Make Samsung Galaxy S10 battery last longer
Battery life can be improved by the following steps as long as the battery itself is not damaged. If the problem is the battery itself, you have no other option but to replace it altogether. Of that is not the case, here are the steps you can do to make Samsung Galaxy S10 battery last longer.
Battery Usage: In most of the cases, the reason why the battery is draining so fast are the apps. There is an inbuilt tool you can use to check what apps are using how much battery and act accordingly. The apps you frequently use, especially the social media apps might be the culprits. Also, some apps are notorious for running in the background and draining the battery. So it is always a good idea to check the battery usage.
To do so;
- Open Settings.
- Tap on Device Care.
- Select Battery.
- Tap on Battery Usage.
Restart: A simple restart can sometimes fix some common issues, including battery drainage. There may be some minor bugs that may be causing the battery life problems. A restart may be able to fix those bugs and eliminate battery problems. You can restart using the Power menu, or the better way is to press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power button at the same time to force a restart. Force restarting will act like removing the battery and putting it again.
It is recommended to reboot your Galaxy S10 once a week. You can schedule a restart from Settings > Device Care > tap on 3-dot menu > Select Auto Restart.
Clear Cache: A corrupted system cache can be the issue here. It may be time to clear the system cache partition. It is simple.
Follow the following steps;
- Turn off your phone.
- Press and hold the Volume Up button, Bixby button, and Power button.
- After the green Android logo appears, let go of all the buttons. You will get into recovery.
- Use Volume buttons to navigate and select Wipe Cache Partition.
- Press the Power button to select.
- Highlight Yes using the volume buttons and press the power button to execute.
- After some time, the cache will be wiped. Reboot the device by selecting Reboot system now.
Always-On Display: If you have enabled Always-On Display, that may be the reason for battery drainage. Although Samsung says only 5% of the battery is used by AoD, it could still be the culprit.
To disable AoD;
- Go to Settings.
- Select the Lock Screen.
- Disable Always-On display.
