Like me GoanGeek you have one tip top S21 with a purring battery.. Just looked at my S21 Ultra and it is on 7h27 screen time after some quite heavy photo editing today and other stuff. My phone is always on 120hz with wqhd and about 40% brightness but I only use dark mode. My phone is always on 100% before use every day. You have my word that it has not been charged midday or whatever!.. lol!!.. I think people think I am fibbing when I tell them I have got 10 hours screen time on a few occasions when using my phone for a long day?... Is our screen time the norm or exception GoanGeek??.. 👍👍
That is a fair drop tinglish. Hopefully a future update will restore things for you. I find the Exynos 2100 the best chip I have ever encountered in any phone overall in terms of speed and battery life and even thermally despite it running too warm when running in. Now it rarely gets even warm even when I am hammering the camera. I really feel for people who have battery problems with their ultras though. 👍👍
Mine was very similar but one thing to consider is (if you're in the UK at least) we're in summer time now and heat will degrade battery efficiency quite considerably unlike in the earlier months this year where it was generally cold.
I still can get 10h SoT but my streaming/media consumption has mostly shifted over to my tablets now, so I generally get around 4-5h SoT in about 1.5-2 days of use.
I do have my watch and buds pro and another headset paired with the Bluetooth which is always on. Plus use both samsung health and huawei health with my huawei watch, so that might take a bit of the battery.
It still think its all down to personal usage . High end games and heavy duty apps will be taxing on the battery unless samsung optimizes more ram usage especially with the Ultra.
As I noticed I never use more than 7 gb ram although I went for the 16gb one.
So that's something samsung should make use of atleast with the Ultra.
