Might do this, if you haven't already


Press and hold Side key until you see Power Off - select it to power off the phone.

Now, off to the Maintenance (Recovery) screen:

Press and HOLD the Volume Up key, and while holding, press and HOLD the Side key.

When the Samsung splash screen appears, release both keys. Within a few seconds, you'll see the Maintenance screen, with a number of menu options.

Use the Volume Down key to highlight Wipe Cache Partition. Press Side key, select "Yes".

Now, Use Volume key to highlight "Repair Apps" (should be last menu option). Use Side key to select it.

The phone will automagically restart. Let the phone settle down for a couple of minutes.

... check again...

Works today too.

Those of us on the beta program do that procedure as a matter of habit, to help alleviate various issues, including reduced battery life.

Reads like rogue background processes. I've been off the charger for 3 hours, half of that has been scrolling through news. Currently sitting at 88%

Anyone know what permission usage is and why it's using so much battery? That's 2 days in a row now. Screenshot_20211104-154045_Device care.jpg

I've noticed with my device the battery drain gradually goes away over time. Give it a couple days to settle in.
