When the smartphone can serve a variety of functions – from playing games, watching movies, to video recording – battery performance is declining and is now a modern smartphone battery will not be able to survive a full day.
Smartphone manufacturer is trying hard to improve battery performance. But for now, be prepared to charge your phone’s battery every night.
Here are some tips to conserve battery power:
1. Power saving mode
Smartphone Android and Windows Phone features include power or battery saving mode, which are generally located in the settings menu (settings). Mode will be activated when the battery reaches a certain level, and it will turn off battery-intensive features such as push email, the intensity of the brightness of the screen and Facebook.
Unfortunately, Apple is not equipped with the features to save power or battery, although the available free apps like Battery Life Pro to monitor the performance of the battery and turn off the application.
2. The display brightness
The screen is the most wasteful batteries. The bigger and brighter the screen, the greater the battery consumption. Save hours of battery by selecting which automatically adjusts screen brightness to ambient conditions.
If the battery is running low, the display brightness will go down as low as possible to save battery. Make sure your auto lock function, so when your phone is not in use, the screen darkens to save battery. Wallpaper dark also helps save battery.
Do not plug your cell phone to vibrate mode, just Silent (mute) only.
3. Turn off email synchronization
Your mobile phone may be checking email every few minutes. Every time it is done, will increase battery consumption. Change the email synchronization interval or turn off altogether. We suggest checking email every 30 minutes – so you can manually check your email and you’ll save battery.
4. Reduce social media updates
Getting a Facebook or Twitter update notification to your mobile phone (such as push email) will drain the battery, so turn off the notifications. Some phones have the feature turned off notifications with one click.
5. Turn off the connection
Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth is on almost all modern mobile phones. If you forget to turn off Wi-Fi when you leave the house, your phone will continue to look for connections, and spent batteries. Make sure you turn off all connections before leaving the house.
6. Turn off apps
Even if you’re not using the application, the possibility of the application is still running, and the battery. So turn off applications that do not use. For iPhone press the menu button twice, select the program icon and click the minus button.
For Android smartphone, you can even see which applications consume the most battery. Turn off unneeded.
7. Do not download images
Downloading images when browsing and using email is that some of us do without thinking. But each time you download your images will also use a lot of power.
8. Turn off the flash
When taking a photo with your smartphone, use flash wisely. In digital cameras, the flash is very wasteful of the battery, and the same applies on your phone, so instead of using the automatic mode, turn off the flash when photographed and used as needed.
9. Turn the phone off at night
Night is the time when most people recharge their cell phones, if your battery is full, turn off your phone.
10. Mode aircraft
Smartphone will always try to connect to a network, be it a cellular network, Wi-Fi or data network. The harder attempt to connect to a network, the greater the battery is drained.
There are a great way to overcome this, use an airplane mode, when the signal is bad or when you are in the basement. It will stop the phone looking for a signal and save battery life remaining.
If you’ve been following the tips above, but keep your battery can not last long, maybe it’s time to consider adding accessories.
