Samsung Galaxy S III is one of the best selling smart phones on the market today and it is quite easy to see why. Large displays have seen some success in the past and Samsung Galaxy S III has one of the largest displays available currently. It also has possibly the best price vs. performance ratio, among all smart phones. It features a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor on a standard Exynos 4412 Quad chipset. It is equipped with an excellent 8 mega-pixel camera and also has a few more gadgets like; barometer, gyro, proximity, accelerometer and also the good old compass.
So with all this said, it is quite clear that we are talking about a truly outstanding device. But as with all smart phones there is one problem. In order to power all of those awesome utilities, it consumes quite a significant amount of power. That is not to say that its ion lithium 2100 mAh battery does not cope with its task. Samsung Galaxy S III battery is actually quite well suited for its task.
Some people have complained that their battery doesn’t last even full 24 hours. So in this article I am going to list a few methods to extend your battery life way beyond its expected duration.
The first thing to remember is that you should turn off all of the features that you are currently not using. The next thing is the screen; of course a screen of this size consumes quite a large amount of power. This can be substantially minimized by reducing brightness to a level you are still comfortable with. Also, choosing the right wallpaper can substantially reduce the screen power drain. An ideal one should be static and not too bright. Another thing you should do is minimize the screen timeout. Some of the Apps and Widgets may be poorly written and can as a result, use quite a lot of power. You should uninstall all of the Apps and Widgets you do not use to conserve your Samsung Galaxy S III battery. GPS is another feature that can drain your battery quite substantially. That means that you should prevent those apps that you currently don’t need from accessing it. You should also drain your Samsung Galaxy S III battery completely at least once a month and then fully charge it, to keep it healthy. If you are already past your guarantee period you should also consider rooting. This will allow you to access various power management options, which will allow you to control battery use more accurately. You should also avoid extreme temperatures as they can damage your Samsung Galaxy S III battery. It is also essential to reboot your phone at least once a day, to empty the memory. LTE is also a feature that should only be active; when you are actually using it, when you are not, select 3G instead. You should also consider acquiring a custom ROM, since they always feature better power management than stock ones.
I hope that the above tips will help you extend your Samsung Galaxy S III battery life to the fullest.
