi> dot menu (top right)> Advanced WiFi> keep WiFi on when screen is off> only when plugged in.
Also, you can uncheck allow WiFi scanning
52GB+ over WiFi and 330MB in one night over mobile data. My home WiFi is limited, and thus screwed up the rest of my month, and my mobile data just went over limit with 5 days remaining.
The excessive WiFi usage occurred around the time I switched on Google Photos syncing, but I always manually switched it off at home and switched it on only at uni on uni WiFi. And the content to be backed up was around 4GB, doesn't exactly explain using up 52GB. And I have no idea why it used up 330MB over mobile data. Plus, the settings don't give an option to block Google Services over mobile data, had to use Opera Max to block it.
Any idea why Google Services is draining this much data (besides the usual battery drain)?
Edit: according to my service provider, around 40GB of data was UPLOADED over my home WiFi :/
Play Store updates are not automatic on my phone :/ and I've edited my post to mention around 40GB was actually uploaded, not downloaded
besides Google Photos, nope.
I'm using a LG G3 on Lollipop btw.
And then there's the 300MB+ background mobile data usage that's given me an excess charge as well. Google Photos backups and account syncing are only set to occur over WiFi 😡😬😠
The Contacts app and Phone app are really mehhh after using Nexus apps. It's also a real bummer very few apps support the dual screen & floating window features
Besides that, AWESOME phone.
