    So I always complain about battery life. I can never en to get good battery life from any phone I get. I've tried everything. I don't believe that a flagship phone only has a battery life of 14 hours. Putting it in battery save mode defeats the purpose of buying a 'great' phone. I'm not really a power user. I don't watch that many videos. I don't play games. To have the phone use 25% in 3 hours is ridiculous. I have done factory resets, disabled bloatware, etc. Arghhhh. Any ideas? If not at least I get to rant. 😜

    Do you happen to know if you live on the outer perimeter of your service providers network reach/area?

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    keep in mind your usage. 15 min of youtube will drian battery. playing games will drain battery. at 9 am your phone estimates 11 hrs before it dies......thats not that bad. if you are a power user you might want to turn some things down. how bright do you have your phone? what performance setting do you have your phone?

    like others have said if you use your phone a lot....maybe its time to invest in a battery pack. or a car charger and mount.

    Do you have any apps that take up a lot of resources or maintain constant internet connectivity?

    Check your sync settings. For example, do you have every Google app set to sync? I turn many of those off and it helps.

    That will do it for sure. Any app making repeated communications via any network (LTE, wifi, bluetooth, IR, doesnt matter) will generally require powered resources to do so.

    I don't think the average android user realizes how much useless syncing goes on and how many google apps there are.

    Medium 20190723_083544.jpg 20190723_083602.jpg power save on my S9+ helps a lot. Background syncing left on but resolution reduced and CPU throttled for daily driving.
