I absolutely LOVE my Z Fold2, but I’m really concerned about the battery life. My phone will never last a full day, no matter how much or little I use it.
I’ve checked the inbuilt Battery usage app and it gives no real indication of abnormal battery drain. I’ve also installed a couple of different 3rd party battery monitor apps (on different occasions!), and they also don’t show anything “alarming” as to what is draining the battery.
As an example, I charged my phone up to 100% today and, after taking it off charge, it had gone from 100% to 95% in 1 hour. I didn’t even touch the phone to use it! Now, 4 hours later, it is at 60% and I’ve used it for about 10 minutes.
Turning off WiFi and Bluetooth have no effect, and even though I put my phone into flight mode overnight (and it's therefore not communicating with anything?!), it still loses at least 10% overnight when it is effectively off!
What’s going on?! Am I the only one this is happening to?
It’s really causing me a lot of grief because when using the phone, I can literally watch the percentage drop!! I'm sure it must be something simple to fix or have I managed to get hold of a "rogue" unit?!
I’d appreciate any help or insight anyone can give me on this.

Hey Aparmar, thanks for your quick reply and useful tips, but unfortunately I have already done all of those! I switched to dark mode from day 1, I turned off nearby device scanning fairly recently which did make a BIG difference, and finally I've uninstalled all my unused apps. Turning off the "nearby device scanning" had the most effect, but the battery still drains ridiculously fast. I can literally watch the battery percentage count down as I use the phone!
Maybe this is the normal battery performance of the Z Fold2? But I'm hoping it's not! It really is ridiculous how quickly my battery discharges. I completely accept that the main screen is a big screen and would use a lot of battery power, but I've not even opened the phone today and the battery is draining like mad!
Thanks again for your useful tips, and I hope someone else reads the "nearby device scanning" tip, because that really is one to take notice of and turn off!
