Samsung’s Galaxy S24 lineup was introduced early in January during its Galaxy Unpacked event. Apart from all the new features, hardware, and software smarts, the batteries of the newly launched S24 trios have gotten bigger capabilities. The S24 comes with a 4,000mAh battery, the S24+ with 4,900mAh, and the Ultra comes with a big 5,000mAh battery.

While the batteries are slated to last for a long time with minimal to moderate usage, people are always looking for ways to save a bit of battery juice in whatever way possible.

So, if you’re someone who wants to save battery on their new S24 lineup, you have come to the right place.

Battery Saving Tips for Samsung Galaxy S24

Even with good enough lasting batteries, people love to get the maximum out of their phone’s battery in any manner whatsoever. If you’re someone or know someone who loves to do everything to get the maximum battery life from their devices, you can follow the tricks and tips that we have mentioned below.

Enable Power Saving Mode

The first and foremost thing that you can do to squeeze out more battery life from your Galaxy S24 is to enable the Power Saving Battery Mode. Here is how you can follow it.

  1. Open the Settings app on your Galaxy S24.
  2. Now scroll down and tap on the Battery option.
  3. Now, you will see the Power Saving toggle right under the battery percentage bar.
  4. Tap on the toggle to enable power saving mode.

Enable Battery Protection

Charging up your Galaxy S24 to a full 100% might seem like a good way to have a full battery. But constantly charging it up to 100% can degrade the battery life. So here is how you can let your phone charge to a certain percentage.

  1. Launch the Settings app on the S24.
  2. Scroll and tap on Battery.
  3. Now, tap on the toggle where it says Battery protection.
  4. Also, tap on it.
  5. You will see three options. Basic, Adaptive, and Maximum.
  6. Choose between Adaptive and Maximum. The battery will stop charging between 60% and 80%.

In this way, you will be able to keep your battery life healthy and prevent it from getting degraded sooner than ever.

Enable Light Performance Mode

While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy is quite useful and powerful it tends to use and drain some battery percentage. If you’re someone who is not using the phone for any high CPU-intensive you can enable low performance mode. Check out these steps.

  1. Open the Settings app on your S24.
  2. Scroll and tap on the Device Care option.
  3. Under the Performance tab, you will see the Performance Profile option. Tap on it.
  4. Tap on the Light option. The light option prioritizes your battery life, and cooling efficiency as well as lowers the processor speed.

Adjust The AOD of your Galaxy S24

The Always on Display for your Galaxy S24 is a great way to see little details and notifications without using the whole screen. However, the AOD tends to take up some percentage of the battery. The best part is Samsung’s One UI lets you tweak your AOD which can help with consuming very minimal battery life.

  1. Launch the Settings app.
  2. Now, scroll and tap on the Lock Screen and AOD options.
  3. Select the Always On Display option to reveal more settings.
  4. Under the Always On Display, disable the Show Lock Screen Wallpaper toggle.
  5. Next, tap on the When to Show option.
  6. You can choose between the Scheduled option or the Tap to Show option.
  7. Based on the option you choose, you can set the AOD to display at a certain time or you can manually choose to wake or sleep the AOD.

Charge With A Samsung Certified Charger

It is always best to use chargers that are certified for your smartphone. Using the original Samsung charger will help prevent the battery from facing any power supply-related issues. Since your official Samsung charger is rated to draw a certain amount of power for your specific phone, your phone will not overheat which helps preserve the battery life resulting in better battery performance.

Charge Your Devices Using a Power bank or a Power Outlet

While you can use your laptop to charge your Galaxy S24, via the USB-C cable, it is generally not recommended. That is because the device will be charging at a very slow rate and the device can end up overheating. So avoid charging your Galaxy S24 with your laptop and use a power bank or a regular wall outlet instead.

Uninstall Apps That You Do Not Use

Devices come with a ton of apps and it is not necessary for you to use them all. So what you can do is simply uninstall apps that you simply have no use for. Why uninstall apps you don’t use? That is because many apps will have a background activity process which in turn will be using some amount of CPU processing and battery.

Getting rid of unwanted apps ensures that your device is not simply running them in the background and also prevents the battery from being used to perform additional tasks. You can follow this guide to know what apps you can uninstall on your Galaxy S24.

Keep Your Apps and Device Updated

Software bugs can also tend to hurt the battery life of your Galaxy S24. So, ensure that all your apps are up to date and as well as your device is running the latest available software update, to prevent any unnecessary battery drain. Your S24’s battery will thank you for it.

Avoid Using Networks With Weak Reception

Now this may not be ideal for everyone, but, if it is possible for you, try to switch to a network that has a good or excellent network range, especially at your home. When the network has a weak signal, your device will be trying its best to get a connection to the network. Doing so, your device will end up using more power which can result in either overheating or excess battery drain.

If possible, you can always connect to a good wifi network for all of your internet needs to avoid making your phone strain hard to establish a connection with a weak signal.

Adjust The Display Resolution

The display resolution of all S24 devices can be up to 2K. While you get a much sharper display on your device, this higher display resolution will make your phone draw power to display everything at a higher resolution. Follow these steps to change the display resolution of your Galaxy S24.

  1. Open the Settings app and tap on Display.
  2. Now scroll and tap on Screen Resolution.
  3. Here you can choose between the HD+ and the FHD+ screen resolution. Both these display resolutions consume less power when compared to the WQHD+ resolution.

Adjust The Refresh Rate Of Your Display

Having a display that runs smoothly is always good. However, if you seem to be running out of battery and do not have any option to charge the device up, it is best to adjust the Motion Smoothness of your display. Here is how you can do that.

  1. Launch Settings and tap on Display.
  2. Now, sect the Motion Smoothness option.
  3. Tap on the Standard option. That will bring down the refresh rate of your display from 120 Hz up to 60 Hz.
  4. Finally, tap on the Apply button to save those changes.

Enable WiFi Power Saving

With the Wi-Fi power-saving mode on your Galaxy S24, you can set your phone to automatically connect to the wifi only when you wake the device. Thai helps save battery as your device doesn’t have to always be connected to the wifi network when it is in sleep mode.

  1. Open the Settings app and tap Connections.
  2. Now, choose WiFi and tap on the three dots at the top right corner.
  3. Select Intelligent WiFi from the menu.
  4. Switch the toggle On where it says wifi Power saving mode.

Disable Nearby Device Scanning

While having your phone automatically scan for nearby devices, it tends to search for devices actively at all times. This adds a strain to your battery performance. So, to avoid this strain on your battery, do the following.

  1. Launch the Settings app and tap on Connections.
  2. Now select More Connections and then switch the toggle to off for Nearby Device Scanning.
