Even though it was not a total revamp, Samsung did a fine job of tweaking the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Both devices may look similar to their predecessors, but there are several hardware and software tweaks that make these devices a good improvement.
The battery was one of the key issues on the Galaxy Z Flip 3, and Samsung listened to the call of the hour and improved the battery capacity with the Galaxy Z Flip 4. To further enhance the battery life, Samsung has added a battery-boosting performance profile under the Settings menu on its new foldable devices.
Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 comes with a Light performance profile for better battery life
When you open the Settings menu, you will see a new section called the Performance Profile. Under this section, there are two options: Standard and Light. This apparently takes the place of the Enhanced Processing toggle that was available in previous One UI versions.
According to 9To5Google, the description of the Standard battery profile reads that it has the recommended balance of battery life and performance. On the other hand, the Light profile prioritizes battery life and cooling efficiency over performance. A Redditor put the two battery-boosting performance profiles under test on the Galaxy Z Fold 4. As a result, the benchmarking app revealed a performance drop of around 20%. It offered better battery life while still offering better performance than the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
These performance profiles, along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, are a nice combination for huge power savings on Samsung’s new foldables.
