Battery drain after One UI 6.1 update S23 Ultra

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 thought i was going crazy before the 6.1 update my S23 Ultra would last me a day atleast if not more. Since updating it to 6.1 I'm having to charge this phone twice daily it's so bad they need to fix this.

S23+ here, same problem. After update to 6.1, battery usage is 1.5 times as fast as before, and the phone is at least 10 degree c hotter while watching youtube.

I'm also having this issue. I have my phones battery protection set up as Maximum, where it'd only charge to 80% and stop (used to be 85% before the update). That used to last me the entire day. Now I'm less then half way through the day, and it's already at 20%. I'm not even using my ohkne any more or any less. There's definitely something wrong after the update.

Part of the reason I loved this phone was the battery comfortable lasting over two days possibly into a 3rd day. Now after half a day it nearly needs charging again since the update!

They need to fix it ASAP can't even go through the day anymore without having to carry a power bank. What a joke... Even power saving mode isn't doing any justice.

Yep I'm having the same issue, I decided to watch YouTube videos, mostly listened to them, and my phone was hot as heck. Batter was draining very quickly.
