It's amazing how much we actually use our phones in a given day, especially when we watch "videos"! Rate this thread to express how many hours of screen-on time you can get on the Samsung Galaxy S9 before depleting the battery.

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

I usually get 4 hours top, how about others?

I use the phone moderately, AOD, 4G, GPS high accuracy enabled. Auto-brightness, QHD resolution, no battery saver, no high-performance mode.

I voted 3*

Used to get about 5 1/2 on the s8+. So far I'm at 35% on the so and over 3hrs of sot. Expecting similar with the s9 due to smaller bat.

I usually average about 3.5-4 hours SOT on every phone I own. So far over the last 3 days my Galaxy s9 hasn't been any different. I really don't understand how you people are getting between 5-6

They probably have long screen timeout and just let it timeout...

Though I got 5hrs yesterday watching a lot of video both on the SDcard and streamed over my WiFi

The new system update seemed to have helped. Also I turned off location for a lot of apps that I won't use regularly since it might start using it in the background. Auto brightness is off and my brightness is always about half way or just under. Most other things are on like AOD. Not sure what else could have caused it.

It's always a good idea to check the battery graph page and see what apps are at the top of the list to figure out why your battery isn't doing well. Maybe it depends what you do on the phone too. For me it's mostly web browsing and watching videos.
