Yesterday after a short walk, on my note 20U with the august update there were fewer wakelocks than before from cameraservice_worker, but the battery was still draining and I noticed the BSS_Indisplaysensorhelper: P wakelocks went up

Mate, just FYI, BSS_Indisplaysensor helper is the fingerprint icon on the AOD display. If you disable the icon under fingerprint settings (set to never show) the wakelock dissappears.

Another thing I have noticed, you have high bat usage from IMS Service wakelock. For me, my carrier automatically enrolled me in something called 'Rich Communications Suite'. (RCS)
This is a setting under connections > more connection settings. What this does essentially, is allow large files and MMS messages to be sent within my carrier for free. BS stuff.

Nevertheless, disable rich communications and you will have way less wakelocks from IMS service. At least this was my experience.

Now, only the damn cameraservice_worker wakelock remains for to be fixed (Still no update yet)

Cheers mate and spread the love

Wow, I think you just saved my ass. Disabled those little buggers just now and I will probably be fine. Can't thank you enough!!
And for the cameraservice_worker wakelock, as Dr. Ketan said, there could be a chance for it to be fixed with the android 12 and oneUI 4 updates, fingers crossed!!
Cheers!!

It's kinda already been fixed I think in AUHB update, I was moving around a lot at work today and it doesn't drain as much, it's now like the note 20 ultra, it exists but drain is way less ☺️ happy S21U owner now ! I can rely on my battery to last all day even when out walking and moving.

Yes, so I heard and also saw your previous post about it. Glad you can enjoy your phone now. Though, I did not know the drain difference was that big between the s and note.
Good days tho'😁

By the way, does anyone know by chance what this ipsecadapter_eris wakelock is about? Found some info that it may be related to some Vpn service or wifi calls but nothing too specific and I seem to have quite a few wakelocks.

Airplane doesn't prevent the wakelock. Turning sensors off does. 👍

    Guys!!! The camera service wakelock is back! Android 12. Turning on accidental touch protection seems to reduce the amount of wakelocks but does not seem to save that much battery, this is without accidental touch protection on. So I'll provide a screenshot later today with the feature on so you can see the difference. I've emailed the CEO of Samsung to see if anything gets done about it. I'm tired of it now. It's been going on wayyyy to long 🤔😮💨🥱 so we'll see what happens.

    Ok, so today (thanks sunday) dig this issue further as too many discussion was going on but never experienced it as my S21U is just spared device and only using for development purpose.
    There are some good and bad news.
    • This seems intentional and to prevent camera motor sound while device isn't being used. I have doubt samsung gonna fix this
    • There can be some workaround/partial fix and may some good fix
    • Partial fix may have some compromisation like disable sensor at all while screen is off. This can be achieved with external app. Again there may be little drain for this app (Though should be negligible). App needs root.
    • Some system level fix (custom ROM) can be tried, I have tested one and result is attached in below screenshot. C=control (with stock) T= Test. In both tests, I couldn't find CamerService_wakelocks.
    Teseted1 for 9-10min walk + 2-3 min standby + some shaking - No wakelock detected
    Tested 2 with some semi manual changes - 5 min walk + some shake - No wake lock detected
    Restore stock and (control) and wakelocks returns.
    Important things to test are :
    • How much this makes difference practically
    • Does this breakes any camera/other important fuctions (Specifically when system level changes made)

    Main drawback is either of method needs root. Still looking if some workaround there for non root but chances are thin.
    Yet needs some more and thorugh testing. Let's see how time permits.

    Though not perfect but we can write some scripts (meanwhile Samsung fix it) that can turn off sensors while screen is off and vice versa when screen turns on.

    Which app to use or where to go to disable this wakelock?
    It's under development (testing) phase.

    Today tested effect of fix and with Sensor off method (Tool with Auto off sensor when screen is off) drain was nearly 2-3%, similar to turning off sensor manually (Benefit of fix is, it will do it on it's own, you don't needs to turn sensor On/off manually)
    Another fix is pretty cool (ROM level), No wakelocks at all. nearly 1 hr (10-15 min walk, 2-3 min screen on and rest of time in pocket in sitting position) battery drain was only 1% (attached screenshot). This fix doen't needs QS tile too.
    Unfortunately both needs root.
