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 have the same problem. Before lastest update, my battery can stay almost a day. I listen to music, watching YouTube,  Netflix without using any power bank or I don't need to charge the phone during the day.  Now, after the update.....just a few hours, the battery % drop to lower than 25 and I have to find the charger. This is really terrible.  PLEASE FIX IT ASAP

Got the same problem on my Fold 5. The device is getting extremely hot as well. I use to listen to YouTube while sleeping, and i woke up with my phone completely drained today. I had 98% when i fall asleep and this never used to happen om the old UI.

Me too. This is very annoying, because i heavily rely on my phone throughout the night. Fingers crossed for a fast fix. I guess i will never update my phone again right after update release.

I reported the same to Samsung and they kept saying I need to change settings when I told them I already have all the power saving settings, I'm so annoyed I accepted the update.. the battery life has gone from amazing to absolute trash

Same problem here for s23 plus. Battery drains in 4-6 hours and charging take 3 times more.
