With the increasing availability of quad-core processors in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S III, trying to keep the Android battery charged is of even more obvious concern. Today we will take a look at the top 5 ways to make the most of Android’s battery life.
Find Out What is Using Juice
To know what action should be taken to fix your battery problems, first, you need to know why your battery is deteriorating in the first place. In Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, you can find this information below: Settings> Device> Battery. In Gingerbread, the same screen can be pulled up through Settings> About Phone> Status.
This screen will show your current discharge rate and will also show how long it took for your battery to be fully charged. Below you will see by percentage what sources are actually using your battery. In the example, I have shown here. The screen is taking up about 64% battery life from my phone. It is likely to be the highest user of your battery. But as you can see with me, Twitter is taking a significant amount of battery. For me this is normal, but if you see an application that is incredibly high, this will be your first indication of what needs to be done next to improve your battery life.
Although apps can use a chew through a large amount of battery, your performance is most likely to be # 1 on the list. This is very universal through all phones, and limiting the power you take will ultimately yield the best results in saving battery.
The most complicated part of it is; There is no “best setting” when it comes to screen brightness. The best settings for one phone for one person can make the screen absolutely unreadable for another. In addition, the automatic brightness setting works differently on different phones, with some phones controlling screen brightness very well while others being the best. What I suggest is to get a widget for your phone, and adjust the brightness in a way that suits your needs.
Control Your Refresh Intervals
Social networking has continued to find a place in our everyday lives. And millions of people use apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter on a daily basis. This app pushes information on users’ phones and allows them to see real-time updates from other users within a given app. The biggest problem with apps is that in order to get these real-time data, your mobile device is constantly checking on the Internet to see if anything new has been added.
When you consider that the average user may have 2 or 3 apps on their phone, you can see what kind of power is generated to ensure that these apps are up-to-date. Can. Changing the viewing and refresh intervals within the application settings will definitely affect your batter over the course of a day.
End Apps You’re Not Using
Within the new version of Android OS, you will find a task manager. This application can show you which programs are active on your mobile device and how many resources each of them is using. By eliminating applications you no longer have, those resources will go into an idle state which will allow you to save more of your battery when you really need it.
Note: Under Task Manager, you will see a tab named RAM. There is a debate on whether regularly cleaning RAM will help in the battery life of your device. The truth is, no matter how many times you clear the RAM, the bus will be used again. This is a hereditary feature of how a Linux system runs and will have little impact on your battery life. So save your time.
Take Things Into Your Own Hands
The last tip is almost as simple as they come, handle yourself. Several features have been added to the new Android operating system to allow the user to have more control over their battery life. ICS, for one, is a battery-saving setting that allows you to switch things like Wi-Fi and go into airplane mode, which will have a profound effect on your battery when you don’t need the signal.
Also do not take your device to ignore the method. Every time you flip your screen to check to see if something new happens, a large amount of energy is used to turn on your display. Doing this consistently is worse than having the proper set of notifications on your phone, which makes you aware of new content.
Android Battery – Conclusion
As you can see a user has several ways to have more control over battery life that consumes their device. While some may benefit more than others, all of these tips will help you make the most of your device’s life.
