Huawei Nova 5T

The quad rear camera phone – Huawei Nova 5T, is powered by Kirin 980 flagship processor and comes with the latest design that interacts with the user.

Talking about its operating, it was initially packed with Android-based OS EMUI 9.1 and further receiving EMUI 10, EMUI 10.1, and EMUI 11 major software upgrades that provide a new user experience.

The EMUI 11 rollout for Nova 5T is soon going to conclude worldwide. To date, most of the devices were upgraded over EMUI 11 in different parts of the globe. The latest custom OS brings a number of new features that enhance system performance and provide a new user interface.

After installing EMUI 11, some Huawei phone users and Bjørnar Svanes from Norway reported some bugs and issues with their respective models. One thing worth mentioning, not every user is satisfied with new offerings or these updates may create some problem in existing systems.

Recently, a Huawei Nova 5T user contacted us and informed us about a WiFi network and battery drainage issue pop up on his smartphone after shifting on EMUI 11 from EMUI 10.1.

According to the user, after EMUI 11 update, he is facing problems in connecting local home WiFi and observed that the battery is draining very fast compared to the EMUI 10.1. He added that previously the WiFi gets connected normally but now many times a day “Rejected access to network” notification pop-ups.

This issue reporter believes that 99.5% it’s all happing because of the latest major update and requesting Huawei to deliver a new network stability update to resolve this problem. Also, he is regretting why he updated to the new EMUI version when he is happy with the existing version.

However, here’s a quick solution to this problem that may help.

To solve this network problem, two option are there:

  • Revert to EMUI 11 to EMUI 10.1
  • Rollback to EMUI 10.1 and re-install the EMUI 11 upgrades

We recommend the user back up the data and roll it back to EMUI 10.1 via using HiSuit app on PC and Mac. If the user wants to again upgrade to EMUI 11 then try via the HiSuite with a proper installation.

Android 13 QPR1 beta 3.1 removes Vo5G on some Pixel 7

Published

Android 13 beta

A few days ago, Google rolled out Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3.1 for beta testers, and some users reported losing Vo5G on some Google Pixel 7 smartphones. Google is rolling out the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3.1 patch (T1B3.221003.008) for Pixel 4a, 5, 5a, 6, 6 Pro, 6a, 7, and 7 Pro series devices.

Vo5G:

Vo5G is similar to the voice in today’s 4G networks. In 4G LTE, voice calls are implemented as end-to-end Voice over IP (VoIP) connections managed by an IMS core. Voice and video communication services in these networks ride on top of the IP data connection. When the call happens over LTE, it is called Voice over LTE (VoLTE), and when it is over Wi-Fi, it is known as Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi).

Issue:

A Pixel 7 user on Reddit wrote: “Just noticed that it’s gone now, was there in beta 3.0 – anyone else?” Another user in the comment replied with a solution that the Android 13 QPR1 beta 3.1 Vo5G issue may require it to re-enable manually.

  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the Google Camera app to crash.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Google Assistant from being activated by hotword on some devices.

Pixel 7 Pro Double-Tap Android 13 Beta

Android 13 QPR1 beta 3 is rolling for the Pixel smartphones but it looks like the firmware isn’t worth upgrading. The latest information reveals that a Pixel 7 Pro user cannot use the Double-Tap feature after installing the Android 13 Beta 3 update.

It’s been a week since Google released the respective update for its Pixel devices. Besides, this rollout was particularly for the Pixel 7 phones. But instead of benefits, the users are dealing with some severe issues on their devices.

Recently, a user reported that his Pixel 7 Pro Double-Tap feature isn’t responding after the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 upgrade. Though it was all good before the beta installation. Yet, after the update procedure, the feature stopped working.

“I have the Gesture – Double-Tap, back of my Pixel 7 Pro device to open the camera app. It worked fine before I added the beta and I thought it was still working. But the next day, when I swapped to a new phone case, the Double-Tap does nothing.”

The user immediately removed new cover to check whether the problem was with the phone or the case. Yet, the Double-Tap feature didn’t work.

On the other hand, the user tried tapping the phone’s back without the cover. Moreover, he altered the Gesture’s settings and reset the feature. But even after several attempts, the respective feature remained stagnant.

After this incident, many users appeared on the forum to discuss the issue. While some users were facing the same defect, a few users said that everything is alright with their Pixel & device.

Many more such issues:

It’s not the first time when the issue surfaced on Android 13 QPR1 beta 3 updates. So far, we come across many users confronting some or the other issue after the respective upgrade. Perhaps, the company hasn’t uttered any word on this matter. Let’s see whether this is the last beta rollout or if the company will release more beta updates to fix these issues.

An Android 13 user installed October 2022 Google Play update and shocked to see battery decline

Google Play October 2022 update battery decline

October 2022 update for the Google Play system packs several thoughtful features, but it looks like these features have become the reason for the battery decline of devices.

A user recently reached the Reddit forum and described the battery decline issues due to the October 2022 Google Play update. As per the statements, there was a huge battery loss after the installation of the latest Google Play iteration.

Consequently, the user restarted his device to install the October 2022 firmware. However, this restart suddenly dropped the battery level from 95 percent to 89 percent. Shockingly, there was an instant battery low of 6 percent.

Although, there is some battery consumption while installing new firmware. Therefore, it is recommended to have ample battery amount in the device. But, impulsive battery drainage just after the update has puzzled the user.

To provide a reason for this issue, an individual said that the 95% may have been a system estimate. Thereafter the processors would have reevaluated it and showed a more accurate value.

However, this reasoning didn’t satisfy the sufferer much. Instead, the user said that he used to restart his phone every day. Hence, accuracy won’t be a reason for this decline. But it could be bugs and defects of the new firmware that is disturbing the adaptive charging and its calculation.

October 2022 Google Play System Update

It’s important to draw our attention to the October 2022 Google Play system update for a while. With the onset of this month, the company has published the Android 13 October 2022 Play System Update for its users.

In this latest package, the company has added several thoughtful features and an interesting Android TV patch reminder. Notably, there were some vital amendments in the performance and network usage.

And the irony is, Google has optimized the installation operations for the Play Store and related systems. As a result, it was expected to allow faster and more reliable downloads and installation.

But things have gone quite opposite in this aspect. As per the user’s report, the installation procedure of the latest update has badly affected the device’s battery.

Could be a device issue?

Every new firmware appears on the device surface with some or the other issues. Perhaps, some easy steps and techniques resolve those issues without consuming more days. Moreover, we hadn’t found many users complaining about this part.

Thus, we could assume that there might be some fault with the device due to which the battery showed an instant decline. Yet we cannot ignore the statement, that this issue came in front of the user while installing the latest update.

It would be worth seeing whether we get any more such issues or any other defects with the same update or not.

October 2022 Google Play Update – Changelog
