    I have an S10 and it's less than a month old. I'm using the Medium Power Saving setting.

    YouTube (305.7%) and Chrome (126.1%) have used a combined 431.8% of battery in 1 week.

    All of my apps, especially these two, have background activity restricted and battery use optimised.

    The percentages seem a bit high. Aside from normal browsing and video watching that would use battery, are these percentages normal?

    Over 100% is impossible, so it definitely seems a bit high. The percentage is the percentage of total battery use, so if a total of 30% of your battery was used, YouTube used 90% of the total battery? I doubt it. (And if you add Chrome, 120% of your battery was used - that means free power, and if you play it right with Elon Musk, you'll be a billionaire before the end of the year.)

    I think you're misinterpreting something.

    I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the S10 forum since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    Adding percentages over a week is not valid math.

    You can take an average or give a high/low range but adding the values has no meaning.

    In that mode you should be getting excellent battery life , do you see issue with battery draining?

    I agree with you, I probably am misunderstanding something.

    When I go into Device Care, the percentages I posted were in the list of apps that appeared. Then, if I tap on battery usage, the percentages are different. The stats are different today thsn yesterday, but as you said, it would be impossible to have percentages over 100%, so I have no idea why it said over 100% for both of those apps yesterday. I included a screenshot for refefence. Would you know what I'm getting at or what I'm not understanding?

    Yes, terribly. I rarely would get down to 15% even with heavy usage with my Note 9, but with the S10, I've hit 15% and below everyday.
