Samsung Galaxy S9 Save and Extend Battery Life – Tips

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is equipped with a battery that unfortunately doesn't have much capacity. This means that it is usually 80% empty at the end of the day and you need to charge the device overnight. But what if you don't have a charger?

Then the following tips and tricks should help you to save on the battery and thus extend the battery life of your device to a maximum.

Samsung Galaxy S9 - These battery tips will help you optimize the battery life

Activate energy saving mode in the settings - Highest level

The energy saving mode can be activated in different levels on the Samsung Galaxy S9. Simply drag the status bar into the screen from above with two fingers and then select the toggle with power save mode. By pressing on it for a long time, you get to the corresponding menu, in which further settings can then be made. The energy-saving mode should always be activated in order to optimize battery life in a few simple steps.

Activate aircraft mode

The aircraft mode deactivates all active connections. Since the Samsung Galaxy S9 requires a lot of power for the power supply, modem and W-Lan, this saves you a lot of battery power. It is important that you cannot receive any calls or messages during the night. To activate the aircraft mode on the S8 and S8 Plus, simply pull down the status bar and touch the aircraft icon.

Switch off unnecessary send and receive functions if not required

Activates the power save mode via the status bar

This generally extends the battery life between 15-25% depending on the type of performance selected. You can choose between "Medium" and "Max" as preconfigured settings. However, these can also be adjusted, so that more battery power can be saved in some cases.

Reduce display brightness

The brightness of the Samsung Galaxy S9 display is largely responsible for battery life. Here you can save on most batteries by setting the brightness as low as possible. The best way to do this is to drag the status bar of the Samsung Galaxy S9 from above into the screen with two fingers. You can now see the slider for the brightness. Sets the brightness control as low as possible. Additionally: Tap on the small arrow next to it, so that the menu for the brightness opens. Deactivates "Automatic brightness" here. This will keep your attitude.

Do not use Live backgrounds and disable Parallax effect

Live backgrounds require constant processor power. Even if they are nice to look at, they drain a lot of battery capacity. So use a JPEG wallpaper instead of live backgrounds. The Parallax effect requires additional power from your battery, similar to the Live Wallpaper, because the motion sensors are used non-stop. This is deactivated by redefining the background image. Open it up: Settings --> Backgrounds & Themes Select a photo and you will see the option "Motion effect". All you have to do here is remove the marking. Ready!

Reduce Display Time-Out

The display timeout determines the time after which the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S9 automatically switches off and sends the smartphone to standby. The shorter the timeout is set, the more battery is saved. The timeout on the Samsung Galaxy S9 can be adjusted as follows:

Deactivate Always On Display

Even if the Always-On display of the Samsung Galaxy S9 should only consume a small battery, it still consumes more than when it is completely switched off. That's why you should disable Always On Display on your Samsung Galaxy S9 to reduce battery consumption. Simply pull down the status bar and then deactivate the corresponding toggle. Ready!

The following tips are intended to maximize battery life and are therefore not necessarily suitable for everyday use. For the sake of completeness, however, we would like to comment on this:

Permanently activate GSM mode

The "GSM" network mode can be permanently set manually. This way your Samsung Galaxy S9 will always connect to the GSM mobile network. The advantage is that there is no need to switch between LTE, HSPA and GSM networks, saving battery power on your smartphone.
