How W-Lan Energy Saving Mode works:
Whenever the W-Lan connection is up and running and your router is up, battery life is being consumed by the Samsung Galaxy S , Often, however, this is unnecessary because you just do not need Internet etc. Here comes the new feature into play. If the "W-Lan Power Saving Mode" option is activated on the S8, then patterns in wireless data traffic are analyzed and the wireless connection is adjusted accordingly.
For example, your e-mail program automatically retrieves e-mail from your inbox server every 15 minutes. The energy-saving mode recognizes that this process takes place only every 15 minutes.
This means that only at this time the W-Lan connection must be made. So all apps etc. and your usage behavior of the W-Lan are analyzed and then the W-Lan connection adjusted accordingly.
As a result, you'll have times when the wireless can be turned off without you having a disadvantage, but the battery performance is spared.
To enable Wi-Fi Power Saver on the Samsung Galaxy S8:
- Open the App menu, then Settings
- Select "Connections" and then "Wi-Fi."
- Tap "Advanced" in the top right corner
- You will now see the settings for "W-Lan"
- Activate "WLAN energy saving mode"
You now know how the WLAN energy saving mode works and how you can activate it on the Galaxy S8.
