Just wondering if anyone elses Z Fold 4 has as bad a battery life as my one does? I've gone from 100% to around 55% battery with not even 3 hours SOT... 

Any suggestions as I'm genuinely considering just getting rid of the phone soon.

Hi, @meez. I want to help you get the stellar battery life I'd expect from the brilliant Z Fold4. So I (and the Community users) can get a better look at the issue, please could you let your phone drop to 50% from a full charge then head into Settings > Device Care > Battery > Usage since last full charge (click the graph to see more extensive data)?

From this screen, please take a screenshot and enclose it here.

That is indeed a poor battery performance. My own Fold4 allows a full day with 6 hours screen on. Unfortunately, your screenshot omits the apps or processes that are using the most battery.

Initially, I would suggest wiping your phone's cache partition, repairing apps and utilising the Battery Guardian in the Good Guardians app mentioned in the following...

Wipe Cache Partition, Repair apps & Galaxy App Booster

 

See if that solves your issue.

Send it to Samsung for a free repair, under section 75 of the consumer rights act.

Just read this, good advice, do these check first, most times bad apps.

Seems a lot better after using the Good Guardians apps, but still fairly underwhelming especially coming from a past P30 Pro owner.

This is my phone on around 45% btw.1692537638715_1692537638701_0.jpg
