Having terrible battery drain when the phone is not even in use and no background apps. My note 10 plus never had this issue. Last night I went to bed with 26 percent at 10 pm and at 6am this morning the phone was dead

I've just received mine today from Samsung UK @kradcliffe and I've just set it up and tweaked it's preferences settings to suit what I want and need. However i won't throttle it's features or refresh rate.

 

I'll monitor the phone and it's output for around 10 days.

 

If the phone gives me a days usage from my usual usage habits I'll be OK with that as that is what I can easily achieve from my N10+ 5G.

 

If it does not then I'll take advantage of the 28 day return period Samsung offer.

unfortunately, I needed to recharge mine at 6pm today when it lost 85% of its charge in less than 8 hours of moderate use , it is hardly better than my X- Note 4 in this aspect.!! hope Samsung could do something in response to prevent plenty of devices returns in first month.

Not the software battery consuming, it should all be the problem of Exynos 990, same as in Galaxy S20 ultra, perhaps no solution in short time or never.

Both Exynos and SnapDragon owners are reporting battery drain @Members_hbugIiM 

 

SnapDragon gives around 1 hour more battery than the Exynos from what I've seen and it performs better after extended game play.

I've had the Note 20 Ultra 3 and half days now. The first 24 hours, I had the same experience the battery died really quickly. All I'd done is use the camera and set it up and taken a few calls on it. Also, I found it heating up really easily. By the end of the first day and a half I was all for sending it back.

However, on the second full day and it's second full charge, I had completely opposite experience. I used the phone roughly the same as I did the previous day but by the end of the second 24 hour period, I still had just under 50 percent battery left. So much better than the day before, plus no over heating at all.

Today is the the 3rd full day, I charged it to 100 percent last night and as it stands now, at 11.20pm, I still have 69 percent battery left.

So it seems the battery life and phone performance has improved significantly, the more the battery has been charged. It seems to have regulated/calibrated itself. 'Will see how the next few days pan out.

Yep , I've only had it 3 1/2 days and the battery life has got better each day. I'm sitting here, end of day 3 on 69% which is pretty ***** good by any phone's standard. Stark contrast to day one (first 24 hours after a full charge), where the battery drained completely, well before the initial 24 hours were up. Will see what happens over the next few days.

Mines shocking too lucky to hit 4hrs sot with very light use
no gaming just web browsing and fb
My iPhone 11 pro would be on 60%+ battery with same usage
I'll give it a few more days and send back if it doesn't improve
gon a try wiping phone and reset it using android recovery and see if that makes a difference

I typically get around 6.5'ish hours screen on time with my Note 10+ 5G so if it's near or on par with that and my usage pattern I'll be OK with the phone.

 

A day's usage is my own personal benchmark for a phone.

 

Time will tell over the next 10 or so days while it settles and updates.

What samsung is claiming about the battery life Samsung note 20 Ultra 5g is not up to mark

It keeps on draining quickly when phone is not in use, just for charge i am using 45watt ultra fast charger..but if samsung has to provide quick update to improve battery life...right now its the Worst..i have to charge atleast twice in a day, my usage is very normal
