Extend battery life on the Galaxy S6 and S6 EdgeMake sure your brand-new Galaxy phone makes it through the day with these tips and settings.
[MUSIC] If you don't have time to sit around and wait for your phone to charge, there are a few things you can do to extend the battery life of your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge. For starters, do the obvious. Disable wi-fi. Dim your screen and turn bluetooth off. [MUSIC] But if you really want to optimize your battery life, the new Galaxy phones have pre-sets specifically designed to make your phone last longer. In settings, go to battery and you'll see that you actually have two power saving modes. The first option disables or minimizes just a few key features to save battery. Like CPU performance and various lights and brightness. But for the times when you are desperate to extend the life of your battery, use the second option. Ultra power saving mode goes to the extreme, by doing things like making your screen gray scale and disabling antennas when the screen is off. You can enable either one of these modes within this setting screen or through the quick settings menu. Older power saving modes can be found by tapping edit.
