How can I optimise and extend the battery life on my Samsung Galaxy smartphone?

Last Update Date : Mar 25. 2018

The issue of battery drain has become one of the most prevalent issues for mobile users; this is mostly compounded by the fact that we're spending more time on our mobile devices. When your smartphone or tablet is your go-to means of accessing the internet and/or data, or it's your source of connection/entertainment, that battery life becomes incredibly important.


When an Android phone or tablet’s battery gets low faster than it should, a downloaded app could be using too much battery. 

Why the device Battery drains quickly?

Use the following ways to troubleshoot battery drainage issue.

1 Check whether Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC/S Beam, Tethering and Portable Hotspot is turned on when not in use.
2 Check whether the Brightness of the device is set to minimum or not.
3 Smart Features in Flagship phones like Motion UI, Smart Stay, Air Gestures, Screen Mirroring etc will drain battery considerably.
4 Check Power Saving Mode (If available)
5 Auto Sync of E-mails, App data etc will drain battery.
6 Multiple Applications running in back ground will drain battery power.
7 Check the Network Mode as 4G Network mode will drain more battery compared to 2G/2.5G/3G mode.
8 Network Fluctuation also drains battery.
9 Minimizing the back-light time would save battery.
10 Follow the standard charging procedure (i.e. charge a fully discharge battery in Switch-off mode up to 150 mins.)
11 Periodic Software Update through FOTA or Smart Switch is intended to improve the battery life as well.
