Galaxy S10+ battery drain

Hi, I am experiencing battery issue on my S10 plus. Battery drains from 100% to 70% within 3 hours even tho I'm not using my phone. My old s8plus stayed on 60% after 8hrs and bigger usage of the phone. I have completely same settings. Anyone knows how to fix it?

@Marbyk  it’s perfectly normal as the device/battery is in setting up stage.   How long have you had it ?

Since release. At first I thought it's in setting stage but it's been 11 days already and I did switch off GPS, WiFi, and screen wake up when you lift the phone but nothing worked. I did read a lot of great comments about its battery and I think 11 days was enough to set it up

Is it in your pocket by any chance with the screen facing your leg?

 

It may be trying to unlock the device with the fingerprint reader by touching your leg.

 

This is an issue with this device which Samsung say will fix in a future update.

Re: Galaxy S10+ battery drain

I can confirm that it was issue when the phone tried to unlock while it was facing my leg. Normally I carry 2 phones so I did keep my company phone in front of 10plus and battery last longer but unfortunately not as good as my old s8plus 😕

@Tariqca15   Did you read what was the cause for @Marbyk  as it appears you didn’t.  Nothing todo with the network the device was on.

Yes but I have a s10 plus battery was draining even though the display was off 

And its obvious it's the network eating battery over LTE
