Back in January, Samsung Electronics launched the Galaxy S21. Our latest flagship phone is packed full of amazing features: from its cameras, which can take video in 8K, to its 5G capability and its super smooth 120Hz display, it’s pretty amazing. The S21 also comes with Super-Fast Charging, which gives you hours of power with just minutes of charging.
In fact, the battery is one of the S21’s best features: it can get you through a whole day, and well into the night. This means that you can keep using your phone non-stop, without having to plug it in until you get home. However, you might want your battery to last even longer so that you can make the most of even more of the S21’s features without worrying about charging. If this is your case, then this hack is for you.
