A few weeks ago Samsung unveiled its latest flagship device at the Galaxy Unpacked event. The S22 series consists of his three phones Samsung Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra.

That said, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is the largest and most expensive phone in the series.It has the biggest battery capacity and also features a built-in S-Pen.

You can see how fast the battery drains in the image below.


Below are reports from Galaxy S22 Ultra owners complaining about battery drain.

Tbh, really poor. Once the battery is completely depleted, he has to recharge twice a day. If you don’t go below 30-40 percent (because it takes a long time to charge and you may want to stay on the charger for a short period of time), you’ll have to top multiple times a day. . It takes about 3-4 hours to go from 100 to 0 with relatively light or moderate use. Even with battery saving mode on, Wi-Fi all day, and 60hz, I couldn’t get more than 4. Everything else about the phone is great.. but the battery life is disappointing and when the battery degrades in a few years it will probably become unusable.

Battery life sucks compared to my last phone which I used heavily for 2 years. I have only had the s22 ultra for his 2 days and even with battery saver on it still drains much faster than my previous phone. There’s no reason for the battery to drain so quickly, especially when the screen is off. Location, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. are all turned off, but when I wake up in the morning, at least 30% is charged overnight. Lost. My old phone would lose 5% at most.

Since the phone is relatively new, it’s still unclear if the battery drain is related to a hardware or software issue. .
