    MAJOR battery drain. Charged with phone on for an hour and only got 2%. Before the update, half an hour charge got me at least 25%. Charged to full (with phone off) before leaving work, 2 hour later, I’m at 35% – usage same as before update.
    Walkman plays one song at a time, to play the next song I have to wake the screen.
