The performance of your battery depends on a wide variety of factors such as usage patterns, battery capacity, age of the battery, and more. If you spend a lot of time using your phone with several apps running in the background, the battery will be consumed much quicker. I own a Galaxy S24 Ultra and its 5000mAh battery barely lasts a single day at moderate usage but using battery saving tips, I can make my battery last longer.

To help preserve the battery, I will tell you the twelve best battery saving tips for Samsung handsets running One UI 6.1 –

  • First, you should start by swiping down from the Notifications bar for opening the Quick Settings panel

#6. Debloat your smartphone (Advance users)

Samsung smartphones come with several bloatware apps preinstalled out of the box. While a few of them are essential to the Android ecosystem, many of them are useless.

You can easily uninstall system apps on your Samsung handset through ADB, ADB AppControl, and Universal Android Debloater and save both storage space and battery. You can follow our detailed guide here: Full List of Samsung Bloatware Safe to Remove (Pre-installed Apps)
