    Disable Connectivity Features:

    NOTE: You can disable the phone’s connectivity features when not actively in use to avoid unnecessary network scans and potentially improve battery life.

    1. Open “Settings”
    2. Go to “Apps & Notifications”
    3. Switch to “See all apps” and select the desired app
    4. Tap “Uninstall” > “OK”

    Keep the OS Up To Date:

    NOTE: OS updates can improve battery life and thus it’s recommended to keep the OS up to date at all times.

    1. Swipe the home screen up from the bottom
    2. Launch “Settings”
    3. Go to “System” > “System update”
    4. Tap “Check for update” and if applicable, follow the prompts to download and install available updates
