I do not use any tricks. It is on continuously with cell tower service. It fetches in real time, receives notifications from about a dozen apps, which I view and respond too with the phone.You use some tips and tricks to save your battery. All users who use S9 plus will tell you they aren't happy with the battery life.
Yeah this is true. But we are talking to a flagship phone like the S9 plus which costs a lot. If you buy this device you want to have all your apps running and receiving all your notification as always. GPS on. We needs this. I have more battery life in my pixel 2 xl than in my S9 plus. It's all about software and optimisation. The Note 9 will have 4000 mah battery. Maybe it can last longer.I do not use any tricks. It is on continuously with cell tower service.

The reason for poor battery for most people is multiple reasons.
Always charging to 100%, having Wi-Fi scanning enabled, or even on continouslly , extended screen timeouts, having GPS on( if your not navigating), installing apps which have permission to run in the background and turn on your GPS and or WIFI.
Why does it have to be so complicated. On an iPhone you just install the app and that is it. It don't use allot of battery. Just got an s9plus. Went from an iPhone x, and I can see a big difference in battery life. If curse, the s9 can do allot of things the x can't do, but it is allot worse
when it first came out it does cost a lot. I'm Samsung user for a long time I know what I am talking about. Their battery sucks manLeaving on your GPS, especially indoors when it strains to fetch multiple satellites, will run down a battery, irregardless of the os. It also is unnecessary, and many consider it a privacy issue for apps, developed by individuals over the world, having constant location data to add to the rest that's gathered.
Leaving on wifi, which is constantly searching at times if you are out and about, and so configured is foolish, as well as an unnecessary large drain on the battery.
The 9plus cost 480 usd last month, new at tmobile, not overly expensive for the flagship phone.
It's not complicated. If you don't want short battery life, turn off the things that use a lot of power.
Apple phones are not exactly long lasting battery wise. But at least they'll slow down your phone for you to make you feel better.
If people would stop installing crappy apps, look at their phones all day long and learn to keep the calls on point, the battery would be sufficient for 2 days +
Mine lasts for 2-3 days with 2.5 hours call time.
These devices are more than just phones and people use them as more than phones.
I only get like 2 hours SOT and it will maybe last 10 hours on a single charge. I don't have any crazy apps or anything like that. I tried a factory reset. Something tells me Facebook is to blame.
