    Hey all,

    What mode have you guys been running. I just recently turn on high performance mode and have left it on without seeing much a hit on my battery life.

    Anyone else doing the same?

    yep, running high performance all the time, I think it somehow manages what you do better than the other modes which in turn gives you the best battery life but again usage are different for everyone

    Sold. I just made the switch to High Performance Mode.

    I feel empowered now. LOL

    I too am seeing the same. Hopefully it isn't a placebo effect

    I think it just hibernates things that are not used often quicker, I've been listening to music full blast for 3 hours and surfing around at the same time and I'm at 81%
    I think usage pattern /battery use are optimised towards what you do most

    Out of the box I turned on high performance mode and QHD+. Why would I buy all of the top specs then tone the phone down?

    i do turn screen brightness down though, unless watching something fancy then no more than 30% is really needed

    So what does high performance mode actually do? Doe it change the governer?

    I'd be interested in the answer total this. It implies it just turns screen to full resolution and bumps screen brightness a little. Is that it or are there other changes?

    to be honest, I've no idea about the nitty gritty behind the scene tech bits of it, just going by personal experience and using 2 different Notes, could be a placebo effect

    First full day with high performance on after a typical work day and it's only at 70% and peen off the charger for 10 hours. It seems no different.

    Exactly! Like people who buy a Ferrari but only drive it to the cafe once a week??

    Ok, at first I thought you were spitting a whole lot of nonsense but I ran high performance since 6am this morning. With same usage, I would've already had to charge my phone, however, it's 7pm and I still have 49% battery life left.....

    The f*** in the world is this. Lol

    If you already have the display setting in WQHD+, all performance mode does is increase brightness 10%

    This. I don't have my S8+ on HPM but have it on WQHD+ . Battery life is more or less the same with FHD+

    When you set it to high performance mode, it states what it does. Other than putting your screen at the highest resolution, if you haven't set it that way to begin with, it increases your brightness by 10 percent. It doesn't say that it speeds up the processor in any way. So that's why it makes no difference in your battery life. I can't imagine, therefore, why some have found it makes an improvement in battery life. But I will give it a try.

    Depends on power usage vs wattage vs time. Apples custom designed processors actually have in the past (not sure about current) used significantly more power then snapdragon and others at higher clock speeds. The trick with the Apple processor is that it uses more power to do a given task but it also completes it quicker which allows it to return to sleep state faster. Sleep state was also lower that any other manufacturer at that time.

    So if high performance mode modifies the governer then it's possible that you could have more battery life.

    Same applies to modems in these phones. A slower connection will result in more battery drain bc the modem is awake longer.

    Thank you! Definitely trying this. Why buy the best phone to just tone down the specs?

    My overnight battery life improved? Normally have 92-93% in the morning, I had 98% this morning with Performance Mode on - Holy Cheet Mhan!!! Just did it yesterday - will have to watch day-to-day! Amazed - I've been running "Mid" Battery Saving Mode since I got the phone "just because" that's what I did on my Note 7 and my S7 Active - Duh!
