Battery Low? Tips on How the Prolong Your Android Phone’s Battery Life
One of the most annoying things about Android smartphones, is the need to recharge them every day, at least once. In the olden days, you would recharge your Nokia 3310, and go about your business. The battery would last long enough for you to forget where you left your charger. These days, however, you will probably carry it around in your pocket, waiting for the opportunity to recharge your mobile device.
While an eye-opening revelation as far as battery life goes doesn’t exist, there are some things you can do to make it last longer, and to avoid those dreaded situations when you run out of power at the most inopportune moments.
Use the Power Saving Mode
If your Android phone has it, use it, by all means. You can control the amount of power your phone’s CPU and screen consume, as well as haptic feedback, which is tasked with producing vibrations every time one of the phone’s function has been activated. To gain access to it, swipe down your home screen and go to Settings.
Get Rid of Apps You’re Not Using
It’s fair to say, without underestimating anyone, that most people don’t understand how some of the apps work. Even though they don’t appear to be active, they are running in the background and are using up your phone’s resources, and in turn, your battery. While this is fine for all those apps that are essential, those that aren’t don’t consume any less power because of it, so you might as well delete them.
Leave Your Phone on the Windowsill
Wait, what? Yes, you’ve read that correctly. Well, it doesn’t have to be a windowsill, but leaving your phone out in the open instead of keeping it in your pocket will help it achieve a better connection more easily, which in turn requires less power. Even the little things, such as tilting your phone 45 degrees will help it achieve a stronger connection, and save battery.
Store in a Dry and Cool Place
Although this bit of advice might be better suited on a food label, it does help a lot. It is a well-known fact that high temperature shortens the life of any type of battery, – including Laptops – so you need to do everything you can to keep it as cool as possible. Instead of keeping it your front or back pocket, put it in your jacket, or, if you are in your office, on the table. You can also cool it down with a fan during recharge.
