Samsung Galaxy S10 - Android 10 / One UI 2 Update

I have the O2 firmware version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and I've noticed this morning that the update has pushed through to my phone and it is waiting for me to install it.

This phone is already **** for battery life, let's be honest lol

So I wanna know if anyone else has had this update installed on there Galaxy S10 (not the S10+) device and if so did it make your battery drain more?
There are lots of cool additions to Android 10 and One UI but I'd rather stay on Android 9 if there are battery performance issues. That's the deal breaker for me.

I did read that a lot of people who were beta testing Android 10 and One UI had issues with increased battery drain, this is why I'm asking if the official release is improved on that.

Let me know your thoughts guys!

Thanks in advance! Smiley Happy

As it's literally just been released it may be too early to tell.

Battery life is always a lot worse for a few days after a major upgrade as all the files on the phone have to reindex and depending on settings, pull files from cloud servers etc.

My preferred method is always fully backup the phone then factory reset and update, followed by another factory reset before installing my backup.

@MI5 I hate factory resetting and setting up new phones as well for the simple reason that I have so many custom tones and stuff for my apps, it's a pain setting it all up again. I also use the Secure Folder partition for work and I always struggle like hell to back that up without having to start all over again. I just hate doing it so I never do unless I absolutely have to lol

I wouldn't bother updating then mate. 

9 to 10 is too big of a change to get away without having to factory reset.
