- Deleted Device Health Manager since it's not responsible for battery stats and auto brightness on samsung phones, Samsung has its own services for those stats, namely SDHMS.
- Deleted apps for test purposes
- Waiting for your feedback

We're now at:
- 245 Deleted apps
- 3 Disabled apps (uninstalling these will break apps.)
- 165 Kept system apps

Latest preset update has improved battery life significantly, expect around 6h or more of SoT depending your usage according to my calculations (75% = 5h).
Keep in mind that, these stats include 2h straight of Duo video call/screen sharing.

Sounds good. But what do you mean when saying

- Clean interface by moving all camera extensions to the "More" section

Is that something we need to do and how?

I mean to take all mode to the more section, that way, when camera app starts it doesn't have to load all those mods before you actually need them. It's negligible, but still helps sometimes.

I am not able to get multi window working after the debloat. Nothing happens on pressing the multi windows button in task manager and the multistar module just crashes. Can you suggest which package might be causing this?

You go to "more" section, hold one of the mods, it'll let you rearrange them. You now arrange them as you wish and move the ones on the bottom row up top in the section.

    @Hamid Chikh Do the ADB Commands from your OP survive reboots?
    What do you mean survive reboots? As far as i understand Yes ADB commands stay there even you reboot it. Still using hamid MyPreset list on my new S22Ultra the only additional i make is Samsung Keyboard can uninstall now doesn't affect accessibility

    Greetings to all, and I certainly hope everyone is doing well. Just dropped by for a little thread cleaning since things were starting to get a little heated.
    While you may agree / disagree with the topic of this thread, I will ask you all politely to please stay on topic related to the S21 device for which this thread is intended.

    Thank you all for your cooperation, and a pleasant day to all.

    It improved my app responsiveness.

    Nah but seriously, click on search this thread then type "cpu responsiveness" and you will find your answer in these 175 pages.

    Everything in this thread is safe to do or it wouldn't be here. You can try for yourself and see what changes you notice. Failing to follow directions however, will lead to issues.
    On a stock Samsung the worst that can happen is the need to do a factory reset. Generally it's almost impossible to crash a stock Android but not completely impossible🤣

    Bare in mind each user needs and setup are unique so what works well for some might not for you. Try to learn and understand what you're disabling or enabling and any dependencies.
    Any changes could have far reaching and unseen consequences otherwise.


    Doing a few or groups at a time rather then blindly doing all edits at once may save you time in the long run especially if you don't understand exactly what you are modifying.
    It's a learning curve and somewhat trial and error.
    Many times you find dependencies by accidentally disabling a needed service or app. It may take some time until you notice the anomaly you created. Androids should be very predictable and stable...
    Keeping a log of the mods can be useful.

    That said all Samsung's need to be optimized to obtain best performance... get use to it.

    I made the switch to Google Pixel 6 today

    Pretty sure @Dj daudi , @Kris_b1104 and the others are plenty capable of answering all th questions. I'll make a modified copy of this thread for Pixel too. Good bye guys, take care of this thread for me.
    Pixel 6 review and comparaison with S21 coming ...

    What will I gain with this, wont this increase battery consumption..???
    Disable all Device Care power adaptations except for the display/cpu one.
    The power saving modes never worked right, can cause increased battery use and can cause erratic behavior.
    Find the hogs and deal with each on a case by case basis. Although the bucket concept is a Google Android one, Samsung's will run better without it.

    Both my N10+'s, one on Pie and one running on 10 run best like this. No adaptive time needed🤣

    {Mod edit: Quoted post has been deleted}
    It's my phone, I paid for it with my money and do what I want with it. I appreciate the effort of people like Hamid that try to give more choices to the consumer. If you don't want that, just ignore the thread. Easy.
    Oh and he's not responsible for anything wrong that happens if I mess up, in the end it's my choice to do this.
    Have a nice day.

    NO BLOATWARE REMOVED. I reinstalled all the bloatware I previously removed and then updated my phone to One UI 4.1 AVC8. This is with no bloatware removed, so imagine what it'll be when I disable over 100 system apps.

    I did however, follow all the ADB commands that are suggested in OP. I'm running on FHD+, Adaptive Motion Smoothness (via Galaxy Max Hz app), Processing speed set to Optimized. Enabled CPU Responsiveness, enabled performance limit. I know it sounds crazy, but I get the best of both worlds with the performance limit ON and CPU Responsiveness ON, the phone is insanely fast and battery is great. I tried different combinations and this has been my best result in terms of battery life and I'm still at 42%. My benchmarks are still 1200, 3400.

    No power saving. No adaptive power saving. Adaptive battery off. No adaptive brightness. I have a bunch of apps in sleep and deep sleep. Mostly WiFi since I work remotely and some light LTE usage. I turned off 5G. I manually set RAM Plus to 1GB. Dark Mode and my Location are on at all times.

    I think the adb commands help more than debloating the phone based on my results.

    Some of those apks on the block list just sit there and do nothing unless needed.
    You need to know what you're blocking and if it really needs/should to blocked.
    Dependencies, dependencies, dependencies, the app names and functions can be deceiving.
    Samsung's have so many features you may never realize what you lost and for little or no gain.

    The Google system and user apps are some of the worst offenders.
    1- I have been uninstalling apps over adb for a long time now, and from a functionality standpoint, they don't interfere with the user experience, but on the contrary, uninstalling them improves the experience.
    2- There are no apps that "just sit there", they all will consume power and resources on the background, only noticeable on the long run.
    3- This is an extensive, maxed out and extreme list of bloatware, you can of course choose to skip some of those apps if you need them, your use case may be different then mine.
