Since getting the phone a couple of months back now I have really struggled to justify the cost. But I have lived in hope that the promised updates would solve some issues.
The camera was the first dissapointment, but I will say that the last couple of updates have made improvements.
Where it has gotten to the point of returning the device is the battery! I have had to go back to not using Spotify in the car, using my camera as little as possible, but still today I am beyond dissapointed. The phone has been on charge on the mains all night (10 hours), 40 mins MAX scrolling social media and a bunch of WhatsApp messages and it's down to 33% at 3pm. Just not good enough for a high end phone. Can't deal with the fear my phone will die before the end of a normal day!
And I've checked the battery statistics to make sure nothing is draining it in the background, and nope, it's just a rubbish battery!
Mine since this morning. Sorry to hear you have problems with your battery but in my opinion this phone has one of the most efficient batteries out there with possibly the best SoT with no compromises. I use mine with 120hz WQHD+, 5G, Bluetooth, NFC all on and I maintain a healthy (in my opinion) 10h+ SoT.
