    I don't normally disable anything and run my device the way it was meant to be run on high performance mode. I might turn off Bluetooth and certain things if I'm not using them but that's about it.
    Yeah, I'm the same way. I paid (am paying for) an S20 Ultra, so I'm not going to turn it into an A series phone just to conserve battery.

    So far, turning off Bluetooth has dropped me to 1% per hour ideal battery drain, which is enough for me. I still have high performance mode on, along with AoD, 120hz, 60-70% brightness, along with WiFi always on.

    The thing I try to do though is turn off most app notifications, and make sure that only the essential apps can run in the background. I also have a black AMOLED wallpaper and try to keep my widgets down to the essential.

    In the end, while I know how trivial battery life is when I'm home all day, I just like feeling like I'm getting the battery life advertised...unlike the camera.

    Is "Bluetooth scanning when off" deactivated in the "Location" settings?
    Hmm I'll have to check! Thank you for pointing that out! I'm still quite new to BT.

    The only reason Bluetooth was always connected was for my Mi Band 4, for the notifications. Besides that, having it in just let me auto connect with my car.

    That was kind of convenient, but I don't know if it's worth that amount of idle battery drain.

    1% an hour overnight is still a notable drain.


    Not using the s20, but I had a similar problem on another phone. I put it in airplane mode overnight. I turned it on in the morning. Problem fixed.

    I have the Snapdragon S20. My phone will drop about 4% drain over 7 to 8 hours. My battery life has been good for me. I use the medium power hack through bixby routine that always phone to use medium battery power and still run 120hz screen. This consistently gives me 5 to 7 hours of screen on time.

    I bought mine when it first come out, before cuz i had to waitlist...doesn't perform like it should. Battery only last about 6 hours. Only texting, little tik tok, wifi on, Bluetooth on for smart watch just during the day. Upload speed very slow (Verizon fault maybe?) Videos very very blury when sent in message. Only reason I picked this phone was for speed and camera quality and battery life and neither is as says.

    I am using s20 ultra exynos version, for me idle battery at night during night 12 am to morning 8 am is nearly 5% ie., 95% ftom 100%. Is it too much or fine. I use 120 hz with wifi or mobile data open.


    Idle time at night from 10:30 pm to 6:30 am, go from 99-100% to 93-95% on an average night.

    S20 Ultra

    Went from 80% to 40% in a little under 5 hours, with only 1 hour 18 minutes of screen on time. I spent 20 minutes taking photos and shooting some videos, but damn, does the camera eat THAT much battery?! Geez, how do you use this phone all day when the camera eats so much battery?

    I find the issue is with the standby time....... I think the battery performs well when the phone is being used (if that makes sense)
    Mine is the 12gb/128gb Exynos version.
