5 Steps That Guarantee A Longer Battery Life For Your Smartphone


5 Steps That Guarantee A Longer Battery Life For Your Smartphone

No matter how cheap or expensive a smartphone is, people always seem have the same complaint – the battery does not last as long as it should. In reality, it’s not the smartphone or the battery’s fault. Here are 5 steps you can take to guarantee a longer battery life for your smartphone.

Let the battery drain completely before the first charge

Taking care of your smartphone battery begins from the moment you take it out of the box for the very first time. Like any other device that uses rechargeable batteries, the ideal thing to do is to use the smartphone until the battery is completely drained before plugging it in to charge for the first time. If you have failed to do so with your current smartphone, don’t fret; not all hope is lost. But, do keep this in mind the next time you buy a smartphone.

Turnoff Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Wifi and Bluetooth Smartphone Battery Drain

You would have noticed that the smartphone battery drains more quickly when you are connected to a Wi-Fi network or using a Bluetooth headset. That is because the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth adaptors require a lot of energy to perform efficiently.

Make sure your smartphone’s Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are turned on only when you require them; rest of the time make sure they are disabled. Most smartphones have a quick access shortcut to enable and disable these features.

Let the screen brightness adjust itself automatically

One of the best things about the latest smartphones is the screens. Smartphones deliver picture quality so good that they are almost on par with the best HDTVs out there. However, all that clarity and colour comes at a price; the battery life.

Smartphone Automatic Brightness Save Battery Life

Ideally, you want to change the phone’s settings so that the smartphone can alter the screen brightness automatically. You don’t really need to have the screen brightness at maximum all the time.

Don’t let the battery levels drop dangerously low

Most people are aware that you should not charge your smartphone too frequently, especially if the battery levels haven’t dropped below 80%. However, in an effort to reduce the number of times they charge the phone, people often let the battery levels drop to dangerously low levels. That is just as bad as charging too frequently as you are making the battery do extra work to charge up completely. 30-40% battery remaining is the ideal zone within which you should start recharging the phone.

Kill all unnecessary apps

Letting applications run in the background is the number one cause for poor battery life. Simply switching from an app to the home screen does not mean that the app is not running any more.

Save Smartphone Battery Life with Application Manager

You have to make sure that you ‘exit’ or ‘quit’ the app; otherwise, all you are doing is switching between apps. The best way to kill all background apps is by installing an app specifically for that purpose.

When activated, the app will stop all background apps and then shut itself down. Fewer apps running in the background means less processor being used which directly translates to better battery life.

Following these 5 simple steps will help ensure that you have to charge your smartphone no more than once a day.
