    My battery doesn't seem to be lasting as long as it use to. I don't have a lot of apps installed. I wonder If Samsung is throttling the battery with updates. Sorry if this thread already exists.

    If you have facebook + messenger, try disabling/uninstalling and just use the actual web link.

    Clear app cache after you uninstall that.

    I have exactly the same problem, despite trying a factory reset and reinstalling the firmware fresh. using Facebook app doesn't seem to make much of a difference, it's rubbish anyway. I do restrict background use for the Facebook app though. 3 hour screen on is absolute maximum I can ever achieve now and I normally have to charge when I get home from work. I used to get a good hour more than that and never needed to charge during the day. its the primary reason I will change my phone after a year as I don't think the battery will last two

    Samsung is throttling the battery? I never heard of such a thing. Wasn't it Apple slowing down the clock speeds on their older phones to make their batteries last longer?
    Anyways, have you checked your battery stats? It should tell you what percentage of your battery each active app is using.
