Samsung’s high-end devices are certainly not famous for their autonomy. However, with the arrival of the Galaxy Note9, the manufacturer has shown that it could improve and in Galaxy S10 illustrates that idea. However, the power of the battery is never enough, so we decided to help you save more on your Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10 or S10 +.
Turn on night mode
One of the first steps to save battery power is to turn on the night mode in the system settings. Since the introduction of One UI, Samsung devices can take advantage of this dark theme feature that aims to turn off most pixels of the AMOLED display.
To activate this mode on the new Galaxy S10 , simply go to Settings> Display and activate the night mode . You can also use the quick access, in the notification drop-down menu, it will allow you to activate and deactivate it much faster.
Of course, the night mode also allows and especially reduce eye fatigue, especially at night. That’s why Samsung calls it Night Mode and also lets you activate it at your own pace at specific times.
Switch to FHD + resolution.
The Galaxy S10 and S10 + allow you to set the screen definition from WQHD + to FHD +. This process will allow you to continue to enjoy the quality of the Samsung AMOLED display , while saving a lot of energy.
To change the resolution, go to Settings> Display> Screen Resolution and select FHD + (2280×1080). Do not forget to press the Apply button !
Disable Always On Display
Designed to remove the notification LED , which is useful in many ways, the Always On Display (AOD) is one of the coolest features of smartphones with AMOLED displays. However, we are well aware that, even if only to a small extent, it consumes valuable energy.
To turn off the Always On Display feature on Galaxy S10 Series devices, go to Settings> Lock Screen> Always On Display. In this tab, you can choose to disable it, to activate it for only 10 seconds at the touch of the screen, or only for a certain period of time.
A quicker way to enable / disable the AOD is to use the quick access menu in the notification drop-down list, the icon is usually on the second page.
Enable adaptive battery
One of the novelties available exclusively on the Galaxy S10 range is the adaptive battery , which uses artificial intelligence, powered by the NPU of the new Exynos 9820 processor on the three smartphones of the S10 range. The adaptive battery will learn the different applications most used by the user when handling the device, limiting those that are not used frequently.
To activate this function, you must follow the path: Settings> Device Maintenance> Battery. Here you will then have to press the options button (three points at the top right) and select Settings . You can now activate various functions, including the adaptive battery.
Enable automatic optimization
Another new feature introduced with the One UI interface is automatic optimization, which (as its name implies) will automatically optimize your smartphone once a day by closing applications in the background, except for those used more recently, and deleting unnecessary files except personal files.
Automatic optimization only takes place when the screen is off and the smartphone is not in use, so we recommend programming the optimization at night. For my part, I chose to launch at 3 am.
To manage the function, simply go to Settings> Device Maintenance. Here you have to press the options button (three points at the top right) and select the option Automatic optimization. The corresponding screen opens where you can enable or disable the function and select the start time.
