With the cashback from quidco or tcb it is the same and better to buy from direct samsung no?
Anyone with an S20 or S20+ having serious battery drain?

Or they can't talk to anyone on loudspeaker unless they are 1m from the phone?

I can't use my S20+ for a whole day, it dies.

Yeah search 's20+ battery drain' and the forums have quite a few threads, especially from people that are experienced with managing their Android phones. Paying £900 and having to have it on power saver mode with nothing running is not what you expect.

I know I just think Samsung pricing this year is to much. If people don't buy them at full price, they will maybe reduce the pricing next year.
Careful guys: state-sponsored, anti-Samsung misinformation campaign in all internet forums. Take such negative opinions with pinch of salt, give more weight to expert reviews, though dark forces will try to influence those too. Most tech publications raving about S20 line in general, real buyers too. Launch price is another matter...

I think the battery in general is poor on Samsung phones. I've used an S8+ for just over two years now and since day one it has barely lasted a full day with light use. I don't even use it to take lots of photos or watching YouTube, it's just poor.

On a work day my phone is in a locker and not used or checked for hours at a time. Yet when I come back to it's lost around 15% battery sitting in power dave mode with mobile data turned off.

This is my first ever Samsung phone and it'll be the last. I had the Sony Xperia Z2 for over three years before it and the battery never let me down on that phone. I might just go back to Sony when the time comes.
Exynos

Samsung use their own processor over here instead of the usual Snapdragon used elsewhere - early tests show they aren’t as power efficient or as powerful as the normal processors used in other countries

Had a 10% battery drain over night in standby on a brand new S20, no apps installed and Google account login. Phone is connected to WiFi though
Yeah got the s20 plus and battery life is disappointing even on 60hz. Samsung make good phones but the exynos ruins the battery life, same issues with note 10 plus and s10 which I had and returned. Not sure if I'll keep this one yet.

2017 phone, obviously battery replacement needed by now. App management could be source of problem, or even hardware fault. Maybe you just bought a used phone with a knackered battery

My phone was brand new and factory sealed from Amazon. Plus I bought it at the start of 2018, so it's been just over two years since I started using it.

I couldn't care less what one review you highlighted said. I'm talking about my own experience with the brand and phone and it hasn't been great. I fail to see how a battery that hardly gets a work out can be knackered so quickly when I already mentioned my older phone had no such problems.

And battery tech really hasn't come that far in the past three years. They're getting bigger sure, but judging by recent comments on the latest flagship they're still as poor as ever.

There's a golden rule in smartphones: the older the phone, the worse battery life. Few exceptions, tech always moving forward

Reviews are important because reviewers are knowledgeable and normally impartial, it's their job to test phones, whereas you could be Mr Chu, from Beijing Central Propaganda Bureau

Ah, so in short, it's all a conspiracy to you and anyone with genuine problems is trying to rag on your favourite company. Gotcha.

As mentioned, I couldn't care less what reviewers have said when I'm describing my own PERSONAL experience with the product. Just like you don't want to believe a paying customer I'd rather not listen to reviewers or "influencers" who get these products for free to try and get a positive review.

Samsung not my fave company, but everyone agrees they produce some of best Android phones; I like Sony phones nearly as much (you won't find many of those).

Sorry about your experience, it's an unlikely one but coul be real. Like I said, you could have got a faulty phone, or there are apps/settings hobbling your battery.

There's a gap between an expert working for a well-known tech site and an 'influencer' ranting in social media, which is awash with all kinds of biased/false info, as you surely know

"On a work day my phone is in a locker and not used or checked for hours at a time."

It's likely your locker is acting as some sort of Faraday cage for the phone and it's causing the phone to keep hunting for a signal. When a phone hunts for a signal, this activates the radios and will cause extra power usage and therefore affect the life of your battery during the course of a day.

Try putting it on airplane mode when you have it in the locker. See if that improves things.

Appreciate the advice, but putting my phone in a locker doesn't affect the signal. I have the same issue at home but mentioned my work scenario as my phone is left untouched for a while.

Maybe I've just had back luck with my phone but as a first time buyer it hasn't left a positive impression. I don't really care much for a lot of the bells and whistles modern phones have so it's not like I'm overusing it or whatever.

I'm gonna stick with it until it gets to a point where I can't bear to use it anymore, which usually happens around the three to four year mark. My last phone didn't have have any battery issues but the camera wasn't the best and a lot of apps were slowing down. That's when I decide to upgrade, after a good few years to see a real difference in how phones have moved forward.
Hard to believe @SFP_NooDLe that it seems you didn't contact Samsung Support or indeed Amazon with such a serious problem, your phone would've been fixed/replaced or you got a refund. That's not the normal experience of someone with a 3,500 mAh battery, in an expensive, well-made and supported phone

I was going to do that, but after being informed my phone would be wiped, which is understandable, I didn't want to go through the hassle of transferring everything back on to it once it got returned back to me.

Still well over priced. Wait 6 months and get it half price. 🏻



S20 will be under £400 new in 6 months? Thanks for the tip!
Bought one to try direct from Samsung and I'm disappointed with the battery life too. The 120hz display eats the battery in combination with the Exynos. I've got 12 hours out of it today before it needed charging, with 5 hours SOT.
Think I'll be returning it and sit on my hands until the OP8 makes an appearance!
