However, users have shown a marked notion that there are some phones that will drain the battery faster than others, even when used and charged in identically. Now it seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has made it to this list of battery-draining smartphones, but is there any truth to these claims?

There are apps that run processes in the background even if they are not being used. Some of these processes include searching for updates and other similar functions, and these will increase the rate of battery drain.

For example, some chat apps like WhatsApp and Facebook do use a lot of your battery resources. You only need to check the battery in your settings and see just how much these apps consume in terms of power. Make sure that you turn off these processes when you access each app, or simply stop the sync feature on the Note 8.

Many people love the GPS setting on their phones and are not willing to turn them off. With the Power Saving Mode activated, the GPS settings will be switched on and off by the phone according to the use. When it is not required, it will be switched off.

The Power Saving Mode also does other things that slow the speed of the processor. The backlit keys will be blocked, the display frame rate will also lower. This means less processor power, and therefore less pressure on the Galaxy Note 8 battery.

Tethering is another connectivity feature that you should use sparingly. When you tether the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, you basically use the resources continuously. Actually, this is one thing that will reduce the life of your battery, irrespective of which phone model you use.
