    My phone has great battery life, so it's not a big deal, but this is the fastest phone I've had dropping from 100% fully charged to 99%. It usually takes 4 minutes with screen on nonstop, but it takes around 6 minutes without even messing with it at all after unplugging. My s9+, and previous gens would take over 20 minutes before it dropped its first percent down without touching the phone. I'm just curious if it's the same with y'all, or if the AOD has to do with it.

    Yep, mine takes about that amount of time, drives me bloody crackers!

    Doesn't seem to affect anything though, I can get up to two days between charges with around 6-8 hours SOT, so it clearly doesn't affect it!

    Never paid attention and don't plan to. I just use my devices and charge them when needed.

    From 100% to 99%? I don't know, maybe 5 or so minutes? Give or take a minute or two?

    If your previous phones would take 20 mins to drop 1%, I'd imagine it wasn't calculating the battery % correctly. I mean if 20 min screen time is 1% drop, then *if it were accurate* then it should take 99 x 1% drops at 20 min screen time per 1% drop.

    Quick maths:
    99 x 20 mins = 2,000 minutes total screen time
    2,000 minutes / 60 minutes = 33.33 hours screen on time

    Yeah - no chance your previous phone had 33 hours screen on time. So it just wasn't calculating the initial 1% drop accurately. The S10 is probably calculating it correctly now.

    With your S10 at 4 minutes for a 1% drop:

    99 x 4 minutes = 396 minutes total screen time
    396 minutes / 60 minutes = 6.6 hours screen on time

    Much more reasonable screen on time.

    20 minutes with the screen not being turned on at all. If I had the screen on it would take about 4 or 5 minutes.

    I've totally noticed this too. I get great battery life but that first one percent drops within what seems to be minutes. I won't even use the screen and in the short walk to the train I'll take my phone out and it reads 99%. My LG V30 stood at 100% for noticeably longer. Again though, I get great battery life so it's not really a concern, more a curiosity.

    But once the iPhone hits 99% is drops much faster. The s10 battery % I think is just more accurate.

    None of these drop rates are accurate or linear.

    If you unplug the charger the instant the phone reaches 100%, it will drop to 99% (or even 98%) before you've finished removing the plug. (That's because the phone indicates "battery charge" by the voltage on the battery, and to charge the battery the charger has to put more voltage on the battery than a fully charged battery - that's how electricity works.) So at the instant the phone says 100%, the battery is probably charged to 99% or 98%.

    (I go along with Mooncatt - I have the phone set to stop charging at 95%.)

    That's the other point I always make.

    Which 100 % are we talking about?

    100 to 99 for me is like the moment I take the phone off the charger and walk out of the bedroom daily morning lol. The first 5 percent is rapid in terms of drain. Then it always seems to settle down.
