Enable power-saving mode

Samsung’s power-saving modes can help extend your battery by limiting background data and reducing screen performance. Learn how to activate these settings and tailor them to your usage patterns for optimal battery preservation.

  1. Open Settings > Battery.
  2. Toggle on Power saving. You can also choose additional power-saving limits that will help you save battery, like limiting CPU speed to 70% and automatically decreasing brightness by 10%.

Manage your apps effectively

Some apps consume more power than others, even when not in use. Discover how to identify and manage these power-hungry apps by restricting their background activities and ensuring they’re not silently depleting your battery.

  1. Go to Settings > Apps.
  2. Select an app and tap Battery to see its usage details. You can then customize that app’s battery usage by choosing Unrestricted, Optimized or Restricted.

Optimize device settings

Tweaking other settings like vibrations, keyboard sounds, and location services can also help save battery. Follow these steps to make adjustments for a more power-efficient setup:

  • Turn off all options under Vibration Feedback in Settings > Sounds and vibration > System vibration.
  • Turn off system sounds (including keyboard and dial pad sounds) in Settings > Sounds and vibration > System sound.
  • Disable location services when not needed via Settings > Location.

Monitor the battery usage

Understanding your battery usage patterns is key to better management. Samsung provides built-in tools to monitor which apps and features are draining your battery the most, allowing you to make informed adjustments.

  1. Open Settings > Battery.
  2. Tap on View Details to see a breakdown of battery activity, including app battery usage.

Manage connectivity options

Turning off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS when not in use can prevent unnecessary battery drain.

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to access the Quick Settings panel.
  2. Tap the individual icons to disable Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Location when not actively using them.

Regularly update your device’s software

Software updates often include optimizations that improve battery life. To update your phone, go to Settings > Software update and select Download and install. If you don’t have that option, select Check for new update instead. Then follow the on-screen prompts to see if there is an update available.

Use the original charging accessories

Your Samsung® phone is meant to be used along with other Samsung (or Samsung-certified) accessories. Using non-original chargers can affect the battery’s health and overall lifespan. These chargers tend to be cheaper than Samsung-certified chargers, but they can cost your device more in the long run.

Consider your battery health

Over time, your battery will naturally degrade and need a replacement. We’ll help you understand when it’s time to consider a battery replacement and how to check your battery health so you have a good idea of where it stands.

Here’s how you can check your battery health on the Samsung app:

  1. Download the Samsung Members® app from the Google Play® Store.
  2. Tap Support.

Tap Phone diagnostics or View tests > Test all. The app will run tests to check the health of your device, top to bottom, including your battery’s health.

If you've tried these steps and still need a little help, we're right around the corner. Schedule a repair at the nearest uBreakiFix® by Asurion store and our certified experts can get your device back up and running as soon as the same day.
