Hi
I bought a G20, overall great phone, broke the screen after less than a week, fitted a new one myself. After about a month I am now losing around 1% of battery a minute during common use once it gets below about 20%, sometimes closet to 5% a minute once it gets low. all the reviews say the battery life is good. Are we unlucky, have something draining it or is something else going on?
Thanks.

Hi,

You should check the apps that are draining your battery. You may find them as a list directly in the battery settings.

Turn on battery optimisation and block the unnecessary apps that are running in the background to preserve battery life.

Make sure to turn off Bluetooth, GPS and cellular data if you're not using them. Keeping them turned on all the time can cause battery discharging.

Reduce screen brightness and enable auto-brightness. Turn off also sound and vibration for the keyboard.

Let me know if the battery life is better after performing these steps.

Good luck
