Display needs too much battery, why?

My battery is drained most by the display, see attachment. But I don't know why. I don't have AOT active and the Mhz of the display is set to "Auto". The brightness is also set to "auto".

What else can I do so that the display does not use the most battery?


  • 5.9% is Ok. Don't understand why you don't like it. It will be hunger little less if you switch to fixed 60Hz.

    Of course it consumes a lot of battery but it's physics...

  • Agree, 60Hz and reduced brighness.

  • The numbers look ok. You've been running for 15 hours including 1.5 hours of screen-on time.

    Lowering to 60Hz is kinda waste on such a phone. I would even increase it to 90Hz or 120Hz. I don't like the Auto mode because it translates to 60Hz on a lot of apps including Spotify, Tidal, Instagram, and Samsung Internet. Only a few apps like Facebook, YT Music, Chrome and the home screen is running on 90Hz under Auto mode.
