Yes, we know you are glued to your phone all the time and we know you will rather forget to put on briefs than to forget your mobile phone at home but then that’s not why your android phone’s battery keeps dying. We’ve all been in that situation where we are are constantly looking around for an outlet to charge our dying phone’s battery especially when you are using an android smartphone. There are so many apps promising to save your dying phone’s battery on the google playstore but if anything they tend to even drain more battery and battle with other apps for resources (except for Greenify of course). So then what can you do to boost your android phone’s battery? This article addresses just that.
First, a little insight: most smartphones have either a Lithium Ion battery or a Lithium Polymer battery. Both are Lithium Ion though, and as such, do not have a ‘memory’, which means you don’t have to fully charge or discharge them at the beginning, and partial charging is fine throughout their life.
In fact, these types of batteries suffer from low voltage problems, so it’s actually better to partially charge them (say, from 20 percent to 90 percent) than to fully charge and fully drain them. Battery care is always open for debate though, so for every accepted tip there will be someone that says it makes no difference. Just find the ones that work for you.
Brightness level: Light energy is bright not dark, so then one can safely say reducing the brightness of your smartphone will actually help save battery. And not just reducing but disabling the auto brightness feature goes a long way to save some percentages off your battery life. After all the brightness is usually way more than we need.
Wallpaper: Yes we all want cool shine bright like a diamond wallpaper. Some of us even want live wallpapers or slideshows but then again this just goes a long way to deplete our battery faster. Using darker wallpapers helps save more battery power.
Not so smart: It’s a smartphone alright, but do you know your phone doesn’t really have to be smart all the time? By turning off smart features like gps, air gesture, smart scrolling and the likes when not needed, you will be saving considerable amount of battery power. Most of these features just use up your battery power for no reason.
Original Battery: Well this should have been the first point, if you want a longer lasting battery power, you should go for an original battery. They have better power and lifespan than their inferior counterparts and in the long run, they are more cost effective.
Keep your apps updated. There’s a reason developers constantly update apps, and most of the time it’s memory or battery optimization. Keeping your apps updated also means you have the best optimizations available. Likewise, delete old apps you no longer use, because these may be running background processes that chew up RAM and battery life.
Other tips and best practices: Don’t fall into the auto-sync trap, Don’t be so mobile obsessed, Use your basic battery saving mode, Use lock screen notifications and explore many other features to save battery.
