S9 Exynos here.

Second full day (after a half day when I got it) and it's been pretty horrible. I expected it to be average or not great for the first couple days, but this is nuts.

I've got everything on - location, sync, AOD, Bixby, etc - and am losing about 5% per hour with the screen off. Ending the day on 15% with only an hour or two of SOT.

Will be keeping a spreadsheet log of it, including what services are on and how I've used it, so will report back. Hope it improves naturally with everything on though. Reception is also surprisingly average; in the bathroom at work my Pixel 1 had decent enough reception to load videos, but my S9 seems to struggle to even load images. Pixel 1 had 3G in an underground pub, but my S9 couldn't get any data at all.

Happy to provide them, I just never bother taking them haha. Why better though? I log my battery details in a spreadsheet, so wouldn't this be the same as a screenshot?

It's just better because most people do like that since you just see the screens instead of reading everything, but as you like man

battery times (at least european version) are currently worse than s8. most reviews i have read (with comparison) are confirming this.

Can confirm.

Same settings, apps and usage behaviour.

S9: Usage ~14 hours and 5 hours sot
S8: Usage ~20+ hours and 7+ hours sot

Samsung wtf?

I don't know whether I've conditioned the battery or whether it's the intelligent scan that i turned off (and restarted phone) but i am getting 5hrs sot 36hrs uptime. AOD off. Resolution is fhd+. Exynos s9.

Sure i have also 5h SOT (with 2 h playing a game currently) but turning off things shouldn't be the solution to get SOT times still worse than the s8.
The bad thing is most reviews are aware of the bad battery Times but still gave a high rating. So samsung will not fix this as fast as we want as the first reviews are rewarding them.
This should be a high priority issue.
I am sure this idiots will first concentrate their fixes to have higher benchmarks results

Do you think it's fixable by Samsung? Maybe the new Exynos is just a battery sucker.
