    Hey everyone,

    I have a problem with my Galaxy S8 which I bought last October. Since a few weeks my battery is draining like mad, if I use it for 10 minutes, like reading an article or browse facebook or instagram, I lose 5 - 7% battery life. These days I can't go anywhere wothout a power bank and there has no change in the behavior of me using my phone from since I got it.

    I also did some digging, I even have location off except for phone GPS, have battery saving mode on 24/7 do weekly cleanup of cashes and stuff yet nothing.
    Even writing this post on my phone cost 4% battery, it's highly annoying and I am getting frustrated by it.

    However I do use google play music and a BT headset, maybe this couls be the cause?

    I've always been an iPhone user but the S8 made me change. However this zeriously ia making me consider changing back.

    Sure can! Bluetooth in particular can be a battery hog.
