Samsung Galaxy S23 owners have been experiencing issues related to excessive battery drain lately.

As per the claims (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9), users are either not getting good battery backup on their devices or the battery level is draining faster than expected.

And this is undoubtedly quite frustrating and annoying for those using the S23 as their daily driver and have to charge it repeatedly.

This is also bad news for those who switched to the S23 series with the hope of longer battery life. Users claim that their new phones barely manage to last for a day with casual and non-intensive usage.

And surprisingly, this is happening even when using the energy-saving profile with the phone at low brightness. Also, the adaptive battery management option seems to be of no use.

In addition to this, people contend that the phone heats up quickly, even when the camera is turned on for a few minutes.

Got the phone on Aug3. I always close apps in the background, turn data and Bluetooth off when I dont need it. Use dark mode and have all setting enable from “good Guardians” app. Pretty bad screen on time ratio and also temps goes to high when I use the camera for 3 mins on raw.

Some have also noticed that the battery levels decline from 20 to 0 percent quickly. The problem becomes even worse when the battery level is between 5% and 0%.

A user claims that their S23 phone cannot even last longer than their Pixel 6. They add that they could easily make it through the entire day with around 15-25% battery life remaining on their old phone.

However, the battery levels on the new gadget drop to about 20% within ten hours.

Has anyone experienced low battery performance recently? it is happening with me and my friend we have an eu model and I think the battery is discharging fast now.

The issue seems to have popped up after a recent phone update and has been affecting people for the past few weeks. Understandably, those impacted have taken to Reddit to express their concerns and ask for a fix.

Luckily, we have come across some workarounds that might help solve your problem. Firstly, it is suggested that you disable the RAM Plus feature on your smartphone to improve battery life.
