Ok .

So my Battery life seems to have improved a bit with the July update after taking a nose dive from the May update.

Below is on WiFi at home whole day with gaming and stuff.


I have noticed since the may update that 'google play services seems to be using a lot of battery and I have seen this on most of the screenshots people are posting.

Samsung please fix this.


Please note :

I ran my phone to 0% charged to 100% and now will run down to Zero and see if it holds the battery.

Mine hasn't and I think it's Always on Display that's the problem , I've turned that off and battery is now how it used to be , Always on Display is top of the list for battery usage

What is your display brightness set at? That plays an important role in battery life. Apart from gaming and those other power hungry apps listed.

Mine is All auto or adaptive except power saving mode.

With Auto power saving mode probably get more but then it reduces to 60 htz and turns 5g off.

I use the adaptive brightness setting on my A53 5G too. I'm impressed at how good adaptive brightness has got with my A53. I never would use it on previous handsets as it was quite shocking in deciding what brightness levels to use.
I hope your phone's battery improves even more with future software updates.
I could say to get rid of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and you'd be amazed at the battery life then. I understand though how popular those apps are to people 👍🏻

Unfortunately can't get rid of Facebook or Instagram.

Only block them, so I just use them .

I have blocked auto video loading on FB so that may help a bit.

Also under app permissions I have only kept a few apps for locations and most apps don't have background data.

Are you sure you have the July update? My s21 ultra is still on the June update (uk unlocked and carrier free).

I changed CSC to DBT Germany. As it gets updates faster.

The July update is already out.

UK is normally 2-3 weeks behind.
