If you own a Samsung Galaxy S4, you most definitely have faced a number of nagging issues regarding the device’s performance, display or accessibility. There is no doubt the Samsung galaxy S4 is one of the most powerful smartphones available in the market today. But if you sit on your back and expect everything to be flawlessly cool, you might end up being disappointed. In this article, we’ll highlight simple approaches to resolve some of the most common Samsung galaxy S4 problems that might be related to the battery. Quick Battery Drain So your battery is draining super quickly? Indeed, this is one of the most common Samsung Galaxy S4 problems. If you find that your device isn’t holding any charge, it’s time to act. Chances are that something is wrong with your device’s battery, but before you come to this conclusion – you’ll want to check to make sure that a mob of apps are not the problem. To check what apps are sucking the life out of your battery, simply navigate to Settings, and then select the Battery option. This will give you detailed information regarding what applications you need to stop, or uninstall. At the same time, keep your networks (Mobile Data, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) off when you’re not using them. Your phone’s display could also contribute to battery level deterioration. To resolve this, reduce the display brightness and reduce the screen time-out length. Device Overheating If our Samsung galaxy s4 is overheating, you probably are pushing it to the limits of performance – which is not a bad thing at all. If the device is getting too hot too fast, something might again be wrong with the battery. Consider plucking the battery off and placing it on a cool surface. If the battery’s spinning freely when you rotate it, there could be a problem. Consider getting a replacement battery if it keeps on overheating even after you put it back on. You might also want to take your device to a repair shop if the overheating problem persists. An application called Clean Master (by Cheetah Mobile) will likely help you fix device overheating without removing the battery. Device Restarting If your Samsung Galaxy S4 keeps on restarting, something could be extremely wrong. There might be a big physical problem with the battery, or the last updates you installed are causing problems. The fault might also lie with the software itself. To start with, update all the apps and android version to make sure that they’re not the cause of the problem. If you have added a new memory card recently, this could also be the problem. Consider removing it to see whether the problem ends after restarting the device.
