Galaxy Book Pro 360 Battery Life

It appears that my Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 13.3 inch (Evo) battery life might be better than my Galaxy book S Qualcomm.

See photo below. I have stopped a lot of background apps from running, also I stopped Widgets via Gpedit. I've also removed a lot of apps I do not use. In real life usage (Word, PowerPoint, Internet, emails) I'm expecting two 8 hour days on a single charge.

I've also just started an experiment with the dark screen since it appears Amoled can save up to 25% power and take advantage of Amoled technology. I will see if it makes any difference.
