Do you notice your smartphone quickly draining out of battery than it used to?

  2. Shut down unnecessary radios. You should turn of all the wire4less radios that you don’t need, including GPS, Wi-Fi, NFC, cellular connectivity, etc. You can use “airplane mode” as the main setting of your phone. It will also charge up faster if you put it on airplane mode.
  3. Turn off “Push.” Find a way to turn off the “push” service of your smartphone. You can also just reduce it if you want. Android phones have an organized breakdown of the things that are using up your battery in the settings.
  4. Wi-fi over cellular connectivity. Use wi-fi over cellular connectivity when accessing online content. Wi-fi takes up less battery life than cellular connectivity.
  5. Lock your Smartphone. Always lock your smartphone when you are not using it. You will be wasting so much time if you accidentally pressed certain keys and apps while your phone is in your pocket. You can set this automatically if you want.

  7. Close apps. Besides using your apps wisely, apps that are still opened will contribute to draining your battery faster. Close all your apps when not in use, don’t just swipe and return to the main page.
  8. Right temperature. If you smartphone is left in a very warm place or in a very cool location, it will drain your battery faster. It would be best to keep your phone in room temperature as much as possible.
