    I just bought a s20 and I'm loving the phone. Got a great deal at bestbuy ($800 unlocked) only thing I don't like is the battery. Any tips? I am running the 120hz feature and I'm not looking to turn it off to be honest. Any tips? Thanks.

    Disable the Google app and whatever useless Google/Samsung services are running in the background.

    And at least use dark mode if you're not gonna use it in 60Hz.

    Forgive me but I'm kind of a Samsung noob. How do I go about this?

    How long have you had your phone? Because you need to give a good 7 to 10 days to learn your habits and allow the battery to settle in. After which you should see some improvement.

    There is also a trick you can do with Bixby to run 120Hz with medium power saving if you don't mind some trade off of running the medium power saving mode...

    I have the unlocked version of the s20. I have had it for about 3 to 4 days. I also work from home so I use my phone during the week as a phone. Meaning I'm on the phone 3 to 6 hours a day. I can also readily get 5 to 6 hours of screen time during this use and I know it will only get better. I am running the bixby routine to have my phone at medium power but still run 120hz screen.

    I had the s20 plus prior and with similar use I would get 7 to 8 hours of screen on time running the same bixby routine.

    Give it time. You will like it, I'm sure of it.
