    So after the recent update and me activating Samsung Cloud, I noticed my battery life worsening. Normally, my phone eats up 8-9%/hr on active use (online gaming with Clash Royale), and around 2%/hr on standby (dual sim with 4G on). I noticed that lately it's been worse, reaching 16%/hr in gaming. I top it up to full and after 2 hrs of normal use I check GSAM and this is what I see:

    It comes with the latest update. So far from what I can see its the best way to backup your phone. The problem is the battery sucker.

    Strange, Samsung cloud did not appear to me in battery usage at all. No apparent consumption.
    Dont want to start another thread: my cloud don't do automatic backup. Auto backup is on, cloud should perfrom automatic back up when on wifi, charging and display off. I let the phone for several days , no back up. Manual backup works, auto no. Your cloud do automatic back-up ?

    Yup it appears to be running on autobackup. Interestingly, I only see this the first few of hours after unplugging. After that, it seems to stop using battery as it's percentage starts decreasing. It's as if it's not yet done backing up, but continued to do si after unplugging. Will see after a few days if this continues. I'm wondering if this is just because there's a lot of stuff on my phone that needs backups.
