Guys new in the samsung galaxy here. Got my s10e but i am definitely not really happy with its battery life so far. Unfortunately in the UK only the exynos variant is available so this is what i got. I upload you a photo of battery usage with airplane mode constantly on, auto sync off, nightmode on. Is these numbers normal or strange? ThanksScreenshot_20190526-223609_Settings.jpg

Mine is indeed an unlocked version. It is SM-G973F/DS version  :smiling-face:

Not sure if this will help anyone but I had the S10 delivered on the day of release via a network operator and suffered battery drain.
I got a relace this monday and the first thing I did was update the it to the latest firmware and once updated, perform a factory reset.
I then did a restore via Samsung Cloud and google cloud and since been very impressed with the phones battery life.

 

Today for example - my phone has been on for 17h 54m  with 4hrs 9mins screen time

7% battery life remaining

The battery drain is now better but it is still not very good. I'm thinking about returning the device and switching to the Note 9. Should I do this?

Hello everyone! I've been following this discussion for a few days and this is my first post. I'mIfrom Bulgaria and got the S10 model (Exynos) on March 15. The first days the battery was awful but after doing all the steps for better battery+ hard reset my phone got better overall. The last 2-3 days I'm getting SOT- 6 hours and 50 minutes average. My settings are: FHD+ resolution, Optimized battery mode, Adaptive battery-on, Auto brightness-off, Night mode-on (only for the night). I'm a heavy user also. Using both WiFi and LTE, Facebook, Instagram, Netflix, Youtube, Browsing, Spotify and sometime playing games. The picture shows my last battery performance. What do you think? Do I have bad battery or not?Screenshot_20190327-141812_Settings.jpg

You are getting 18h+ standby with nearly 7h screen on time in my opinion it's very good for the S10 variant

S10+ here.
Anyone tried disabling background use for apps like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook?  +disabling most autosync items on Google accounts

Also Settings -> Google -> Location -> Recent Requests -> remove location permission / uninstall app if not needed / disable background use etc.

The coming update improves battery life, is this confirmed?

Tehki8 - I just did a search on site link and no update is available for the S10. Only the S10e a s S10+ are listed...can anyone confirm that there is a firmware update for the S10 and not the other models?

Search for this model number SM-G973F, if it's a European model

SM-G970F is the S10e model

SM-G973F is the S10 model

SM-G975F is the S10+ model

These model number are the European/global variants. 

Samsung dream to roll out update to different countries and network version in a phased approach.
