GalaxyS5 , smart phones , Tips Corner / December 23, 2014

It’s downright frustrating when you’re forced to keep your Galaxy S5 plugged into a nearby wall outlet due to poor battery life. Samsung touts its flagship smartphone as being one of the most energy-efficient mobile devices on the market. But like all smartphones, its battery performance is largely dependent on its settings/preferences, apps, and overall usage. So, how can you improve the battery life of your Galaxy S5? Ultra Powering Saving Mode Samsung introduced a new battery-saving feature in the Galaxy S5, dubbed Ultra-Powering Saving Mode. Some users assume this feature is enabled by default, but unfortunately this isn’t the case. You must manually enable it by accessing the quick settings drawer and tapping the “Ultra-Powering Saving Mode” option. Once enabled, you should notice a world of difference in your device’s battery life. Some websites claim that a Galaxy S5 in Ultra-Power Saving Mode can run for 24 hours on just 10% charge. Of course, not everyone will experience the same results, so don’t expect to achieve a full day’s worth of power on just 10% battery.

consumer electronics , GalaxyS5 , News , smart phones / October 15, 2014

Mophie, one of the most leading manufacturers of extended battery smartphone cases, recently released a case for the Galaxy S5. Samsung’s flagship smartphone is already touted as being one of the most power-efficient devices on the market, offering an average of 21 hours talk time per single charge. And users can stretch their Galaxy S5’s battery even longer by using its Ultra Power Saving Mode. So, do you really need Mophie’s extended battery case? The Galaxy S5 features a removable 2,850 mAh battery, meaning you can carry a backup if you can’t seem to keep your device charged. When your device runs out of juice, you can simply replace the battery for instant power. There’s no faster or easier way to recharge your device. With that said, Galaxy S5-compatible batteries aren’t cheap, so it’s probably a smarter move to invest in an extended battery case, such as Mophie’s. You might assume that Mophie’s case for the Galaxy S5 features the same 2,850 mAh battery. After all, this is the battery type used in the Galaxy S5, so it would only make sense for Mophie to include it in its case. According to the company’s official product listing, though, it features…

Looking to get a little more use out of your Galaxy S5’s battery? Samsung’s flagship smartphone will reportedly offer 21 hours of “talk time” on a single charge, but when you have half a dozen or more processes running in the background, it rarely reaches this amount. The good news is that you can significantly extend the Galaxy S5’s battery life by making a few simple changes to your device. Lower The Brightness Bold, brightly colored display screens are pleasing to the eyes, but they can drain your device’s battery. To reduce the brightness on your Galaxy S5, access the notifications bar and uncheck the box next to auto brightness. Next, slide the brightness bar down to a lower setting. Disable GPS Arguably, one of the biggest battery-draining functions on smartphones, including the Galaxy S5, is GPS. Don’t get me wrong, GPS is great when you need road directions or when you’re lost in the woods, but leaving this feature on any other time is a huge waste of energy. To disable it, tap Settings > Location > and move the switch at the top of the screen to the off position. Disable WiFi Of course, disabling the WiFi on…

Samsung Galaxy S5 Optimized For Longer Battery Life
News / March 18, 2014

Along with its superior hardware, the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 will also feature improved battery performance, allowing users to run their device for a longer length of time on single charge. This is just one of the many notable features that’s driving up pre-registration numbers for the Galaxy S5. Why Battery Life is a Common Issue Among Smartphones Battery life remains a growing problem among modern-day smartphones. As the hardware and software develops, there’s more juice being pulled from the battery. This results in shorter battery life, especially when the user is running processor-intensive applications like watching YouTube videos, playing games, using GPS services (serious battery-killer), etc. There’s nothing more frustrating that being forced to use your smartphone while it’s plugged into a nearby outlet, but unfortunately this is becoming an all-too-familiar scenario among smartphone owners today. Rather than carrying your smartphone in your pocket, its short battery life restricts you to using it around an electrical outlet. Samsung’s Solution To Poor Battery Life Samsung has taken the Galaxy S5 to the next level by optimizing its battery life. As most Galaxy fanatics may already know, the new Galaxy S5 features a 2800 mAh battery. This alone isn’t a ground-breaking…
