We are sorry to hear about your experience with the recent updates on your Samsung Galaxy S22+ having fast-draining battery issues. I feel and understand why you are worried for a device that you've take care so much and expect that it will perform better after an update. If my device is facing similar experience, I will be bothered too.
Battery consumption and lifespan varies depending on a number of factors, including the frequency of device use, the number of installed and running apps, operating system errors, and network connectivity. 5G networks may drain the battery faster, but Galaxy phones use advanced AI-based software to efficiently control battery consumption to suit your usage patterns.
Before you try out the below recommendations as to your solution, be sure to check if your device's software are updated with the latest version. Please check how to update your mobile device's software in the following order.
Step 1. Go to Settings > Software update.
Step 2. Tap on Download and install.
Step 3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
5G service may consume more battery.
Adjust Background usage limits.
The more unused apps there are running in the background, the more power your battery will use. Background usage limits can be set to reduce battery consumption. Follow the steps below.
Step 1. Open Settings, and then select Battery and device care.
Step 2. Tap Battery.
You can choose from the following settings:
- Put unused apps to sleep which will automatically put apps to sleep if they have not been used for a while.
- Sleeping apps allows you to choose the apps that won't run in the background. You can view your current sleeping apps as well.
- Deep sleeping apps will never run in the background and will only work when you open them.
- Never sleeping apps allows you to choose which apps will not automatically be set to sleeping mode.
Optimize individual apps.
You can optimize individual apps to use less battery. Follow the steps below.
Step 1. Open Settings, and then select Apps.
