Automatically Turn On Battery Saver on Pixel 3

The Pixel 3 doesn’t come with the biggest battery inside, but Google has some smart power-saving modes in play here, so you shouldn’t be disappointed either. How long could a 2,915mAh battery actually last? It is hard to tell, but one thing I know for sure: sooner or later, you’ll just want to make sure you have enough juice to last you a full day, and you can have Battery Saver mode automatically turn on when your phone hits a certain battery level.

Yes, you are probably aware of the Pixel 2 and 2 XL fiasco from a couple of weeks ago. Users all over the world noticed that the battery looked weird as it had a red outline with a “+” in the middle, as a sign that the mode was on. Google declared that the battery saver was turning on because they ran an internal experiment that somehow “mistakenly rolled out to more users than intended.”

Battery saver normally turns off some device features and restricts apps in order to prolong the smartphone’s battery life. If that were to happen to your phone and you didn’t notice for hours or evem days, there’s no telling what you may have missed. So, no one likes the idea of devices that randomly turn on battery saver mode, but let’s give Google some credit and assume that this was actually a one-time mistake and nothing more than that.

So, how can you actually turn on Battery Saver on Pixel 3? Just follow the steps here detailed:


  1. Access Setting;
  2. Go to Battery > Battery Saver;
  3. Now, just hit the Turn On Automatically option;
  4. A slider will show up, so feel free to move the dot around to choose at what percentage you want Battery Saver mode to kick in.

Used as your primary device, sending and receiving emails, messages and push notifications, listening to music, playing a game or two and shooting some photos, the Pixel 3 handset might made it from your 7:00 am alarm from today to the one from the next morning, but with a little bit of help, as you can see!
