How To Fix Poor Battery Life On Samsung Galaxy S10

You want to help your Galaxy S10 battery life last longer, then you can make some quick adjustments to do so. After tweaking your phone, you will no longer have to charge your phone every few hours. Here, I’m going to show you a few tips and tricks to improve the battery life of your Samsung Galaxy S10.

Solutions To Fix Samsung Galaxy S10 Battery Life Issues

Check Your Phone Battery Usage

If you see your Galaxy S10 Battery life drains faster than it should be, you can first check out the Battery Usage section in Settings. Here is how to check which apps are consuming too much battery. You can force close or uninstall the misbehaving apps. To access the Battery Usage section, simply head to Settings > Device Care > Battery.

Close All Background Apps

The opened apps still keep running in the background even when you are not using them. If you keep an app running too long in the background, it will keep updating the content. Whenever you need to use the app, it will open faster since it does not need to reload the contents from the beginning. While it is efficient, your phone will drain so fast

Reboot Your Galaxy S10

Although this method sounds a little stupid, it is effective in ruling out common issues, like the issues related to battery life. To reboot your Galaxy S10, simply hold down the Power button and tap on Restart.

Disable Tap To Wake Feature

There is a lot number of Samsung Galaxy S10 users complaining (on Samsung US community forum) about the accidental taps while putting their phone in the pocket, which causes the battery to drain so fast. A few reported that their Galaxy S10 even recorded when being in the pocket. If you are encountering the same issue, you should disable the Tap To Wake feature on your phone.

Update Your Phone To The Latest Build


Updating your Galaxy phone software is a potential solution to fix poor battery life issues. The update usually includes the security patch as well as bug fixes that can improve the battery life of your Galaxy S10.  You can check if there is a Software update for your phone by going to Settings > Software Update > Download and install. Before proceeding, remember to prepare ample storage, at least 50% battery, and a stable Wi-Fi connection to download the update.

Use a Black Wallpaper

Another good solution to save up your Galaxy battery life is to use a black wallpaper. That’s because the AMOLED display on your phone works differently than other LCD-screen phones. It’s more efficient to display black color, instead of vivid colors. Pixels don’t have to switch on individually to display a black image.

After you download your favorite black wallpaper, go into Settings > Wallpapers and apply it. While it’s a small difference, when you combine it with everything else, it adds up.

Enable Power Saving Mode

If you are in a situation where you are unable to your phone, but the battery level is too low, you can then enable power saving mode on your phone save the battery life to the maximum. Just head to Settings > Device care > Battery and toggle the Power Saving Mode switch to ON.

Boot Your Phone Into Safe Mode


If the fast battery drain issue only appeared after you installed certain apps, you can try to boot your phone in the Safe Mode to check it. With Safe Mode, you will start up your Galaxy S10 without third-party apps. Once it’s the Safe Mode, you should also check the behavior of your device battery. If battery life is draining abnormally, it means that one of the apps is the main culprit. You can uninstall the third party apps one by one and should start with the ones you have recently installed, or perform a factory reset. Here are steps to boot your Galaxy phone into the Safe Mode:

  1. Power off your Galaxy S10 first
  2. Next, hold down the Power button until the “Power off” message shows up on the screen
  3. Tap and hold on “Power off” until you see “Safe Mode” prompt. After that, tap on it to confirm
  4. Wait for the process to complete
  5. When it’s done, you will see the “Safe mode” letters in the left part of the screen.

Perform A Factory Data Reset


If you have tried all the above methods, but your Samsung Galaxy S10 battery still drains fast, then performing Factory Data Reset is the last resort. To do this method, just head to Settings > General Management > Reset and tap on Factory data reset. Tap on the popup again, enter your phone password, and select Delete all.
