Recently, I've noticed a sudden battery drain during on-screen time. In just one hour and a few minutes, my phone went from 100% to 79%. I checked my battery health, and it says it's still good. I haven't been on heavy apps either, at least not for a long period of time.

What are the consequences of enabling? Besides very likely improving battery life. Will it affect my performance phone's too? As an, will it run faster, will it run slower?

Dude, it didn't just improve my battery life, but my S21 doesn't overheat as often as it used to. Once more, thanks.

Also, be sure to restart your phone at least once a week. You can set up your phone to do this automatically for you in Settings. Just search 'restart' in Settings to get started.

I normally go into safe mode once a month and clear "Cache Partition" along with "Repair apps".

I don't know how to do those. Restarting my phone once a week seems to do the trick and I don't have to remember to do it. I've got my phone set to reboot (restart) every Sunday night while I sleep. Restarting the phone clears the cache, of course.

I also limit the battery to charge only to 85٪ to improve the battery longevity.
