Has anyone test this difference on the battery drain? I mean the stock settings.
I would like to change my S21 Ultra but still nervoused about a battery life :D

I did a bit of testing and found the difference negligible. I'd rather have the higher refresh rate.
For me battery drain was fixed with location accuracy settings and 'Galaxy Max Hz' for low refresh rate on screen off and AOD.

I have an honest question. If you are disabling AOD when the screen is closed, but that is (theoretically) the best time for it, is there a reason to keep AOD enabled outside of being automatically turned off?

I haven't thought that much about to be honest :D Probably not.
Again, biggest battery drain for me was location accuracy, so screen refresh rate was not my main concern.

Sure, but this is the thread dedicated to refresh rate impact.

is a general discussion on overall battery life and
is about standby drain (and location is already being discussed)

That aside, it would be interesting (albeit tedious) to have the refresh rate lower on AOD idle display. This is also assuming Samsung didn't already at least do that.

Same for me. I have it set for 48Hz when idle, getting 4-4.5 hours SOT on a regular basis

What carrier you using?
When I toggle that button off I get a carrier hub processing request notification on top and it goes back to on.
I attached a picture of the notification. look at the bottom notification
