I know I sound like a broken record, but the S20 5G that I have, has the worst battery I've ever had on a phone. 

Today, in less than 2hrs, my battery has drained 50%, while I've been using it. As can be seen in my screenshots.

(I've purposely used my phone a lot today, to test this, as it's been an issues since I got phone last august)
It went down 5% in the time I wrote this post.

I know I live in an area that has a bad signal, but there clearly must be a flaw/fault in my battery. 

I'm not really asking for advice, as Ive tried everything possible (factory reset, cache, power saving, deep sleep). 

I'm writing this to see if other people have such a bad experience with their phones.

Let me know, if mine is just an exception!

I was reading ebooks (offline), and just generally surfing the net. I wasn't streaming video, playing music or anything that would cause a lot of power.

To add to my post.

I let my battery deplete to 5%, then plugged it in. Within 5min, it was at 20%. Is that normal, or has my battery lost something in the way of Calibration??

turn 120hz off if your not too bothered about it as its fixed on the s20 and on mine it uses double the power,

yep. It's got to the stage where I was looking at getting a new phone, as my faith in this one is gone!! I'm never too far from a charger, but forever having to charge it doesn't do battery any good either.

yea it's a very weird problem that, definitely not normal, mine loses 1-2% an hour on standby by and that's with aod active and I can generally get 5-6 hours of screen on time,

trade in and get the s21 I had same issues with my s20 had it 4 weeks and replaced it as the battery issues were horrendous due to the old exynox processor but the s21 has the 5nm upgraded chip battery now lasts 2 days!
