One more update
This a 2 Day battery beast with 7.5 or more SOT I'm at 19% with another 8 hours left to go but will charge it when it gets 15%
Big improvement from Samsung on battery department, I haven't seen this since my Pixel 5 which was less spec and screen Screenshot_20230219_231617_Device%20care.jpg

Can Definitely say that the Battery life on the S23 Ultra is way better than the S22 Ultra, Definitely big improvement. Over 8hrs SOT at 33% , plus over 1 day without charging it.

IDK ... I just never seem to get good battery on Sammy devices. But then again I tend to go all out with max settings and a bunch of Good Lock modules. Running it like a Ferrari

This is today's results, kinda ... not sure why the home launcher is so thirsty. Hoping a reboot will straighten it out as yesterday I had much better results.

Using live wallpaper or lot of widgets on home screen refreshing?

No live wallpaper and only 4 widgets ... thinking its got to be some kind of fluke as yesterday it was not like this.

I do this all the time with Samsung phones, I get all nerded out and go buck-wild with all their settings, features, and add-ons. Then, inevitably, do a factory reset after a while; reel in my nerdiness and try to prioritize the features and add-ons I need over the ones that are fun and cool.

It's a pretty "painful" process and you'd think I'd learn, but I do it every time LOL

Can always reset the home launcher clear its data then force stop but you have to set it up again

I don't have any screen shots of what my SOT time is, however, I'm vacationing in Costa Rico Andi am getting phenomenal battery life with basically no 5g and just 4g or even 3g and wifi when I'm in an Airbnb. i can only imagine how it will be when I get back to New York.

Much better results today ... off the charger around 5AM and now heading to bed around 9:30ish with 46% left. I can live with that

Outstanding battery life, Definitely is a huge difference from the S22 Ultra.

So this is how the S23 performed for me while on vacation. This is from 2/22. This is with a T-Mobile sim on Claro network with data roaming from 3g to 4g and some in door wifi.

This phone is ridiculous.

Over the years, my Note/S-Ultra phones have consistently given me an extrapolated 5-6 hours of SoT per charge, easily lasting for a day of normal use and recharging overnight. That's without gaming but with essentially all features enabled, no power-saving tricks or compromise settings.

The S23 Ultra is the first to significantly deviate from that pattern. Now, I'm getting 7+ hours of screen time under the same conditions. That's a substantial increase.

My note 9 gave the best battery life until s23u
And my Pixel 5 gave 2 days with 5-7 sot which the s23u crushed, have to say my iphone 14 pro max is up there but don't use it much so can't gauge it exactly.
