There are too many smart phones and it’s always nice to have a smart phone with all the latest features and best hardware configuration. But with all these best of best features you also get “Low Battery” alerts which is something most of us don’t want to see in the middle of the day. These devices can be tweaked to get the most out of its lithium-ion batteries.
Here are some of the tips that you might consider for a better battery life of Smart Phones.
- Bring down the brightness of your screen to 0% or just above that instead of 100 %.
- Lower volume (still audible enough) when listening to music.
- Switch off Radio when not in use.
- Try using inbuilt features instead of third party apps which does the same job as inbuilt features.
- Uninstall all unused apps.
- Turn off WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, Smart Stay – Eye tracking and Sync when not in use.
- Turn off Vibration and keypad tone.
- Avoid Bluetooth headset.
- Push notifications as soon as they arrive in your server’s mailbox can be power hogs, turn off push and increase the interval between when the phone checks for new messages. Manual checking is better.
- Avoid Flash animation, as they consume lot of battery power.
- Playing games with high graphics can bring down the battery life drastically.
- The CDMA mobile standard uses more power than a GSM network. If battery life is critical, you might want to consider GSM as long as its coverage meets your needs.
- Use less number of widgets on your Android device as it consumes more battery (and data).
- Turn off mobile data network and navigation when not needed.
- Use task manager to kill unused apps.
Even after doing all these, if your battery lasts only an hour after you’ve charged it, you know its time is up.
