Extending Your Battery Life
Initial Device Configuration
Active applications, light levels, Bluetooth usage, and GPS functionality all act to drain your battery. The following is
a list of helpful tips that can help conserve your battery power:
● Reduce the time your backlight stays on.
1. Select a language from the associated field. English is the default language.
Note: If you are visually impaired or have difficulty hearing, tap Accessibility to configure the accessibility
settings.
● Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.
2. Tap Start and follow the on‑screen setup instructions.
● Turn Wi‑Fi off when not in use.
● Deactivate your GPS functionality when not needed. Most applications using this function will periodically
query the GPS satellites for your current location; each query drains your battery.
Note: You may be prompted with a notification that your activation is completed. Enabling Google location
services can drain battery power.
● Do not wait until your battery is completely depleted before charging your device. Repeating this process
of a complete discharge and recharge can over time reduce the storage capacity of any battery.
For more information, refer to “Creating a Samsung Account” on page 18.
● Use the Power Saving feature to deactivate some hardware and interface functions.
Note: Read the on-screen Dropbox set up and registration information regarding new services.
● Check the Battery use screen to review what features or functions have been consuming your battery
resources.
● Check the Running Services and close any unnecessary applications.
● Use the Task Manager feature to end/shutdown background applications that are still running. These
minimized applications can, over time, cause your device to “slow down”.
● Animated wallpapers use processing power, memory, and more power. Change your Live Wallpaper to a
non‑animated Wallpaper gallery or Gallery image.

To turn the device on:
► Press and hold
Power/End until the device switches on.

Note: Your device’s internal antenna is located along the top back of the device. Do not block the antenna;
doing so may affect signal quality and may cause the device to operate at a higher power level than is
necessary.
3. Enter a unique device name.
Important! The device name is also used to provide an identification for your device’s Bluetooth and
Wi-Fi Direct names.
4. Read the on‑screen Collect diagnostics information.
Note: This software collects only diagnostic data from your device so that customer service technicians can
better troubleshoot issues with your device.
5. Select either More info... (to read additional information) or Close to close the message screen.
Important! Selecting Close only closes the current description screen and does not disable data collection.
