Like with several other models, my battery is suddenly draining rapidly. 30 minutes of scrolling on reddit normally costs a few percent but it drained roughly 1% battery life per minute. I had to charge my phone 3 times to get through the day and I didn't even actively use it more than I normally do. This is absurd! Even on battery saving mode it still loses more juice than it did on normal mode yesterday.

Hey there

Have you performed a Wipe Partition Cache on your device at all since you got your phone?

Would recommend you do and then give it a few days for your device to re-optimise battery.

6. Press Power key to select.
7. Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
8. When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.

I have the same issue with my Samsung A52, had it for less than 2 years and its been running perfectly, updated it 2 days ago and since then my phone has been draining battery extremely quick and is very warm to touch! I have tried doing the Wipe Cache Partition thing and it hasn't made a difference!

Its a nice ploy to force customers to buy a new phone, I knew I shouldn't have done the update, this always happens!

I did earlier today, it doesn't help just yet but I'll give it some time. I did figure out that Quick Share had been activated, turning that off does mitigate the issue. The battery monitor in the settings menu lists Google play-services as the biggest culprit even though it's running in the background 9/10 times.

Weird thing is, I didn't even did a big software/firmware update, only a small one for whatsapp. Somehow, Quick Share got activated and deactivating that seems to help a little. Haven't done a full factory reset yet though, might try that if nothing changed.
