A higher rating indicates that when the phone is not in use, the battery drains minimally.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

It is because of the android apps that is running in background. It keeps running if you are connected to the internet. If you checked which cause battery drains you will come to know that majority of apps are consuming too much power. It is better to install those apps which requires less space and don't updates frequently. Gaming Apps, Time management Apps, Fitness Apps, News Apps are updated almost everyday. So it is good to uninstall it if you are not using it.

I have seen many people who install so many apps but never used any which is not only uses the spaces but also consume the battery power.

after i disabled all the bixby services, using bxactions doesn't do anything. And i cannot use control mode on bxactions too because i don't have windows machine unfortunately.

i just tried, it's kinda hit and miss action. Perhaps i need to use control mode to get it fully working.

same issue. i got both the s8 and s8+, both lost 15% after 7-8 hours sleep...
after some normal usage the battery dies arround 5pm everyday... this is really annoying.
the battery is the biggest but the only disappointment on my s8 and s8+, hopefully this can be fixedby system patch on some day.
