S23 Ultra bad battery

(Topic created on: 22-03-2024 04:14 PM)
I m having worst battery life in s23 ultra ever. I've been seeing people sharing their battery usage which is mostly 7hrs SOT and 10hrs of Screen off time! But mine is worse in the start it was 4hrs SOT with 10hrs screen off time max! But now it's reduced to 2hrs SOT! I m really worried what should I do? U can check in the picture! Also now a days I don't use my Samsung anymore I have an iPhone SE 2020 which is way better in battery than this one! That phone give me 2 days of battery easily with normal usage! I dont play games or heavy usage I just use this phone for light work! Still it's a really bad experience! 


Could you screenshot more of the individual app usage? 10% from Facebook and WhatsApp alone seems excessive to me

Hello @talha7 

I can understand why you would be questioning your stats when your looking at other people's stats.

First thing to mention is that battery life and stats is a subjective topic as we all set up our phone's differently and use different apps with different preferences in their settings and use them differently. 

Network signal can cause battery drain if the phone has to work harder to maintain signal connection. 

Please go into your Battery and Device Care Section and use the optimisation tool if you haven't already. 

I also see you have two sim cards inserted making use of the Dual Sim option which can in itself use more battery as the phone is then maintaining two network connections.

I also see that one of the signal indicators is low which means the phone will be working harder to maintain a connection.

As mentioned by @ukjamie please use your phone from 100% { I assume you charge to 100% and not 85% } to around 15% and then go back into the battery section again ,and screenshot and this time use the screen grab option to scroll capture all your apps and post the results. 

If you do not use 5G then go into Settings > Connections > Tap on Mobile Connections and choose the option without 5G.

This is because your phone will be constantly searching for a 5G connection which is battery consuming. 

Using 5G uses more battery.

I personally prefer not to turn off my phone's features such as display quality and screen refresh rate settings however I do set my own screen brightness and choose to opt to 2 minutes for screen timeout.

I do put a couple of apps to sleep and deep sleep as they are known as ' vampire apps  ' such as social media apps.

I do not use Chrome for Internet as this has been known to use more battery so I opt to use the Samsung Internet App for browsing.

Some people download battery apps that monitor the battery. By their very nature these are battery consuming too.

Location apps that work in the background can use alot of resources too.

If you perform a forum search you'll find lot's of posts with some really good battery saving tips. 👍 

One such troubleshooting step is > Clear Cache Files from the phone's System Partition Section  > You may need to insert your earphones or hook upto a powered On Laptop to access the Clear Partition Section. This may help with lag or stutters as this clears the phone of old/unused or broken cache files.There is also a Repair Apps option in the Menu System too. 

If I can be of any further help then please don't hesitate. Take care.  😎

I had this exact problem before but I didn't do anything eventually it fixed itself after a routine update.

You are using two Sims.

These could be what's draining your battery, especially if you have poor signal.
Also something is using your location. Check your location permissions and background data permissions.

Happy Days.

When I first got this phone ...about 4 months ago I think now, the battery was excellent.  However these days Ill be lucky for it to last more than 8 hours with light use.  I am familiar with the fact brightness decreases battery time etc but I am not using this phone any differently than I once did.  I think I remember thinking the battery life was noticeably worse after one of the recent last updates.  Pretty disappointing.  Im not really interesting in checking this or that because as Ive said, Ive not changed the phone in any meaningful way to have caused additional power consumption.   The whole reason I am here right now is to check and see if this is a larger known issue.
