Samsung Galaxy S8 is now available in U.S and U.K stores and all pre-ordered smartphones have already delivered. Recently I’ve covered a story about how amazingly powerful SAMSUNG Galaxy S8 hardware features and it seems almost indestructible when tested. The one thing which will be a big headache for every smartphone user is the battery life. Even though galaxy S8 has a pretty powerful battery and it can provide good timing but, there are still some ways you can squeeze every last bit from it.
Disable Always ON Display (AOD)feature
The first tip for all new Samsung Galaxy s8 users is to disable the AOD feature from their smartphones. You can do it in just few simple steps and it will not even take a minute of your time. You just need to open Settings > Select Lock screen and security > and finally turn off Always On Display button. This option will dramatically increases the life of your Galaxy S8 battery and you will notice a significant rise in battery’s life. One thing that’ll change in your smartphone is it will remain OFF while it’s locked. You need to manually turn ON the screen by pressing the Home Button. It’s a vibrating sensor inside the screen just like iPhone 7 – It’ll give a home button feel whenever you press it.
Adjust the screen resolution
The Galaxy S8 screen resolution is automatically set at Full High-Definition mode. If you will decrease the screen resolution then it will definitely improves the battery life of your Galaxy S8. After all we don’t need the Full high-definition screen when sending the messages or scrolling down on Facebook. You can easily change the screen resolution again to default; when watching YouTube videos, playing Games and enjoy every single pixel of your Galaxy s8 screen.
Set 15 seconds screen timeout
Select the 15 seconds screen timeout limit because it’s also very helpful in increasing the battery life. When you buy your new Galaxy s8 model its timing will be 15 seconds so, don’t have to do anything. You can counter check the option by opening Settings then > Select Display > Choose Screen timeout.
Put unwanted applications to Sleep
This is one of the most important options of all that will help in stretching your Galaxy S8 battery life. If you put your unnecessary apps like CNN News, Messenger, Tinder, Skype etc,.. on sleep – Then you won’t receive notifications from time-to-time. Samsung has now introduced a new feature which will allow you to put the app to sleep manually. You just have to choose that; which apps for you are insignificant. Once shortlisted it is very simple to put an app on Sleep and increase your Galaxy S8 battery life.
Once Apps are shortlisted keep holding the app icon for few seconds. A pop up of settings will show up on your screen which shows the Sleep option. Just select the sleep and press OK.
