This tip would save a drastic amount of battery because all the unnecessary features that are always on in the mobile set settings when turned off saves a lot now these are the Wifi like if you are travelling and you know your handset won’t find any Wifi so in this case keep it off from searching. Turn your Bluetooth off, turn your gestures off which are not needed and above all the brightness should not be auto it should be controlled manually keep it dim.
4- Disable all the bloat
Bloatware and unnecessary features on TouchWiz on Samsung’s S6 and edge has been reduced up to 30%, but still there are many bloats which need to be disabled in order to save the battery and the apps are disabled in settings>> Applications>> Application manager and tap on the application you need to disable which is running and has no use.

In power saving mode you can use each and every function of your Galaxy but only the screen brightness, display frame rate, vibration feedback and CPU speed in minimum to increase battery life if you have to go through all day 24 hours it can go through the day with power saving mode if the battery is reasonable.
In Ultra-power saving mode almost all the third party features are automatically disabled and mobile can go through the day with just a single bar of battery.
6- Turn off location services and Google
Location services are really a big cause of drinking the juice out of your battery it should be kept off because it keeps on determining the location and for that it keeps on searching your location every 5 minutes and it plays a big role this way to drain the battery.
Turning off Google Now will also reduce the abnormal battery drain from ‘Google services’ that many Galaxy S6 and S6 edge users have been experiencing. To turn it off go to Settings >> Cards and toggle the ‘Show cards’ option to off.
Turn off location services go to Settings >> Privacy and Safety >> Location and then toggle the switch to off.
