So I've just switched over to a s10+ from iPhone  x and don't get me wrong I'm loving the phone but to me seems the battery life is pritty poor, sent a few emails this morning and lost 5% on battery life?????

Same thing happened to me.  To disable double tap And lift to wake go to Settings>Advanced Features>Motions and Gestures in Settings and turn them off.

FYI - this post might be useful: https://forum.xda-developers.com/s10-plus/how-to/galaxy-s10-battery-optimisation-guide-t3911988

 

I had done a number of those optimizations on my last device which did nothing.  I've done some of them on this device which I think might have done something....as an FYI I also went and disabled Device Security per the instructions above.  This morning I used my phone doing heavier tasking while on my way to work and I've "saved" about 2% battery from yesterday.

 

I am wanting to try Face Slim instead of the native FB app(s) and see if there is a difference as well - numerous people have said it is SO much better than regular FB services, particularly on battery.  I've also been wanting to try Adhell 3 but haven't had enough time to mess around with keys (this seems to be the sticking point for a lot of people trying to enable it).  Still not able to adapt to the "night mode" settings - just too hard on my eyes.

I had a look for device security but couldn't find it 😕 is this just a snapdragon thing? I'm using a UK EE handset - in apps there nothing at all that says device security . . . .

I'm currently on 1d 11h - SOT 3h 20 mins with 23% left - this has been me using it off and on - tomorrow I go to London on a coach from Liverpool (6hrs :D) this will mean I can really give this S10 a battering - more than likely netflix for hours on end.

The battery life is horrendous - my S8 lasted longer than the S10 and it was supposedly a smaller battery..

I've done all the things they suggest to save power but short of leaving my phone and not touching it all day it doesn't last at all. Think it's scary that as soon as you take it off charge it drops down 1% - that can't be good.

No - definitely exynos version (I'm in the UK) but unlocked.  If you go into settings and search for device security, it should come up as an app.  Apparently wiping the data is enough to disable the device security app (apparently it should be off by default for any EU models but I've wiped anyways)

It probably the balanced charging. To stop your phone and battery burning out while on the charger, it will get to a 100%, stop charging, and then start again when needed, going back up to 100%. Probably you just unplugged it near the beginning of the recharge cycle and its closer to 99% than 100%

How long do u want phone to last?  I'm happy charging every night have always done that so as long as this s10 plus lasts me whole days then what's the issue? Btw it lasts all days brightness on 90% and on optimised setting mix of wifi and mobile data.. anything from 2-3 and 6-7sot depending on what I'm doing on particular days..
