    Default Battery Saving Tricks

    Anyone know any battery saving tricks on the Tab S 8.4? Aside from turning on the battery saving option and lowering the brightness.

    Thanks.

    One thing specific to super amoled screen is that the darker the displayed content, the less battery it uses.

    The screen use no battery displaying pure black, and use max battery displaying pure white.

    So one thing is to use dark background, use dark mode for the apps when possible. If you use Firefox, it also has a black and white display add on to make most Website use pure black background.

    What do you mean by "Dark Mode"?

    Go into app settings, some app will have a dark mode to display large portion of ui in primarily black colors.

    Such as textra, and android central app.

    It's app specific, some have it, others don't. So you will need to fiddle with each app's settings, not android system's settings.

    I know textra, Android Central app, aqua mail have it, and most Google app don't.

    At my screenshot above, it's from textra, where you can set the background to black.

    I would suggest, whenever you choose among apps of similar functions, use the one that has a dark mode.

    Settings/WiFi/menu (3 dots upper right)/advanced/keep WiFi running during sleep/ set to never.

    Uninstall/disable/turn off a few apps you don't use that might be running in the background.

    Use darker wallpapers vs white or bright wallpapers
