If your smartphone has turned one or older than it, it is likely that its battery has experienced some pitfalls and that it isn’t the same as it was before.
Nothing can be more frustrating than your smartphone’s shorter battery span and your phone is dead in the most important of times. And TBH, we cannot agree more with it!
You can obviously chip in for getting the battery replaced or buying a new smartphone altogether. However, if you opt to not burn a hole in your pocket, there are plenty of ways for it.
And, we have enlisted the same below. Read on and find out…
NO overcharging, at all
Are you someone who leaves the phone overnight for charging?
Well, you strictly need to let go of this habit ASAP.
You need to understand that once your phone is fully charged, (within one-two hours) you must unplug it immediately then. But, if you’re charging at night, the remaining time when the phone is plugged in, it just deteriorates your phone’s battery and nothing else.
Secondly, avoid fast charging of your phone because it plumpts your phone’s battery upon usage. In fact, even faster than the time it took to charge it.
WIFI and Bluetooth should be best turned off
We’re all in the habit of keeping our phone’s bluetooth and WIFI connected almost all the time even when we are not using it. And, little that we know, this in itself is enough to drain our phone’s battery.
But, let’s not blame ourselves for it. Thanks to the technology as we got to connect our phone’s bluetooth with fitness bands, car’s bluetooth and what not.
Considering the same, it is ideal to turn off both WIFI and bluetooth when not in use if you want your phone’s battery in good health.
Keep your screen’s brightness as low as you can
Higher screen brightness is yet another contributing factor to your phone’s degrading battery. Whenever you’re on it, (even for looking at the time) you are losing out on precious battery life!
The key is to turn it down as much as you can for a longer life of the battery. Alternatively, enable the auto adjustment of the screen’s lighting option in your phone. That’d be the best!
Bid goodbye to automatic app updates
Well, let’s admit it. We have all had a hand in automatically updating our phone’s apps for at least once (and even more) in our life.
Trust us and give up this practice of yours right away!
This way the background activity (of app updating) will not take place which in turn will reduce the consumption of your phone battery.
Instead, free some time and update your apps manually!
Location services = OFF
We get it, applications like Google Maps certainly need to know your location so as to guide you well en route.
But, LinkedIn? Definitely not.
Do your battery a favour and turn the location service off for it. Additionally, for all apps of its like. This is important from a privacy point of view too.
Turn off your phone assistant
“Hey Siri, Ok Google…”
Our lives revolve around them so much, isn’t it?
But, did you know if your phone’s AI assistant is always at your service, your phone is losing out battery, big time?
Turn it off and you no more will have to pay your battery’s price.
BIG NO to live wallpaper
We all admire the live wallpapers and widgets in your phones, don’t we?
Agreed, they look cool but are not battery-friendly!
So, it is wise that you use a simple image as your home screen and lock screen wallpaper. You yourself will observe the difference.
These are some of the simple and easy strategies to make the most of your smartphone’s battery whether it be an android or iphone. Try them and you will be satisfied.
