close unnecessary running apps:
There are many apps running in the background even when you don’t use them. Find out these and close them. Third party applications are one of the biggest reasons – possibly after communications – responsible for a reduced battery life. Go to your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 edge Settings and in the battery session, look at what apps are eating out the most of your battery life.
Turn off radio communications when not needed:
In times when you are in no need of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth services, NFC, GPS, or even the cellular data, never forget to turn these services off. These services slow down the devices by constantly updating and hence draining battery life. Simply turn these off from the Settings whenever you don’t need them and make a habit of only switching them on when you actually need these services.
– Disable location services:
We don’t necessarily need the location services unless we are using maps or any other app using the location. It’s easier to enable location when you are using any such apps. Consider turning it off otherwise to increase the battery life. Go to quick Settings and disable location services.
