    My google play services stays active in back ground around 22 hrs/day, draining my battery. I did not noticed this until i mount my second SIM card. Since than two google play services in my app, is this normal ? One of google play services in active in back ground 22 hrs and draining about 10% of battery and the second one maybe active 5 hrs and draining 0.1%,,,
    I try to reboot and wipe cahche, i cleared cache on both apps, i also clear all data on both apps, and restarting in safe mode and using for a day make no difference. I also check sync problems, no sync problems
    Have i something more to try before restoring to factory settings ?
    Thank you in advance

    All normal, a factory reset will do nothing.

    so sounds like you have done all the troubleshooting (https://www.maketecheasier.com/fix-google-play-services-battery-drain-android/) that can be done other then a factory reset. try doing a hard reset instead of a factory reset. you will need to use the power+vol button combo:https://www.hardreset.info/devices/samsung/samsung-galaxy-a8-2018/

    also keep in mind that your battery is almost at its end of life period. most batteries have a life span of about 3-4 years or sooner depending how much you use the phone and how frequent you charge it.

    oh yeah i forgot to mention that if you do a hard reset, you will trip FRP (factory reset protection) and you will need your google account info to bypass it.
