Samsung Galaxy S3 Tips: Maximizing Battery Life

By  | 

There is no getting away from the fact that while the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a superb handset, as with all devices with large screens it does suffer from terrible battery life. So here are ways that you can improve the life of the battery on your Samsung Galaxy S3.

Samsung Galaxy S3 tips: improving battery life

Always make sure that you put your handset on charge whenever you can and avoid letting the battery run down. Deep discharging of the battery can cut down the battery’s potency to hold a charge, so charge, charge, charge.

If you sync your email then you may find it uses a lot of your battery. A better solution may be to change from automatically fetching mail frequently to getting it at intervals much further apart, say every 30 minutes.

If you have live wallpaper enabled then you might want to change it to a static one to get the most out of your battery. The same goes with using darker wallpapers and reducing the number of widgets on your homescreens.

Turn off features such as Hotspot and GPS if you are not using them. Simultaneously delete apps that aren’t in use and remove any task managers or battery saver apps as the majority have been found to cause more harm than help.

Lower the brightness of the screen and avoid using the auto-brightness setting. You should also turn on the power saving mode feature.

Deleting your email account and then adding it on again will make the Samsung Galaxy S3 refresh its settings and help as well. To go one further, you can perform a factory reset of the handset after backing up your important information to improve battery life and also the performance of your device should you notice a slow down. Sometimes this is the only solution when you’ve tried everything else and still feel like something is bumming the battery out more than usual.
