Most everything works fine, except I’m also having a battery drain issue. Normally, overnight battery drain is around 5%, a little more if there’s bad reception, but not much more. After the latest update the overnight battery drain has been major. For example, last night I went to bed with 94% battery and woke up this morning at 15% battery where normally I would have had around 90% battery this morning. I waited about a week to post this because I know there can be some battery issues after an update that work themselves out quickly, but this doesn’t seem to be correcting itself.
Just a wild guess: You probably rarely reboot your device (except for the obligatory reboot in the course of an /e/OS update)? My assumption is that following a reboot, Media Storage will rescan your device for media contents which might take some time and energy if there’s a lot of the latter stored on it. Once that scan is completed, battery usage from media storage should drop to a low level again.
On my own device (that holds 200+ GB of music), I have stopped this problem by using VLC and switching off that automatic scan in VLC.
ok, I actually meant to recommend VLC in this respect because it allows you to disenable the scan. My actual “suspect” for keeping Media Storage “busy” would be the Music app (or any other media player that will not allow to disenable the scan). But I guess in your case the load sounds manageable and might not require what I did (basically I’m navigating my music folder-based only).
