Steps To Improve battery life on Galaxy S8

Improve battery life on Galaxy S8 (Increase Screen On Time)

1. Reduce Screen Brightness

Having increased screen brightness also results in draining of your battery. I suggest you to always set your brightness to minimum 50-60%. Even in 50-60% of brightness, you can easily use your device for watching movies, playing games, etc. Even high brightness results in stain in your eyes and head. So, it is battery way to always set your brightness level below 60% as it good for you and for your Galaxy S8. If you don’t know how to change brightness level, simply go to, Settings > Display > Brightness and change the brightness level below 60% or you can also set it to auto, so the device will automatically decrease the brightness according to the battery level.

2. WiFi, LTE Bluetooth & GPS

If you aren’t using Wifi, LTE, Bluetooth & GPS, then turn them off, it also results in draining of your battery level. I saw in many people’s Android device that, these services are always On even they are n’t using it. It doesn’t only reduce your data pack but also drain your battery. If you keep on your WiFi every time, then many apps in the background will start updating itself without permission, which drains so many batteries from your device. I suggest you of these services like Wifi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth & GPS if you are not using it. Bluetooth being enabled isn’t a big issue, but whereas we’re here, disable it if you haven’t a need for it. You can disable these service from the notification bar.

3. Use Simple Wallpaper

Using Live wallpapers which are present on the device, also results in draining of your battery life. I suggest you minimize the use of this kind of live wallpaper, as these live wallpaper keep running on background and drains so much of your battery. I suggest you use any black or blue wallpapers as they are still and not consume much battery. You can also on use your photo as a wallpaper on your device. You can change wallpaper by going to Settings > Personal > Wallpaper > Gallery > and then set your required Galaxy S8 wallpaper.

4. Battery Saving Modes

The Galaxy S8 also has some battery saving modes we will use. In fact, there are 2 totally different choices. Under Settings > Battery you’ll notice “Power Saving Mode” and “Ultra Power Saving Mode”. These both do similar nonetheless totally different things and can prolong battery life for the tip of the day when you actually need it, or in cases of emergencies and more. I suggest you enable the power saving mode as it, itself reduce the screen brightness and also decrease the frame rate.
