Gear S3 Frontier Tizen 3.0 Battery Drain

[ Edited ]

Got latest update to Tizen 3.0 Suddenly battery drains a lot faster compared to previous firmware based on Tizen 2.4.2.4.  Made sure all settings are identical and Tizen 3.0 is supposed to be a lot more battery efficient.  Anyone experiencing similar problems?

I had same issues after update, but simple reboot (not factory reset but just reboot) helped me.

As I said, reboot did noting to improve the battery drain (in my case)

Same issue. It's brutal.

Me too.  My watch has gone from using 2% per hour to 5% per hour with the same AOD watch face.

 

Useless.  Factory reset did nothing to help.

Same here. Previously would drain about 20% a day (AOD disabled), now draining about 50% a day. Worse battery life than my phone now! Can't even last 2 full days.

It blows my mind that Samsung can release 3.0 with all the fanfare about extending battery life when in reality it makes it so much worse!  Incomprehensible.

Could have know this would happen, and as from now i will never update samsung products when a newer version comes out.

 

I have seen this with the S6 S7 and Gear S3 now.. everytime samsung releases a newer version of a product an update will show up wich makes the battery drain twice or 3 times as fast.

Its nothing more then a trick to let people buy new products because old ones become useless.

Its becomming really obvious with samsung products. 

My advice: dont update your samsung devices when newer versions of a product come on the market!
