Has anyone else had their S23 Ultra batteries made borderline useless since the last update
Ever since I installed the One UI 6.1 update, my S23U has had abysmal battery life.
Before the update I could use it regularly all day and still have around 20% left before going to bed.
But after the update, the battery is nearly dead after barely 6 hours of light use. And this is at work when my phone is in my pocket with the screen off the majority of the time, it barelt lasts until the end of the shift.

Nothing wrong with the battery life on my S23 Ultra One UI V6.1.

Here's over 2 days, from the 20th to the 21st

One day & 2 hours, 30 minutes roughly & 16 hours 41 minutes remaining.

Total screen on time over the period ~ 3.65 hours. So not a lot of SOT at this point, but still 16 hours 41 minutes of Battery remaining..

Turn off every ai feature or associated feature. The AI is useless if it tanks the battery.
Amazing that Samsungs expects people to pay for this. Ever since update 6.1, my unit battery life dropped by more than 50% and has not recovered to what it ised to be before the 6.1
update.

Hello guys my S23Ultra battery life was just terrible after the 6.1 update and the April security patch didn't improve it either.

I have seen people mentioning factory reset as a solution but I really don't want to do it cuz this backup restore process is a hassle for me.

After a lot of research I did find a work around:

I used the phone till the battery was fully drained and my device turned Off.

Don't put it for charge, let it remain off for about 4 to 4.5hrs (by this time the battery would lose the last tiny residual bit)

Then plug it on to your charger and charge it to 100% without turning it on. Even after reaching 100%, let it the charger connected for another 1 hr.

Switch the phone ON, and then disconnected the charger.

Start using the device as you would be using it.

Don't expect a change right away.

And don't let the phone go fully to 0% again in the next few days.

You should start seeing the change by the 4th or 5th day.

Leme know your results.
