On This Post, We Will Learn 8 Best Techniques To Save Android Battery Life
Most Android users complain daily about their phone battery, especially in this part of the world where we have an epileptic power supply.
We see people carrying their phone chargers day and night looking for where to plug their mobile phones.
It’s no longer news that the Android phone screen is what consumes battery life the most.
Should that bother us when the solution is right here
Some tips are essential to save the battery life of our Android phone – to enable it last longer.
Tips To Save Android Battery Life
1. Switch-off if the battery gets very low
Have you ever asked yourself why Microsoft makes use of hibernation?
Most people think hibernation is just for saving our work so we can resume from where we stop on our PC. Yes, that is correct, but it also helps retain our PC battery life span.
The same case applies to Android battery, once your Android battery gets very low (like 5%) simply switch off your phone by yourself if there is no power source for you to charge it.
If you allow your Android phone to trip off by itself due to low battery, it gradually kills the battery cells and reduces the battery life span over time.
2. Activate battery saving mode
Android included battery-saving mode from Android 5.0 lollipop. To activate the battery saving mode go to “Settings >> Battery” you will see the battery saving mode option.
If your Android version does not have a factory battery-saving mode, you can go to Google Play Store and download any battery-saving mode app that has a good rating.
The issue of saving mode is that in most cases, it limits background data and reduces the screen contrast.
3. Use a black wallpaper
No doubt, black wallpaper saves Android phone battery life, also applicable in laptops. It may sound strange to you, especially if this is the first time you hear this. A black wallpaper will save more than white wallpaper or other bright colors.
4. Use a dark keyboard or dark theme
A dark Keyboard or dark theme can save battery life. It is necessary, especially for those who spend several hours chatting with their phones.
To change your android keyboard theme go to Setting >> Language and Input >> Google Keyboard >> Theme >> select a Black Theme.
5. No need to connect all the time
If you do not need the internet at that moment, then turn off Data Connection, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and any other connection your phone makes use of.
Whenever you need any of the connections, then you can turn it on manually. Connections if permanently on rapidly drain battery life, turning off when not in use, will save you much battery.
6. Set to a shorter screen timeout
Set your phone screen timeout to about 30 seconds but not more than 1 minute. It is necessary because sometimes we drop our phones without pressing the lock.
Also, a message can come and turn on the screen for as long as you set the screen lock.
By so doing it will help to save the life of your phone battery. Never choose a screen timeout that is more than 1 minute.
7. Delete all unwanted apps
Most mobile apps are running in the background; in the case of the Android OS, it is even more severe.
If you do not need any app, then uninstall it because it may be running in the background, thereby, consuming a lot of battery.
8. Use a low screen brightness
Use as moderate screen intensity as possible you can; this is because the screen is what consumes more battery the most.
You may also consider using screen auto-brightness, it will darken the screen if the environment is dark and brighten it if you are in a lightened environment.
I hope this article helps in saving your Android battery.
