Samsung One UI 4.1 Tip: How to maximize battery life of your Galaxy S22?

Today’s ultra-slim, super-powerful, multitasking-ready smartphones let you move easily at any time of the day unless you stumble across a dead battery and portable power banks, forcibly pulling, or for one hour, plug the wall next to it.

While it may be different, there are still a lot of common things between the Galaxy S22 Ultra and its S22 and S22 Plus. All three models have Qualcomm’s latest, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, as well as IP68 weatherproof ceilings and Gorilla Glass Victus Plus front and rear.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra and S22 Plus have OLED screens with a maximum brightness of 1,750 nits, but we all have a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz. Only the Ultra variant uses an LTPO display, which allows the screen to change its refresh rate compared to other models, which theoretically helps save battery life.

Reduce your Screen Brightness

This can significantly extend your battery life, especially for devices with larger and sharper screens. If you want your phone to be 100 percent bright, only in the afternoon when the sun is most bright. At any time, you can reduce the brightness of your phone by 75 percent or less.

You can adjust it on Galaxy S22 by going to Settings> Display or swiping down from the notification bar. Most recent phones also have a custom brightness setting, which allows the device to be adjusted automatically. Be sure to turn it on.

Samsung’s Galaxy S22 has higher screen refresh rates up to 120Hz, which provides easier viewing and speeds up battery life. You can also activate the adaptive refresh rate setting so that the device adjusts based on the content you are viewing, further saving your battery life.

Change your screen theme and wallpaper to Dark Mode

It also solves noticeable power savings. On Galaxy S22, go to your phone launcher app by tapping an empty space on your home screen and clicking Settings. From there, you can choose different colored wallpapers and toggle between lighter and darker themes for other screens.

Along with the new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable, the latest Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy S22, also feature Dark Mode, which is specifically designed to reduce battery life and make it easier on the eyes after the day. You can also set a schedule to turn on the dark mode at a specific time each day.

Decrease the time before your screen goes to sleep

You can save energy by keeping your screen off when you do not need it. It also helps prevent pocket dials and other types of accidental screen touches. This feature is also available from Settings> Display. Screen timeout can be set anywhere from 10 minutes to 15 seconds.

Adjust settings in power-training apps

Most apps are busy, waking up your phone to download content and sending you notifications on the go, always connected to your LTE carrier. There are many solutions.

On Samsung phones, you can locate power-hogging apps by going to Settings> Battery & Device Care> Battery> Background usage limit and then selecting which apps to turn off. (On other Android phones, use Force Stop from Settings> Battery.)

For Google Maps, Spotify, and other streaming apps, pre-download maps, playlists, and podcasts over Wi-Fi before heading out. You can also turn off notifications from other apps and limit their background activity. Collectively, these changes save significant battery life.

Turn on the Power Saving Mode

Difficult times – such as your battery dropping less than 15 percent – call for tougher action. Power-saving mode on Galaxy S22 automatically reduces screen brightness, lowers screen resolution, limits processor speed, and blocks background network usage. You can adjust each of these settings and see the extra battery life you expect with each change.

On the latest Samsung Galaxy S22 series, there is also an emergency mode, which can be found under Settings> Security & Emergency. This will allow you to keep your battery for several days, but you will only have access to core apps and features.

Turn off Location Services

Not to mention the chip because your smartphone’s GPS receiver is one of its biggest power hogs. You can turn off GPS altogether, however, it will sacrifice very important services. Alternatively, you can find out which apps are pinging the location and turn off the unwanted ones one by one.

On Android, you can do this from Settings‌> Location. This can be achieved by going to Google Maps and downloading maps in advance while you are on Wi-Fi.
