Nougat on HTC 10

Looks like that did fix it Mike. What is the side effect having to enter settings for all apps?

No, strangely it didn't apparently loose any settings, passwords or even game progess !! Everything appears same as before.

Yet i went through all the volume / power button reboot steps, drilled down to "Wipe Cache" and clicked the confirmation to proceed, after which it rebooted, so i guess it wiped it OK ?

Hmm I'd have thought so, but I would have expected some settings for the system (if not apps) that would have needed changing.

Possibly, I guess the pointer is for expected things not happening.

Screen-on battery drain is still a little heavier than i would like and got as high as 20% per hour at one point.

I am currently trying various internet suggestions, such as resetting app permissions and toggling Backup off and then back on following a reboot and things have improved slightly. There are mixed reports about the effectiveness of a full hard reset on this issue.

There are a lot of reports of observed heavier battery drain across various devices, since updating to Nougat 7.0, with "Google Play Services" being the main culprit. It is difficult to track it down with Nougat on an unrooted device, as all app power drains are lumped together by Android, so battery management apps cant give accurate usage per app anymore.

It isn't the end of the world for me, but something definitely isn't right with Nougat 7.0 and i don't hold out much hope of HTC releasing 7.1 or 7.11 anytime soon, going off the pantomime we had getting 7.0

If it causes real problems for me, i will try to track down an HTC Marshmallow factory image and reload that.

Still working well for me now with few battery issues. Changing AV to Bitdefender has solved a lot of my operational glitches and I'm loving my new launcher I'm playing with. Silly grin time, really enjoying the phone at the moment.

Yep I'm now playing very nicely with SquareHome 2, which is inspired by the WP Metro interface. Amazingly efficient!

Nougat is still good for me and no problem with Nine at all, emails seem to come in within seconds. Neil are you still running Webroot on the machine, if so try removing it to see if that fixes your background issues. Since I got rid of it and went with Bitdefender all by background operational issues seem to have vanished.

After going through the system and turning off all the uneccesary stuff, and also trying all the suggested interweb fixs of cache clearing etc, the battery drain seems to have now settled down to about 10 to 15% per hour of screen-on usage, which is not far off where it was pre Nougat.

Standby / sleep battery drain is OK, with the system usually showing a projection of 3+ days of standby.

Glad to hear you've cracked it Mike. Did you find any specific culprits?

The Google account had everything turned up to 11, where it didnt before. Google play had pretty much all options enabled too.

Ouch, not good that. I'll double check mine now you've mentioned that!
