And that’s what we’re here to help you with. If you have issues with your Galaxy Note 8, here’s the information you need to hopefully fix them.
Bad battery life
You won’t find many smartphone owners who are happy with their battery life. Even a brand new phone with advanced power-saving features and efficient specs like the Note 8 will have issues for heavy users. If you’re having problems with battery life, consider these basic tips to help your phone last a little longer.
Use power saving mode: Power saving mode strikes a good balance between keeping your phone usable for its core features but without the background processes or data access that can drain battery rapidly. It’s customizable, but by default will lower your screen resolution and brightness as well in order to save what battery capacity you have left.
Look for power-hungry apps: A bad app (or three) could really take down your battery over the course of the day. Go into the Device maintenance settings and look for individual apps using more than a couple percentage points of your battery over the course of your day. If the app is using battery when you’re not actively using it, check out its settings to see if you can limit that — or potentially uninstall it if it continues to misbehave.
Turn off unused radios: If you’re not actively using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth for a while, you can turn them off to save battery. To get the full effect, To go the extra mile, head into your phone’s Settings, Connections, Location, and tap on Improve accuracy — here, you can choose to turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth scanning, which by default happen even when the radios are turned “off.”
Last resort: A battery pack: No matter what you do, your battery may drain too quickly during the heaviest of days. Consider picking up a battery pack to get you through those critical days without losing your phone. Look for one with Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0 for the fastest top-ups on the go.
