Every smartphone user’s dream would be to use their mobile device for days without having to charge it. What is it about smartphone devices that consume the battery power so fast? Truth be told, it’s probably the fact that it exhibits computer-like qualities, and runs a myriad of apps simultaneously, which ultimately consumes power at a rapid pace. In a nutshell, the more often your smartphone is in use, the faster your battery power will drain.
Here are a few tips and tricks to make your smartphone battery last longer:
Turn off phone: Turning off your mobile device at night before you sleep or when not in use will save you some battery life.
Turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi when not in Use: Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are power-hungry processes; turning it off when not in use will prolong your battery life.
Dim/Reduce the screen brightness: Always reduce the screen brightness to a reasonable low rate; this would add an hour or more to your phone battery life.
Disable Notifications: Disable all notifications to prevent social media, reminders, app updates and the like from filtering through. By keeping this feature active, it will constantly refresh and run in the background.
Turn off GPS Tracker: Always turn off GPS tracking on your device.
Keep the battery temperature cool: Always keep the battery temperature at a reasonably low temperature, that is, do not expose the battery to too much heat or cold. Always keep it at room temperature. A battery is most functional at room temperature.
Turn off sound notification for apps: Always turn off sounds notification for less important apps.
Another means of avoiding battery depletion include portable chargers and extended batteries.
