I saw from several sites that exynos variant has A really bad battery optimization problem compared to the snapdragon variant. I still dont own the phone because the release date in my country is later this month. I still dont know if this issue is software related or hardware related.? would Sammy fix it ?/ and when? I hope is ASAP because , im still stuck with my S6 and i really love samsung devices but this news are preventing me from upgrading to S9+.
Im really hoping that all those news around the net are fake news or 1 in a million case :smileysad:
I can confirm poor battery life with s9+ on Exynos processor.
If it is related to software or hardware I don't know, but expect Samsung to fix this asap.
For me it is not acceptable that flagship phone is not able to least on battery whole day with very limited use actually.
I am now on medium battery saver mode with reduced brigthtness, processor speed, FHD+ only, using greenify to hibernate apps, as well as SABS to reduce bloatware and still need to recharge phone during day if I want to have 5h of SoT...
I am not hardcore user, for example now I have 74% after 5h on battery with 1,5h of SoT and for me this result is a little bit poor when I consider all battery saver options that are active.
Samsung should fix this soon, as I don't want to have only flagship on papper and i reality I cannot use all of it performance because of battery....
Welcome to the Community! :smileyhappy:
them it seems my S6 is still better battery wise.
both things perfomance and energy consumption are the two things that are failing according to must sites :smileymad: plz sammy do something i dont want a new paperweight that cost more than 1000$+.
I have "upgraded" from S6 Edge and I was hoping for significantly better battery life, but honestly I can't see much of a difference between over 2 year old S6 and S9.
