so, i bought a new samsung m04 last week but after some uses, i noticed phone battery drains 1% in every 6/7 minutes. it happens only when i use it, but if i leave it untouched it doesn’t drain. i’m confused and don’t know what to do, i searched for some solutions on google and turned off auto sync, put chrome app (uses lots of battery) into deep sleep, lowered screen brightness but nothing seems to work. I don’t know if it’s normal for newly bought phones coz my mom’s phone battery (realme, using it since last year) is so good no matter how long she watches youtube videos, scrolls thru shopping apps, leave apps unclosed & keep phone data on (mom always forgets to turn it off). i’m thinking about turning off adaptive battery option but i’ll wait and see for some more days. what do you think guys?

Sounds normal?

If this was linear you’d have 10 hours of screen on time…

Curious what you're expecting. 700 minutes is 11.5 hours of use. Does your moms phone get better than that?

For my mom, the 1% phone battery lasts for 10-15 mins. I said 6-7 mins in my description, but now it's 2nd week and now 1% battery remaining timing has reduced to 4-5 mins. This happened after I charged my phone to 100% for second time. I think I'm probably developing a paranoia about this battery thing 😅.

Don't turn off adaptive battery. It's there to optimize battery usage.
