How to save your battery phone

Those who are old enough will remember the ‘brick’ phones and the likes of Nokia 3310 and 3410 and will recall that those handsets could last for several days without needing to be recharged.

However, most phones these days will last for a day of use, and in some cases possibly two, but the days of your handset lasting for a week between charging sessions is long gone. How­ever, there are some things you can do to keep it run­ning for longer, so that you are not reaching for the charger quite so often.

 

On how to save battery on your phone, check these out:

1. Watch what you are watching

The first piece of advice is the most obvious, but it is something you can easily forget if you use your smart­phone as a multi-media device.

Watching movies and TV shows, or playing games, can drain your smartphone battery really quickly, so if you are looking to keep your device ticking for as long as possible, you might want to avoid hitting up Youtube and Netflix every time you are less busy. Maybe you can read a digital book instead.

If you are a gamer, per­haps download a few light­er games like puzzlers, in­stead of jumping to Rome: Total War or Stardew Val­ley every time you’ve got a break, as games like this that aren’t as intensive won’t drain power as much.

2. Jump into the settings

If you have got a smart­phone with a great display, you might find this screen is also your Achilles’ Heel when it comes to keeping your phone going over a long pe­riod of time. No matter, if you hop into the Settings menu, then the Display options, you will find ways to tweak it.

High resolution screens can drain battery, so if you’re in 4K, 2K or HD+ it’s likely possible you can downgrade these settings to a lower resolution to keep the phone lasting longer.

3. Close Unused Apps

After you are done using an app and press the home button or swipe up to re­turn to your phone’s menu, you might think it’s out of sight and out of mind, but it is actually still drawing power from your phone.

Lots of apps have back­ground processes that run even when the app is not even active, and if you’ve got lots of apps all running in the background this can siphon your phone’s battery life that could be pretty noticeable.

4. Turn Down The Brightness

This is another seeming­ly-obvious piece of advice, although it’s one that you can forget seeing as Android phones on Android 9 or 10 are meant to fix this automatically.

Brighter displays use more power, so turning your brightness down can keep your phone chugging along for longer, and this can be pretty noticeable if you turn it down a lot.

5. Turn Off Display Tricks

Display settings are not limited to resolution and re­fresh rate. There are differ­ent types of display modes that can affect battery drain, which you should turn off if you value your handset lasting longer.

Always-on displays on smartphones have been around for years on smart­phones, and some are com­plex while others are pretty basic, but no matter what your always-on display is showing you, it’s going to be draining quite a bit of battery. If you want your phone to last as long as possible, turn it off !

Some phones have live wallpapers, which are basi­cally backgrounds for your phone which move – these can be simple patterns which fluctuate, or actual moving images, and these can drain plenty of battery, especially if you spend a lot of time looking at your phone’s main menu. Chang­ing your wallpaper to a static image will keep your phone lasting much longer.
