How to Fix Battery Draining Issues on Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Note 20

Lower Down Screen Brightness

I don’t think this trick needs to be highlighted while discussing the battery saving tips for Android phones. Higher the brightness level, the more the battery consumption. When you’re staying under the roof, kindly keep the brightness of the screen below 50%.

You might be annoyed by adjusting the brightness every now and then, instead, turn on the Adaptive Brightness feature of the Note 20, Note 20 Ultra. Adaptive brightness settings will automatically increase and decrease the display brightness depending upon the environment.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap on Display.
  3. Turn On Adaptive Brightness.

Disable Always On Display

Always On Display comes in handy, however, drains a lot of battery even though you’re not using the device. You can make more out of the Galaxy Note 20 battery, by turning off the Always On Display.

  1. Go to the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap the Lock screen.
  3. Toggle Off Always On Display.

Switch to 60Hz Refresh Rate (Only for Galaxy Note 20 Ultra)

Like Adaptive Brightness, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra features Adaptive Refresh Rate, which automatically adjusts the refresh rate up to 120Hz as per the need. Although, on normal usage, there are good chances that Adaptive Brightness could eat up the battery. Instead, switch to Standard 60Hz Refresh Rate to avoid unnecessary battery draining.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Swipe down and tap Motion and smoothness.
  3. Select Standard

Turn On Power Mode and Adaptive Power Saving

The Power Mode is a one-stop solution to optimize the application and settings of the Note 20, Note 20 Ultra. It all starts with the Display Resolution, you can double up the battery lifespan, by changing the display resolution and turning on the Power Mode.

At the same time, turn on Adaptive power-saving and let the device tracks the usage patterns and optimize the phone for the best.

  1. Navigate to the Settings app.
  2. Tap Device care.
  3. Tap Battery.
  4. From the Power mode, choose the Medium power saving or Maximum power saving.
  5. Also, turn on Adaptive power saving.

Remove the Power Hungry Apps

If you’re an active Facebook user, then I’d advise you to delete the Facebook App from the device, till now, we’ve fixed many device’s battery draining problems by uninstalling the Facebook App. Apart from this, use the Settings app to track the applications that are using the most power, even if you’re not using and remove them.

  1. Go to the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap Device care.
  3. Select Battery.
  4. Check which apps are draining the power even though not being used? And delete them.

Disable Wi-Fi, Mobile data, Data Roaming

The network connections like LTE and Data Roaming are the biggest energy hogs, usually, when we are out of town, we need Data roaming, to use the LTE. However, while traveling around the woods or mountain area, signal bars decreases to one or two, which means, the device will consume more and more power due to poor signal.

If you’re not using the device during night time, it’s better to Turn Off Data roaming, Mobile data, and Wi-Fi temporarily.

  1. Swipe down the Notifications bar, and tap on Wi-Fi, and Mobile data to disable it.
  2. While, for Data roaming, open the Settings app > Connections > Mobile networks > Turn Off Data roaming.

Disable Location, Wi-Fi Calling, Bluetooth

Often Location, Wi-Fi Calling, and Bluetooth are useful in spare time. So, there is no point to keep them enabled all day. Pull down the Notifications bar and turn Off the Location, Wi-Fi Calling, and Bluetooth if not needed.

Turn Off Vibrate for Notifications and Prefer Headphones to Listen to Songs/Videos

Vibrations for Notifications and Phone Calls is something that is not necessary and can save a considerable amount of battery if you receive tonnes of notifications and calls. Besides, always prefer the headphones while listening to the songs and videos, this will cut the battery consumption by half.

  1. Go to the Settings app.
  2. Tap Sounds and vibrations.
  3. Select Sound
  4. Turn Off Vibrate while ringing.

Turn On Dark Mode

Indeed, the Dark Mode is one of the greatest supreme features that everyone turns On after buying the new phone. But, if you haven’t enabled the Dark Mode yet, do it now. The black theme is especially added to reduce the battery usage, and eye-straining while using the device for a long time. Concurrently, avoid using bright and dynamic wallpapers.

  1. Navigate to the Settings app.
  2. Tap Display.
  3. Turn On Dark Mode.

Update the Software

Keeping the Samsung Note 20, and Note 20 Ultra updated to the latest version fixes almost all the minor bugs and errors. It’s recommended to update the device to the latest firmware.

  1. Open the Settings
  2. Tap Advanced features.
  3. Turn On Reduce animations.

Turn Off Life to Wake

Most of the time the Samsung phone’s battery keeps dying due to the screen automatically wakes up inside the pocket or even when you don’t need to use the device. Though, Lift to wake, comes in handy, every time you don’t need to press the power button or double-tap to wake the screen, at the cost of the battery.

  1. Launch the Settings app.
  2. Tap Advanced features.
  3. Hit Motion & gestures.
  4. Disable Lift to wake.

Decrease the Screen Timeout

Aside from brightness and other settings, Screen Timeout plays a major role in improving battery life without compromising any feature. Most of the people don’t press the power button to lock the device and put it on the table after using it, and the screen stays on for the set screen timeout. Instead, select the lower screen timeout like 30 seconds or 15 seconds.

  1. Go to the Settings App.
  2. Tap Display.
  3. Find and tap the Screen timeout.
  4. Choose 30 seconds or 15 seconds.

Change Screen Resolution

Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra features HD+, FHD+, and WQHD+ screen resolution options, needless to say, but the high-resolution display absorbs more battery. If you’re using the WQHD+, then switch to FHD+ or HD+.

  1. Launch the Settings App.
  2. Select Display.
  3. Go with Screen resolution.
  4. Choose FHD+ or HD+ for optimal performance.
