So I am having battery life issues with my Samsung galaxy S20 5G. Is the upgrade to S21 worth it (base model)?

First tip, always keep dark mode on if thats ok, secondly, go to settings, then go to connections, go to more connection settings and turn off nearby device scanning as this uses a lot of battery in the background, and the third tip is to uninstall any apps that you don't use because the less apps there are, the less that your battery will be wasted in the background. Before I changed all these settings on my s20 plus, the battery would last about 6.5 hours but now I have changed the settings, the battery gives me about 9 to 10 hours before it dies which is a huge improvement. Please use these tips and you will have a much longer lasting phone and battery. Hope this helped!

the battery life will be better but not by a huge margin I wouldn't upgrade just for this reason. I was considering the same idea. if you want good battery you would need to look at the plus or ultra but for me personally they are too big and too expensive so waiting for s22

also you got to remember the s21 is a downgrade in some ways, you get a plastic back, no sd card slot and only a FHD screen, what you do get is slightly better battery life and better camera
