Since an update a few days ago my battery drainage is terrible. I close all background apps down but within a hour 85 apps open up and kill the battery. Whenever i kill the apps its always 85 apps closed in the background. Help !!

Does anybody from Samsung respond to these posts, seems there is a problem and people just have to live with it ?

Would recommend a 'wipe cache' and make sure all apps are updated both from Samsung and Google store.

Under App permissions check which apps have access to location and only keep the ones you really need as always, rest put as when app is opened.

Don't kill all apps as when they restart they will try to refresh everything and drain more battery.

You need to check what apps are draining battery in background and act accordingly.

If it's a wide spread issue caused my an update, Samsung will probably fix it with another one.

Me too. After latest update the battery of my S9 is intermittently draining, phone getting hot. Google Play Services is the app which is showing as using most battery life.
