Have you noticed that the apps on your Samsung phone are immediately disabled as soon as they are running in the background? It has to do with the battery saving features that Samsung has built into the One UI case. Fortunately this can be adjusted, in this article we explain how to do it.
Battery saver on Samsung phones
Samsung’s Android software package allows apps to be disabled by default when not in active use. With this block, Samsung ensures that the power consumption of applications is limited. So that’s not even a bad measure of a phone’s battery life. Still, the battery saver in One UI can have unwanted effects. Take notifications, for example: some Android apps are limited by battery saving so they can’t send notifications to the user, or only too late.
Another side effect is how Samsung immediately closes apps as soon as you quit them. After closing an app, the battery saver is applied immediately, which means the apps must load again upon restart. While apps typically only take a few seconds to load, it can cause irritation if you have to switch between apps often. Fortunately, this can be fixed, we show you how to fix this problem in eight steps below.
Turn off battery saver
Below we show the steps that apply to One UI 3.0 or higher. Devices with One UI 2.0 or One UI 2.5 can have similar settings – with the same effect – but the location of these settings differs between One UI versions. If you have a device with One UI 2.0 or One UI 2.5, you can probably follow some of the steps to turn off battery saver.
