    Post Poor signal strength

    Yours' seems perfectly normal! The phone is almost lasted 2 days and good SOT. However I think you were on Wifi as well. The signal strength is also good. If I go by these stats, it's only the bars that may be showing incorrectly. Btw, are you rooted? You are using Franco kernel manager to...

    Post Poor signal strength

    I was browsing the XP 5 M2 forums here with the intend to import this phone to India as it seemed an excellent buy. Now after seeing the poor signal issue, I have my concerns. However, you can try doing the following and report back 1. Check "mobile network standby" usage under the battery...

    Post Forgotten S10+ PIN

    If 'smart lock' was enabled, you could go to her favorite places (possibly their home) and the device would automatically unlock itself. The last option is to go to a Samsung service center with all documentation.

    Thread Weird issue: Quick Settings not accessible when apps are open

    I have a strange issue. My quick settings are not accessible when using any apps. I can Swipe down from the home screen and access them easily, but when I open an app and try to swipe down it does not work. Attached is a short video (zipped mp4). I had the phone come from repairs due to...

    Post [INDIA] S10 All Models and Variants - Discussion Thread

    Anyone here can verify how is the battery life now on S10 plus Exynos after OneUI 2.1 update? I had sold the handset due to bad standby but planning to buy it again on olx as am tired of stock Android which lacks features.

    Post I don't understand the battery care schedule.

    The charging is supposed to be fast until 80% or so and then trickle charge till 100%. However there is a bug in this module, it doesn't charge according to the set schedule. I had enabled it from midnight to 7 am but found the phone to be completely charged at 5.30am.

    Post Games problems on rog phone 2

    Couldn't agree more. The battery life has also been downhill. We could have waited a couple of weeks more for an optimized update.

    Post Screen on time

    There is no known way except using 3rd part battery tools like BBS or GSAM. I have been using GSAM and its pretty accurate. There are some additional battery packages available on Samsung Labs (https://www.sammobile.com/news/samsung-galaxy-labs-suite-of-apps-let-you-optimize-your-phone/) to view...

    Post Screen on time

    I'd say 2%/hr drain is normal when you use the phone in the day. Firstly, discard Accubattery, it may not show correct discharge rates and screen times. Use BBS or GSAM as pointed out by Limeybastard. You'll need to grant permissions using Adb for both these apps...

    Post Screen on time

    Well if you're getting less SOT compared to someone who uses similarly, then it could be a signal issue or a bad Exynos chip. It seems like you got a bad handset. I''d still say try running video for an hour and see how much battery it consumes for that time. Do you get the advertised video run...

    I'd say screw the SOT metrics. I'm not sure why people are still cribbing about SOT. Each one of us has different usage pattern. When I only browse and use social media my Exynos S10+ hits about 5 hrs, but when I watch videos it goes up to 7 hrs mark. DO NOT look at SOT as a metric. I have seen...

    Thread Strange-Higher Battery Drain on Medium Power Saving Mode/Adaptive Power Saving Mode

    The 'adaptive power saving' mode is resulting in higher battery drain overnight (about 8-10%) compared to optimized mode (2-3%). I have tested this for a few nights and the results are the same. Disabling the adaptive power saving helps but this is not the solution as it defeats the very purpose...

    Are you on Dual-sim? Check your network coverage strength. A weak signal on LTE/4G will cause battery drain.

    Post Screen on time

    GSMArena has given an endurance rating of only 84 hrs (90hz) & 89 hrs (60hz) which are not that great considering OP7 which had 102 hrs. I cant understand even at 60hz why so much difference compared to its predecessor?

    Post Screen on time

    No need to limit CPU etc. SOT depends on a lot of factors as each one of us use the phone differently. Try watching videos for a couple of hours and report back. Your SOT will surely go up & maybe cross 7 + hrs overall.

    Post Galaxy S10+ Battery Optimisation guide

    Thanks! I might DM you in August. Waiting for the Note 10 release! If the Note turns out to be a major upgrade in terms of features and the processor (exynos 9825), I might buy that instead of S10+.

    Post [India] S9+ User Thread

    How's the battery life after June update? My first two charges were bad. Only 2.5 hrs SOT in 18-20 hrs with browsing social media and chats.
  21. linom

    Post Screen on time

    Don't think there's any magic! If we watch videos, SOT shoots up by an hour or two. General browsing and social media will give only about 5 hrs, assuming normal LTE/Wifi signal levels. Try watching YouTube or Netflix for a couple of hours and report back. You'll end up with 7+ hrs.

    Was browsing this forum and and you're the first person to report this! Haven't come across anyone earlier. This happens with my S9+ . Powersave mode uses the same or more battery than optimized mode. Sammy has screwed up something for sure.

    You should have a 'Vibrate' option in your message app settings. (See attached). Not sure if its carrier dependent. ASFIK the lock screen settings takes precedence over "preview messages" settings. So even if I turn off preview messages in the 'in-app notifications' but keep 'show content' or...

    Post Stock messaging app wake screen?

    Just turn off the stock messaging notifications to 'Sound Only' for the specific sim and additionally go to Settings - Notifications-"In-app notifications" and turn off 'preview messages'. This should stop from waking the screen.

    This is offtopic and needs to be in the watch forum. To close this, I've been using the s3 frontier since almost 2 years. Battery lasts for 2-3 days and regular updates from Samsung. No need to buy the latest from Sammy. I'd suggest go for it.

    I would request 3C a feature to track & measure cellular & wifi signal levels at all times and compare it with battery drain/standby. This would a highly useful and nifty feature to have especially when it comes to unexplained battery drain issues.
