Tips for Improving Battery Life on Android
So you just need to follow these simple tips and make your battery last long. so i’ll start with some basic tips which you guys might already know.
1.Turn Off the WiFi or Data When not in use
1. You should turn your WiFi off when it’s not in use. if you keep your WiFi turn on always your phone will be searching the WiFi all the time like a Dog searches for some food. Turn the WiFi on when you need it, turning on the WiFi without any usage also drains your battery. you also set the settings for WiFi by going into the Advanced option so that the WiFi will turn off when the phone’s screen is turned off or if there is not a good network coverage.
2. Second thing you need to turn off is the Mobile Data, The Real Battery Eater. you should use the mobile data only when needed or if you continuously wants to sync you Twitter or email then use lower frequency like 3G. LTE eats up battery like monster. so tweak you mobile data settings.
2. Change your Sync Settings
If you’re using any Cloud storage app like dropbox or any other then change the Sync settings to WiFi only. if this apps will sync your data over Mobile data then there will be huge drain in battery life and it’ll also eat up your mobile data too.
3. Removing the Unnecessary Apps
Uninstalling the unnecessary apps will help your phone in less RAM usage thus improving the battery life. some apps constantly runs in the background and they also consumes a lot of RAM and CPU. some apps always try to connect to the internet or servers so it’s better to remove them for improving the battery life.
4. Brightness Settings
The Biggest battery eater of your phone is the display itself. keeping your phones brightness at low level helps a lot. you should use lower brightness in home, use only high brightness when you’re outdoor in a sunny day. and one more thing i’ll recommend is not to use Automatic brightness because it neither helps in improving the battery but it constantly changes the brightness from High to low so a lot of battery consumption. well it depends on you whether you’re comfortable with Auto brightness.
5. Remove Unnecessary Widgets
Widget do looks so much beautiful on the Home screen of your Android phone but have ever thought that they eats up a lot of battery. use less widgets and keep in mind that widgets like Facebook, twitter etc which keeps syncing the new posts drains you battery.
6. Disable Haptic Feedback and Touch Sounds
Those little vibration eats a large amount of battery, so it’s better to disable the haptic feedback and also turn off the sound on touch. it makes some irritated and drains the battery too.
7. Turn Off the GPS and background Data
Turning off the GPS when not needed only use it when you need to use it. WiFi location determination is also up to the match to the GPS location determination.
Turn your background data off and see a huge bump in the battery life of your phone. believe me it really helps in saving up the battery juice.
8. Try to maintain the Temperature of your phone
Smartphones batteries works out for long if you’re using it in a cooler temperature. you should also charge your phone under a fan or a cooler environment. but don’t put it in refrigerator (Joking) using a phone in cooler environment always turns out to be good.
9. Charge your Phone Properly
Charging your phone in intervals harms the efficiency of the battery and it also lowers the battery life. so charge your phone once until it reaches the 100% and you’ll definitely get a good result.
Bonus Tip : Charging your phone after switching it off makes the phone charge so much faster.
