I have recently noticed that my Tab S2 has been discharging ridiculousl quickly over this last week. It was absolutely fine until Sunday as I used it to watch the UFC all night on the BT TV app and since Monday the battery life is losing about 40% over night in standby mode and is dead by 6pm that night.
Yes I use the Samsung charger, not that it would make any difference.. my s7 charger died and I used an Anker charger for 18 months no problem so I really don't see how that could even vaguely be deemed to be a fix ...
Secondly yes, it won't hold a charge for half a day and my wife has an s2 as well so I tried her charger and no different and today... hers has stopped holding its charge and hers is a year younger
I have 2 Samsung Tabs
1 x Samsung s2 8 which takes a age to charge if I don' turn the power off completly and uses power at a rate of knots approx 2 mins each percent of battery.
1 x Samsung TabA 8 This shuts down at less than 75% battery and also does not not hold charge well.
These used to be so good tablets. please don't ask me to factory reset I've done all that and still no good. I am of the oppinion that Samsung may have made a bad update and i hope its not like Apple did purposely to make you buy anotjer unit, sorry for this negative comment but you dont seem to be helping anyone or even listening because with all the issues people are having Samsung dont appear to be too concerned at getting to the root cause
I just feel used and let down by Samsung I have another 12 months to pay for my Tab s2 8 and it' now virtually unusable.
Hello, I also have the Galaxy S2 that I purchased in September 2015 and it also shuts down anywhere after 49% nor does it hold a charge. I also have performed the factory reset with no improvement. Ironically, I had an earlier Galaxy tablet and after almost two years, it did the exact same thing. This appears to be a Samsung issue.
At this point, I am seriously considering going back to the iPad, especially with all of the improvements for productivity with other non-Apple Apps.
