Monitor Battery Usage
View the estimated battery life based on your usage over the last 7 days, and closely monitor how much battery your apps are eating up.
Shorten your phone’s screen timeout to decrease battery consumption.
Screen timeout is set to 30 seconds by default.
Block Accidental Touches
If your phone keeps on turning on when inside your pocket or bag, enable Block accidental touches to prevent it from happening again.
Using high brightness levels for an extended period of time may cause eye strain and increase battery consumption.
Turn on Auto brightness to increase and preserve the battery life.
Always On Display
Always On Display can be convenient when you want to quickly check the time or date. However, it can obviously consume more battery life because it remains on your screen all the time. Learn how to disable Always On Display to extend the battery life.
