Whats going on with VZW Note 2 battery life and the bootloader after the recent update?!

The Galaxy Note 2 by Samsung uses one of their in house processors, the Exynos 4412. Recently, someone found a security flaw with the Exynos that allowed a third party to control your phone and put it into a non-stop boot loop. After this, no recovery is possible.


After several weeks of discovering the flaw, Samsung has began to role out the fix via OTA. Verizon users are having some serious battery issues, however. So, one problem was fixed and another was created.

Users are reporting anywhere from ten percent to fifty percent battery time loss. The general user, though, is having roughly fifteen percent loss of usage per battery.

Why did this happen? Your guess is as good as mine. If you know any details, please share in the comments below.

Last, but most definitely not least, the recent update has also left Verizon Note 2 users that went to the trouble of unlocking their devices with a newly locked device! Verizon has snuck in a new bootloader…. What a surprise ;-).
