    I don't get a full day of use on my S22U. I assume its b/c I have the protect battery feature enabled where my charging stops at 85%. I start my day at 5 am and by 4 pm its definitely at 20%. I don't want it to get lower in fear of "damaging the battery" (don't know if those claims from older devices are still valid). I listed to audiobooks almost all day work. Mild texting, maybe 1 hour total of browsing sites and 30 mins of youtube vids. Signal is atrocious in my work office so I use wifi calling and disable 5g and use 4g/LTE. Also I turn location services off.

    Does this sound unusual or within the realms of ok? Do others charge to 100% and let their device get as low as possible? I'd like to keep this device at least a year if not longer.

    Thanks everyone!

    Try this routine (link below) and have charging stopped at 95% instead of 85%. You could look at your battery info and see what apps are using the most battery. Also have as many apps put to sleep and use the Setting/ Battery optimize several times a day which closes background apps.

    I only get 8 hours without any battery saving settings. I just have chargers everywhere and a portable one when I am out and about.

    I charge when it gets around 5 to 7% and charge up to 95 or once it reaches 100 and get over a day battery,, if your not making it between 20 to 85 in a day you charging more often and that can't be good either the more you charging because it's not lasting.
    If you want keep it between 20 to 85 use battery saver all the time u get notifications delay but there are compromises when looking for battery life in range you want it to last .

    this phone has the worst battery life of any Galaxy I've had. none of the tweaks in this forum have made any difference. I get battery anxiety by late afternoon. I'm on WiFi most of the time.

    If you tried the tweaks then I suspect your WiFi or a app gone rouge can try in safe mode for awhile see if that's the case

    What is your signal strength in dBm in the place you're in during most of the day?

    It could be worse. I once spent all night reinstalling Windows Vista when I got black screen error.

    Just curious if your phone was pre-order/launch model. On your serial number can you tell me the 4th and 5th character?

    4th character should be a T = 2022
    5th character is the month is was made.

    Next to my LG V60 this is the best battery I've ever had on a phone. All the tweaks people have posted here help. Granted you have to sacrifice pick and choose what you're willing to go without to get better battery life.

    If you're not experiencing such luck it's more likely your specific phone.

    Update - I changed the ram plus settings as somebody mentioned in the thread above, and there's a noticeable difference in my battery life throughout the day. Thanks for all the recommendations.

    What ram are you using? Mine is set to 4gb from the factory. I too am not getting good battery usage.

    Now that is a nightmare, been there I keep my phones pretty lean, so in some ways I actually enjoy a factory reset, because it's not too time consuming, and I know I'll be fixing the problem at hand, and usually a few others I didn't even notice.

    Plus I like that new phone software feel

    I changed to 2gb and didn't see any problem from lower ram. Am sure I get some battery benefit.

    I read somewhere that the S pen consumes battery when stored in the phone. Anyone tried removing it to see if it makes any difference in battery life? Just a thought.

    i guess if you don't use it at all, it would be a possibility. But I use mine daily so not an option for me!

    Hmm first time I heard that , wouldn't it try to be connecting while removed by Bluetooth?

    Yeah I checked again and found that the S pen doesn't consume enough power to be an issue. I think you're right it would use more power while in use.

    Probably either way wouldn't impact battery life
