    Hello,

    I upgraded from a S8Plus to a Note10Lite, and have noticed that the battery drain is very high.

    Even on standby it consumes 1% per hour, and I have turned most things off.



    When I go into the Settings/Apps and check each App for battery drain, the following show the highets -



    Find My Mobile - 20% used since last Charge

    Voice Wake Up - 20% used since last Charge



    I've already turned both off.



    Appreciate any ideas.

    Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:


    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which may show Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).

    You might have to install a 3rd party battery monitor, like GSam Battery Monitor, to get the Cell Signal Strength graph.

    Also, remember that battery will still be used when the phone is powered on but idle. If you're losing 1% per hour while idle, that's 100 hours of standby, which is >4 days -- that's pretty good!

    Thanks I will submit usage pic once battery is recharged.


    Can I ask what is the difference between the battery usage figures under each app as apposed to the battery usage figures under the device care?


    i.e.

    1. device care/battery/battery usage.

    2. settings/apps/voice wake-up/battery.


    Thanks

    I don't know much about Samsung's Device Care app. Let me see what @mustang7757 thinks.

    Hello, How can that be, as the Device Care App doesn't even list Voice Wakeup, yet under the app it showed 20% usage since last charge?

    Strange , 20% usuage should show in device care , maybe force close that see if it goes back down

    Like I mentioned force stop them , then monitor after you charge the phone and need to charge again.

    ok I have done so, I read that they come back once the phone reboots?

    It shouldn't as a reboot resarts all it's process over again.

    As an aside, I'd point out that your cell signal is poor, which can contribute to battery drain even if the phone is also using wi-fi with good signal.

    Ok I did a force stop, and the button went out, I then went back into the app after 1/2hr and the force stop button was available again.

    Hi, I chatted with Samsung they said Batt usage for these apps was fine -

    Because they are not apps they are features of the android software find my mobile will always stay switched on as long as you have a Samsung account added to the device

    Yup! I find that almost every battery issue I've ever had is related to signal more than anything else.

    13% is little high , mine stays at 5% like I mentioned force stop it and watch it again through a full battery cycle.

    Mine says 17% I bought it yesterday and I have to charge it 3 times a day and I don't even use it... Everything is off but I can't fix that...
