Here's a handy list of tweaks you can use to improve the battery life of your Samsung Galaxy S6 and/or S6 Edge. Some of these are fairly obvious and will work on any smartphone, but several of these are especially useful on the S6 series. Enjoy!
- Lower the brightness of your display
- Don't use a wallpaper that has a great deal of white in the background (white colors use the most power)
- Don't use live wallpapers
- Try using negative colors - found in Settings > Accessibility > Vision > Negative colors.
- Turn off "Smart Stay" feature - this feature is pretty handy (your phone uses the camera to keep the display on while you are looking at it), but it does use up the juice
- Switch to greyscale. This is if you want to be extra frugal. Go to Accessibility > Vision > Greyscale.
- Turn off motions and gestures (if you don't care about the motion controls, this can save your battery) - Settings menu > Motions and gestures
- Turn off always on WiFi scanning - Settings > Wi-Fi > More > Always allow scanning.
That's it for now. Feel free to add any tips that we might have missed to this thread, and let us know how you are enjoying your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge.
