Also works if you ask “who is the real president of the United States currently”.

I can't trust anyone or any screenshot with a battery that low! Is it supposed to be something like "my phone is almost dead, but i had to get this one last screenshot out there ASAP!"

But seriously, who does that? Am I the odd one out? I never run that low and still play around with my phone. Got to save that last little bit for... Um... Emergencies I guess.

I do it all the time. Also, I just asked this to verify.... And I was shocked that it matched!!! If didn't say "true", the answer was Biden.

Smart phones suck their batteries like mad, especially if you're using it for a year plus. Even more so if you let it charge overnight.

I am at lower %s more often that high %s and I never go higher than 85% because I enjoy my bettery lasting longer

I put my charger on a timer switch at night, it charges for about a half hour when I plug it in, and another 45 or so minutes at about 4am. My phone is over 3 years old and the battery is still decent.

I work on lithium batteries. That 85% cycle life is no joke, at 100% depth of battery discharge (DOD) you get like 500-1k charge cycles before your battery starts to suck, at 85% it's closer to 3-5k cycles. At around 50% DOD, it's closer to 10k cycles.

It's part of the replace yearly plan they start people into so everyone is paying upwards of a 1000 dollars on a phone, then replacing it at the year mark and starting over. They then require the old phone back, give a less ot at 10% discount on your next bill, and start you over on payments on your next over priced pocket computer. They then swap out a battery, resell the phone as refurbished and make extra profit from most folks not understanding how smaet phones really work. I think I remember Apple being accused of purposely installing malware to drain batteries at an excessive rate to increase the speed of consumer renewal and replacement. Android is no better. Best advice I ever received, though time consuming is: Uninstall as much bloat ware as possible, disable anything that is tracking your location when the app isn't in use. Remove all non essential apps from your home and secondary pages. Surprisingly, widgets and just the app icons suck a lot of battery. Limit notifications, turn on the put to sleep function for any app not used within what ever time frame you choose. Default I think is 30 days usually. Turn on power save mode when you are going to bed and don't charge it through the night. Over charging is actually bad for Lithium ion batteries. Refrain from unplugging your phone to do something if possible if it is charging and not full. Lithium ion is a great battery system, but is prone to damage from partial charging and gaining memory just like Ni-cad. Charge it when it is down to roughly 15 percent bit not less than 10 percent if you can help it. If you press and hold the power saving button, it should bring up a menu that gives you other options. Even at 30 percent, in the maximum power save mode, you'll get an entire 24 hours or more out of it. At 70ish to 80 percent, if nothing changes, you'll get roughly 6 days. Charge it when it is off completely, so there isn't an app running in the background at the same time as well if you can. Look in your settings and see what programs run all the time. If you can shut down a few, it greatly extends battery life and you'll get a few years out of the same phone. Unless you're really into the newest and greatest gadget, buy one of the cheaper and less fancy devices. It's the difference between 10 dollar installments vs. 40+ dollar installments. Turn your graphics down unless you are really into gaming. 4k and 120Hz is all gimmick advertising. You can't see in 4k and anything past 60Hz your brain can't track anyway. Run an experiment, look at 720i and 1080p. I bet most will only notice a marginal difference unless you're playing some type of fast paced game. Hope it helps.

I picked up a oneplus 9 last year and it's inarguably the first smartphone I've ever had that I haven't felt like I need it on the charger constantly. I started with the original galaxy phone then got bored after galaxy 5. Switched to LG until they went belly up (loved LG phones BTW. Battery still sucked). Then last year is when I switched to oneplus. Holy shit what a difference. A lot of it has to do with their modified version of android, OxygenOS. Like you were saying, it takes care of a lot of the bloatware issues and constant tracking and such and gives you complete and transparent 100% control over what your phone is allowed to do. It also defaults to a very minimal resource usage so you don't actually have to change much of anything.

Charges from 0 to 100 in 30 minutes. Stays charged for more than two days if I only use it for phone calls. Superb battery.

Low battery means it's real,full battery is fake as hell.
