If asked how long a phone must last if the battery is charged fully? Different people give different answers to the same question. The cut off time the product developers tell is that it lasts many days once charged. But as we all know, this is not possible with the smart phones. A smartphone is used for so many things that it is impossible for the battery to last for many days, unless it is used only for calls.
On the other hand, if a smartphone is plugged to a charger all the time, it is no good. If you are charging your phone two times a day, it means the phone battery life is poor.
The ideal battery of a smartphone today is in between the two extremes. Most of the phones also meet this requirement. But if you still want to extend the life of the battery there are different ways like:
Switching off the GPS
ONE OF THE BIGGEST CONSUMERS of the battery is the GPS. The GPS that is switched on on the mobile will consume large quantities of power. You can use the GPS when you are using a taxi based app like Uber etc. The switching off of the GPS will give you battery of almost about 2 to3 hours.
Screen to be kept in Auto
I know that most of us want the phone screen to be bright. Many times, the screen seems to be too dull and one feels like increasing the brightness. You may go ahead and do it, but, don’t forget to go back to auto once your work is done. Did you know that the screen is one element that requires large quantities of battery charge?
This happens especially in India. Another area where the battery consumption is more is by using the mobile network. This is because the signal is always poor in India and the phone has to do extra work to grab the little signal it receives. Hence whenever you get a chance, go ahead and use the friendly Wi-Fi.
Keep a check on Facebook
Research found out that the Facebook app consumes the phone battery like beer! Now, since that is the mainly used app, we can guess how much charging it consumes. I’m sure you will not like the idea of closing the app. Hence you can at least turn off the notifications so that you receive fewer notifications. If you still have the problem better uninstall the app.
Rouge apps to be checked
Your android ends up with poor battery of there are any poorly coded apps or if there are any glitches in the apps. The abnormal apps will drink away the battery. If you see battery drain, go to Settings > Battery and then see the list of apps that use the battery. Id you see any app using more than 10 % of battery charging that means there is some problem in the app and you will need to restart the phone to resolve the issue else you can disable the app by going to Setting > Apps.
In emergency use Battery Saving Mode
All the phones these days have the battery saver mode. When this setting is applied, the phones modes will reset the performance and reduce and will go to non critical functionality. Use it by going to Setting > Battery.
