There is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the most popular smart phone in the year 2013.
But the same with most Android flagship smart phones, the battery life of Samsung Galaxy S4 is sometimes very disappointing, especially when you are use of a lot of functions for a long time. Therefore, we have to use some simple tips to prolong its using time.
1. Equip extra battery or mobile power supply.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 2600mAh built-in lithium battery, however because of the upgradation of the hardware configuration, the power consumption of this phone is also increased. So only one battery always can not meet our demands. The simplest and most effective way to improve that is still on the hardware, to equipped with a second battery or a mobile power supply can effectively improve the endurance capacity, at least you need not to look for charging socket anywhere when you outside.
2. Close the real-time updates main screen plug-in.
Android users like to use home screen plug-in to make it more convenient when open some applications. However, these small plug-in often has real-time update function, for example social and media applications, they will connect to cellular data network to refresh from time to time to obtain a new content. This is undoubtedly very power-hungry. So, closing some similar small plug-in can effectively extend the battery life of Samsung Galaxy S4.
3. Close the additional functions.
Samsung Galaxy S4 is a mobile phone which has a full connection and multiple intelligent operation functions, but are you always needing to use these functions? Maybe not. So, when you don’t need Bluetooth, NFC, GPS or Air View and other functions, just close them through the drop-down notice board. This also can effectively save power.
4. Use a solid color wallpaper.
Another big electricity consumer of mobile phone is wallpaper. Although Samsung Galaxy S4 just build in two sections, of course you will download more content through various forms. But if you want to get a longer using time, it is best not to use video wallpaper. Because the dense graph processing will increase mobile phone power consumption. At the same time, the Samsung Galaxy S4 adopts the Super AMOLED screen which means that each color is self luminous, so if you choose the complex and rich color wallpapers, it will waste more energy than pure color wallpapers.
5. Use the power save mode.
For the high performance mobile phone with quad core processor, using the power save mode is an effective method to lengthen the standby time. Thanks to the Touch Wiz interface, you can find the power saving mode in the Samsung Galaxy S4. The content is also very rich, you can adjust the processor power, close the tactile feedback or open screen saving function.
6. Adjust the display brightness.
The last tip is also the simplest. You can easily adjust the screen brightness in the drop-down notification bar. Some users may habitually use the automatic adjustment function. But in fact, the best way is still the manual adjustment, because the automatically adjustment will need to use a mobile phone built-in sensor, that also wastes power.
All in all, although the above small tips are not exclusive, they are still very simple and effective. If you are plagued by Samsung Galaxy S4 battery life, the above tips maybe will help you make some improvements.
