Yes iv heard this. Would this be the cause of the above battery drain. Iv seen some people get 7 hours of SOT?

7 hours is kind of the minimum SoT I'd get from my phones usage, typical is more like 10h. Your Chrome does appear to be consuming a lot of power. Mine only recently started pulling a lot of power too and I'm not exactly sure why.

I get around 8-10 hours sot,but it all depends what you are doing on your phone really.
There are some things you can change to improve battery:

1)dark mode
2) partition cache wipe after each update.
3)change from 5g to 4g network
4)turn off nearby scanning
5)turn off printer scanning
6)put apps you don't use alot in deep sleep

There are other things but I can't remember them 😅.
But like I said I get 8-10 hours sot and that's with wqhd and 120hz on.

I've done all that apart from 2 and 3. Although I'm at home most of the time so even with 5g on it shouldn't drain the battery as I'm on WiFi. Mainly YouTube, apple music and Web browsing. I have switched to Samsung Internet to see if that makes a difference

It looks like you have been listening to alot of music in the back ground, my phone which is s20 4000mah can achieve up to 7 hours sot but on a bad day with listening to music location tracking using a bit of maps it may only do 2 hours sot so it depends what you are doing everyday but I know music slowly but surely sips away at it. I use YT music and it's a battery hog

Number 2 on your list is very important if not essential.

The main reason is that old cache files can become corrupt and cause app or system problems. It can improve storage space, too.
