The Android 5.0 Lollipop update has brought a host of new features, such as Material Design, to the Galaxy Note 3 , but not everything has been positive. Many users have started to complain of battery problems. It seems that once the phablet is updated, the autonomy does not perform as before. The truth is that it is a fairly common problem when users update to a major version of Android . Most of the time, it is not the update itself that causes the inconvenience, but the applications and other services.
With this in mind, we are going to try to increase the battery life of your Galaxy Note 3 . The first recommendation that we always make to people who suffer from a short life on their phones, is to check third-party applications. These have the ability to consume a lot of autonomy, regardless of the software that is running. If you think an app is the problem, try reinstalling it to see if that fixes it. If the problem persists, try uninstalling it to see if that has a positive effect. If you can't figure out which app might be causing the problems, you'll need to boot the Galaxy Note 3 into safe mode .
This option will disable third-party applications and allow you to isolate those that could be causing the problems. This is how you can boot your Galaxy Note 3 in safe mode:
- Turn off the device. Then press and hold the power button and the volume key
- Once it boots up, you can release the power button, but still hold the volume key down
- When you have successfully booted into safe mode you will notice, you will see the text "safe mode" in the lower left corner of the screen.
Another thing you can try is to restart the Galaxy Note 3, especially if you haven't done it for a long time. This will clear the cache and you may see your battery life miraculously increase. To restart the device, press and hold the power button, confirm that you want to turn it off, and then press and hold the power button to turn it back on.
If apps aren't the problem, and a simple reboot of the Galaxy Note 3 hasn't fixed anything, it's time to dig a little deeper. Our experience tells us, that disabling some services when not in use tends to have a positive impact on battery life. Therefore, we recommend that you turn off the WiFi connectivity when you do not need it , as well as Bluetooth, NFC, GPS .. . Another thing we've noticed is that having poor coverage could be one of the reasons for battery life issues. When your Galaxy Note 3It has to search a lot to give a signal, this causes much more energy to be consumed, so keep that in mind when you are in areas with poor access to the network. Consider in these cases, putting your phone in airplane mode.
