Poor battery life for S10+

I have a S10+ and been using it since new for about 2 years. I have limited to 85% battery charging. I use it very lightly and at night time is under 20% battery. I have enabled moderate battery profile and turned-off GPS. My wife's iPhone 8 with 75% battery health seems to have more juice than mine and her GPS is always on.

Example I got up from bed this morning 2.5 hours ago with charging to 85%. Now it is 79% and I have not used it yet except on standby. This can't be normal?

A couple of things to try:

1. Boot into Safe Mode and see if the phone still drains like that: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e...port%2Fanswer%2FANS00062983%2F&token=Y1MYAaLs. If it doesn't drain as much, that would suggest that something you installed is contributing to the drain -- check your battery stats to see if any app is using an inordinate amount of power.

2. Install Accubattery from the Play Store and follow the instructions under the Battery Health section to get an assessment of how much your battery has deteriorated over its life (which requires you to run a couple of full charge cycles). If it's <85%, that can easily explain a noticeable drop in the battery's life.
