Did you upgrade to Android 13 One UI 5?

I know that since I installed Android 13 OneUI 5, my battery has been draining faster when in standby. Prior to the update, after sleeping for 6 hours my battery drain was between 4 to 5 %. Now it drains more than 10%. I factory reset after I installed the update.

Yes I did update to one ui 5 but I've factory reset it multiple times after following countless battery saving steps and they seemed to have helped a bit but still not as much.

Now I actually have more of a problem with when the phones on its draining fast on my other phone I was using Spotify, WhatsApp, insta and a load more and it wasn't draining my battery as much as it is on this phone I can bearly get a full day with spotify playing music to my Bluetooth headphones, me texting people on WhatsApp, maybe slight gaming, and calling on WhatsApp drains it and that's another compared to my old phone plz help or at least give me your thoughts. Thank you.

Sorry for the late response. Like you I have factory reset several times. I have slimmed down the phone as much as possible of extra stuff (Samsung apps/services that I find useless through ADB) and I have seen slight improvement.

Searching online, it seems that quite a few galaxy device models (S21/S21FE) have reported similar issues. Even the Pixel line has some similar battery issues. I hope that Google and Samsung can release updates to address the problems soon.

Well, android 13 battery drain is because google implemented more "ad targeting system apps" that guess what.....those are harvesting more data from you USING YOUR BATTERY, YOUR CPU, YOUR STORAGE AND YOUR PHONE INTERNET BANDWIDTH. ....one of them is even about their new "topics" ad targeting system....

I cant remember the names but my S21 5G got a bootloop when I disabled all that crapb (google's way to force you to keep them) so I had to return to android 12 to disable the ones there and not get a bootloop. Just return to androod 12 as I did and disable the samsung update apps to avoid being forced to update to 13

Well...I can't believe I actually figured out my battery drain issue and it is stupid.

I noted that I was draining up to 3% or more an hour while sleeping. For 6 weeks I have been trying to figure this out. I suddenly realized Monday that I was seeing around 1% an hour battery drain at work during times I was not using my phone. The only thing different between work and home is that I have wifi turned off at work. Started messing around with some stuff that was wifi related and the issue turned out to be Wifi Calling. It would act crazy when I went into airplane mode then turned off airplane mode. I turned off Wifi Calling on Monday and my battery life is looking great ever since. It is still slightly more drain than android 12 but not enough to qualm over.

Don't know if it is connected to any of your issues, but worth a look. Luckily I get good enough signal at home that wifi calling is not really a concern at this time. Hopefully it will be fixed in future updates but if not I want shed a tear.

Hi I am facing the same issue after one UI 5 update, I reached out to samsung support the only response was analysing log and nothing else , My battery drains like more than 3%/hr .I am very frustrated by this for past 2 months
