Tips for increasing phone’s battery life
Android phones of today have large, bright screens and high-end functions that use a lot of power.
To maximize your battery’s lifespan, follow these tips.
A variety of things can cause poor battery life on your phone.
Stronger batteries have been added to smartphones to compensate for the increased battery drain caused by thinner, brighter screens, quicker processors, more background applications, and faster internet connections.
Here are various tips for extending the life of your phone’s batteries.
Think you’ll be in a position where you’ll need a longer-lasting battery life for your phone?
Put your phone in power-saving mode to minimize the use of resources that could drain your battery.
Opened the Battery and device care section of the Settings app on our test device and then selected the Battery option.
We activated the Power saving mode below the battery usage chart to disable networking, syncing, and location services and reduce the display’s refresh rate.
It’s possible to further tweak the feature by turning off Always on Display, restricting CPU speed to 70%, or dimming the display by 10% to conserve even more battery life.
As a result, when power saving mode is enabled, the Limit apps and Home screen option allow just specified programs to run and restricts all background activities.
A variety of power-saving modes are available for older versions of Android, each of which provides a balance between performance and battery life.
Airplane Mode is really helpful
Use Airplane mode if you don’t need to be connected to the Internet, and you’ll save your battery life in the process.
Open the pull-down shade and press the Airplane mode button to immediately disconnect your phone from Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile data.
This is the fastest and easiest choice.
Re-tap it to obtain access once more.
Too much brightness is not suggested
Smartphones have large, brilliant screens, but they also use a lot of power, reducing battery life.
You don’t need to turn your device’s brightness level up in most cases.
In your Display options, lower the brightness of your screen. Pull down the screen, and you’ll be able to adjust the brightness from there.
Disabling auto brightness while you’re at it is a good idea.
However, this feature can enhance the brightness of your display to a level that you don’t need, based on what you think you require.
Keep the adaptive brightness feature off, and your eyes (and battery) will thank you for it!
Turn off your screen to save battery life
When you’re not using your phone, don’t worry about the dark screen; this will save battery life.
For example, you can adjust how long your screen stays on under Display settings.
It is possible to set a Screen timeout option so that your screen goes to sleep sooner when you aren’t using it.
Also, how about that always-on display that shows the time and date even when the phone screen is off?
Shut it down! Set your phone’s lock screen to Always on Display in the settings.
On the other hand, you may program it only to appear when you touch the screen or turn it off.
Turn off Active Listening
The awake phrase can put your gadget into continuous listening mode, draining its battery faster. This may be handy to you, but it’s a waste of energy. That’s right; you can disable voice assistants like Google Assistant and Samsung’s Bixby to conserve some battery life. Many Android phones have built-in Assistant features, so press and hold the home screen button to activate it. Then, hit the inbox icon to access your email. In this case, open the app. Open Hey Google & Voice Match by tapping your profile picture, then turn off Hey Google if it’s already active. If you’re having trouble using Bixby, you can turn it off completely.
Try Dark Mode for better battery life
The dark mode looks good, but it does not affect battery life unless your device has an OLED or AMOLED screen.
The newest display technology is now being used on Samsung, OnePlus, and Google’s flagship phones, all still employing LCD panels.
To save battery, it’s better to switch off the pixels showing black on an OLED or AMOLED display.
You can save at least up to an hour of battery by using dark mode, according to iFixit. Android 9 (Pie) brought dark mode to some devices, but it wasn’t until Android 10 that it was made available to all devices.
Dark Mode can be activated or deactivated by opening the pull-down shade and tapping the Dark Mode button.
Open your phone’s display settings if you want to change the resolution.
You may also establish a timetable for when dark mode should be turned on by going to the “Dark mode settings” menu.
Take Charge of Your Apps
Even when you aren’t using an app, it continues to run in the background.
Of course, this will suck up data and battery life over a long period.
While you’re in Battery or App Power Management settings, you have the option to put apps to sleep when not in use.
Enable Background usage limits. Put unwanted apps to sleep so that they don’t burn up your battery.
It’s also possible to command your phone to shut off specific apps.
Tap the addition (+) symbol to add your app to the list after selecting sleeping or Deep sleeping apps.
Sleeping apps only receive updates sporadically, and deep sleeping apps won’t work until they are used.
Thus updates may be delayed.
Keep an eye on the applications that drain the most power to determine if any outliers can be deleted or disabled.
You can see this information under Battery Usage in Settings and then determine which applications should be allowed to run in the background and which should be switched off while not in use.
Use Adaptive Battery Mode
A toggle switch to enable Adaptive Battery may be found under Settings | Battery | Adaptive Battery.
Thanks to a new feature in Android Pie, apps that aren’t commonly used will no longer consume large amounts of battery life.
Adaptive Battery keeps tabs on what’s running in the background and alerts you when an app drains too much battery.
