Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

Battery Monitor

Your device has an application that lets you see which applications and features use the most battery power. To view the Battery application, from the Home screen, touch Apps 1 > Settings 1 > Battery1 .

Touch an application or feature in the list to view additional information and access its settings.

NOTE: When you view additional information for certain applications, you can touch Force stop to close the application.

Reduce Battery Consumption

Your device provides options that help you conserve battery power. By customizing these options and turning off features in the background, you can use your device longer between charges:

• Turn off the Bluetooth® feature.

• Turn off Wi-Fi®.

• Turn off the GPS service.

• Turn off the mobile data connection.

• Turn off auto-syncing of accounts.

• Turn off Smart stay and Smart Pause™.

• Discontinue use of Live wallpapers.

• Decrease the backlight time (timeout settings).

• Decrease the brightness of the display, or use Automatic brightness.

Best Practices for Battery Charging

The following guidelines can help you charge your battery properly and safely:

• Verify that you are using the supplied Samsung USB/charging cable and not third-party accessories.

• Ensure the USB/charging cable is connected securely and is not being blocked by a cover or case.

• Make sure a battery or charging indicator appears on the device's display when the USB/charging cable is plugged in.

• Charge using a wall outlet, not a computer, for best results.

• Disconnect the device from the USB/charging cable when the battery is fully charged.

Your device comes with a power-saving application that can assist in reduced battery usage. From the Home screen, touch Apps 1 > Settings 1 > Power saving 1 . Choose between Power saving mode and Ultra power saving mode.
