    I am in the process of transferring apps. data and so on from a Galaxy Note 9 to a Galaxy S21 Ultra

    There is some issues but the biggest seems to be the horrible battery usage.
    The Note 9 had a power mode under battery/power mode mine is set to optimized

    I can not find a similar setting on the S21 Ultra.
    Can anyone advise?

    You have to long press each app >tap info>tap battery can change there , dont transfer settings over coming from different Android version and battery will take a hit for first few days until everything settles and learns your usage

    I am using a different launcher so it looks different. When I long press on an app I get options and one of those is a circle with an ! in it.
    That brings up app info

    But do you mean I have to change every app to optimize?

    I am concerned as to why a S21 Ultra with a 5000 mAh battery gets poorer battery time than a Note 9 with a 4000 mAh battery ?

    Yes in Android 12 probably was Android 11 also

    You'll have 3 selections it's no longer available in settings>apps>3 dots upper right corner>battery optimize

    It's supposed to extend battery life although I've never used it.

    Ok so I have FHD+ set
    I can not set motion smoothness to standard (60hz) because battery saving is on.
    I had to turn that off.

    What else should I do to save battery?
    I have dynamic lock screen off

    Yeah battery save automatically puts it in 60hz , turn AOD off of tap to see in settings>lock screen
    Dark mode and turn 5g off you should see significant difference

    Thanks

    Turning 5G off worked wonders for my battery usage. Do it.
