I know it requires some time to adapt but it's absolutely useless. I have used my phone for 3 months with Adaptive Battery (AB) on and it got worse and worse over time. After 1 month my battery started to drain faster and after 3 months it was slowly draining my battery when i wasn't using my phone (about 1% battery lost every 20-30 minutes).


After a factory reset (which was 1 month ago) with AB off,my phone's battery lasts way longer. With AB on with 4-5 hours of screen usage my battery was at 25% already and now with AB off i get 6-7 hours of screen usage until it reaches 25% battery charge. Big improvement.

    What apps were consuming so much battery with adaptive battery on? Maybe you did not have the biggest users being optimized

    My apps were running normally and every app was optimized. I've been testing this for 3 months so they had enough time to be optimized.

    make sure you do a factory reset and backup your stuff and then keep AB off. My battery life has changed drastically after this.

    @Amy c

    Can you post a screen shot of your battery usage? Sounds like an app is causing issues. What is using the most battery ?

    Done a factory reset, disabled AB end tested.

    After 4 days without AB the battery lasts more or less 10/15% less than with AB enabled before factory reset.

    Now I enabled Ab anew and try for ome days.

    I will report what I find out

    Used my phone for some days,now I can confirm that my battery lasts between 10 and 15 % more if AB is enabled.

    Seeing that this is the purpose of AB I suppose you should have some kind of issue which prevent AB to works fine

    Well,i suppose it's different for others.

    I guess it depends on how you use your phone and which apps you're using.


    Thanks for your contribution.
