    I have a new purchased Jan 2019.
    As of 2 days the battery life has taken a massive dump. Down to 50% by 10am.
    Anyone else notice any recent changes to battery life?

    I'm thinking some app is taking all the juice after an update but I haven't figured out which one yet.

    S8 here, battery consumption has increased a bit since I bought the phone, but nothing out of the ordinary I wouldn't say.

    There's a built in app that tracks what apps are using for battery. check in the settings, device maintenance, then click on battery, and it should show the app power monitor at the bottom.

    dude doesn't even know how to check what apps are eating battery life and you want him to messing with his phone lol. He will probably end up bricking it.

    But, in case he wants to try

    I knew how to check on my old phone, hadn't found it in settings yet on this new to me one.
    Disconnected the Samsung email from my gmail account and battery life is back to normal.
    I think it was an update that pushed out on April 4th.

    Was it used? It can't be new, mine was new in April 2017. That's why the old owner got rid of it. Get a new battery for it from the carrier/samsung I have an S7 for work, it's only down to 80% by 5. My S6 drains like that, but it's battery is horrible.

    Pre-owned indeed. Bought it off amazon.
    Battery life is back to normal, it last me all day and then some, so not too worried about getting a new battery in it yet.
