I'm experiencing a huge change in battery behaviour in my S23 Ultra after the One UI 6.1 update!

It's terrible! The battery life was excellent before the update, now - the phone barely survives a day, I have to charge it up during a day, it never happened before.

This has to be related to the update. I hope Samsung will fix this ASAP as this really cripples the phone!

If the fix won't happen, and some rumors turn out to be true (Samsung trying to push users to get a new gen phone) it'll be my last Samsung phone! I've paid so much money for the highest model only to have my battery life cut almost in half by a software update one year after! Insane.

I did a full factory reset out of frustration and lost most of my pictures because my cloud and backup Cldnt take all I had, which was okay by me until I realize it never solved the problem atall. To top it up the New April Update i got 2 days back didn't resolve the matter either. I'm on my  second  full charge today and I'm already at 21% by 9pm. This is ridiculous. Before now,my phone will go almost 2 days with at least 8hrs screen on time with same exact usage.

I feel your pain, man. The last update was for security only. 

But regardless,  this 6.1 update has been absolutely criminal.  Hopefully they are working on a roll-out, they have to be.

I have read many times this kind of battery drain problems after a update. Untill now I didn't believe them. But now I have a battery problem right after updating. Today at 8.15 mu phone was fully charged and at 9.30 it was 64%. I really hope Samsung can fix this. Except of the safety update I don't need the extra funcions of 6.1. I would appreciate a reaction from Samsung.

As well as crazy battery drain, it now takes me 2+ hours to charge.
The fix needs to be quick, because my phone is not really usable for me right now.
