Exynos S10+ Battery drain on Beta

Highlighted
Navigator

My exynos s10+ is DRAINING excessively with the new beta software. While I was sleeping, the phone has lost nearly 23% of its power where the screen is on for just 20 minutes post a full charge. The power management for the exynos was already very bad with the Android Pie software for the exynos variants. (unfortunately I am unable to attach the screenshot with this post) 

 

The general expectation is that with a newer version of OS the battery should always get better no matter what. I believe that should be the same with my phone as well. 


I wish this issue gets fixed somehow. I have already submitted a report as well. 

 

@TomaszT just tagging u to bring the issue to your notice.

Go to device care, click the three dots on the right hand corner, press advanced and turn on optimise settings. It saves battery while your phone is not in use.

 

My battery massively improved after turning this on. My standby drain overnight was 2% compared to the 10% I was getting before I turned it on. My battery doesn't drain as easily during the day now.

Thanks buddy. But I already have it turned on and I also have a lot of other optimisations turned on as well. For instance the power mode is also on optimised.

Hey @Arshaa 

 

Thanks for bringing it up to my attention!

From what I was told by the development team, there have been some battery optimization tweaks implemented in Beta binary. 

Also, they have said that after a software update, it might take 3-4 days for the battery to stabilize.

But they will definitely look into that :winking-face:

Hi @TomaszT

 

That definitely shouldn't mean that post every update I will have power only to last for a meager of 6 to 8 hours. This definitely doesn't seem like something to wait and settle for.

 

Anyhow, looking forward to the next beta update expecting better performance. 

 

Thanks. 

 

Fortunately I am able to add the screenshot from before now.

I have massive battery usage too.

Zero screen on time over night, 

Lost nearly 40% in 8 hours.

Granted I did only install the beta 24 hours ago, but if this keeps up, the beta will have to go.

S10e exynos.

 

Edit, I will try a reset and see if that helps and report back.

Also, I am unable to add photos to this page.

When I click the camera icon, I just get a grey page displaying a broken link icon, and "tap for upload options"

Tapping does nothing.

A cache partition wipe has fixed battery problemScreenshot_20191103-081208_Device care.jpg

Mines been draining since the last beta, application com.sec.epdg keeps closing. Didn't know until I turned on background errors. Causes momentary lag also when it quits.

@Gav4b Is that a standard S10, not an S10e or an S10+?
What processor is it - exynos or snapdragon?

I'm lucky if I get 5 hours total OST, so your 4 hours at 50% seems like a distant dream to me.

It's just the S10 g973f UK model
