Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a 2,800 mAh battery, which is considered a big upgrade over its predecessor, which was equipped with a 2,600 mAh one.
The new battery may not seem to be very powerful, but Samsung has employed three new battery saving modes in the device to make sure it lasts more than we can think of, including NavExtend, WebExtend and GameExtend.
For those of you who can’t recall, Samsung Galaxy S5 already comes with an Ultra Battery Saving Mode that turns your display black and white, and improves the battery timing of the Samsung Galaxy S5 to a great extent. But that’s not all, the other three battery saving technologies implemented by the Korean OEM can provide Galaxy S5 owners some extra juice to last through the day.
WebExtend offers users with 25 percent more battery by employing “the right graphic processor overload versus the browser requirements.” As the name suggests, GameExtend is all about managing power used by intense applications such as games, and can offer users with up to 50 percent improvement compared to the Galaxy Note 3.
Lastly, NavExtend can improve the battery life by up to 25 percent when using navigation apps and GPS by determining the “right graphic processor overload versus the GPS requirements.”
These modes appear to be pretty decent, and should offer users with extended battery life, a problem that has haunted smartphone users from some time.
