The battery saver on the LG G3 isn’t as intense as what Samsung has on the Galaxy S5 – their Ultra Power Saving Mode – but it will help save some juice when you’re running low on power, which is what we really want and need, right? With LG’s battery saver, you can have it set to turn on at a specific percentage, and have it turn off various things like Auto-Sync, WiFi, Bluetooth, Vibrate on taps, turn down the brightness, shorten the screen timeout and turn off the notification LED. While it’d be nice to be able to slow down the CPU as well, these are still a lot of variables that will help save you some juice. I’ve turned on the battery saver a few times when I got below 30% and it did quite well actually. Standby got even better.
How to turn on Battery Saver
- Pull down your notification tray
- Scroll over the toggles til you see “Battery Saver” and tap on it
- Go into Settings
- Tap on “General”
- Scroll down to battery
- Tap on battery
- Now Tap on the toggle for the Battery Saver
As for my settings, I keep auto-sync on, But let it turn off WiFi, Bluetooth, Vibrate on tap, and shorten the screen timeout. The Brightness is on, but I usually have it under 20% anyways, so that doesn’t make a huge deal for me. It does make a bit of a difference, and can mean that you’ll have enough juice until you can get home or get somewhere to plug in the LG G3.
So that’s battery saver. We’ve got plenty more LG G3 how to’s and content coming up though. So make sure you stay tuned to Android Headlines for all the details.
