I am using Samsung Galaxy S21FE for about a week now. Honestly, I have not seen any new device that performs so poor when it comes to battery life.
Yesterday, when I left for work the phone was 100% charged and I hardly used this phone in the office (mostly, I used social media apps during the commute). At 7:15 PM when I left the office, only 13% of the battery power was left. I am hardly getting SOT of 3 hours compared to 5-6 hours that I read in the reviews. The stand by battery drain is also too much. I am loosing 3-4% of the battery every hour.
I read in some posts that mentioned the battery improves after a couple of week's usage. Does it really improve the performance?? And if it really improves, does it give good enough battery backup which lasts until the end of the day?
What's the point of having a brand new phone when you can rely on it to last until you get back home.
I tried all these options. I see no Particular app that consumes more than 2-3 percent of battery. I did factory reset and cleared cache partition as well. It did not help. Same story. Standby battery drain is still the same.
Yes, I tried with 4G as well.. still the same issue.. looks like time has come to return this smartphone.. whats the point of switching to 4G when you paid for 5G?
