Massive drop in battery life after June security update!

Used to get 8 hrs 30 mins screen on time but now after June security update only just get 5 hours SOT!!!

Cleared the cache and reset the apps and had power saving option enabled.

Always seems to happen after security updates but never this bad!!

Is it a deliberate ploy to weed out older samsung models and force upgrade?? Makes you wonder!!!

Updates are always a hit and miss. I guess. That's why I keep fiddling around with my settings.

Sometimes I go dark mode, sometimes fhd+ or adaptive battery and adaptive power saving.

And sometimes I just go light mode no adaptive power saving or adaptive battery.

I have come to terms that anything over 5 hours SOT is good for me now.

I do gaming a lot if home on WiFi.

For my daily use if at work I am home with 70% battery left and then just game till 15% and then charge overnight for 100% in morning.
