I do not recommend debloating, at least initially. Why not just tweak normal android settings and see how much battery life you can get? Many people have gone a little too far with debloating and end up getting rid of features they need. Sure, you can recover from it but you can spend a lot of time trying to figure it out.

I can get 8-10hrs of SOT without debloating or rooting and are very happy with the S22u.
Ive debloat only the things i dont need. Dont like full app drawer and I only use 5 Apps from this... Clean builds are better 👌🏽

Most apps that get debloated are just sitting there with no background execution time until you specifically start them. I can understand debloating to free up memory but does it really wipe those apps out of memory or just disable them?

They wipe the app out of memory its better than just disabling. No most Apps force Start and run in background...

I have N10+ but literally very disappointed by SoT of it from the start. Even replaced the battery also recently but still giving me not more than 3 hours of SoT.
That's an average of over 1200 mAh per hour!
It's not optimized and/or something big, huge is eating at it. It should easily get 8 hours SOT. At night with cell/internet on with AOD always on 1%@hr, tap on AOD >.5%@hr.

Those of you who exceed 8H of screen, how do you do it? How do you have the mobile configured? I have the screen in HD + and if I reach 5 hours of screen it is already a miracle

TBH, I think they are trolling. Opening apps and letting the phone sit on each app.
No, sorry but you got a hog. With a 5002 mAh battery 14+ hours SOT should be doable.
Browsing Brave like I'm doing now, the N10+ uses 6-8%@hr with newer battery.

What do you think your SOT will be like after the battery losses 10% or more of its capacity? Those fast discharge rates and higher battery temperatures it will accelerate the Li's decline.

The main thing for me was debloating. This easily gained me 2 hours of battery life. I use internet browser alot instead of native apps when possible.

Yes, keep the social media junkware off the phone, logon through the browser only.
It's not one thing I did but many to optimize my N10+ for the way I use it. Both in settings, the 3rd party apps I load and what apps I disabled.
I still fine tune the load and keep an eye on it's power consumption although it's more to monitor the battery condition now.

You can get an extra hour or more of battery life just by uninstalling the Facebook App. I kept Messenger installed so I can still get my messages real time but access Facebook thru the web browser.

Thats interesting as debloating for me did absolutely nothing for my battery life, i deleted over 150 crapware and was no different
Probably too much removed*. It may cause excessive battery usage if you remove a parent apk that a dependency constantly tries to poll or vice versa. Many of the small Samsung system apks just sit there unless needed. Some are needed for functionality and usability.

Target the apks that are battery hogs or eyesores like Digital Wellbeing. Know what you're disabling and preferably know all dependencies it may have. Find them by battery usage or bandwidth usage. All cloud apps are prime suspects. Google play Services which Gmail, Backup Transport and Playstore are dependencies are major culprits. Enable it as needed. I enable Google play Services to manually sync Gmail, then disable it. Playstore (disabled after paid for apps are activated)** and Backup Transport are always disabled.



*On my N10+'s, one running on 9, the other 10 both have about 80 packages disabled. This is in spite of 10 having over 100 new small Samsung system apks which I ignore. Some may be disable eventually but most are needed and provide functionality/usability or are used to preserve the UI's appearance. These use very little resources.

**you need to firewall block those apps then so they don't revoke paid for status, example Accubattery. Anymore I've gotten away from all paid for apps in Playstore because this and the constant Playstore power drain and meddling.

    I uninstalled Facebook 3 years ago. My battery life improved dramatically.

    Can you provide the differences between using Alliance Shield X and ADB uninstall? Is one easier than the other and is disabling using Alliance the same as removing it in ADB when it comes to battery life?
    Alliance Shield X allows you to disable apps, but they still remain on phone and take up space.

    ADB uninstall allows you to completely remove the apps off the phone, which in turn saves space.

    That's my basic understanding of it. However, Alliance Shield X has other features too. Forexample, i use one to prevent apps access to the internet via wifi or mobile data, or both.

    I think removing it would help prevent it from loading, hence save some battery, i suppose. Maybe free up ram too.

    Someone else would probably be better at explaining it, than me.

    ADB install is easy to do, once you've set it up. I'm sure there's many guides on XDA somewhere.

    The other thing about disabling it, than removing it straight away, is that you can see if that disabled app causes any adverse reactions. You can simply re-enable it again, if that is the case. However when you remove completely, it'll be extra work, if possible to get it up and running again.

    Hope any of that made sense lol.
