    Just saying, my four year old iPhone doesn’t have any battery problems.

    Sounds like the problem is with the battery.
    I had something similar that happened in my previous Samsung Note 4 after 5 years of good service. The battery would constantly drain and heat up whilst on idle. And at one point it would completely drain even with a full charge. Eventually I had to put it into Ultrapower saving mode and the problem fixed itself however I would only have access to my basic apps.
    I was fortunate to have a Samsung store where I live (Melbourne, Australia) and they replaced the battery for Free.

    I was having the same issue with my LG V30 ThinQ. I would be going about my business at school, or at home, and pull it out. And for no apparent reason, it was extremely hot to the point where I could not hold it with my bare hand. In 20 or so minutes, I would lose almost all of my battery. Since then I've switched to the Note 9 and have had no issues similar to that of the V30 whatsoever. To this day I don't have a clue in the slightest as to what could have been causing this.

    I have the same issue with my S9+. It is usually very good, but occasionally, I will have a week where it just consumes battery like a glutton while idling. The only way I've found to fix this is to go through your app list, one by one and check apps for abnormal battery consumption. Usually I will find some totally random hidden app like Bixby Service or some BS that has consumed 40% of my battery in the background. Disable the app in the background and that fixes it.

    This is why removable backs is much more practical though you lose the glossy metal nostalgic expensive feeling that iPhones have. S6 Samsung goes the compete with apple route and replacing batteries becomes history. But they don't care, they want your battery to die so you go buy a new phone

  • vinceguy1
    vinceguy1 Před 7 dny

    See if you can get rid of the hardware capability of wireless charging, if anything I'm sure it's that the battery wears and tears over time, Samsung phones are notorious for that. But I'm curious about how the wireless charging capabilities could impact the battery life, especially if over time something has created a complication with it. If you don't use it, it might be something worth trying if it's possible. You should also try backing up your S9 and restoring the backup to your test S9 so it's exactly the same, I doubt any data could've gotten corrupted or could be effecting the battery like that, but it's definitely another step to try.

    AccuBattery will give you better estimates once it's been installed for a while and can estimate the battery health. You could also try running a wakelock detector, although you might need to root the phone to do that.
    Samsung also uses Qualcomm chips in US phones and Exynos chips elsewhere so it might be worth it to run CPU-Z just to make sure both of your devices have the same chip

    TECH WORLD Před 8 dny

    It might be due to different chipsets used in the phone snapdragon and exynos

    Sometimes Google play services will activate randomly and drain like 20% of your battery and also make your phone hot. I found this out looking through the developer options. Idk why it does this but sometimes it does. Google play services will run for like 3 minutes and some how drain more battery than the screen being on all day. Hope this was useful info and also I'm rocking the note 8. 👍

    This is actually a common issue I & many other people have faced being a Samsung user for many years, not only with their phones but with their smart watches too.
    The user experience varies wildly between users & all I can put it down to is Quality Control.
    I've been on both ends of the spectrum, from a Note 3 that would easily last a day & change while others were reporting crap battery.
    An S4 Active that barely lasted 12 hours out of the box. My S7 was amazing! It would last 1.5 - 2 days with relative ease so when I got my Note 9 with a bigger battery than the S7, I was hyped I might finally have a phone that could last longer but alas, it wasn't to be. While other people rave about the Note 9 battery life, I'm once again, lucky to get over 12 - 16 hours so... it is inconsistent to say the least.
    Then I had a 10 - 12 hour battery on the Gear S2 with no AOD use while other people were getting a day. my Gear S3 was AMAZING when it came out, able to last 3 - 4 days until Tizen 3 update rolled out & cut that in half.
    Now, everywhere I see, people are slamming the Galaxy Watch as rubbish, when I can get 6 days out of it.
    So, I'd be interested to know if it's the same story across even laptops & tablets or even anything Samsung makes with a battery, because they are clearly having issues.
    I don't know what the law is in Canada but here in Australia, with each of my negative experiences I just kept at Samsung until I got the device the majority of other users were raving about & in that sense, Samsung has been great.
    I'd recommend it.
    Good Luck.

    Ya I faced a similar issue. But I use a low end Samsung J7 prime. I have been using it for nearly 2 years and I have noted the charge draining issue. But it got fixed up automatically after I upgraded to andriod nogut (a year ago). Now its doing good my phone can run more than 3 days in idol conditions provided no wifi and is in airplane mode. I dont actually fully charge my phone, I charge just up to 65%-70% but I do drop it to nearly 20%. Hope that you find your answers..

    I bought an s6 off eBay in perfect condition that would drop from 100% to like 70% battery in 1 hour after a full night charge. And them, sometimes when it was at like 10% battery and I plugged it into the charger, it would drop to like3% instantaneously. This is why I opted for the Google pixel 2 vs s9 this time around.

    apparently when your phone is barely connected to a network itll use a ton of power trying to connect to the network, which i believe because me and my gf had the same phone on different networks but her phone would be barely connected while at home when i had 2 ish bars. (both phones iphone 6s)
    check how good your cell service is wherever you are the most, i dont know if you know about this, i imagine you do but you never know.

    Huawei Mate 20 pro has an agressive app closing software. It's the main reason it's a 2-3 day phone.

    MY Htc m8 had a 3 hour battery life with the screen turned off and kept being hot in my pocket. Then i realised Asphalt 8 was in the background. When I started closing all the apps and then turned off the screen, I got a full day's use.

      +Mandragoras My charging port broke. I went to repair it. It's still not charging properly (I have to bend the cable) though they changed the charging port. It's no longer financially viable so I've bought the Pocofone F1 and waiting for it to arrive.
      Otherwise I'd have kept the phone for a long time. I've put an Sdcard in it to expand the memory, and with a 2,5 Gzh proecessor it still runs as good as budget phones that are 200USD. Asphalt 8 still works fine on low to medium resolutions.
      Also the speakers are really good

      HTC One M8! What an out of this world amazing phone (without taking into account its camera). I'm still rocking it. I have an either fake or degraded "new" battery in it right now because the original battery had too many charge cycles and had to be replaced. Even with this, slightly worse than a new original battery, I get 6h 30min SOT purely on CHclip. And it is just a 2600mah battery. I suspect it will have to completely die on me before making me replace it.

So to cancel this u need to go to settings > apps > and the to enter every app and dont allow them to operate in the backround. I know its sound far fitch , but u have to try this Linus.

    I would advise all software developers that Linus does not believe in freedom of exchange of code and apps that you create yourself. So his forum is not for developers but geeks not nerds. It basically is for people who can build a computer but not write any programs for that computer. My free app and code for that app were taken down for 'advertisement'. I believe that they have no developers on staff so the moderators seem to be foreign or unable to understand even a hello world program written in any language.
    So to all software devs and computer scientists: Stay away from his forum and stick to Stack overflow or anything else.
