Is Samsung trying to ruin our batteries to force us to buy the new phone? They should be sued in small claims if that's the case.

I did every single thing you can think of. I factory reset twice, once using the settings and used it for a week, the drain was still there.

I factory reset again using odin and still the battery drain was there.

The issue is simply caused by Samsung messing up the update in oneui 6.1.

Please just let the developers know that their oneui 6.1 **bleep** and may get sued for planned obsolescence.

The drain started literally after the latest oneui 6.1 update so it's 100% not the phone nor the settings I have.
