After the last update a couple of weeks ago, my S22 Ultra battery is being drained by "Contacts Backing Up". It's the highest consuming thing as per my battery stats. I looked on all the forums but no solution.

I tried clearing caches, disabling contact sync for my Google accounts, but it's still there.

Is someone facing the same issue?

Hello. Kindly try to visit Samsung members application, then get help, and go to diagnostic, to check the battery status.

Then try to go to Settings-Device care-Click Optimize now-Then tap on the three dots-Automation-Auto optimize daily.

After that try to do a soft reset for the device as well, by press and hold the Power button and the Volume down button simultaneously for more than 7 seconds to restart it. It will not delete any data from the device. And Remove the apps that are running in the background.

Also, it may be Google account contacts syncing. You can turn it off , go to settings > accounts and backup > manage accounts > select the Google account > sync account > toggle off the contacts sync.
