S10 Battery Drain


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 problem here, battery life is awful! If it’s not fixed it’ll have to go back. 

I have the same. Issues. After 14h with less than 3h screen time and no gaming I have drained the battery.

Let's hope there is a update due that will fix it, like I said I love the phone but cant play on it as long as I used play on my iPhone x with out having to charge it 

not happy at all with battery 


I seem to be having this issue with my s10+ since launch. I can be on 100% at 10am and 88% at 11am when I haven't even used it.

Really hoping Samsung fix this soon.

Having same problem,not lasting nearly as long as S8 and also switches itself on in my shirt pocket.

Never switched off but Bixby will not work from when it's in my pocket 

Hi Alex,

After posting my problem about the phone switching its screen in the shirt pocket I have found an option that takes care of that...


...Go to definitions - Advanced features - Motions & gestures - Lift to wake (toggle off) - Double tap to wake up (toggle off).


With this you'll see a big improvement.




I have the same problem. Unplugged my S10+ at 6AM with 100% it's now 4:14PM and I'm on 58% with only 56 minutes screen on time. I’m used to having around 75% from previous phones with this usage and the S10+ will be going back if this isn't fixed soon. 


Spoke to Samsung Support on the phone earlier.

Apparently the battery takes between one to two weeks to figure out our usage pattern, then the battery kicks into full throttle and we can expect better battery life. 

I have a reference number so I'll give it two weeks and see what happens.

Here's hoping.
