Steps to Fix and Improve Your Smartphone’s Battery Life

Today's smartphones have come a long way, with many changes in design, camera, or even more processing power. However, when it comes to battery, we seen to be far behind with technology that gives us more power over less charge. 

Steps to Fix and Improve Your Smartphone’s Battery Life


We came up with a list of some known tricks that will help you fix and get the most out of your smartphone battery:

1. Turn off vibration and haptic feedback


Most people love the mild vibrations while typing on your mobile phone keyboard. But that sweet touch absorb a good amount of battery because we spend a lot of time on typing throughout the day.

Besides, if you don’t need to get notified by vibration, then turn the `haptic feedback’ off as it actually takes more battery power to vibrate your phone than it does to ring it.

2. Go for Black coloured wallpapers


For those using AMOLED display technology, then is better to apply black coloured wallpapers, which saves lot of battery life. This is because the smart pixels come with AMOLED displays only utilize battery power to illuminate light colours and don’t need any extra power display black colour. Simply put, the more dark or black pixels you have on your AMOLED display, the less power it consumes to illuminate them, thus saving the battery.

3. Don’t miss on Android updates


Most times, updating your smartphone apps might seem like a cumbersome task, but this really helps in improving the overall smartphone performance and battery life. This is because most developers keep updating their apps to improve battery and memory optimization. So make sure your smartphone has the latest version of apps installed.

4. Turn on airplane mode


Tje Airplane mode is not an everyday solution, but will go a long way to cut battery usage. Also konw that, when you activate the airplane mode, it will cut you off from the outside world, but will allow your mobilephone to last longer for multimedia apps such as videos, music player or games that don’t need any connectivity.

5. Remove on-screen widgets


Your Android operating system, offer tons of widgets giving you power  to information on your finer tips. It is a good thing to have everything on screen; however, it plays havoc on your smartphone battery. Try and delete the widgets that are placed to offer information not required throughout the day and still fetch data from internet such as weather apps etc.

6. Turn off auto-sync


Most Apps including Gmail, Twitter, calendar, normally refresh themselves to offer the latest information. This is good development as you cannot afford to miss important information, but this activity takes a toll on battery life.

Go to Settings > Google account and turn off auto-sync for apps you don’t need constantly updated.

7. Check GPS, Bluetooth, NFC


Also, before we conclude, check on GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC and especially mobile data if you are actively using them, just switch them off. 

Because the toll on battery life seems to stand on record high, also if you are on Wi-Fi and also  connected to mobile data and vice versa, then switch one off and leave the other.  The NFC feature may get turned on if you restart your NFC-enabled handset, so keep a check on this too.
