Since the latest update i am getting 4 hours tops of battery usage (even if I turn on airplane mode).  I have tried many different configurations of battery saver, duraspeed, etc.  Nothing makes a difference.  I have factory reset my phone and just using the initial apps loaded on the phone and not downloading anything else I am seeing poor batter performance.  

I have tried many different battery saver apps and nothing seems to work.  

At 4 hours battery life this isn't even a toy.  It is almost unusable.  Please either make the previous firmware available or update the firmware to address these battery issue.  All of this on the "ro" version.

Latest update turns off the clock in the notification bar at the top.   I don't see any option to re-enable this in the settings.  How do I make the clock appear again?
EDIT:  Solved this by enabling the System UI Tuner (long-hold the gear icon in the drop down notification pane, then go to Settings->System UI Tuner), and then disable and then re-enable any of the settings.   When you make a change in there the clock instantly comes back.    This works until Unihertz fixes it and provides an option in the normal settings menues.

8.1 fails to install! "Can't load Android system. Your data may be corrupt." Factory reset only option it appears after restarting 3 times and getting same message. Argh!

Seems from reading this thread the GPS may not be fixed. I only want this phone to work during my runs 4 times per week but so far it's nothing but trouble.
Update: July 14th, 2018. After going through the annoyance of a factory reset the phone so far is performing better on 8.1.

GPS is locking with reasonable speed on Google Maps and Strava. Previously it would take many minutes to find my location if I got lost on a long run. Distance accuracy is still not great with a result of .91 km vs .86 km on my Polar V800 watch. This is due to the jumping around I can see on the Strava track.

My Polar V800 watch Bluetooth paired first try with the Jelly Pro this time. It used to take many tries.

I still have a major battery issue where the phone will suddenly shut down despite having 60% battery on the display. My Nexus 6P behaved like this until I replaced its battery.

Hopefully replacing the battery will be the final step in making it useable again.

I do appreciate Unihertz updating the phone to 8.1 and also removing some of the extremely annoying apps such as the one that blocked background processes. 8.1 also let me uninstall the factory Calendar App and replace with Google Calendar.

No, you can't, because @jelly @admin don't want to see a community doing a better ROM than them.
: ...

they would get many more customers and sales if there were custom roms for this! no one is buying this phone for the rom... I would love to see LinageOS with inbuilt microG support.

Has anybody got microG working? I bricked the phone manually deleting the priv-apps, will keep trying when i have some free time.... removing google play services & other gapps improves battery life dramatically for me, on other devices.

Hallo Kevin
Für das JellyPro ist das Update bei mir in Deutschland am 16.10 eingetroffen,für das Jelly ist es noch nicht verfügbar.
Die Batterieleistung ist bei Pro unter 6 Std. und beim Jelly gut 1,5Tage.
Also rate ich Dir erstmal auf das Update zu verzichten.

Bis danni,Gruß Manni

After updating the battery drains significantly faster. From full charge, the battery drained to 70% 2 hours later. At first it looked like Google Services was doing this, but I disabled almost everything on the phone and it was still happening.

When looking at the battery usage, you can see that the phone never goes to "sleep." It is awake constantly, even when the screen is off and nothing seems to be running in the background.

After a factory reset, the new firmware automatically updated. Same story after full charge. 100% to 78% in 90 minutes without any use. Only 5% of the battery usage was accounted for (screen and android system). The rest is a mystery, but it was awake this entire time.

How can I revert back to the original firmware?

Thanks for the update.

Will there be an update to fix the Adoptable Storage bug? If SD card is used as Adoptable Storage, when Jelly smartphone is restarted, it can't get past the boot logo.

So far so good! I'll report back about the battery usage, but I didn't have problem with the original FW, so if this will be at least as good, then I'm fine.
