A decent phone, keeping the price-range in mind. Now, even though the battery is decent, you might want to know those few subtle know-hows when it comes to saving some more energy in your Galaxy J7.

You need not wait no longer!

Uninstall the apps you don’t use often

Go to the edit option on the right top of the App Menu list and uninstall the apps you do not want. Make sure you don’t uninstall google app because this will deactivate google voice service and also play store because you will be unable to further download apps. Some apps use more battery power so if you don’t want those apps then better uninstall those apps.

Do turn off connectivity and sensors when not needed

You should turn off the connectivity options when they are not in use. Turn off Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and hotspot when not in use as these features regularly check the availability of connectivity in the background for connections and thus reduce the battery life.

Turn off sensors if not required by going to the Advance options in the Settings. This is required to turn off because these sensors use a large amount of battery life.

Optimize the power uses of apps

It is necessary to optimize the power uses of apps as the apps battery life when it runs in the background.

Go to the Battery in Settings, tap on Detail button under ‘save the battery power by optimizing the power usage of apps’ and make sure every app you do not want to run in the background is set to always power saving which means after three minutes by default it will turn off and stop operating in the background. There is also a ‘turned off’ list there which has the apps those will always operate in the background.

Turn off Voice over LTE (VoLTE) preferred

To boost almost 15% of battery, turn off voice over LTE preferred calling from the Settings under More option in phone apps used for calling. 4G LTE calls drains more battery life than 2G calls and turning it off provides you a large amount of battery life if you are a frequent caller.

Enable Power Saving Mode

Samsung phones have Power Saving and Ultra Power Saving modes that can be enabled either from Quick Settings or the Settings menu. This can also be activated when battery percentage will drop to a specific value. This will disable all connectivity when the phone is ideal which will save battery power for many hours of use. This will not disable calling feature.

Reduce the screen brightness and timeout duration

To save the battery life, it is advisable to reduce the screen brightness and turn off the ‘Automatic Brightness’ option. Minimize the timeout duration of the screen from Display option from the Device sub-menu of the Settings menu. Low brightness consumes less battery power and disabling Automatic Brightness saves power more.

Keep your phone up to date

Update your phone regularly because certain software updates help in improving battery life. To check for new updates ‘System Updates’ in ‘About Device’ menu under ‘About Device’ from Settings menu.
