I've got the same as you. I've also tried factory reset. I think this is how it's suppose to be really.. I also had better battery before all this updates tho.Mine (S21U, Exynos) has a bad battery life even after the March update. It was somehow acceptable ((5-6 hours Sot) before the Feb updates, but now is mediocre (max 4 h SoT). Stand by is ok, but as soon as I turn on the screen it drops 1% for every 3-4 minutes and this with many limitations (medium brightness, bluetooth off, location off, autosync off, 60 Hz, FHD+, dark mode, most of the apps restricted in the background, WiFi OR 4G). I suppose that if i turn everything on, as some of you do, I would get max. 3 h SoT per charge. I tried even to factory reset and manually install each app, the only back up was from Google Drive for WhatsApp. What should I do?
P30 Pro is a fantastic phone remember having it thinking do I really need to upgrade from this phone it was that good!!and still upgraded ha
For me the battery life is fine if i switch it to use 3G, if i switch it to LTE then the standby drain is horrendousTo all people with base S21 Exynos: Do you experience excessive battery drain on mobile data? I've tried troubleshooting this for weeks. Some are saying they get awesome battery life, others says it's garbage.
Ive tried factory reset. Tweaking settings etc, but no matter what, when not connected to WiFi, the battery drain is like 3x worse than any previous phone when on mobile data.
Airplane mode, of course. It's on LTE exynos that has this problem. I hope everyone with this model can report the issue in Samsung members app.
Same here. I'm waiting for the next update, if it's not gonna improve anything I'll probably sell the phone and get back to my p30 pro
Hi. Did you try to turn off 5G? My battery was horrible, did a lotta things but I think the one that made the difference was changing 5G to 4G. Now im having 8hs+ SoT
Well, like I said, I did a lotta things, I´ll list some of them
Thanks a lot and keep us updated. I'm most probably not gonna waste any more time trying to fix this. If I buy a flagship phone, I just want it to work as intended and not disable functionality that I paid for.
That's true, sadly with Samsung that's not so easy. I came from a Pixel 4Xl, great battery life, the last Samsung I had was a Galaxy S7, every Samsung I had, I had to disable, debloat and change things to get a good battery life, specially with the normal ones, the ones that are not Plus or Ultra (sorry, my english is horrible )
Battery life is bad with 4G turned on, so samsung should fix that, either they have some problem with baseband or they have wakelocks triggerd by 4G. With 3g battery life is pretty decent with bluetooth and gps on, 120hz and sync turned for all apps. What's the point of having smartphone and flagship if you have to turn off every functionality?Meh, bitching here does nothing. Y'all need to do what I did; play with it and work it out.
Find work arounds for the bad coding.
Had I not taken the -time- and trouble to do so my 10+ still be a battery hog.
Just gave you 3 or 4 good solutions. Devise your own... as each variant and user have their own unique issues and requirements.
Stock Androids are fun to play with... and almost crash proof.
Lol, a lot easier than doing regedits
