Samsung has rolled out the One UI 5.1 update to all flagship Galaxy devices and some mid-range devices in numerous parts of the world. However, the update has caused battery drain and low power efficiency issues for some users.

The Samsung S22 and S21 were initially listed as the devices most impacted. However, as more people received the update, it became apparent that even Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Fold 3 customers are reporting the same problem.

Battery drain issue caused by One UI 5.1 update seems to be widespread

The One UI 5.1 upgrade from Samsung was eagerly awaited by many people worldwide. But the update doesn't seem to be living up to expectations, even though it adds new features to devices. Based on multiple user-generated feedback and complaints compiled by PiunikaWeb, consumers say that the battery life of their Galaxy Z Fold smartphone was almost completely ruined after installing the One UI 5.1 update. In addition, some users complained that the upgrade hampered the charging process or caused a quick drain.

Users of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Fold 3 are expressing their frustration with the battery depletion issue on Samsung's official community forum in addition to Reddit discussions. The enormous number of complaints suggests that the battery drain problem is pervasive.

However, other Samsung users are reporting the exact reverse. Their phone's battery life has improved with One UI 5.1, and the system software now offers a superior user experience.

Possible fixes for the battery life issues caused by the One UI 5.1 update might be included in the March 2023 firmware release. In the meantime, as a workaround, try emptying the Android cache. Besides that, consider updating all your apps to the most recent version so they can function properly and effectively with the new software. Having said that, we hope Samsung recognizes the issue and offers a patch as soon as possible. Nonetheless, we shall keep you updated.
