Samsung Galaxy S20 Battery Replacement

Compared to previous flagship phones like the Galaxy S10, the Samsung Galaxy S20 series features an impressively hefty battery. With the S20 battery capacity at 4,000 mAh and the S20 Ultra battery capacity reaching 5,000 mAh, a new S20 model should have more than enough battery life to last throughout the day. If you’ve noticed that your battery is no longer lasting like it once did, don’t panic. Follow the guide below to address your S20 battery issues.

Common Battery Problems on Samsung Galaxy S20 Phones

Over time, it’s not uncommon for a smartphone’s battery to become less efficient. You may start noticing your battery drains very quickly, and in extreme cases, it may seem that you need to keep your phone plugged in at all times. In rare cases, you may notice that your S20 battery is swelling, causing a bulge in the back of your device. Before opting for an S20 battery replacement, try troubleshooting the problem to extend your existing battery life.

How to Troubleshoot Samsung Galaxy S20 Battery Issues

The Samsung Galaxy S20’s battery life depends on several factors, including time used throughout the day, charging cycles, apps being used, and screen brightness. Get the most out of your S20’s battery life by using these battery troubleshooting tips.

  • Use Samsung’s Power Saver mode.

Turn on Power Saver mode when you need to optimize your S20’s battery life. To enable this valuable battery saving feature, go to Settings > Device Care > Battery. Then, select Power Mode and choose between several options, including High Performance, Optimized, Medium power saving, Maximum power saving, and Adaptive power saving.

  • Opt for the S20’s Dark Mode.

Dark Mode can be a true lifesaver for those trying to squeeze every last bit of battery life out of their Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 FE 5G. Dark mode not only looks super cool, but it also uses less power than your regular bright display. To turn on Dark Mode, go to Settings > Display > Dark.

  • Purchase a charging case.

Gone are the days of bulky, inconvenient charging cases and external batteries. As battery technology continues to advance, charging cases are becoming slimmer and external batteries are becoming lighter. Try using a charging case to give your phone a mid-day boost when needed. Alternatively, carry an external battery in your bag when circumstances are dire, and you cannot get to a charger.
