Signal uses up to 25% of my battery during the day

Hi guys,

I’ve reinstalled /e/ on my phone and find that since Signal and Telegram are no longer system apps, Signal suddenly uses a lot of battery. Always between 20 and 25% in total even on days when I don’t use it that much.

I use signal as my SMS client. Has anyone got a solution to that?

Thank you

It’s not really a solution, but I uninstalled Signal almost immediately.

I’m not sure if this is really a solution, but I installed Accubattery to track my battery usage and it shows Signal as a pretty normal amount, very different from the high amount that my Android system reports. :man_shrugging:

I’ve never had a battery drain issue with signal on Mi8

Same issue for me. Solution : use an app for SMS, ans signal only on wifi mode.
