Android smartphones have taken over the cell phone market now with its unlimited capabilities and hundreds of thousands of extremely useful apps. However, one thing which every Android smartphone user complains is that the battery life of their smartphones is much less than which they used to experience before the advent of Android smartphones. In this article we discuss some of the tips which might give you the best battery life which your battery is capable of.
1. Adjust the backlight according to your needs and do not maintain your brightness more than you need. You can also improve your battery life by adjusting the screen timeout value, setting it to turn off quickly.
2. One thing which drains most of the battery when turned on is the Wi-Fi. Android smartphone users do not usually care about turning off the Wi-Fi after they have used, rather it is turned on in every condition and in places where Wi-Fi is not even available.
The Wi-Fi can be turned off under the Wireless and Networks menu which is located in Settings, or by turning on Airplane mode. Furthermore, many Android home screens have a widget or a shortcut located which can also be used to turn off Wi-Fi.
3. Another important thing to do is to turn off Bluetooth. If you are using a wireless headset, you should turn off the Bluetooth, which can be done by accessing the Bluetooth menu placed on the screen of Wireless and Networks, or by using any Widget.
4. Power Widget can also be used in many Android phones which can control Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Screen Brightness. This tool is very helpful to quickly enable or disable any of the above functionalities.
You can add Power Widget on your screen by pressing on the screen background long enough and then pressing Widget option, and then pressing Power Control option.
5. Users can also adjust GPS for their needs and can save battery power, but then will not get location services accuracy which GPS provides.
6. Some 4G phones consist of a toggle switch which enables or disables the 4G antenna. You can turn 4G off when you are outside of 4G coverage areas.
7. Users can also disable Apps that sync constantly with the network. Apps including Twitter, Facebook, and email except Gmail are set up to automatically sync oftenly, draining battery power.
Users can set this time according to your needs and as high as possible and may also use some apps like SmartSync, to address this issue. Furthermore, you can also set it for manual sync.
8. You can also make use of a Task Manager which helps you see what applications are always running and then closing them to save your battery. An Advanced Task Cleaner or any other similar app can also be installed to do that work for you.
9. Another thing to do is to keep you screen dark, minimizing any animated or colorful wallpaper.
