7 Ways to Extend Android Phone’s Battery Life

Android smartphones are fun to use but sadly they don’t have endless battery life. Most of the smartphones out there don’t even last for a one full day if you get busy with it the whole day. Don’t you get worried when you’re away from your home and you see your phone’s battery is slipping away? Don’t worry today i’ll teach you many ways on how you can conserve your phone’s battery life.Let’s take a look at some different ways.

  1. Don’t use Auto Brightness on your Phone Device
    It may sound useful to use auto brightness but auto brightness is usually a lot brighter than you actually need.As we know the brightness of the screen is one the biggest battery sucker it is better if you manually set the brightness to a level that is comfortable to you and increase or decrease when needed.This can save a lot of your battery life.
  2.  Turn Off Phone Vibration
    Vibrations can be really useful on the places where you cannot hear your phone ringing such as on a busy street.However, smartphone vibrations are not produced by some magical powers. To produce the vibration your phone has to spin a vibration motor which can really drain your battery. It takes more power to vibrate your phone than it does to ring it.So unless you really need that added awareness, turn off vibration alerts for incoming calls.

  3.  Quit the Apps Running in the Background
    Smartphones have a powerful feature of running more than one app at a time but sadly it drains your battery and creates laggy experience. By killing apps that you aren’t actually using, you can drastically reduce your CPU’s workload and cut down on its power consumption. In Android, click the multi-tasking button which is placed at the bottom of the screen with two other buttons and you can swipe away apps to close them.

  4.  Turn off Connectivity Features When not Required
    Every smartphone these days has GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth,Mobile data but do you really need them activated 24 hours per day? These guys are the biggest culprits of draining your battery. Turn them off when you don’t need them.Most of the users leave these features running all day without knowing it’s impact on the phones battery. Use them only when you need them.
  5. Black Wallpaper Saves your Battery Life on Your Android Phone

Turn your phone off while going to bed at night unless you’re expecting a call in the middle of the night. Just turn it off when you know that you wont be needing your phone for next few hours.
