In case your Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone battery drains too fast you can check the info posted below and learn what you can do to prolong its autonomy. The Galaxy S10 still gives a day of full charge, but what if you could get more than that.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones are packing a 3400 mAh battery for both models, Exynos and Snapdragon, but there are numerous users reporting that the battery life is not the same for both models. This is because battery life depends on the usage, on the installed apps, on apps running in the background, etc. We can't say for sure that the instructions below will work for everybody, but you can at least try some of them and report back if you've noticed any improvements on your Galaxy S10 battery life.
How to Improve Galaxy S10 Battery Life:
Below you can find several steps that you can take in order to improve and prolong your Galaxy S10 battery life. Check them all, and if you can think of other cool tricks that will improve the battery life of any Android devices, then feel free to let us know in the comments.
Use the Android 9.0 Pie new Night Mode:
After the Android 9.0 Pie official upgrade has been announced by Google, Samsung has started their work on a brand new user interface called One. The One UI is the first design from Samsung in a long time that comes with a Night Mode.
Using the Night Mode on a Samsung Galaxy S10 will turn to a dark color scheme all the white space found throughout the entire Android 9 Pie design. Also, the Night Mode when used is easier on the eyes, as you won't have to expose them to the white color that's normally found on the default Android 9 Pie interface.
In case you don't know how to enable Night Mode, then you can do it like this: open the Settings app, tap on the Display option, now find the Night Mode option and enable it. Alternatively you can open the Navigation Toggles and there you should find the Night Mode toggle - tap once and it will instantly be enabled.
Use a Lower Brightness Setting:
The Samsung Galaxy S10 display is really bright and most users will keep the screen always at its maximum brightness setting. This shouldn't happen as you only need the maximum brightness only when you're outside, as for when you're inside and out of the sun, then you can use only your device at half of its brightness level.
The brighter you keep your Galaxy S10 screen the more power it will draw from the battery. Also, you might want to use the Adaptive Brightness function, but note that sometimes that setting will not work as intended and you're better off setting the brightness manually every time you require a certain level of light out of your phone's screen.
Disable Apps and Android Functions You're Not Using:
The Samsung devices have always come packed with tons of apps you don't really need to use. Go to your phone's Settings> Advanced Features and see if you can disable some settings you don't usually use.
Also, go to Settings> Apps and look for the applications that are always running, make sure to look at those apps that you haven't opened in a long time. Find those and disable or uninstall them, as some of these might run in the background and are going to drain a lot of power of your device's battery.
Another thing you can do is to disable Facebook and Instagram apps, as these are known to greatly decrease battery life out of all Android devices. You should know that you can use Facebook, Instagram and other social media apps right from your phone's browser, as you can set bookmarks and open them straight from the phone's home screen.
Make Sure Your Galaxy S10 Always Gets Maximum Signal from Wi-Fi Router and Cell Towers
If you're in-home router's signal is weak, then the Galaxy S10 will always try to compensate and use more power in order to keep a steady internet connection every time you're using the device. Make sure to check the Wi-Fi signal constantly and if you can't get full bars out of your router, then consider buying another better model.
Also, you can try to keep the Location GPS set to its lowest level, so that your device won't constantly try to pinpoint your exact location. If you're using bluetooth connections to interact with devices around your home, then you should disable the bluetooth every time you're out of your house.
Disable Always-On Display:
The Samsung Galaxy S10 comes with Always-On Display feature which is quite cool to use, but not at all times. This feature will keep the screen on every time it displays any info, but you should know that you can disable it entirely or set a schedule and set it to display info only when you really need it to.
The Always-On Display feature will drain quite a lot of power out of your Galaxy S10 battery, so you should consider disabling it. You can disable it by going to Navigation Bar and tapping once on the Always On Display toggle, or you can set a schedule for it by long pressing the toggle and opening its Settings menu.
To set a schedule for Always On Display you have to open its menu under Settings. Go to Display Mode and set "Show as Scheduled", then tap on the "Set Schedule" option. Also, you can set it to "Tap to Show" and the AOD will be enabled, but it only be displayed for a few seconds when you tap your Galaxy S10 once to check it for notifications.
Use the Power Saving Mode More Often:
I know that Power Save is not something that someone would want to run on their device, but you should still use it when your device's battery is low.
The Android 9 Pie Power Saving Mode is quite strong and it doesn't have to resort to disabling most important functions when applied on the Galaxy S10 device. The normal Power Save will simply decrease brightness, reduce apps usage, and lower the processor power, so that it will get you a few extra hours out of your device.
To enable Samsung Galaxy S10 Power Save you simply need to go to Settings> Device Care> Battery and tap on Power Mode to select a different one. Also, you can open the Navigation panel and tap the Power Save toggle to enable it.
Reboot Galaxy S10 Constantly:
The Android 9 Pie still tells Samsung users to reboot their devices regularly in order to keep the battery life constant at all times. We recommend you restart your phone once every couple of days, as it takes only takes under a minute to complete a full reboot.
The reboot process refreshes the device and it allows it to run at full performance without being overworked by all the apps you've ran in the last few days. You can reboot the device by holding Power button and selecting the Restart option.
Also, the Galaxy S10 features an "Auto Restart" function under its Device Care menu and you can enable it in order to have it done automatically by your device when you're not using it.
These were all the instructions we had on how to improve your Samsung Galaxy S10 battery life and make it run better. There are a couple of things you can try, but we considered not listing them above, as they are probably common knowledge among Galaxy S10 users: if you've set your phone's screen resolution above the FullHD+ 2280×1080, then you should revert it back to this particular value, as it not require as much power to run as it would with the WQHD+ 3040x1440 one.
Also, you can try to use a black AMOLED wallpaper, as that one will keep all the black pixels off and only the pixels displaying other colors will be enabled and running. If you can think of other tricks on how to improve the Galaxy S10 battery life, then you can tell us below in the comments field.
