In the video, Samsung divided the tutorial into four sections that are as follows:

  • Overall battery use optimization
  • Managing battery consumption of apps
  • Display settings adjustment

Overall battery use optimization

As part of extending the battery life of your One UI 4.1-based Galaxy device, Samsung recommends closing unused apps. To do so, simply, head for device Settings, tap Battery, and device care.

Once done, the device will take a while to scan the issues and errors that cause battery drainage. After scanning, you should see a button entitled “Fix now”, now, hit the toggle and wait until the option arrives of “Show apps causing issues”.

Managing battery consumption of apps

Installed on your Galaxy smartphone, some apps may continue to use up battery in the background even when you closed them in recents. However, you can prevent such problems easily by navigating to the Battery and device care, then tapping on Battery.

Scroll down, and you should see the Background usage limits, beside the Power saving toggle, open it. Here, you can enable the toggle that puts unused apps to sleep as well as there are options to customize them manually among Sleeping, Deep sleeping and Never sleeping apps.

Display settings adjustment

Display, which is the most used part of smartphones nowadays drains a huge amount of battery, however, we can optimize it for even better efficiency. Unlike the above-mentioned two tips, this time, you need to jump to Display section under the device Settings.

  • Enable Dark mode, as it helps minimize battery drain.
  • Motion smoothness, commonly known as Display Refresh rate also helps run the battery for a long, meanwhile, you need to switch it to Standard from Adaptive.

Battery status diagnostics

Even after optimizing the battery health according to the above-listed tutorial, if you still suspect battery drain, it’s time to open the Samsung Members app and tap on the Support tab. Inside the Diagnostics, select Battery status to ensure whether the battery status is optimal or not.
