New to S5, I’m looking for tips to save battery life. It was never a problem with my S2, but now I find I’m down to 25% at the end of the day when I used to rarely go below 60%. Is there a way to gauge which functions are burning the most energy?
Mine starts losing apps in the dock and certain background services crash if I go past 7. Siri eventually acts like there's no connection to the iPhone or Wifi and Dictation fails until a reboot once that occurs. Either WatchOS 6.1.1 failed somewhere or my particular S5 has a big memory leak/RAM management issue. It won't show more than 8 apps in the dock, eventually it just shows 6 or 4 like a few dropped off/crashed. My S3 running the same OS, however, can manage 10. Keep in mind mine is set to show recent, not favorites in the dock.I have ten apps in the dock and about the same number of watch faces (with lots of complications) on my S5, no goofy behaviour here, with Siri or anything else. I probably don’t get 2 days battery, but I just put it on the charger when I’ve time to top it up, usually morning and evening as I sleep track too.
