Try no root firewall (made by grey shirts) its in the google play store and block internet access to apps that don't need it and see if that fixes it

I'm experiencing this as well with my note 9 and I experienced it with my note 8 too... With my note 8 I got a little relief by turning off background data on whatever app's I could.

Owned pretty much every Galaxy S phone starting with S3 and just about a month ago i switched to Note9. The battery life in general has truly reached a low point with S6, with my scenario of usage i often had to charge it twice in one day but judging by responses online that is just how that turd was. And only two phones managed to get me through the whole day on a single charge: S7 Edge and currently Note9, which is why i am completely in love with it. However, the S9 i owned just prior to Note9 had one glaring issue with the battery: it dropped really fast and hard while having a phone with me outside in temperatures below 0 Celcius. Like i could go out for 20 minutes with around 40 to 50 % of battery left and return with a dead phone, which does not turn on even after rewarming. My friend, who uses midrange Samsung phones also experiences this same issue with his A5 (2017) occasionally. Something fishy is definitely going on with batteries inside their phones. I were and am using Exynos variants i might add and a lot of people here are attributing bad battery life on Samsung phones to that SoC

Samsung overcharges the batterys
the end Voltage is way to high which accelerates the batterydegradation. Samsung charges to 4.37V when 4.2 is the maximum healthy battery voltage

Your problem is that you are not using the LG V30/V40.

I had a smiliar problem on my Galaxy S8. I sold the S8 and bought myself the S9+ because of the bigger battery. But I was also disappointed. I'm getting an sot of 2 to 3 hours per day. But the batters is draining very fast when i'm not using my phone. After using it for 5 minutes, my battery percentage drops from 100 to 95%. The standby time of the S9+ is a real disappointment. I already resetted the phone twice, deleted everything but it didn't got better. (I did the same rhing on my S8. I resetted the phone, replaced the battery. But without any results). I really hope Samsung will fix this problem. Because the battery is laughable

-Check your battery health to see what it’s total capacity is at.
-Back up your phone
-Open your phone up to see if your battery is connected properly
-remove cache and junk files that slow down your mobile.

If non of that works, run your battery down to zero% and leave it for 20 minutes in a room temperature environment then charge with the charger out of the box, not! A faster charger just the general out of the box charger and charge to 100% without going on the phone while charging

And if that fails

Use your phone on lower power mode 24/7 or replace the mobile phone you currently have.

My most immediate guess is that they're trying to cram too strong of a processor in it. Maybe its that processors and computing power is advancing faster than battery architecture and power storage.

You know, my MTK tab can lay for few weeks on single charge. I guess you need to see cpu load. Maybe they screwed cpu idle mode.
