    Samsung S9 battery?
    Hi! So recently I got a Samsung Galaxy S9. The thing is, even after using or scrolling through the phone for 10 minutes, my phone loses 1% so easily. Then, I noticed that every hour it loses 2-3%. I have tried to disable all the apps I dont need, disable display, even change my theme but it seems to be consuming a lot. I tried to factory reset without the stuff I transferred from my old phone and it's still decreasing a lot. Also, on my first setup the screen was very warm. Should I just return it? Or is that normal?

    I don't have an S9, but that doesn't sound bad to me.
    What do your battery usage stats show as using the charge? Anything abnormal?
    Is your signal good?

    This is how it looks like (right now it's charging as well). I did a factory reset on my phone. I don't know if its because i'm not used to Samsung S9 from switching to apple but yeah.

    I'm not sure of your usage so I can't comment on than or the s9 as I have the plus. I can suggest you turn on battery saver mode. I use medium with network usage, play around with it and use what seems to work best for you

    Thank you! I'm just shocked because it's new. If I do switch, do you think the Huaweii P20 is decent?

    Scrolling around for ten minutes and losing 1% is not abnormal. Losing just 1% sounds pretty impressive. What is troubling is losing 2-3% an hour just on standby.
    While this is a different issue, read this post on how to troubleshoot while in safe mode.

    My s9+ worked great until I used Google maps one day on a trip. That day and ever since, it routinely needs charged almost 3 times a day. It used to easily last 8am until 6-7pm. Now by 2pm, it's dead. I disabled Google maps, it didn't help. I'm getting rid of this thing asap.

    Have you looked in Settings -> Device Maintenance -> Battery Usage to see what is heavily using the battery?

    Have you left the GPS on this whole time since the trip?
