There is no denying that Galaxy S21 Ultra and Note 20 Ultra are Samsung’s high-end Android phone achievements to date. Record-breaking cameras, adaptive LTPO display, amazing battery life, S Pen support and fast charging are just a few of its defining features, but the phones are not flawless.
We’re not talking here about the huge size and weight of the S21 Ultra, but rather the Samsung camera software that seems to keep both the Ultra and Note awake when the phone is moving and shaking, that is, just walking.
Needless to say, these wake-up commands, which are never stopped, can drain the device’s battery fairly quickly, as the phone is always in alarm mode, even when not in use, but simply moved around. You can follow this thread to get the encoding information, but basically the OIS vibration damping system may be to blame:
What if you have a unit that dies in you, keeping the S20 Ultra, Note 20 Ultra, and S21 Ultra in your pocket and covering a serious mileage around the cityscape? Not much, really, because firstly, it’s not clear if the OIS system is the case (it may be because the rest of this and last year’s S-line gang doesn’t have this problem), and secondly, there may be something else to blame when these things go .
Samsung has been notified of the problem, and if they investigate the conclusion that the anti-shake stabilization system wakes up, which prevents the sensor from rattling movement
is behind this, it will definitely give a fix. We know them as people would otherwise complain that something is buzzing on their phone
, there is no victory in this war.
