How To Handle Your Samsung Galaxy S6 Battery

With a brilliant display, powerful processor and plenty of software features, you may find yourself draining down the relatively small batteries on the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge a bit faster than other phones, but that doesn’t mean the phone’s battery life is completely out of your control.

Heavy users usually have to quick-charge their Galaxy S6 some time during the day, simply because they will run out of juice otherwise. From my experience, before applying the tips below, my beloved SGS6 got somewhere between 3 and 3.5h of Screen on Time on a given day before shutting off in my pocket.

Disable unwanted services to increase battery life

Samsung stuffed your device with lots and lots of micro-app, most of which you will probably never even get to use. However, these services still continue to run in the background without you knowing, draining your battery every second, minute and hour of the day.

To disable these battery-sucking tiny little apps, all you need to do is download a paid app called Package Disabler Pro, which costs just $1.95. After opening the app you will be able to disable the services you don’t need or simply have no use for. You don’t need to root your device to make full use of this app.

Disclaimer: you will be warned that Package Disabler might trip KNOX. According to the app developer himself, if your KNOX services get disabled, all you need to do is enable all services that you have disabled to get it all back. With the setup below, which I use myself, KNOX has not been tripped.

 

Question Samsung Galaxy S6 Battery

For those who have bought the Samsung Galaxy S6 and have issues with the so called battery erosion issue, where you have to wait for the battery to get almost empty and then charge it.

Answer

Cell phone batteries act in a different manner when it comes to charging. In fact, batteries last longer if the charge is kept between 20% and 80%, even though full charges are absolutely fine. The one thing that must be remembered is getting the phone to absolutely low battery or red signal before charging, as this can effect the phone quite heavily.

Battery life is the only chink in this awesome phone’s armour, but it can be managed and isn’t a deal breaker for us. If you want the best smartphone money that can buy right now and don’t care about fancy pants curved edges, the Galaxy S6 is a top phone that shouldn’t disappoint.
