This was really abnormal in my case but all good again after the reset.....
After my 3rd reset, this is what I get with about 90% inner screen use, full refresh rate, vivid screen and 5G, basically a non crippled device.
I learned a new word today. Thanks for that!After my 3rd reset, this is what I get with about 90% inner screen use, full refresh rate, vivid screen and 5G, basically a non crippled device.
The main difference to my previous setup, where I was getting 3-4hrs SOT, are changes to location accuracy and 'Google Services', something I saw on a YouTube channel, but can't remember which right now.
To be honest I'm extremely chuffed, don't think I can get much better, about the same now as my eponymous Note 10+ 5G which is actually still a battery life beast.
How can I set ONLY front screen to 60 Hz?
Suggest you charge full and let it rundown without plugging in in between. Then you can see what kind of battery life you get.
I'm not sure as to the accuracy of this app, for instance, my 'real life' SOT is about 2hrs short of the estimate given by the app.
I think I've seen a few people ask this already, but you've not replied. How are you going about setting only the front/cover display to 60 Hz? Please and thanks.
I think the SOT value given is based on screen being used continuously. You have to account for standby time usage too.
There are 2 batteries. It's still pretty awesome what they've put in this bad boy, though. One side has 4 cameras, 3 mics and a screen, the other has a camera 3 speakers (very good ones too) a mic and 2 screens.
Bugs are inevitable in a major OS updateI'm running 2 N10+'s. So I can't predict exactly how that hardware or UI will respond on the Fold. Samsung tends to use similar power management though and have the same issues.
The only reason I ended up with one running on Android 10 was its manufactured date, oops
However it was interesting to compare and use the 2 OS versions side by side with the same hardware and 3rd party app loads.
It could be that the Fold updates will bring fixes to bugs in Android 11. Samsung has heavily modified it as they did with Android 10.
I probably roll the dice for those.
Jumping to 12 though may bring more bugs than fixes. More than once I've seen Samsung firmware and app updates break the phone or app completely over the years
So I tend to be very conservative especially if things are running well.
It's always safer to let others be the lab rats...
Lol... Just disable or uninstall all unused apps, turn off Google Discover & Samsung Free (the swipe right on homescreen thing), disable Google (the app, not account syncing) and Google Assistant, turn off Bluetooth/NFC/GPS until you need it, use a black theme, turn off unnecessary notifications, error reporting, and feedback, use static wallpaper, stop app auto updates and auto refresh (weather, stocks, etc), turn off always-on-screen.
