The phone consumes power faster when connected to a 5G network

Problem:

The battery drains more quickly (especially when watching online videos) when using a 5G network compared to a 4G network.

Cause:

  1. The phone's power consumption depends on the specific service and network environment. More battery power will be consumed when services with large data consumption (such as video streaming and gaming) are running, or when the network signal is weak.
  2. Compared with the 4G network, the 5G network provides faster network speeds per unit of time, indicating a larger power consumption.

Solution:

On your phone's settings screen, search for and touch 5G Power Saving mode, and turn on the 5G Power Saving mode switch to automatically switch between 4G and 5G networks to save battery.

For other methods of saving battery, refer to The phone's battery drains quickly and has a short standby time.
