With a huge capacity 2800mAh lithium ion battery powering the new Samsung Galaxy S5 (S4 had a 2600mAh battery), it’s easy to get a full day’s use out-of-the-box without doing any device settings tweaks at all. This is superb. Google’s KitKat OS update also plays major role in the S5’s increased endurance. As most of you know, I use a lot of social media on a day-to-day basis which means a lot of background data updates via mobile data and wireless – most smartphones are dead in a few hours. With the Galaxy S5 I’ve been able to get a day and a half consistently. Huge difference compared to the S4 where I was only able to get 8-9 hours max. I’ve written this post to help you get even more hours out of the S5 battery by doing some minor tweaks.
