Hello,I am the person that will be helping you today.
May i ask for the brand and model name of your phone?

You may revert back to factory settings, which will erase everything including the problems by following the instructions below:
- Turn the phone off.
- Press and hold the Volume Up/Down buttons and then press the Power button.
- When you see the Boot Mode Selection Menu, let go of all buttons.
- Press the Volume Down button to tap Recovery, then press the Volume Up button.
- From the triage screen, press and hold the Volume Down button, then press and release the Volume Up button, and then let go of the Volume Down button.
- Choose "Wipe data" or "Factory Reset" (Use the volume keys to move the selection and use the power button to choose the option)
- Choose "Yes -- delete all user data"
- Choose "reboot system now"
Once that is complete, your phone will be reset and the problem will be gone.

I am very confused. You asked for instructions on how to revert back to factory settings. I gave those instructions.
Was that not your goal?
Do not rate my service until you are done. When you rate my service, we are done and your payment is sent.
I have run out of ideas.
For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.
The next expert will see all that is on this page, so there will be no need to repeat anything.
When another expert picks this up, you will be notified by email.
Thank you for your patience.
running the updates will actually help in this case
one of the newer updates to android is an app that lets you streamline the power usage by turning things off when they have not been used for xx amount of time
the advantage in this case is that the google apps cant be removed without screwing up the phone and they like to stay active forever just checking your usage for advertising purposes. so if you can set them off until actually used ( like the google game service will only be opened when you actually play a game) that should save some battery power.
Other things to look at are screen brightness and how long the screen stays open when you haven't clicked it.
if you go to settings / smart manager / battery
under app power settings click detail
that should give you a list of all the apps and you can put the google apps on power save
my screen goes dim after about 30 seconds. It drives my wife crazy when she tries to use it. But it doesnt bother me that much and it saves a lot of power. You might try knocking it down a bit.
but tbh what is probably screwing you up at this point is not doing the updates. It is the fact that it is constantly asking you to do the updates that is drawing more power than the updates would. they don't expect you to do anything but say yes to the updates so it is not streamlined for power saving. Rather it just keeps running and running looking at your phone and deciding you need updates and popping it up over and over asking you to update it.
I am not sure if you can turn that off. But i think not. It is probably easier to just let it update. It will draw a lot less power after the update than it will asking you to do the update.
no such thing. google is part of the android system
to avoid it you need a new phone.
you would need a non android phone either an iphone or a windows phone.
but what has changed is that you have not accepted the updates. You think that it will stay the same without doing the updates as that would make sense logically.
what changed is that the updates are now available. And the phone spends a lot of battery power telling you that they are there and waiting for you to do them over and over.
I just had this same situation with somebody else for a different upgrade. The not doing the upgrade caused a huge battery drain just from it constantly saying "you need to do the upgrade"
Sorry. Technically you can remove all of the Google apps from your Android phone. But you won't have much of a phone left. Just about every app depends on them for one thing or another
But since you have already made up your mind that it's a more professional solution to rip the guts out of your phone than to just do the simple update I don't think I can help you. As a professional I work on the principal of making sure that your device keeps working which usually means doing things the way the manufacturers suggest doing them
