Hi, I just got my S20+ 5G (exynos processor) 3 days ago, and I'm very disappointed. The phone get warm and drops frames during normal scrolling through the UI so easily and the battery drop percentage is huge (I installed Accubattery to get exact status) and as you can see 21% of battery is gone while the screen is off?!!

The phone settings as below :
WIFI + NFC + GPS : Off
Screen : 120 Hz and brightness is Auto
SIM: 2 first locked on LTE and the second on 3G and the coverage at my place is excellent

What do you think? Am I an isolated case or do you have a similar issues, especially the power consumption during screen of time.

I feel its very new. Give sammy sometime to mature the software for 120 hz. I feel 120 hz is the cause for the drain i think.

My main concern is the consumption when screen is off which is not related to 120 Hz

Have you restored a backup from an older phone?

Isn't wifi more efficient than LTE and 5G? Maybe keep that on and see if you notice a difference. Switch to 60 hz as well.

This seems like the normal exynos problems. In some cases (back on my s9/s10/n10+) experiences, these phones have had catastrophic battery lifetimes. Maybe it'll settle after 2-3 days, but I think it'll stay that way.

With adaptive battery, the phone must first learn your usage etc...I saw some videos where the people complain regarding the 120hz using a lot of power...25% more then with 60hz
