After reading so much about the 'Monster Battery' of the Samsung Galaxy M31, after using it for a month I am v disappointed. Everything is nice except the battery life between charges. For a 6000 mah battery it goes down to 53% in 13 hrs of light WhatsApp & browsing. This is even worse than my previous phone after using for 19 months & which had a 5000 mah. When I took it out of the box it had only 57% battery life in it & the charger was full of dust. I don't play games on my phone & still this issue. Will try a factory reset & update here again. Looks like I may have landed a bad piece.

Guys please be careful of the Motorola phone with a pop up selfie camera. It could end up being a maintenance nightmare & result in a BIG hole in your pocket while trying to repair it. And their service is crap. I have used their phones like the Moto G & Moto X Play which were good at that time & never faced a problem so I was lucky of not having to trudge to the service center. But my friends were not so lucky & curse v bitterly of their experience ( I used to go with them to the service centers)

No issues with the battery here. The backup is quite decent.

Just FYI, using dual SIM both on Volte and 4g/4g+ will cause battery drain. If yours is Amoled screen, go for dark mode. I hope resetting solves your battery issue. Else service centre.

@Lamborghini I am using a single sim & using Dark mode
@Samuel Is 'Adaptive power saving' on by default? In my case 'Adaptive power saving' is off. When I put it on it went into 'Medium power saving' so I put it back to 'Optimised'. Have you done the security patch update (July). Its 569.44MM. I faintly remember that this option was on on my phone & I never touched it, was wondering if the latest update switched it off. I have turned it on again let me see if it goes into 'Medium power saving'.

On my mother's phone both the sims are on 4G + VOLTE all the time.

@socrates I think I enabled this setting. Network coverage in your area will play an important role too. Try to take a screenshot of the screen on time if you can. If my mother charges her phone till around 90% in the morning around 8 AM, by the end of the day around 8-9 PM, it is at 48-50%. The usage involves YouTube, WhatsApp, games like Candy Crush etc. I couldn't find the SOT otherwise would share a screenshot.

My Jio signal is v strong. Thats was my first suspicion & checked with others in my house & neighbors & found that there was no deviation in signal strength. Its still in 'Optimised' mode even after a restart lets see what improvement I get. I also removed 'DailyHunt' app as I found it to be a BIG hog for data as it shows all pics.

Remove the bloatwares if you can using ADB tool. In my phone(Realme XT), even though I do not use Facebook, Facebook services was still present. I could not even uninstall it. Removed it using ADB, and did see an improvement in my battery.

All bloatware that could be uninstalled was done on day 1 & those that couldn't have been disabled. Facebook services I will disable today. 👍🏻
