As we all know, Apple iPhone and iPad devices have a feature called “Battery Health”, which can display the exact battery life or battery health of iOS devices in percentage. On the other hand, Android devices like Samsung do not have the features of iOS. Meanwhile, in this guide, I will show you 2 ways to monitor and check the battery health of your Samsung Galaxy phones.
The reason why the battery performance decline over time is that almost all mobile phones on the market use lithium batteries. The problem with these batteries is that they will age over time, reducing the charge capacity and extending the charge cycle. Although Android provides a lot of battery-related information, there is no native mechanism to assess and evaluate battery decline.

One of the easiest ways to check and monitor Samsung Galaxy phone battery health or battery life is to use the Samsung Members App. Unfortunately, we rarely use this application on our mobile phones.
Samsung Members is a special tool for Samsung. This is an excellent application that helps users maximize the functionality of Samsung smartphones. You will access unique information through this app, including device diagnostics, support, and community. You can also communicate with other Samsung users. In addition to technical news, the app also contains tips and methods to further improve Samsung. If you are a fan of Samsung then this app is a must-have for your phone.
Here are the steps to check battery health on Samsung Galaxy Devices with the Samsung Members app:

2. Check the Battery Health of your Samsung Galaxy Phones using the AccuBattery app
AccuBattery is one of the top-rated applications to learn and view more about the battery of your Android devices. Although it doesn’t provide as much information as root-only software, it is the best non-root software that allows you to monitor Samsung Galaxy phone battery health.
After a few charging cycles, the “Health” page of the app will start to show an estimate of the current battery capacity. During the upload session, the value will be more accurate.
For a brand new battery, the app will usually indicate a 95% health condition. Therefore, when determining the current performance of your battery, you need to consider this margin. As long as the phone ages well, anything over 80% is considered good. When the temperature drops to 70degrees and you find that it cannot drop, you can replace the battery.
AccuBattery is not 100% accurate because it does not have direct system-level battery data. When I got a new battery, the app said it was in good condition, and based on its 4200 mAh capacity, it got a 95% health level. Therefore, please allow a 5% margin when calculating the current state of the battery.
It also displays the hourly battery charge and discharge rate, temperature, battery wear on each charge cycle, and charge and discharge history. You can also set an alert when the battery charge reaches 80%.
That’s it. This is how you can check the battery health of your Samsung Galaxy phones using the Samsung Members app and AccuBattery app. The good thing about the Samsung Members app is that it’s Samsung’s app and definitely can give you accurate information related to the battery health and battery life of your Galaxy Phone. Not to forget that the AccuBattery app also not a bad option. Good luck! Keep monitoring your battery!
