The S24 Ultra Battery Is Garbage

The S24 Ultra Battery Is Garbage

    I bought an S24 Ultra hoping for better battery life than my S22 Plus, but the S24 Ultra’s battery life is terrible! I get a maximum of 5 to maybe 5 hours and 30 minutes of screen-on time, and the battery dies by mid-day if I don't charge it. This is unacceptable.

    With a 5000 mAh battery, it should last longer, but I’m only getting about 12 hours of mixed usage. Samsung, you are not Apple! 18 hours isn't a full day, and 12 hours is definitely not. If I get up at 6 AM, this phone is dead by 6 PM—not at 30% or even 15%, but completely dead!

    This phone should have better battery life. A screen-on time of 7 hours would be nice. Traveling for a full day, using GPS, and watching YouTube podcasts drains the battery quickly. It even loses nearly 1% per hour overnight, going from around 90% to 77%. A YouTube test showed an M2 MacBook Air drains less overnight.


    However, there might be hope. I got a notification that GroupMe was draining the battery, and the One UI 6.1.1 update is coming soon. I hope the battery performance improves.

God bless, and Tech Talk to You Later!
