Poor battery life after Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update?

If your Android phone was recently updated to Android 4.1 (aka Jelly Bean) and you have been seeing really bad battery life ever since, read on.  It could be that Google+ sync has been enabled by the update and that’s using up a lot of power.  Go to your phone’s Settings > Accounts > Google settings screen.  For every Google account listed, deselect the Google+ option.  This should bring back sane battery life to your phone.

See Demystifying Android power usage for more generic tips on saving battery life on Android devices.

  1. In settings ->Battery,it will demonstrate what is eating your battery.On the off chance that it is the screen,that implies the brightness is doing it, and you can without much of a stretch lower brightness.In the event that it is Media,then you ought to uproot the MicroSD card and check whether that explains the problem(corrupted file on the card can result in this).
