    For all of you facing a battery draining issue make a factory reset and register your GS9 again as a new phone NOT as a backup from your previous phone. I had the same issue and it definetely made a lot of improvement for me. Hope it works for you too....

    You mean as new/start as new device from the Google setup right? Also OTA updates are coming in now too.

    Factory reset and set up as new device Not as a backup from your previous mob. Dont worry you cant miss it. There is a specific section where you will be asked. None of your existing apps or old data will be transfered. So you will have to dowload them one by one again. I know its a hassle but this has worked for me.

    We're you able to transfer text messages and call logs from the old phone to the new phone? If so, how did you do it?

    I did a restore. Took the latest update last night and all seems fine. But I also use bk disabler and disabled many Google apps I don't use...

    How come I can't find bk disabler in play store. Anyone has screenshot of how it looks like in play store? Thx

    I always start from scratch myself. I always figured using a backup was a recipe for rogue apps and such. Especially with different versions of software. I prefer to start clean.
