Hi guys,

So I've seen a few posts on here with people suffering from poor battery,this has been down to updating to one ui 6.1.
Personally I've not had an issues with battery on either my s23 ultra or s23 base model,I'd say it's been just as good if not better since updating.
My question is why do some have issues with battery yet others don't?.this is a genuine question.
I understand people use their phones differently and have different apps etc.
But it still seems strange that we all have the same phone,yet the battery is vastly different for users.
Just interested to here you lovely peoples thoughts on this ☺️.

Hey there

It is a good question and one we have covered off before.

In many cases (but not all before I get shot down in flames) it will be to do with an app or apps on the device draining battery. Not the update itself.

There are several million apps out there, samsung cannot be expected to test against them all. And then you'll have one pair of apps conflicting when others don't.

And if they did test against every app? Imagine the uproar at monthly updates taking months to test before releasing.

Then there is the issue of 32bit versus 64bit apps and software. So in many cases it isn't the device or update, it is simply that the app runs 32 bit but the device needs it in 64 bit.

But people's first view is that it is a Samsung phone so if there is an issue, it must be down to Samsung right?

When their update over heats the phone on z fold series causing the concats to break between then hinge due to excessive heat damaging hardware and components for an expensive fix.

Then yes it is samsungs fault for pushing Incompetent updates just to keep up with monthly updates schedule.

But what caused the overheat?

If it is due to apps conflicting and causing excess battery use then it may not be the update but the apps.

That's my point.

I also said cleanly that not all users issues will be due to apps.....

I agree with @Piper123
Also depends on network signal quality
Stuff like Bluetooth connections etc
Some can be helped with Wiping the Partition Cashe on the phone. To get rid of redundant sometimes corrupt data
I find regularly shutting down and restarting my phone helps with software optimisation. This is very beneficial to the phone.
There are apps like Facebook, TikTok etc that are nicknamed vampire apps. Due to the draw on battery power these apps use. Even when not using them.
I deleted Facebook and use the Web version if I need to. I noticed a difference doing that.
But there will be anomalies, that need further investigation
Genuinely some batteries can go wrong. But these days that's not as common

Yes I did notice quicker battery drain lucky to get a day's juice out of my 24 ultra after ui 6.1

For a lot of users there are definitely some issues with the software itself, mine included.
I'm using the same settings i ve been using in the past, and the battery discharges about 30-40% faster.

My point is my phone was fine before these annoying updates not tailored to individual models

The reality, in pure logic terms, is that whilst an update may be the trigger, it cannot be the cause.

Why?

Because if the update was the cause, all users of that device would have an issue. Not all users are affected, whilst it may be hundreds or maybe even thousands, there are millions of devices out there.

Therefore the issue must be a conflict between One Ui and an app or apps causing the issues.

Samsung cannot be expected to test OS or Security Patches against the millions of apps out there. And think how long it would take? Imagine the uproar, June update not released into say December due to testing. We would never hear the end of it.
