How to increase battery life on the Samsung Galaxy S8 plus?

Tip 1: Disable the Always-On Display

It is convenient to leave your S8 plus always-on so that you can check messages or time when you dock it on the wireless charger or sit it on your desk. But it also drains the battery. So this is the most important step when you want to save the battery. You can wake the display by pressing the home button when you use it.

1. Open the Settings app.

2. Choose Lock screen and security

3. Tap off the Always On Display.

Tip 2: Lower screen resolution

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus has three display settings, allowing you to run the phone at either a WQHD+ (2960 x 1440), FHD+ (2220 x 1080) or HD+ (1480 x 730) resolution. The Higher resolution represents faster battery usage. Sincerely, FHD+ is enough for your daily use. You can switch it to WQHD+ mode when playing games or watching videos.

1. Slide down the Quick Setting panel.

2. Choose Performance mode

3. Change the Screen resolution to FHD+ or HD+.

2. Tap the small arrow next to the brightness slider.

3. Tap off the auto-adjust button.

Tip 4: Keep screen timeout low

Limiting how long your display stays on after you’ve last interacted with the device is another tried and true method of increasing battery life. The default screen timeout on S8 plus is set to 15 seconds. Leave it there or, if you must, go up to 30 seconds. Any longer than that and you’re wasting battery.

1. Open the Settings app.

2. Choose Display

3. Choose Screen timeout from 15 seconds to 10 minutes.

Tip 5: Put apps to sleep

Samsung added the option to manually put apps to sleep. When an app is “sleeping,” it won’t run in the background, and any push notifications to the app will be paused. The next time you open the app, it will wake up, with notifications and updates flowing once again. It will save the battery when apps are running in the background.

1. Long press on the icon of an app until a setting popup is shown.

2. Select Sleep from the list.

3. Tap OK.
