How to increase Samsung S5 battery life

Many of us think that The Galaxy S5 doesn’t have an appropriate battery when comparing to its size. Its battery capacity is 2800 mAh, but it has to power the 2.5 GHz top of the line Snapdragon 801 processor and that gorgeous 5.1 inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen, not to mention the highly customized and feature filled TouchWiz. All of that take its toll on the battery life.

As we have test the average battery life of S5, we come to the conclusion that the battery only maintain one day. If you just can’t get enough, and want to stretch S5 for more than a day, follow these simple steps.
1.Turn off Wi-Fi when you’re out

If you don’t turn off Wi-Fi when you are out, your S5 will work in the background constantly looking for networks to connect and even connecting to public networks automatically which is not good for safety. The process takes up battery. So when you’re on the road and you don’t need to surf the Internet, just disable Wi-Fi before leaving.

2. Disable Bluetooth, 4G/3G/LTE, location, when not using
Bluetooth is a big silent battery killer,you need to turn it off immediately when you finish using it.
Secondly, it’s a good idea to dynamically turn 4g 3G or LTE on or off thus will cause your S5 to revert to a 2G GSM network, which is plenty reliable in terms of phone calls, and still allows for data transfer fast enough when surf the internet.
Finally, if you’re not actively using the phone for navigation, then turn the GPS off will prevent apps from using it. This good habit will save many battery of your S5.

3. Tweak the brightness, and disable the auto brightness

The Galaxy S5 is an impressive 22% brighter than its predecessor, the S4. So, adjusting display brightness whenever you’re concerned about battery life. We don’t just mean lower the brightness to the bottom, we just recommend you to lower to an appropriate level.
The S5 also has an auto brightness feature that will adjust the display brightness to the surrounding conditions. Although this is a valuable feature, but activating the phone’s sensors is likely to use additional energy. So, if you’re looking to save battery life then we advise you to alter brightness levels manually rather than using the automatic feature.

4. Avoid live wallpapers ,better use black wallpaper
A live wallpaper will always draw more power than a static one. We evaluate those usually account for 2 to 5% of the total battery on a phone, so if power saving is a priority for you, we suggest you to avoid live wallpapers.
We check the lockscreen more than a hundred times a day, and although it is only for a couple of seconds, they add up. S5 has a Super AMOLED screen which means that it doesn’t need to illuminate completely black pixels. So set a black background for your home screen and lock screen and you’ll be saving on precious pixel lighting battery power.

5. Use Samsung’s built-in power saving mode
Samsung has been thoughtful about the battery and has included two features that will make sure you’ll last for a couple of hours ,even days, on low battery condition.
Go to Power Saving menu from Settings, and once switched on it allows you to obstruct background app data, switch the phone display to grayscale, adjust screen brightness, switch off the backlight of keys, and lower the screen frame rate.
Though this mode will limit the phone’s performance and processing power, but,by making these adjustments you enable yourself to enhance the S5’s battery life to a satisfactory extent.

6. Use ultra power saving mode
This feature is what makes the Galaxy S5 particularly attractive. As the name suggests, enabling it turns the home screen to grayscale, limits the usable apps to very few, including Phone, Messages, Internet, Google+, Face book, Twitter, Chat ON, Clock, Calculator, Memo and Voice Recorder. This mode will disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and turns off mobile data when the screen is off. Samsung says phones will last for more than 3 days on standby even when it only had 27% battery.

We’ve almost all experienced the frustration of a dead phone battery at a crucial time. Whether you’re at work or on holiday, getting a low battery when you’re away from a charger is very depressed. As long as you take the above suggestions, you will fully enjoy using your smart phones particularly when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S5.
