It is recommended that you try out each of the below-mentioned workarounds and then see which one spells out success. So with that in mind, let’s get started.

FIX 1: Disable RAM Plus

This feature is nothing more than a gimmick, at least for the higher-end devices. For the unaware, using RAM Plus, you could allocate how much internal storage to be used as RAM. Well, at least on paper, it should boast the app performance speed, and it might actually do for some lower-end phones, but most of today’s devices don’t even require this feature as we have more than sufficient amount of RAM.

Moroever, having a service constantly running in the background will only lead to battery drain drain and overheating. For some reason though, Samsung believes that it’s best to enable this feature across all its devices. However, let’s put an end to that practice by disabling it right away. Here’s how it could be done:

  1. Head over to Settings > Battery and Device Care> Memory.
  2. Then turn off the RAM Plus using the toggle at the top right.
  3. Now wait for a day or two and then check out the results.Galaxy S23 Battery Drain

FIX 2: Use Light Performance Mode

This mode gives a higher preference to battery life and cooling efficiency by slightly lowering the device’s processing speed [which wouldn’t be even noticeable while carrying out your day-to-day activities]. As of now, it is recommended that you give it a try and then check if it works out in your favor.

FIX 3: Put Apps to Deep Sleep

If you aren’t frequently interacting with an app, then you could limit its background capabilities by putting it in either a sleep or a deep sleep state. This in turn will help your device gain a few additional percentage of battery juice. Do note that if you choose Deep Sleep, then the app won’t run in the background, you’ll have to manually open it so that it gets synced with the recent changes,  Here’s how it could be done:
