Would upgrading from 4.0.4 to 4.1.1 for Canvas 2 A110 use less system resources?

I mean when it is upgraded to 4.1.1 would the random memory usage and system resources like battery, speed, and processor load be less in 4.1.1?

    Hello Drsunil. Well, most probably, it would be the opposite way round. If this is an official upgrade by your manufacturer, then like for almost any device, a software update means a somewhat slower overall experience and lesser battery life. Else, if you are doing it yourself (flashing the phone using a ROM), then it depends on the ROM you are using. Some ROMs are optimized for better performance, while some are for better battery life and some can do both!

    I would suggest going for the upgrade.

    Good luck!

      (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

      You mean official upgrade is less advantageous than custom manual upgrade?

      In most cases, yes, it is but it is a lot safer too. Manually upgrading your OS means voiding your waranty and if something goes wrong, you would have to shell out a lot of money to get it back to normal, which can be sometimes easy enough to be done by yourself (if you know how to) or can be nearly impossible (like in case of a hardbrick).

      I'd suggest you first see if you like any custom ROM and are well versed with all the aspects of things like rooting and flashing. If you are confident enough and if the official update doesn't bring much changes, go for the 'manual' process.

    Usually,update for a device is delivered for making its performance better while bringing in new features.I searched online for some issues and didn't find anything.

    If you are apprehensive about the issues it can bring,then wait for sometime to see any incoming issues persists in this update.
