One of the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s main areas for development is battery life, but there’s a bump behind the hood. On the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4, Samsung has added a performance profile that increases battery life.
A new Performance Profile area has been added to the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4’s settings. Inside of Standard and Light, there are two choices. The Enhanced Processing toggle that was included in earlier One UI versions appears to be replaced by this.
On the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4, the new performance profiles are all about striking a balance between performance and battery life. According to Samsung, the Standard profile delivers the ideal blend of performance and battery life. In the meantime, processing speed will be subordinate to battery life and cooling effectiveness in Light.
In our brief testing, there was no discernible difference between the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s Standard and Light modes when used normally. Both phones use the Standard profile by default.
one Reddit user , who received a Galaxy Z Fold 4 early, has put both possibilities through more thorough testing.
Benchmarking programs appear to lose 20% or more of their typical raw performance totals when Light mode is enabled. According to this test, that should theoretically lead to total energy savings while still providing greater performance than the Galaxy Z Fold 3 (or Flip 3).
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU, which is included in both of Samsung’s new folding smartphones, is Qualcomm’s most advanced and is said to increase efficiency by as much as 30%. The vast majority of the power reductions on Samsung’s new smartphones can be attributed to that processor, but these new performance profiles appear to pave the way for even greater battery savings.
