    So, was rocking on battery life for days. All of a sudden "Android System" starts to be at the top of the list of battery consumers. yesterday I only got 2 hours and 40 min of SOT with 30% battery left. This is significantly less than what I was getting.

    Anyone else experience this? What services would peg Android System?

    Don't have the Note 10 yet, but I have had similar problems with Android System and the impact on battery life across all three of my Samsung phones (including my Note 9). (Sorry I don't actually have a helpful response.)

    My Android System is never that high. Try putting your device into medium/maximum power saving mode. Then switch it back to whatever you had set up.

    Does it persist after a reboot? Or a cache partition wipe? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-40661

    Trying now. This has never worked in the past for me. But willing to give it go.

    I came here to look for this! My Note10+ battery life has been tremendous since I got it last Thursday. Today, it's going by so fast! Android System is the culprit. I've wiped Cache Partition and rebooted to be avail. Really frustrating.

    I am wondering if it was an update that may have loaded the past few days. None of the fixes have worked for me yet.

    Android System is using 8% of my battery as of now. I did see that you have the option of turning off Android System and stopping it from running in the background. Maybe this will help (shoulder shrug). I haven't had a problem with my battery life so far.

    I had an update over the weekend but it's worked great for days. Are you with AT&T?

    My understanding is that can mess with the functioning of your phone so it is not advisable.

    That has me wondering as well. While I'm still on the Note 9, my battery all of a sudden absolutely tanked yesterday with minimal use.

    I just checked, and it's the same for me! down to 53% already. I believe I was about 20-25% better yesterday.

    When you are in your battery settings click on Android System and there will be a setting to restrict it working in the background, so make sure 'Allow Background Activity' is restricted.
    Every time your phone reboots this setting will default to allowing background activity.

    I just turned it off when I saw this it has access to the background, but i didnt need to do this the first 3 days I've had it.

    This has happened with every Samsung phone I've owned. Usually goes back to normal in a day or two once the system finishes compiling whatever its looking for.

    They could be wrong, but as I mentioned above, I have read from numerous posters here that that is not advisable

    I've also had a problem with this. A couple of theories. I used my phone for the first time this weekend with WiFi connected. Which should help battery life. Today is the first day for me at work using cell signals and I'm wondering if it is something that the phones internal brain needs to adjust for. The second thing is that some apps have reared their ugly head according to accubattery (everyone should download this). Like speed test. It was working in the background for 15 minutes before I deleted the thing. Why in the world would it do that? I hadn't used it for a couple days. And I was getting notifications from apps that had no business notifying me. Just sucks up juice and they were deleted. Hopefully things will improve because it's going back before 2 weeks if it doesn't. BTW I wrote here how those battery drain tests were BS. Showing the Note 10 plus ruled the world. It doesn't. It's not even close too the Max.

    Yeah I hear ya. I have experienced this before as well. Really frustrating though. I was just saying yesterday that this might be the perfect phone. I should have never said that. LOL
