I don't use bixby. But there is a number of ways to conserve battery life with any phone.
Turn off bluetooth if not used, turn off WiFi if not used, look at things like fb, Spotify, Instagram as apps like this love hogging the battery. Also look at screen brightness as it can eat battery's. I'm sure there are many other ways to conserve battery life but I've listed some of the common things that could help.

If you go to Settings- Device Care & Battery - tap on Battery then tap on the Usage Graph and it will then show your battery usage by apps - can maybe see if a specific app is hogging the battery

Hi @tracey12 

 

I have the Fold³ and love what it brings however due to it's battery capacity / size and the fact it powers basically 3 displays the battery 🔋  usage time's can vary depending on what's been carried out on the phone.

Personally I'm not really into turning off functions and features that I use or what makes the phone what it is.

On mine I get a days usage with a bit of change left in the 🔋

I use dark mode and look at what syncs and how often it syncs and what scans and how often it scans i.e in Location settings.

Low or poor network signal will play a part too.

I carried a portable lightweight powerbank with me just in case as I love using those internal screens for media consumption such as YouTube etc 👌

If I may suggest use the phone until the battery hits around 15% and then go into your battery and Device Care and go into battery and screenshot that also using the screen grab scroll feature to capture all the apps being used and include the top status bar and post that screenshot here in your thread so we can take a look for you.

I also use Samsung Internet as I found Google Chrome a resource hog.

If you perform a forum search I'm confident you'll find existing threads with battery saving tips within.

Above all enjoy what that marvelous phone brings 😎

I wish you all the best.  :smiling-face:
