It's amazing how much we actually use our phones in a given day, especially when we watch "videos"! Rate this thread to express how many hours of screen-on time you can get on the Samsung Galaxy S11 before depleting the battery.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

I get around 5 hrs of screen on time on th lte varient (exynous)(fhd+ 60hz)(no always on screen) i think it should get more with the 4000 mah battery , also there is some standby drain , i checked and turned off couple of google services as well as stopped some background processes from facebook , hope to see an update to fix the issues

What adjustments have you done in your s20? Would like to know.

Another update:
Keeping the same setting except going for 120hz display.

SoT - 7 hrs and 6 mins
Total battery life - 13 hours

I might keep this setting going forward.

Why doesn't Samsung have SoT included in their own in-house Battery monitor? Coming from OnePlus 7 and Pixel 3. Can't recall the last phone that didn't include SoT since last full charge.

How do you turn off 5G? I can't find an option in the settings

I think I'm getting even worse than this...! 2.5 hours SOT and 32% remaining (4G Exynos).

I read somewhere that using smart switch at set up maybe a cause - is there any truth in this?

No, it originated from some clitbait titles if I remember correctly?.
However, I do not restore apps and their settings(restoring other stuff should be just fine) as they do not run properly sometimes that way.
