Hi I have noticed that since updating to android 13, that when I check my battery usage, System UI seems to always be at the top of the list of apps draining my battery. Anyone else have this issue?

Hi @Dannyboii 

Battery stats appear to be on par with Android¹² I was on until Android¹³.

Can you try > 

Clear Cache Files from the phone's System Partition Section  > https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/how-do-i-clear-the-cache-on-my-device/ You may need to insert your earphones or hook upto a powered On Laptop to access the Clear Partition Section. This may help with lag or stutters as this clears the phone of old/unused or broken cache files.There is also a Repair Apps option in the Menu System too.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

I have also noticed excessive battery drain.  The only solution that worked for me was change refresh rate back down to 60. Motion Smoothing > Standard. 

I read that it may stuck at 120 all the time thus the huge drain.
