I've had my galaxy for 4 months and it has been great. However recently it has been discharging very rapidly from 100% to 0% in about 5 - 7 hours much less than my old battery life of over 15 hours. The charger has also been faulty as it's USB-C it can be used both ways however if I use it one of the ways it will uncharge the battery and keep disconnecting then reconnecting. Which is really irritating it then can also be really slow
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have had the same problem recently with my a5. Happily is now resolved. The problem with mine was not Samsungs fault . The battery life was great until recently with only losing about 3 percent overnight and after an update message started draining it completely in about six hours. In the last couple of weeks I joined facebook and they sent me a code to confirm identity. Looking at the settings I see they have dropped a small app on at the same time. Have deleted it and now battery life back to normal losing 3 percent overnight so problem obviously caused by facebook tracking my phone . Will have nothing more to do with this hideous organisation. Hope this helps
Thanks for sharing this with the Community. We want to make sure that your device is working efficiently for you. Battery problems can be such a pain to work with.
Let's go over a few things just to be sure we have everything covered:
Other than those software maintenance techniques, I would suggest verifying that you don't have any stick pins within your charging port as well. You will want to also make sure there aren't any visible strains on your charging cord.
Hmm. I'd like to get a better idea of what you're dealing with here then. Can you provide us a screenshot of your full stats within Settings > Battery > Battery Usage please?
Sorry for the earlier message and the long wait time im I'm vacation at the moment. However I have managed to find battery usage here is a screenshot of the battery usage with power saving mode on.
Thanks for that screenshot. Have you taken a look at another thread and implemented some of the battery saving tips discussed there?
Thank you for the thread I have implemented some of these changes but it has not changed my battery life by much. I have attached a screenshot of a particularly bad day where my battery was fraud very quickly compared to the 14hr battery life my phone used to have and the 6hr battery life currently it's certainly getting worse.
