Despite of having almost double battery power than the old devices, the smartphones' batteries last for not even a day! The problem with these devices is that their functions consume a lot of battery, and as a result, we experience that we need to charge it for long.
Though it is ignorable if we stay indoors, it can be a lot of problem if we are outside for something and we don't have a source of electricity to charge our devices! We may miss many of our important calls, and I know the feeling of being away from social media. I, like you all, was a social media addict!
In this post, I will be sharing some of my tricks to improve your smartphone's battery to make it last longer.
1. Change your background
Your smartphone's background can consume a lot of battery. Change it from live or something attractive to a plain or completely black one. You will be able to see a noticeable change in your performance and battery
2. Remove all icons and widgets
All the shortcuts and widgets that exist on the home screen cause a lot of battery consumption. Thus, it is better to remove them, at least when you're out and need to preserve the battery. And ideal strategy would be to remove everything from the home screen and change the background to a completely black one!
3. Get rid of unwanted apps
Many of the apps that are unwanted can consume your device's RAM and consume more battery. Thus, it is better to remove all the unwanted applications, whether they are large or small. Even a small difference is enough!
4. Remove unwanted IM and Social Networking apps
Many of us have so many instant messaging apps installed like WhatsApp, Line, WeChat and Telegram, which in turn, reduce the battery's standby, by consuming it to a great extent. Thus, it is better to remove them and keep only one of them, that also, only if needed!
Similar is the case with social networking apps like Facebook and Twitter. It is better to keep them out!
5. Buy a new battery
Most smartphones come with China batteries, which do not have much battery standby, even if they are of huge capacity! Buying a new battery would increase the battery time to a great extent!
As batteries wary for different smartphones, I wouldn't be able to recommend one! But, Flipkart provides batteries for almost all devices. You can use the search box below to search for yours!
6. Reduce your device's brightness
A bright device not only harms your eyes, but also consumes battery. Thus it is better to keep low brightness in the settings!
7. Turn off mobile data
Keeping mobile data on unnecessarily can consume a lot of battery. Moreover, you can be at a risk of unwanted consumption. Keep mobile data off when not using.
8. Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Like mobile data, Wi-Fi and bluetooth too, responsible for excessive battery consumption. Keep them off when not using. Moreover, keeping Bluetooth on unnecessarily can hang your device. I hope it is clear!
9. Use Clean Master
Clean Master is application available for android which cleans your device for unwanted data, frees up RAM and does much more! You can download it by clicking here. It can help to a great extent to preserve your battery.
10. Buy a battery bank
Battery banks are sources of battery and can be used to charge a device. They store battery that can be taken anywhere. Battery banks are a great alternative to all the other ways because you don't have to compromise on your luxury, features and comfort. You can consume the battery without restricts and worries of preserving, as you know that you can charge the battery anytime with the battery bank.
Battery banks come in varieties. If you want to go for a fairly reasonable price, try EverReady UM 22 Power Bank or Maxx PBS-26-SDI. If you can afford to go for a higher price, try PNY Power Bank. Expensive battery banks have stunning looks and larger storage capacities. Sometimes, they even have the capacity to charge multiple devices at the same time!
11. Use one app at a time
If you are a multi-app user, its time to say no to handling multiple apps at the same time. Go one by one. This can help to save battery.
12. Use 'Airplane Mode' Facility
Give a try to the airplane mode facility when your smartphone is not in use. It will turn of mobile networks, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and anything else that can consume battery. This, however will result in no sending or receiving calls or messages.
13. Put your device into sleep
Put your device into sleep. This would turn off the screen. This feature is activated by default in all smartphones. Make sure that you don't turn it off!
14. Disable GPS
Make sure that your GPS is off, so that your battery is not wasted unnecessarily!
15. Keep your device cool
The hotter the device, the faster it will drain battery. Make sure that your device doesn't bask in the sun and is kept safely in a cool place. (Don't keep in a refrigerator!:P)
