Long gone are the days when the battery for your mobile phone could last days! Nowadays it’s difficult to get your battery to last for a single day. Here are 15 tricks you can use to improve the battery life of your smartphone:
#1 Unused Apps
Delete the apps you don’t use. These apps are active in the background, draining your battery life for no reason. You will be surprised at just how many such apps there are!
#2 Background Apps
Background app data is important for the functioning of your main apps, but why have it active for nonessential apps? Disable it for such apps and save on battery life!
#3 Everyday Apps
Don’t keep closing apps that you are using regularly. People think that this improves battery life, but it actually harms it!
Turn off notifications for the apps you don’t use that regularly. Keep them active only for the most important apps such as Facebook and Twitter!
#4 Email Fetching
Turn off your phone’s auto fetching of email feature. Only have it check for new mail when you manually request it to. This tip is only for iOS users.
Turn off your phone’s GPS that tracks your location and reports it. This is usually used to provide location updates in social media posts, but is a huge drain on your battery life.
#6 Screen Brightness
Turn down the brightness of your screen and turn off auto brightness as well. A bright screen drains battery, this much can be ascertained through pure logic!
#7 Sounds and vibrations
Turning your phone to silent is thought to save battery, but not if your phone is still vibrating. Turn vibrations off completely if you want to improve your battery life.
#8 Lock Time
Decrease the time your phone waits before automatically locking your phone.
Only turn Bluetooth on when you have to use it. Otherwise, keep it off as the process constantly open in the background of your phone seriously drains battery.
#10 AMOLED Displays
If your phone has an AMOLED display, try keeping a dark background. This tactic has been reported to save people up to an hour of battery life every day as your phone would have fewer pixels that it would have to light up.
#11 Battery Charge
The advice to only charge your battery when it is fully depleted is old news now. Put it on charge whenever you can, otherwise you might end up damaging your battery if you repeatedly drain it.
# 12 Low Signal
If your phone is experiencing low signal strength and you are running low on battery, turn airplane mode on and try to get closer to your wifi source.
# 13 Battery Saver Mode
If you have an Android phone, you have an advantage that comes pre installed. Battery saver mode is an excellent way to increase the amount of time that your fully charged battery will last.
# 14 Airplane Mode
If your phone is about to die and you are desperate, simply turn airplane mode on as a last ditch effort to make sure that it doesn’t turn off!
