    Lost 4% in 15 hours standby. No power saving mode used. I never use that B$. Still Android system is high but I doubt anything can be done about it currently.

    Post The battery on the Note 20 Ultra 5G does not appear to have 4500mAh

    I set the design capacity in Accubattery to 4500mAh myself. I'm referring to the estimate capacity which mine shows a lowish figure. My phone is 2 weeks old. I'm aware accubatttery is just a guide though. I also have only charged it to 100% once as you can see in the chart.

    Indeed. It's Samsung inherent battery leeching love. It's been like this for years, it's part of their trait. Like mentioned before, as an example , a 5000mAh Samsung Galaxy is the equivalent of a 4ooomAh OnePlus or Google device.

    Best phones after tweaking for standby battery drains for me were Huawei and OnePlus. Ive owned Samsung's since the Note 3, if you can get standby drain 0.5% or below you are doing well.

    Does it behave this way when in safe mode ? How about in 3G mode? If it's hardware then Samsung doesn't recognize devices that are from other regions in relation to warranty work. You'll have to test the after sales support of T Dimensions now. Failing that sell it as is on eBay for parts or try...
