Hi, I've just bought a refurbished S21 fe phone and am surprised to see that it uses 1% of battery every 4 - 5 minutes with the screen on. This equates to a full battery only lasting about 8 1/2 hours of screen on time.

I wanted to ask if this is fairly typical for this model, or could I have a poor battery. Accubattery app says that battery health is 95% which sounds good. It's a sd888 version, not using 5g.

I don't see anything that says it is still learning, but it could be. I think I've used it for a full week now

Yeah I'll probably end up doing that thanks.

I'm just trying to research what normal range is to ensure that I don't have a bigger problem first. I've seen everything from 5 hours to 10+

I had a brief stint with an S21 FE and ended up selling it as the battery life was horrible, your predictions are about right for battery expectations

This thing is seriously power hungry. Shame because it's a great phone apart from the awful battery.
