Hi everyone, I bought my A54 a month ago and I am using it, as suggested online, with 5G OFF, Adaptive Brigthenss OFF, RAM Plus OFF, Localisation when offline OFF.

 

However, it lasts about 5 hours of SOT. I do not use games and not even youtube, it is mostly Instagram and whatsapp. 

In the screenshot attached, with 4.5hrs of SOT it reached 12%.

Should I go to warranty and ask for a replacement?

I find those apps you mentioned are one of the worse for draining your battery down. YouTube isn't bad for that.

Nothing wrong with your phone. Between Instagram and WhatsApp almost 20% of your battery charge has been used in a short time frame.
These apps are well known as the cause of very high battery drain.

For those Apps, that's ok
I wouldn't really read too much into your SOT. That's ment to show you roughly how much you are using the phone. It's not measure of battery life.
As battery life depends on what you have Installed, and running in the background. What screen brightness etc etc settings you have
Unfortunately things like Facebook, Instagram and some various chat apps can and usually do use a big proportion of battery percentage. They can constantly refresh in the background.
Have a look into app settings and permissions to see if you can reduce how they affect the battery percentage

Your phone is fine insta is one of the worst battery apps along with tick tok. Its all about which app and how you use your phone. At home my ultra pulls 10 hours sot easily. Right now I'm on holiday with poor signal using a horrendous app called discovery + to watch programs on and I'm pulling 6 hours. So all depends on what your doing
