Sudden Battery issues

In the last week or so my S20 FE 5G battery drains very fast. The phone is constantly warm and when I charge it (several times a day) it takes much longer to fully charge - whether by regular or Fast Charging adapter.

This started suddenly, without any change in use or installation of new apps. I have tried many tips to consume less battery (background apps, dimming display, etc.) but to no noticeable change.

The only event that may be related to the onset of the issues is a One UI 5.1 system update on Feb 14, 2024.

Any similar issues around this time? Any advice?

Thanks!

Update 14/03

For some reason and I'm still scratching my head... My battery performance has improved significantly, back to previous state. No changes made. 

So I would recommend people still facing this issue to give it 1-2 weeks. (I know painstakingly long...)

Cheers :smiling-face:

Yes, my battery performance is back to normal too! The return to normal was not as sudden as the deterioration, but within 2-3 days (starting about 10 days ago), I got the same performance I was used to: battery lasts almost all day, fast charge time is... fast, and phone is cold to touch.

No updates or any other changes, so this is a mystery to me. The fact that other experienced the same down-and-up tells me it must be a common Samsung software. Let's hope this lasts...
