Micromax In 1 users are complaining of a severe battery drain issue after installing a recent update. The update was released earlier this month along with the August security patch and a few optimisations. However, several users have taken to Twitter to report that they started facing battery drainage problems and battery swelling issues on their Micromax In 1 smartphone after installing the update. The issue is apparently not limited to the Micromax In 1 unit and seems to have impacted people using Micromax In Note 1 model as well.
As per user reports on Twitter, a growing number of Micromax In 1 and Micromax In Note 1 owners are facing excessive battery drainage after installing the latest over-the-air (OTA) firmware update. A user said that their Micromax In Note 1 battery drained down from 100 percent to 10 percent in three hours.
A Micromax In 1 user tweeted that the company rolled out an August patch update after a year since its launch. He claimed that the phone’s battery started draining rapidly after installing the security update and a couple of days later the battery had started swelling.
Micromax has not acknowledged the issues reported by users yet.
