Tips For Extending The Battery Life Of An Android Phone

October 21, 2020 Off By Gabriel Jimenez

One of the biggest consumers of a smartphone is its screen. Whether it’s an LCD or Amoledscreen , it’s the biggest enemy of your phone’s battery, which you can’t do much about to reduce power consumption.

Of course, mobile phone manufacturers are aware of this and are constantly working to improve performance in this regard. However, there are some tricks that can reduce battery consumption, whether they are related to the use of the screen or certain simple and handy settings for anyone.

Regarding the batteries used in today’s smartphones, it should be noted that they are an overwhelming percentage of Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) or Lithium-Polymer (Li-Po) technology and do not require complete charging or discharging cycles, nor at beginning of use, nor later. In fact, it is recommended that this type of battery not be allowed to discharge or fully charge.

  1. Do not close applications in the recent application drawer

Android has its own smart intelligent RAM management system. Recently and frequently used applications run in the background, and memory is automatically released when required. For this reason, users who delete applications from the recent application drawer make the wrong choice. Deleting the application from the list of recent applications will make it harder to open the next time you use it. When the application runs in the background it goes without saying that it will open more easily, requiring fewer processes and resources.

  1. Use a black or very black wallpaper

If you have an Amoled screen it only illuminates the colored pixels. Not being illuminated, black pixels do not consume energy.

  1. Don’t use applications that promise better battery performance

You only choose one more application that generates a multitude of background processes and attacks you with ads, which consume more energy than saving it. Learn and put into practice all the tips in this article and then you will have done everything that such an application could have done, or even more.

  1. Do not use auto-brightness or adaptive brightness

If you want to save battery power, automatic brightness does not help much. It adjusts the brightness of the phone screen according to the external conditions. Increased screen brightness results in higher battery consumption. At the same time, auto brightness involves the use of a sensor that measures the external brightness and which in turn involves energy consumption. I recommend using auto brightness for comfort in using the phone, but not when you want to save energy.

  1. Use a lower level of screen brightness

The lower the screen brightness, the lower the battery consumption.

  1. Set a short time to close the screen when not in use.

It is usually set to 30 seconds or one minute. In battery crisis it can be set even at 10-15 seconds.

  1. Stops vibration when touching buttons or screen

Vibration when touching buttons or screen provides comfort in use, but consumes energy.

  1. Disable Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi, data connection, GPS, when not in use, they are part of the category of the most important consumers
  2. Change the network operator if you have a weak signal at home

You probably spend most of your life at home. A weak network signal results in higher battery consumption, with the phone constantly trying to stay connected.

  1. Set the battery saving function to turn on automatically at 10% -15% of the battery capacity.

This setting involves disabling certain functions and options as well as adjusting the brightness to a low level and will give you extra power.
