What should be a standard battery life on S20

Hey there,

 

I just got a brand new Samsung Galaxy S20 a week ago. Coming from iPhone one of my expectations was a better battery life which is not proving to be true so far.

Battery drain has so far been herendous despite using the phone moderately and having optimized for battery life:

  • Dark mode
  • 60hz screen
  • no AOD
  • Routines to turn off wifi, location, sync,... when not in use or if battery is low 

 

So far I'm getting 3 to 4hrs screen on time with moderate usage (daily i must have 2hr whatsapp, 1hr listening to spotify in background, 1hr web browsing and various, 1hr of calls)

Which is worst than my 2.5 years old iPhone X and I'm getting really close to returning the S20

 

What should be the standard battery life on this smartphone for my usage?

Is there something i'm missing or i should check?

 

Many thanks for the support

I'm getting 6+ sot with the s20FE, so yea something is wrong (at 120hz). Download gsam, and give it permissions with adb. Also, download galaxy labs and run the booster. The battery will get better over the first week, but this should help diagnose a bad app. I had YouTube draining my phone a ton in the background, a reinstall fixed it.

I wiped (factory reset) my phone last night - thanks Samsung support for the great idea....

Restoring with Samsung Cloud was a blood bath......

 

Unplugged my phone in the morning 3 hrs ago, it is already down to 60% with normal usage when my iphone would have been >90%

I've installed accubattery and gsma thing - but i'm already tired of tweaking this phone 

 

 

Seriously i'm ashamed for samsung that they release such poor products that customers need to tweak to make usable... i can't even understand how these phone could pass basic UATs  

Not to mention the completely ignorant customer service on phone or in store (at least where i am now)

Re: What should be a standard battery life on S20

hm, I don't see any big issues here. try downloading the labs and running the booster, and turn on adaptive battery in device care. Also, did you give gsam permission using a computer and adb? otherwise it might not be seeing everything
