How to Improve Battery Life on Samsung Galaxy S20 Series
Disable Power Hungry 120Hz Refresh Rate
The panels on he Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra are simply a delight. The fluidity of these panels is impressive. But the power-hungry 120Hz refresh rate increases the consumption of the Battery with up to 25%. The impact on the battery life is active all the time, even when you’re just scrolling on Facebook. Save some battery life by reducing the refresh rate to 60Hz. In order to do so, go to Settings, to Display, to Motion Smoothness, to Enable Standard refresh rate.
Enable Power Saving Mode
The Power Saving mode can help you keep your battery life high. By default, the phone is set to ‘Optimized,’ which offers a balanced performance. You can enable enable ‘Medium Power Saving’ mode in order to extend your battery life, but you will force your device to limit some of its functions. This mode will turn off the ‘Always On Display’ and will limit the CPU speed to 70%. It will also reduce the display brightness to 10%, and the resolution of the screen to 1080p.
Enable Maximum Power Saving Mode
This one can help you the most when it comes to the battery life of your phone. It basically blocks apps from using data or GPS in the background. It applies dark mode, and it also activates the simplified homescreen mode.
Enable the Adaptive Power Saving mode
This one allows your phone to decide which settings it should try in order to maximize the battery life. It analyzes your usage pattern to save battery life, without actually playing with the screen resolution.
Disable Always On Display on Samsung Galaxy S20
You should do that if you want to save battery life, even if it has a low impact on battery life. Go to Settings, to Lock screen, to disable Always On Display. You can also choose to enable Adaptive brightness or enable the dark mode.
Track Power Hungry Apps
You can see which app consumes your Battery the most. In order to see this, go to Settings, to Device Care, to Battery, to App power management, and enable the adaptive battery mode. Don’t forget to toggle on “Put unused apps to sleep.”
That will allow your Samsung Galaxy S20 device to disable apps that you have not used in a while. You should also know that you can customize the apps that you don’t want to run in the background. Just go to the “Sleeping apps” section. These apps will not be updated automatically, and you won’t get any notification from them anymore.
