my s20 + drain battery like siao.. anyone can help?
CCSWE + Naptime + Shizuku&AppOps Rikka

to prevent contant pinging by apps, u can use private DNS like nextdns.io

Use dark/night mode all the time for all apps, choose darker wallpapers with pure black pixels

these may help abit.

either way, im still holding on to my old note8 until they release flagship with SD



feel abit sad for samsung, stupid decisions (exynos) now lead to poorer sales, and this in turn affect resale price (slashing of prices barely a month later after release) = even poorer sales

vicious cycle really.

$2000 flagship phone need so many user modifications for optimal battery life

idk are they doing this so we no choice upgrade yearly?
$1.5k at launch, zero update since October. Promised Android 10 in February, another promise broken. If its Note 9 now, maybe S20 will suffer the same fate few months later.

tbh lots of us knew whats was happening in the past few years. lot of warnings on exynos since s8 times.

i guess people who dont do their homework get shortchanged after spending the same dollars on a subpar model. cant really blame them though. as people mentioned, alot of the buyers are just ordinary people who expect samsung to give them "flagship" quality after paying this much.

now that they realise the problem, sammy wont be able to keep these people loyal to the brand.

now can only offer some help to get that little bit of improvement loh.

if you wish to go further, u can install brevent which free/stop background app from running.

also, restricting background usage for Android System in Apps can help prolong battery further.

note all this tips are kinda going deep so you might want to research abit before you start disabling stuff happily.

already using these apps on my note8, no issue. standby drain is excellent on a 2.5+ year old model (about 0.5~0.8% per h)

I do like Samsung as a brand, but I think the Samsung mobile division in Singapore specifically has gotten too complacent and treating Singapore consumers shabbily. Clearly seen from their business decisions to constantly give SG consumers the lower end Exynos processor (even HK and Taiwan are getting Snapdragon, why not us), and with the S20 launch giving us low storage options whilst still continuing to charge premium prices. Not to mention slower updates relative to others in the region.

Nobody wants to complain for complaining sake, but it does serve its purpose of getting more consumers to realise they are getting the short end of the stick. This hopefully will cause more to vote with their feet and hurting Samsung SG where it hurts - in their sales numbers. This will inevitably cause them to offer more competitive products and prices - benefiting us consumers in the long term. And that is a good thing.

You’re so humorous...

Aiyo, chill and Think about it,
HQ (Korea) & product issue mandate: the usual exynos for Sg once again.

What can marketing do?
Go tell people their chips are inferior? They will be gone before they even attempt

Marketing’s purpose is to market, sugarcoat, mindshare and help sell, no?

There’s a difference between marketing and lying straight through your teeth, no?

Moi ish not humorous, moi ish jin dulan so moi choose not to buy by voting with my wallet. This is the most direct answer to Samsung.

If I'm VJ, when he say the exynos enhancement, I think I'll laughed out damn hard. What kind of enhancement are you talking about? The Exynos 990 is at least 2 generations behind Snapdragon bro LOL

Finally Exynos surpass the level of Snapdragon 845. Oh wait.. That's two years backward.

I'd honestly really like to see this happen.

Like if all of us consumers can come together and not only boycott Samsung, but make it publicly known our distaste for their treatment towards Singaporeans.

Ads? Facebook comments?

I feel it has to be a targeted effort though.
It's like every past year it simply dies down and Samsung just tries to pull the same **** all over again.
