The Galaxy A53 5G comes with a large 5,000 mAh battery that will last a long time without a charger. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t practice good battery usage habits. There will be times when you don’t have a charger and need to hold on to what little juice you have left. In such situations, you need to know how to push your phone’s battery power to the limit. How to extend the battery life of your Galaxy A53 5G.
There is a handful of ways that you increase your battery mileage; some of them are manual and some are handled by the system. If you employ these methods, just know that the overall performance of the phone will decrease in some areas.
Optimize your display settings
Let’s start off with an easy one. Many functions and bits of hardware drain your phone’s battery, but what drains it the most is the display. Thus, toning down the display is the first step to stretching your battery.
Needless to say, the brighter the display, the more battery usage. Swipe down twice on the home screen to access the brightness slider on the notification shade. Lower the brightness as much as you need to. If you don’t want to do that manually, tap on the three dots on the side of the slider and activate Adaptive brightness. This will adjust your brightness automatically based on the light in your surroundings.
Reduce refresh rate
Next, you’ll want to lower your screen’s refresh rate. Out of the box, your phone’s display will refresh at 120 times a second. This is twice as much as typical phones, and that causes more energy drain. Go to your system settings and go to the display page. There will be a button called Motion Smoothness. Tap it and you’ll see the option to lower your refresh rate to 60Hz.
If you have an Always On Display (AOD) on your phone, just know that it actually uses a bit of battery power over time. Go to your system settings and go to the Lock screen page. From there, go down to the Always On Display page and toggle it off.
Completely embrace the dark theme
Along with making the screen darker, you can make the software as a whole darker. This will further reduce the battery usage for your Galaxy A53 5G. Applying a dark theme will make everything in your software darker from the menus to app icons to the background in most apps. Instead of white, everything will be a dark gray.
Go to your display settings again and the theme settings should be at the very top with some graphics. Tap the option that says dark, and your software will automatically go dark.
Restrict apps’ background usage
While the display is the main culprit for battery drain, apps working overtime in the background also contribute significantly to battery drain. When you download and install an app, functions may be running in the background (even if the app is closed). Some apps have a good reason to run in the background, like music streaming apps and calendar apps.
However, there are a number of apps whose background features you can do without. It’s kind of hard to imagine why I would need TikTok in the background. You can reduce these processes and help save more battery power.
Go to your systems, battery and device care, battery, and then background usage limits. There you have a few options. First, there is a toggle that allows your system to hibernate apps that you don’t use for a while. Basically, if you don’t open an app in a certain number of weeks or months, the system restricts the background processes of the app. If you want to go in and handle the apps yourself, you can.
Put apps to sleep/deep sleep manually
If you want to take things into your own hands, decide which apps you want to hold back. When you do that, figure out whether you want to put the apps to sleep or deep sleep. Putting the apps to sleep will only allow the app to run in the background on occasion. This is for apps that you might want to run every now and then.
However, if you want to block an app from running in the background altogether, then you can put them to deep sleep. This will stop the app from working in the background completely. This means that you won’t get any notifications or updates to the app. The app will only function when it’s being used.
Make use of the adaptive battery feature
Now, go back to the battery settings and, instead of going to the background usage limits, go to More battery settings. The first option you see there is the option to turn on adaptive battery. With this feature, the system will analyze your phone usage patterns and adapt the battery usage to accommodate for them. This might not help if you’re stuck on a long trip, as it takes time for the system to learn your habits, but it’s a good thing to have in the long run.
Use Power saving mode
Most of the methods mentioned before were manual, but Power saving mode handles a lot of that stuff for you. It’s like an all-in-one solution to help you extend your battery power. Go to your battery settings like I mentioned before and go to the Power saving page. Uptop, you’ll see a master switch. You can flip it and be done with it or you can customize the mode to your liking.
There are some settings that you can adjust below the switch. One will let you choose whether you want to turn off the AOD. The next option will let you limit the CPU performance to only 70%. If you want to save battery, but you don’t want the performance throttled, you can flip this off. Under that, you’ll have the option to decrease the screen brightness to 10% when Power saver mode is active.
Under that, there will be an option to limit the apps and home screen. This means that all of the background processes will be cut, the Edge panels will be disabled, and the theme will be turned dark. Power saver mode is a combination of the aforementioned methods with a few added on. With these tools, your Galaxy A53 5G is ready for the long haul with its battery.
