Are Samsung going to release a patch for the N20 Ultra poor battery life on Exynos?

Well that's nearly 2 weeks with the handset and the battery life has not improved as they said it would.

Shutting down this, changing that, turning off 5G, changing display settings .... nothing has made any real difference.

We're lucky in the UK having 28 days for returns but it would be nice if Samsung could acknowledge if they consider the widely publicized poor battery life as an actual issue and that they are working on a fix.

If nothing is going to be changed I'd be as well return the handset now and look for something else.

 

I'm not even sure if Samsung even read posts on their own forums, there's only one guy ever seems to respond but he's nothing to do with Samsung (apparently)

All very well but the apparent lack of testing prior to release would have stopped so many handsets being returned and all the bad publicity. Interesting the reviewers never picked this up!

I have had my Exynos for two weeks now and I'm on 8-9 SoT, nothing turned off or down to achieve that.
My Note 10 plus 5G was a bit better though but the difference is maybe 10%
I'll take the 120hz display over that no problem.

That's pretty impressive SOT ?

 

Can you put up a screenshot of your battery stats from Device Care please ?

Battery life on my Exynos Note 20 Ultra has definitely got better since I first got it (launch day). Personally for me I'm getting around 6-7 hours of screen on time. I would consider myself to be a medium power user (gaming, camera, YouTube, Spotify bluetooth etc).

I did a factory reset and never restored settings in the backup. Got nearly 6 hours SOT with the display around 50 percent. Not brilliant but probably OK.

It is like Samsung is running a scam by not telling its customers that their phone is much more inferior than the one being sold in the US and even in their home market S.Korea.

 

This will be my last Samsung for sure back to iPhone

Took the phone off charge at 5pm tonight, home after midnight and still 77 percent left. That's pretty decent.
