    Hi all,

    New to the site. I picked up a Galaxy Tab S3 recently and absolutely love it. That said, I'm trying to get the most out of the battery life.

    One question first: if I turn off Sync in the main android pulldown menu, what does that stop? Contacts, email, calendar? Or everything? What's the best way to handle battery life on this tablet?

    I have power saver on, Bluetooth and Location off.... I have the smart stay feature off... What else should I be doing? Thanks!!

    How long do you expect to get from the battery? I have the Tab S3 and EASILY get a full day out of it with Bluetooth turned on and 2 email accounts syncing. What are you doing on the device that consumes battery?

    As a point of reference - my 3 year-old Galaxy Note 10.1 was needing charge several times a day with the same use (and a larger battery).

    I'm not sure what I expect... But I've already drained a full charge once, and I got it 48 hours ago. I just wanted to know what the Sync in the drop down menu does and what it shuts off... I'm just wanting to make the most of the battery and eliminate settings that are not necessary (like Smart Stay)
