How do i uninstall Bixby?
Under the latest OTA software update that went live this morning then the Bixby Key can be remapped via the 'Advanced Features' tab. Let's you set single press to invoke another app or function.
Other than that its ADB
left the house today at 8:25am UK time with 100% battery. Its now 11:12am UK time and im down to 90% and I been using my phone all morning. Just go to your device care APP in settings and play around with the optimisation of the power options.
whats your screen on time, have you been on LTE?
Thanks Richmar83! I installed the update last night and was trying to find what was "new" But, do be aware that Bixby Voice, Bixby Home, and Bixby Vision still use data and in some cases do use battery (I found this yesterday by accident) - I also found out that these are all part of your "Android System" and is automatically turned on to allow background activity (thankfully you can force stop these but they will turn on again when you restart your phone).
On a separate note, is anyone having problems with notifications not appearing? It started yesterday where I was getting whatsapp notifcations and then it stopped suddenly until I restarted my phone. Now the same with email....I was getting notifications but now again, suddenly I've stopped getting them...I haven't changed any settings (and by yesterday I mean before trying BBS via ADB...)
After removed second Sim card from phone, disabled bixby routines, the battery went back to normal. Currently testing it for a second day.
On the first day when the battery was 50% charge at 11pm, when I performed mentioned methods above, the battery went down to 15% only at 12:30pm under normal usage. After charged the battery for 1h30m until full charge, I used it under regular load (couple of phone calls, 1 VoIP call, browser usage, facebook, chats) until now (10pm) the battery lost only 26% and its current stage is 74%. Plus the galaxy watch is constanlty paired with phone. Someone before complained about LTE, but I kept it on, and bixby, but I kept it on and used it as well for several request.
