Battery consumption is something that most Android users worry about. Each interface or customization layer also gives us certain options with which to manage this consumption, as we have seen in MIUI or EMUI This is the case of One UI, the interface of Samsung phones, present for more than a year in the brand’s phones that are launched in Spain.

One UI gives us certain methods with which we can reduce battery consumption on a Samsung phone. Therefore, if you were looking for ways to make the phone consume less energy, there are certain tricks or adjustments that we find in the interface that will be of help.

Manage battery saving modes

Battery saving modes in One UI

One UI has several battery saving modes, with which to regulate the power consumption of the phone. In this way, depending on the situation in which we find ourselves, we can use one or another mode and manage this consumption in this way. In the Battery section, within the Settings, we have these options:

  • High performance– The mode that allows the system to operate at maximum capacity, but consumes the most power.
  • Optimized: A balance between performance and power consumption.
  • Average energy savings: Limit some functions of the phone and its applications to reduce consumption.
  • Maximum energy savings: It seeks to save energy as much as possible, thus limiting most functions.

Each one will be able to choose one of the modes to save battery on the phone. In addition, One UI allows choose the Adaptive Power Saver option, which will learn from the use you make of your phone to manage the performance and battery consumption of your device, so that the management will be the best at all times.

One UI Optimizer

Without resorting to one of the power saving modes, Samsung phones with One UI allow reduce battery consumption thanks to its Optimizer function. This function ensures that the system will work more efficiently and is also responsible for managing such energy consumption. What it usually does is close background processes, which consume energy, without us using them. To use it, follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Go into Battery.
  3. Click on the Optimize button.

Also, if you use the search engines within settings, you find a section called Optimize battery use, which allows you to choose which applications we want to optimize their operation on the phone, so that their battery consumption is lower. It is another method with which to optimize the operation of One UI and the battery consumption of the apps.

Screen settings

Ways to reduce battery consumption in One UI 1

The screens of some Samsung phones with One UI, like those of the Galaxy S20, they can generate a high consumption in the phone. A high resolution or a high refresh rate, which will make the battery consumption noticeable. Therefore, we can make certain screen adjustments, which help you spend less energy, which at certain times can be helpful. There are also other options, such as the time that the phone screen remains on when we do not use it, since reducing this time will reduce energy consumption. As well as the brightness of the screen, for example, since this also influences said energy consumption.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Enter Screen.
  3. Reduce the refresh rate or resolution.
  4. Set the brightness.
  5. Sets how long the screen stays on.

One UI dark mode

Related to display settings and options is dark mode. In the case of having an AMOLED or OLED screen on your mobile with One UI, you can use the dark mode to reduce battery consumption. It is an effective method, in addition, the dark mode of the Samsung interface is possibly the best that we find, due to its good integration in the system and applications, in addition to the customization options that it offers us, such as programming its ignition or using the blue light filter of it. The steps to activate this mode are:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Enter Screen.
  3. Activate dark mode.
  4. Customize when to use it.
  5. Activate the blue light filter if you want.

Configure Always on Display

Samsung was one of the first brands to adopt Always on Display, which has improved over the years. Also in One UI we have this function, which is advertised as a function that does not consume much, but in reality you may end up consuming more battery than you thought. In this situation, either we deactivate Always on Display or configure when we want it to be used (schedule certain hours), because this will reduce said energy use.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Enter the Lock Screen section.
  3. Tap Always On Display.
  4. If you want to use it, configure when it should work.
  5. If you don’t want to use it, please disable this feature.

Put apps to idle

One UI idle apps

There are applications on the phone that can consume a lot of battery, more than we should or would like, something that we can easily check. In One UI, Samsung gives us the possibility to put those apps to sleep, which means that they will not consume resources in the background, so that energy consumption will be noticeable on the phone. It is ideal to use it in apps that do not use too much or that consume too many resources.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Go to Device Maintenance.
  3. Tap on Battery.
  4. Go to the Applications Power Management section.
  5. Tap on Inactive apps.
  6. Add the applications you want in that list.
