    Just watched but I am not clear are you say keep refresh rate at 60 or use adaptive as it will go lower when not needed and save more?

    Also the fast charging super fast charging why would you leave them all on I set super fast on and fast off

    Please add more clarification

    Also I had to turn off device manager notification as it kept alerting on high battery usage even after adding to never go to sleep how can you set to ignore certain apps for high battery usage?

    I posted the video to give some ideas to some to help with battery life. I removed Beautiful Widgets it was killing my battery. I am in dark mode. My battery is doing better. I am up to 8 hrs now in a full charge. Once the phone learns your habits it usually gives better battery life. At least with my Note 9 I got better battery after a week.

    I am not using any beautiful widgets that I am aware of
    For a phone with twice the battery of my moto z2 force the battery length is about the same. The note seems to be a battery hog and device health constantly says background apps using too much battery and once said using too much cpu. The optimizer need to optimize better. Hopefully they can patch it as battery length I am not impressed with so far for such a huge battery.

    Everyday the phone says apps are using too much cause and gives me a pop up cancel or restart phone I click cancel and the phone keeps working. Device care needs to be fixed as its optimization detection or optimization power is a bit buggy in my opinion. Anyone know how to fix. I am unhappy with the battery being twice as big as my old phone and lasting the same as a battery half its size the note is a battery hog

    Lining the ultra up on a wireless charger with a case on it it fails charging more often then not this is worrisome is the the qi2 fields not strong enough to make it constantly through a case

    I'm using an Otterbox case which is pretty heavy duty and have no problems with wireless charging. Using the sanitizer/ wireless combo charged I got as a gift from Samsung. Have noticd the Note 20 Ultras gets a lot warmer on a wireless charger than the included 25 watt charger.

    How do I get the Samsung wireless charger sanitizer combo. That sounds like you put it in a box. Never liked cases much as I think the make phones hotter in general less ways for heat to escape

    It was one of the gifts I got from Samsung along with the Note 20 Ultra, can't find it on the Samsung site now but here's a link for the same exact item at the same price Samsung was selling for. As I said it makes the phone get a lot warmer than with the 25 watt external charger.

    Interesting I ha e been seeing more and more of the uv sterilizing products wonder if it works ornifnits a gimmick.pretty neat though. If it could also clean smudges off your phone now we'd be talking lol

    I use the Samsung Rugged Protective Case with my Note 20 Ultra. It's a heavy duty case, but I have had no problems with wireless charging while using it. Something to be said about the Samsung branded cases is that they have likely ensured it will work properly with the phone it is designed for. That is generally, but not always the case with 3rd party cases. Some just don't work well and have to positioned just right. If not they won't charge, will partially charge or you get that "slow charge detected" error.

    As for the UV Phone sanitizers. They aren't a gimmick, at least not the branded ones which have gone through some testing. But you have to read the fine print. They do kill germs and have been shown to kill some viruses. But I don't think any have been proven yet to kill Covid-19. I believe many of the claims are based on a track record of killing similar viruses, so in theory it should be effective.

    Other members may have more details on that than me, I have only done some early research prior to purchasing a Phone Soap Pro. I was interested in it's ability to kill Influenza A H1N1(Flu) and Rhinovirus (Cold) as anything else.
