Quick update: Samsung told me to factory reset, so I did. It made no difference over the next couple of days afterwards so I rang them back up and they offered a replacement phone. I said no and returned it for a full refund. Got myself an iPhone X instead. It really is such a shame! In hindsight it looks like the issue must be with the operating system - Oreo. Various people have said that their battery life is much better since the recent update released, mine was a pre release model s9 (not the plus) and I just wasn’t patient enough for the patch. The s9 really is a georgeous phone! I’ve never experienced a screen like it!

Identicle to me - horrendous battery life... Not sure what is going on, was told that the battery life on the s8 was good and the s9 would be at least equal to it. I have just moved from my iphone 6s apple device and my s9 battery life is much worse!! Took it off the charge at 6 am this morning and after checking a few messages at work (facebook, whatsapp, textra, bbc sport & news) and 1h 57 screen usage I am down to 38% at 3:40pm. No videos or anything, nothing intensive at all. Rang up samsung for support and they have told me to factory reset... Will see if this helps! If this doesn't help I am going to have to return it... such a shame because its such a georgous device and screen. WQHD+ setting is only one I have changed, everything else is default, using auto brightness. mines the s9 (not the + model)
