Hey all, since the April 2021 security update my battery has been draining alot faster than usual. The handset also feels hotter its also happening to my wife's handset and my daughters.
Hi @Vavalgia , I just want to capture some more details on this. Are all three devices the same S9+ model and have they all had the April Security update? a
Can you also go in to Settings > Device care > Battery > Since last charge. Can you tell me the top 5-10 apps that are using the battery? It might be easier to attach a screenshot here.
2 are s9+ one is an s9 also have an s10 with the same issues. All occurred after the April security update, also by the looks of things loads of others in the Samsung community are having the same issue. Top 5 apps are Facebook, Google play services, type app, lay store and YouTube.
I have the same issue I have an S9+ and Its as if my battery drains while the phone is not even being used during the day.
My battery lasts me about a day if I use it sparingly. For one of the best phones out there this is really a let down. I have other Samsung models and never had an issue with their battery life. I have optimized, added apps to be put to sleep and deep sleep, turned off my Location service, Bluetooth etc.
Some of these apps proved very usefull in case of emergencies, and now.. well makes me feel what is the use of having all these functions if you can not use it when you really need to.
