10 Ways To Get Your Phone Battery Last Longer
In this era of smartphones, people are always looking to charge their phones at every stop they make and some have resorted to carrying power banks so they can charge their phones all day.
There are however ways you can always save your battery and ensure it lasts you the whole day without your phone going off. Here is how;
1. Turn off the extra wireless connections
Your phone has a myriad of different connections, few of which are really that integral during a blackout. Wireless connections such as Bluetooth and WiFi are great during a regular day, but they can quickly drain a battery. In power-saving situations, GPS is also a no no, and disabling location services is another smart move.
2.Disable push notifications
Most smartphones are hooked up to one e-mail account or another, and these devices either get messages pushed down to them or they fetch the e-mails. You can save a lot of battery by turning off the push notifications.
3. Take a break from streaming
If you have to listen to music or video, don’t use streaming services, which constantly puts a strain on the phone’s battery. Only play videos or songs already loaded on the phone. Likewise, try not to play games that require a connection, like “Pokemon Go” or “Candy Crush Saga,” or games that require phones to rev up their processors, such as the “Infinity Blade” series.
4. Use Airplane mode
This mode typically disables GSM, Wi-Fi, bluetooth and GPS functions on your devices. When turning off all such auxiliary functions, the device will use only up to 5% of its usual energy consumption with the screen off. For comparison, simply having your device in idle can still use more than 15%.
5. Reduce screen brightness
The easiest way to conserve battery life while maintaining full function is to reduce the brightness of the screen. For devices that have an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display, you can also use the “light on dark” option for viewing.
