DETAILED INFO

Ways to improve the battery life of your device

Change your screen settings


Your screen drains your battery the most. To save your battery:
  • Lower the screen brightness
  • Choose auto-dim to adjust screen brightness
  • Reduce the display timeout period
  • Turn on Dark Mode
  • Tap the power key when you’re done
  • Select static wallpaper photos or designs

Turn off device services when not in use


Save your battery by turning off:
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS and location
  • Wi-Fi®
  • Mobile hotspot and tethering
  • Near-Field Communication (NFC)

Manage app use


Extend your battery life with these tips:
  • Change your notifications. Go to your app settings to turn off unnecessary notifications.
  • Fetch email less frequently. Set your device to check for new emails less often.
  • Set non-essential apps to only work when you use them. This will stop these apps from running in the background.
  • Delete unused apps and widgets. Shut down or remove apps and widgets you don’t use.
  • Enable power-saver mode. If your device offers them, take advantage of power-saving options to help when battery life is critical.
  • Disable auto-update apps. Apps often automatically download updates and install them. Turn auto-update off when you want to save battery power.
