The big question is this, how can one preserve battery life on an his/her Smartphone?
Here are some awesome tips to help prolong the battery life of your Smartphone:
Smartphone Battery Saving Tips
1) Use Only Original batteries
It is very important and necessary that you use only original batteries. Those ones that are usually referred to as “Follow come”. Avoid using second-hand batteries because this goes a long way in determining your battery performance.
2) Turn off your Internet connection when it is not needed
Being connected to the internet all day long is not necessary at all. This increases data usage and consequently, drains your battery.
Only turn on your Internet connection when it is needed and make sure you turn it off immediately after use.
3) Turn Off Vibration Alerts For Incoming Calls
Always switch off vibration alerts except in cases where it is really needed. Phone vibration consumes more power than the actual ringing of the phone.
4) Find Out What Drains Your Battery
There are some applications and phone features that consume more battery power than others. You can fish out such apps by going to the “Settings” option and clicking on the “Battery” option.
This displays the list of applications and phone features consuming your battery power in descending order. It also shows the battery percentage that each one consumes.
You have the option of turning off any of the phone features you do not use or uninstalling the applications that are not really needed.
5) Turn Off Automatic Brightness
This is an awesome feature in Android Smart phones but it has a disadvantage. It drains battery life to a large extent.
The better option would be to manually set the screen brightness to a resolution that wouldn’t be too bright and increase it whenever it is necessary.
6) Use Black/Dark Wallpaper
This sounds unreal but it is actually true.
Most smart phones use AMOLED display. Using a black background on an AMOLED display produces less light. This helps in saving battery power.
7) Check Notification Settings
Notifications drain your battery.
Check the notification options of the apps on your Android device. If the application has an “update” option, this implies that the application does not use Push notifications.
The best option would be to turn off the notifications entirely.
These few tips would help you preserve your battery life and help you break that habit of carrying phone chargers and power banks everywhere you go.
