I am having an awful experience with the battery of s10 plus (exynos). I really regret buying this phone. When you spend a $1000 on a phone, you are supposed to get a phone that delivers in all the key aspects. Since the August update :
I) The phone barely completes 3.5 hours screen on time with 16 hours of total usage since last full charge.
II) Extremely poor standby drain - at night if I leave the phone at 100% charge, after a 8 hours sleep I end up with 85% to 90% charge.
III) I have visited the service center, they say everything is fine. They use the Samsung interactive app to detect problems & doesn't even go into details. I don't even know how accurate the app is. 

I d request if anyone has found a fix for this issue. 

note - I'm not a gamer or a social media freak. The only social media /messaging app which I use is Whatsapp & Instagram.

i use maximum power saving mode when i go to sleep. It somewhat helps in standby battery drain.

I have been using bixby routine to turn off wifi, mobile data, Bluetooth, sync, GPS, from 1 am to 8 am. Still 10%-15% battery drain is there

S10 generally drains fast between 100 and 90 and stabilizes after that. I normally go into flight mode at night and keep only wifi on. When I want to sleep I turn that off too. I always noticed a drop of 2 % between then and the time I wake up next morning which will be usually 6 to 8 hrs later. This appeared consistent other mobiles I used. More over I don't use any social apps. I heard many times that Facebook and co (whatsapp, Instagram included) are very power hungry and are usual culprits

do you really feel that you should put in so much effort after buying an $1000 phone? these should be optimized. My one plus 6t & ipad is far ahead is all these aspects. What's the point of software optimization from Samsung's end then?

Oh no I don't do this for the sake of battery life or S10... just wanted to share my experience. I agree on the optimization part but I was a 6t user before switching to s10 and my results were not too different. Ofcourse 6t always had higher sot but that's a minimal android version compared to heavily customized One UI.
