S10 + battery - Please help me understand

Hi guys,

 

I seriously need some help here. I bought the S 10 + a couple of days ago and I do not actually know If I get good battery results or not (do keep in mind that I have been force closing all apps after use, which I do not think should be necessary with a brand new phone). Anyhow, yesterday I got approx 5 hours of SOT and used Spotify for about 5 hours (in background) on LTE and I used Youtube for approx 3 hours (this was on Wi-Fi). The rest of the apps were Facebook, Messenger, etc.

 

Today I have these results right now (see picture). Im mostly on LTE - but at home I switch over to Wi-Fi. 

However, I want to know if these results are good or bad - since I still have the possibility of returning the phone. I have 63 % as Im writing this. But every time I open a ***** app, it seems that I lose a couple of percent. Also, according to Accubattery, my estimated battery is 3900 mAh and not 4100. 

 

I seriously do not know if I should be complaining about this or not.

Shut the adaptive battery option off, it doesn't work right, it never has and Google clearly has no intention of fixing it ever.

 

Your first issue is using social media apps in particular anything done by FB as they are known battery hogs and are constantly calling home. Use a browser to use FB and select desktop within the browser to use the messenger. Go in and disable the FB app since Samsung does not allow us to uninstall this c r ap app and is forcing it upon us. Uninstall the messenger app.

 

If you wish to keep them because you believe you absolutely need them, then you need to go through and optizme the settings for each and every app one by one social media app or not.

 

Overall your battery life isn't that bad for what you have installed and running though.

 

Your choices are keep them and optimize as best you can or get rid of them and still optimize the remaining apps.
