And if you’re one of the privileged individuals who got the hottest Samsung Galaxy S5, congratulations! Of course, you can do almost anything you wanted – surf the internet at a lightning speed, take breathtaking photos, play HD videos and games, and even use it outdoor without worries for it is dust-proof and water-proof. But the bad news is that, just like any other Smartphones, it doesn’t come with a whopping battery to get you going as long as you want. Yes, it is powered by a decent 2,800mAH battery, but it's a powerful mobile monster too, that could use all the juices in just a matter of hours.
Fortunately, there are few things that you can do to extend your fun and bond with your precious Samsung Galaxy S5. Feel free to follow these tips and save the battery life of your Samsung Galaxy S5:
Turn down the display brightness
A bright display will drain your battery quickly because its huge display pushes millions of pixels. Take time to manually adjust the brightness of your screen instead of setting it in auto mode. Auto mode will automatically adjust your screen’s brightness according to your condition through its sensors. This means that your Samsung Galaxy S5 uses the sensors all the time, it will drain your battery juice rapidly. It may even leave your display at a level that is too bright for your environment. You may set your display brightness that is acceptable for your eyes.
Turn off Wi-Fi and cellular function when not in use
If it is on, it is in constant search for Wi-Fi networks, its 3G function can also murder the battery life. If you have a bad connection too, get off it and you’ll save the juices for your battery.
Limit your display timeout as short as possible
The moment you stop touching your phone’s screen, the timer will start, telling the phone when to turn off the display. The longer it stays on, especially if you’re not using it, the more battery juice it uses. Try setting it at 15 seconds and you’ll be surprised at how much it saves on your battery life.
Use smartwatch for notifications
Of course, you will spend extra dollars, but a smartwatch can lengthen the life of your battery because you don’t have to peek at your phone’s display all the time.
Get your phone in Ultra-power saving mode
This enables you to get the most out of your battery by limiting the apps that you can use like Phone, Messages and Internet with additional apps like Calculator, ChatOn, clock, Facebook, and Voice Recorder.
Kill background apps that are not in use
Apps running in the background can steal your battery juice, so make sure that you kill them if you’re done with them. However, if there are apps stuck in the background, you can try rebooting your phone, this should kill all those ghosts in the machine.
Enjoy your new Samsung Galaxy S5 longer by saving your battery juice!
