If you are not using your smartphone properly, chances are its battery drains out very fast. If you follow these easy tweaks, you can easily improve the battery life of your smartphone.
The following are the simple tips and tricks you can use, even if you are new to smartphones.
Steps to increase the battery life of your smartphone
1. Reduce the Screen Brightness Level
Bright screens usually consume lots of battery power. So, to save the battery power and improve battery life, reduce the screen brightness as much as you can of course without putting much strain on your eyes. To change the brightness level, go to Settings -> Display -> Brightness. Some smartphones have the “auto” function so that it becomes brighter in outdoors and darker indoors.
2. Disable WiFi in your smartphone
If you would like to improve the battery life of your smartphone, you should keep the WiFi disabled, by default. Only when you need to use it – turn on it! I have seen many people having it enabled even though never use it – which is not a good practice.
3. Disable Bluetooth in your smartphone
Just like WiFi, Bluetooth functionality also uses a significant amount of battery. You should turn it on when it is required. This will again help you in improving the battery life.
4. Keep GPS off Until Required
If your smartphone has GPS, you should turn it off when not required. Though it consumes very little amount of battery, it’s wise to keep it off unless it is required. Disable Sync and Other Apps that are not Required Disable sync as it will not only save the battery life of your smartphone, it will also make it run faster. Same with all other apps – if you don’t need them, just go and disable them!
5. Remove Unnecessary calendars
Remove all those unnecessary calendars from your smartphone except your calendar – and sync it. This will help you to improve battery life as well as save some memory. You can do it by following these steps: Go to Menu – More – My calendars – Menu – then “Remove calendars” and here remove all calendars: except your calendar.
6. Kill Processes that are not Required
Some processes are not required in the background, they keep running. These processes also consume battery life as well as RAM. You can manually kill all of the unnecessary processes. Most of the smartphones have some in-built apps such as task manager to kill processes. If you don’t have one, you can download it from the App market.
7. Choose Wallpapers Carefully
If you do use wallpapers, it is a good idea to use dark wallpapers. Bright ones, especially white, consume more battery power. Avoid using live wallpapers, use static wallpapers. These were some of the tricks that you can use to improve the battery life of your smartphone.
