9 hours is amazing :highfive:


Just updated to the ATE6 firmware and charged from 1% to 100%, then restored some apps. Hoping the new firmware will be even more efficient .

Let's see:

ATE6 seems to improve battery life ... so far so good.

Regular s20 exynos

Can somebody compare this usage with yours regular S20 with exynos. Is my App usage to high? I use phone with 120Hz, wi fi always on, mobile data not used, gps off, bt off, always on is set to Tap to show, sync on for 1 account only to sync gmail, rais to wake and other stuff are turned off.
Im on latest ate6 update, done factory reset after update and clean setup without any restore.

    Why?

    Why did you all buy this phone in the first place if you are running it at such low profile configs :D lol
    You'd have saved lot of money and pain if you just bought an ordinary phone to run the current configs you people spend hours to configure on s20 and post SOT times desperately here to create yourself a delusion that battery life is better on this phone ????

    Off top of my head, turned off 5g, no AOD, dark theme (obviously), system tracing off, location off. I tried with both adaptive performance on/off (seemingly same result). I believe this is everything, I removed a few apps from Samsung.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond. I have the Snapdragon model. What specifically did you disable? I tried to disable 5g but I dont have the option to edit my APN (Visible is my provider)

    Your thoughts are the exact same as mine. The OP you can just out of the box start using and get great battery. I havent done much tweaking to this phone which is probably the reason I am not getting good battery life, but if anyone can suggest what to disable, I will gladly do it. Really all I want is 120z and always on display turned on, bluetooth always on (for my car and bluetooth speakers), GPS always on and other than that, I use wifi when at work and home and do some light gaming and that's really it.

    EDIT: attached my typical day. As you can see, not that great...

    Hey.
    I have copied in the list of my disabled apps / processes blow (sorry, as I'm a new active user here, I can't attach pictures yet).
    I used CCSWE App Manager to list all processes, then went through them and disabled what I don't want or need via ADB commands on my PC. Nothing uninstalled, just disabled! In case I will need some of the apps one day, I can simply reactivate them without having to reset my phone. Didn't experience any issues or force closes after disabling these apps. The phone just runs fast and smooth.

    I also manually added all apps that don't need to run and sync in the background to "sleeping apps" or "deep sleeping apps" under Battery -> Power Management.

    My other settings: GPS on, Wifi on, Wifi Calling on, Auto Rotate on, Dark Mode on, 120hz on (also tried the 96hz option, but wanted to stay with 120hz. But you can try 96hz to save around 6% battery per charge), AOD tap to show, Power Mode set to Optimised. That's about it.

    As already mentioned, I'm more than happy with the phone and battery life now. Yesterday I had to recharge it at 4pm after unplugging it from the charger at 7am the day before and got to a total of 7:15 screen on time.

    Just let me know if you need more details, I'm happy to help :)

    Hi there!
    After two "rounds" with OnePlus (6T and now 7T), I'd like to come back to a smaller form factor and a Samsung product: so the Galaxy S20 4G (Exynos variant) intrigues me a lot...
    Am I crazy to make the switch from my 7T?
    I'm particularly concerned about battery life: the 7T is not considered a "battery phone" but not an hungry one either, and with my current usage I rarely go below 40% at the end of the day...
    Should I expect similar results from a Galaxy S20?
    TIA and Ciao from Italy!

    Hey Sergio,

    Coming from a OnePlus 6T that I had used since its launch in October 2018, I switched to the regular S20 5G with the Snapdragon processor just three days ago - also because I wanted a smaller and especially lighter phone and got disappointed by OnePlus' strategy of big phones and now big prices.

    I can say that with 120hz on, screen brightness set to auto and AOD on via tap to wake, I'm constantly getting more screen on time than on the OnePlus 6t! I also deactivated some Samsung apps that I don't use via ADB (e.g. Bixby).

    On the first day of usage I got around 5:30 hours SOT, on the second day 6:15 and now after the third day 6:45 hours. The S20 is definitely learning how you use your phone and saves battery accordingly.

    I'm definitely happy that I switched to the S20. I first wanted to go for the S10e due to the perfect form factor, which I had already bought for my wife, but was concerned because of the smaller battery (even with the Snapdragon variant). It turns out that she has a consistant SOT between 5 and 6 hours, but now I don't want to miss the 120hz on my S20 :) You can even squeeze out a little more SOT on the S20 with the 96hz mod.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Cheers and stay healthy
