Sometimes you might find the battery of your Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G draining quickly. Here are some tips to make your device battery last longer.

Check battery draining apps

Check battery draining apps

One of the factors that can cause battery draining issues are apps that are running. You can check which apps installed in your phone drains the battery the most.

Any app on top of the list is usually what’s draining your Fold3 battery life. You can check if there is a new update for the app that addresses this issue or you can simply force stop it or uninstall it if you don’t use it much.

Checking battery usage

Tap on Battery and device care.

Restart your device

Restart your device

If you haven’t restarted your phone in awhile then I suggest you do so now.

Your phone will usually have several apps running in the background which will drain the battery life. Restarting the phone will close all of these running apps and clear your device memory.

Restarting the device

Turn off the Fold3 by pressing and holding the Bixby button and the volume down button on the side of the device.

Choose Power off.

Choose Power off again. The device will turn off.

Wait for a few seconds.

Press and hold the Bixby button on the side of the device to turn on the Samsung phone.

After restarting the Z Fold3 5G try to observe its operation and check if the battery life improves.

Disable services you don’t use

Disable services you don't use

You should consider turning off the WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS of your Fold3when you are not actively using them. These features have the tendency to continuously keep scanning for connections which will drain your battery life. To turn them off, swipe down the quick settings panel and tap the corresponding icon to disable.

Adjust screen brightness

Adjust screen brightness

The brighter the screen of the Fold3 the more battery life it will consume. It is therefore a good idea to balance your device brightness to fit your current environment.

You can do this manually or you can enable adaptive brightness.

Adjusting screen brightness manually

Open Settings

Tap on Display

Adjust the brightness on the Brightness scale to a lower level

Enable Adaptive brightness

Open Settings

Tap on Display

Turn on the Adaptive brightness switch

Turn off Always On Display

The Always On Display feature on your device lets you view the time, date, notifications, and missed calls just to name a few even when the screen is turned off.

Although this is quite useful it can also drain the battery life which is why you should consider turning it off.

Disable Always On Display

Tap the Settings icon.

Tap Lock Screen.

Make sure the status switch beside Always On Display is turned off.

Reduce screen timeout

The screen timeout is an option on the Fold3 to turn off the screen automatically to save battery life. The default setting is 30 seconds however you can lower this further to 15 seconds. The lower the setting the more battery life is saved.

Navigate to Settings

Tap on Display

Tap on Screen timeout

Select 15 seconds

Turn on Dark Mode

Dark Mode switches your Fold3 settings to a darker theme. This is beneficial for devices with AMOLED displays such as the Fold3 since the individual pixels in a dark background will not use battery life.

Turn on Dark Mode

Tap the Settings icon.

Tap Display.

Tap the Dark option.
