NOTE 20 ULTRA BATTERY LIFE IS HORRIBLE

JUMP TO SOLUTION
C'mon Samsung.... For an EXPENSIVE phone with a seemingly good battery, why are most of us only getting 4-5 hours of battery life under normal conditions??? This phone is basically $1400 (with tax)! That's more than a lot of your big screen TVs. That's 4 months of car payments! That's a lot of freaking money. And we can't get more than 5 hours of battery life? I may just return it and keep my Note 9.

Hello, I'm sorry to hear about the trouble, guys but I think I can help.  There may be some applications that you have running in the background that could be causing the battery to drain a little more than it should. 

 

I would recommend turning on the Adaptive battery option. The Adaptive battery option lets you limit the battery usage for apps that you don't use very often. By turning this feature on you'll also trigger the Adaptive Learning  feature on your phone. This feature, puts you in control of what works in the background while you use or don't use your device. Adaptive learning also learns your usage patterns and this helps to conserve the battery life of your phone.

 

You can find more on this by checking out this feature in your settings. Just go to Settings>Device Care>Battery > App Power Management > Adaptive Battery

 

Here's another helpful article that can help increase the battery life on any phone or tablet! :

My battery life is also horrible! I traded in my Note 10+ for the Note 20 Ultra, worst mistake I've ever made on a phone purchase!

I have a solution. How about stop installing pre-boated apps on Samsung phones?!

@MrJayP 

 

4-5 hours total run time or screen on time? I ran my phone for over 28 hours since yesterday, including over 5.5 hours of screen on time, and a stand by overnight test where it only dropped 5% in 9 hours and 16 minutes.

20200918_132320.gifthis is how bad mine was... You know what solved it for me, samsung band selection app. It was searching for 5g all night, I don't have 5g in my area. T-mobile let's you pick, att doesn't have that option.
