Poor battery life


Battery hasnt been performing great on s10 plus lately since the last few beta updates. 

Medium power saving on ,screen not even 25 percent brightness most of the time , optimise settings on ,location off ,bluetooth off ,always on display off ,nfc off ,most apps sleeping in background ,screen on fhd and getting about 6 hours sot, no phonecalls made hardly.

Wow I get around 5 to 6 SOT hours on optimised with Location, NFC, Wi-fi, Data, Bluetooth.. also auto brightness on.

I would look at what is using the most ram as these are normally the culprits, also set you phone to auto restart every few nights. One of the big battery eaters is if you have more than one Google account or an app that uses notification listeners and location in the background

Hey @Christo1986 


Following what @BenGinders has written is a good way to fix your problem :thumbs-up-sign-emoji-modifier-fitzpatrick-type:

What I could add on to that is to share en error report with us via Beta Feedback option in Samsung Members app.

There might be a background process that drains your battery way more than it should and our development team could find it with the log files to analyze :smiling-face:


I've noticed  a marked improvement since the last beta. There was a huge dip at first, but I suppose that's to be expected. 

Helping Hand

I submitted feedback about bad battery life on one of the previous betas and received a reply today. 

Was a nice breakdown of what apps or processes were running in the background or regularly becoming active. 

Was fairly helpful. 


Dont suppose you have that response to paste?I'd be interested to see it .

I've tried everything and I just dont rate the battery on this device at all compared to what's out there .

For a 4100 mah battery it should perform much better imo.


@Christo1986 I'm on an S10 but I guess the suggestions are relevant for the whole S10 range.

Screenshots because I can't seem to copy from the feedback reply. 


I do regularly wake my screen to check the time and notification icons I've added notifications to AOD so no longer need to take the device, but its a difficult habit to break. 

I might turn off facial recognition instead, so the camera isnt being initialised every time I wake the screen - not something I thought about before but it was a good point.

That's great ,thanks for that I will give this a read ,much appreciated ! 


Well i tried all this and still end up with about 6 hour sot , the battery performance drains on the s10 like it isnt optimised ,I've used Samsung phones for a long time now and had many many other flagship smartphones and battery life on samsung behaves very odd and always has .

They almost drain like a normal battery would in an appliance .

It needs addressing ,theres no point in pretending it's good when it isnt .

You can have everything enabled and it would perform similar with the same sot time with the same things disabled ,theres no optimisation.
