FIX 5: Disable RAM Plus

This feature is nothing more than a gimmick, at least for the higher-end devices. For the unaware, using RAM Plus, you could allocate how much internal storage to be used as RAM. Well, at least on paper, it should boast the app performance speed, and it might actually do for some lower-end phones, but most of today’s devices don’t even require this feature as we have more than sufficient amount of RAM.

Moroever, having a service constantly running in the background will only lead to battery drain drain and overheating. For some reason though, Samsung believes that it’s best to enable this feature across all its devices. However, let’s put an end to that practice by disabling it right away. Here’s how it could be done:

  1. Head over to Settings > Battery and Device Care > Memory.
  2. Then turn off the RAM Plus using the toggle at the top right.
  3. Now wait for a few hours and then check out the results.s24 ultra battery drain

FIX 6: Put Apps to Deep Sleep

If you aren’t frequently interacting with an app, then you could limit its background capabilities by putting it in either a sleep or a deep sleep state. This in turn will help your device gain a few additional percentage of battery juice. Do note that if you choose Deep Sleep, then the app won’t run in the background, you’ll have to manually open it so that it gets synced with the recent changes,  Here’s how it could be done:

  1. Head over to Settings > Battery and Device Care.
  2. Then select Battery> Background usage limits.
  3. Now go to Deep Sleep, hit the plus icon, and select desired apps.s24 ultra battery drain

FIX 7: Enable WiFi Power Saving Mode

The Wi-Fi power-saving mode reduces battery usage by analyzing Wi-Fi usage as well as traffic patterns. So let’s enable this feature using the below-listed steps and check if it works out in our favor or not.

  1. Head over to Settings Connections WiFi.
  2. Then go to More Options > Intelligent WiFi.
  3. Now enable the Wi-Fi power-saving mode.Galaxy S24 Ultra Battery Drain

FIX 8: Enable Battery Saver

Samsung beholds quite a few battery saver tweaks, including the likes of turning off AOD, limiting CPU speed to 70%, and decreasing the brightness by 10%. Apart from that, it will prevent numerous apps from carrying out their functionalities in the background [such as sync, notifications, and updates], all of which will translate to the saving of a considerable amount of battery life, though at the cost of the aforementioned features not working along the expected lines. So if that’s well and good, then let’s put this tweak to the test and check out the results.

  1. Head over to Settings > Battery > Power Saving.
  2. Then enable the toggle next to the following three:
    Turn off AOD
    Limit CPU speed to 70%
    Decrease brightness by 10%
