i got this phone and tested it with my regular usage which is very heavy full brightness etc, and compared to my mate 10 pro which gets 8 9 hours screen on time with the same usage the s21 ultra gets 5 hours that is not acceptable

 

the s21 ultra also has the dreaded warm display that i hate with samsung phones it's like it's a rule now with samsung phones to make displays way too warm, it feels slightly better than the fold 2 but it is nowhere near as cold as my xperia xz1 or mate 10 pro (coldest setting)

Just out of curiosity what tasks did you do?

Also not heard of this dreaded warm display of Samsungs. What I do know is that your S21 Ultra has a max brightness over 2 times brighter than your mate 10 Pro, so if you just crank the phones up to 100%, don't expect equal battery drain and heat production.

If you are doing a lot of app installation, it will get hot for the first time as lots of modem, data transfer is very intensive a task. Once set up you shouldn't have any more issues with battery life or heat.

This is one of my recent SoT usage from full battery.
