How to tell if your Samsung phone needs a battery replacement

Battery degradation is inevitable, even if the device is of flagship quality. As battery efficiency decreases, the battery may deplete drastically or shut down, greatly impairing the experience when you use the phone. If that happens, replacing the battery will help save big bucks as well as extend the device’s life. But, how to tell if your Samsung phone needs a battery replacement?

When to replace the battery

Battery performance depends on a series of activities, like playing games for a long time, chatting continuously, streaming movies/shows and more. Overall, if you are frequently experiencing unexpected shutdowns, drastic decreases in battery life or any other battery-related issues, it’s likely that your phone has a battery problem. You’ll get a pop-up message that your battery requires replacement, or you can check on your own through the Samsung Members app.

  • Open the Samsung Members app.
  • Tap on Get Help>Start.
  • Then you should see the list of items that can be tested. Choose Diagnose All Features or Battery Status. After the test is finished, it will tell you if your battery is working normally or needs to be replaced.

How to replace the battery

Most Samsung devices, including Galaxy smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, TVs, monitors, and more, come with a standard one-year brand warranty. If your Samsung phone has a battery problem and it is within warranty time, you can directly go to the official service center for free battery replacement. If the device is out of warranty, you can go to a third-party repair center (note that the components might be non-official and cause problems) or buy genuine parts from the Samsung Repair Program and self-repair.

Till now, the Samsung Repair Program has included the Galaxy S20 and S21 flagships, the Galaxy Tab S7+, the Galaxy S22 series, the Galaxy Book Pro 15” and Galaxy Book Pro 360 15”. You can replace basic parts on your own, such as the screen (which also includes the midframe and battery), the charging port, as well as the back glass. As before, there’s no option to replace just the battery on its own, which is by far the biggest limitation of the scheme.

Considering Samsung now offers four years of operating system updates and five years of security updates on many of its phones, replacing the degraded battery should be able to keep your phone for as long as you want.
