Hi.

It has been a week since I got my new Samsung Galaxy, and I was pretty bothered by its battery. At 4500 mAh, my expectations are of course, high.

One night, before sleeping, I disabled my Wifi and Bluetooth to save power and surprisingly the next morning my battery drained 10% even without actually using my phone because I WAS ASLEEP.

So, I googled and learned that "POOR NETWORK SIGNAL CAN DRAIN OFF PHONE BATTERY, FASTER". Indeed, there is very poor signal at home.

I tried enabling Airplane Mode the other night to test and VOALA!!! it only drained 2%. Now, that's what I do and so far, it is consistently saving battery consumption.

Still, i'm monitoring my phone.

Same here. I always turn on Airplane mode whenever i get to sleep every night and the battery of my phone remains the same the next day. 😉

Or switch to 2G instead of enabling airplane mode, as important calls or messages wont push through.

Agree. You can also automate this with Bixby Routines.

Thank you for this. Still, there is poor signal at home. Most of my contacts just reach me via Facebook messenger and viber. Thank God there is WiFi. 🤣

have you tried turning on the power saving mode? if yes and the battery still drains fast, I'd suggest having it checked at a service center already. I knoe they replace the unit if they find any problems with the battery (factory defect) and if it's within a week since you purchased the phone.

Yup. So far, no major concerns.
