Samsung devices are not really known for their battery lives. Smartphones, such as Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 9 take a lot of time to charge up. Another issue is that they also tend to use up the battery quite soon. This is all the more true if you have enabled other features of the phone. However, if you know some tricks, you can save battery and extend its life.
#1 Night Mode
A good thing to do would be to enable the Night Mode. Since the Galaxy S10 series uses Super AMOLED displays, you can easily use it to achieve longer battery life. One excellent way would be to enable the system-wide dark mode. Since the Light Mode uses more pixels, it uses up more battery. Besides this, you can also choose to get AMOLED wallpaper apps that help you save battery while looking ultra-cool.
#2 Disable Always On Display
While the Always On Display is a cool option to enable, keep in mind that it can easily suck battery. It is a good idea to switch it off on your S10/S10 Plus so that you can make your phone last longer. If you don’t want to remember to do it every time, how about setting a schedule for it? You can set it to enable and disable itself.
#3 Adaptive Battery
The adaptive battery is a relatively new feature is seen in the Galaxy S10 series. This element makes use of machine language to understand your phone habits and usage. Based on the same, it will disable apps that you don’t really require and the apps that use up a lot of battery. One thing to note here is that the process does not start immediately. It takes some time to understand your usage and then decides to disable the apps. The phone will categorize the app into different options, such as Active, Frequent, Working Set, Rare, and Never.
#4 Power Modes
One of the best things you can do is to enable the power mode on your phone. On the Galaxy S10 device, there are three modes – High performance, Medium power saving, and Maximum Power Saving. In most cases, you can choose the one that suits you so that you are able to get the best out of it.
#5 Optimize Settings
You may be pleased to know that Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus come with battery optimization features that enable automatically when you are not using the device. It is designed to reduce the screen brightness, media volume, and the screen timeout automatically. You can make changes on the Settings menu by visiting the Optimize Settings tab. Here, you can also choose if you want to put unused apps to sleep.
#6 Reduce Screen Timeout
You can also check out the screen timeout settings. If you generally don’t bother locking the phone, enabling this feature could help you save energy. Usually, a 30-second screen-on time is considered ideal.
