    Hi -
    Galaxy S21 Ultra here. Got the phone and started using it just over a year ago last week. I have a work profile on it to connect to work apps, but other than that a typical user - Instagram, web browsing, Netflix, google maps, etc

    It might be my imagination but the battery life is getting awful. to the point i have battery anxiety. i have it set to charge to 85%, and i charge it nightly (and maybe 2 or 3 times during the day to get a few %).

    Can someone that's smarter than me please look at the below screenshots and see if it looks like normal use? I could (if necessary) do a factory reset if someone thinks that would help.

    I've uploaded images (screenshots) of the battery usage, apps using it, and accubattery

    Images referenced in the above post are here:

    If you're only charging it to 85% and it's lasting around 15 hours I would say that's not bad

    OH - yeah sorry that's part of Microsoft Defender (threat protection) - enforced on the work profile; nothing i can do about that other than disable work profile (which i do on weekends, etc)

    Hey. My feedback (sorry I didn't look at your screenshots as I am not en expert anyway). When I first got my S21u battery life was amazing. Nearly 2 days with heavy use. But quickly (withing 2-3 weeks) it dropped back to sometimes needing a top up before end of day.
    Recently (in last couple of weeks for me) I'm definitely needing to top up before end of day. Sometimes early afternoon on heavy usage days. But I got it just after launch so it's well over a year old now so maybe to be expected.
