Here are some tips from me:

• Keep Dark Mode on at all times if you don't mind.

• Go to Settings, then Connections, go to More Connection Settings and turn Nearby Device Scanning off (it wastes a lot of battery).

• Uninstall any unused apps, it will save memory and reduce the background battery drain.

• Use a darker wallpaper if possible.

• Turn off NFC, Wifi, Bluetooth and etc when you aren't using them as it will save lots of battery.

Please let me know if you see better battery life on your phone after you use these tips. Hope this helped!

I have the S21+ and it took mine about a week to optimise the battery. After that it seems to have improved a lot. You can check in the device care section of settings.

the battery life isn't great but I'd expect with most phones you would need to charge every day. 4 charges in 4 days is about as good as you'll get im afraid.

nnoooo that's not good at all. battery should last more than 1 day, as per TV ad!

the ultra will as it has a much bigger battery. but I've yet to have more than 6ish hours of on screen time with my base 21 yet. if you don't use it will last longer than a day but that's pointless isn't it
