Lag and poor battery

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hi All,

I've had my S8+ for over a year now and honestly I don't do too much on it...

I have Samsung Music with my bluetooth earphones for music to and from work (1-1.5h each way). I go on Chrome (with around 20 tabs open), Instagram and chat via WhatsApp. I watch videos that are on my Toshiba 128GB MicroSD card using VLC. The only game I play is Pokemon Go. I always close apps that I am not using except Chrome really.

My main issue is the poor battery - when checking battery usage the sum of battery usage percentage never equals the actual drained amount so I can't even tell what is draining the battery.

With regards to lag it seems if I have Chrome, Instagram and Pokemon Go open (i.e. alternating between them), I end up lagging and when I switch back to the other app it sometimes ends up having to restart.

I know the way to "fix" this would just be to do a Factory Reset but is there a way to identify what exactly is draining my battery (as mentioned the battery usage screen seems to be inaccurate). Also can I for example see something like a 'Windows Task Manager RAM usage'-esque view to try and see what's hogging RAM up and causing my phone to lag.

I don't want to just factory reset my phone as it is just avoiding the problem - I want to instead tackle the issues head on.

@RajMalik Based on what you stated, you've probably already covered most suggestions in this article about battery drain, but would you mind glancing over it and just double checking? http://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00078987/

 

As for the lagging / slow down on the phone, here's another article with some information on how to check different things that could be the cause. http://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00062587/
