Here’s How You Can Get More Out of Smartphone’s Battery

Our modern smartphones pack more power than some computers a decade ago, which also means they are far more functional and capable these days.

Even developers have understood people are doing more with their phones, which has put the strain on battery life you’re getting out of them on a single charge.

Manufacturers are countering this problem by increasing the size of the battery in tow as well as introducing fast charge technology. However, there are people whose smartphones don’t pack a big capacity battery, or offer fast charging tech, leaving them concerned with managing the battery life of their device.

Here are a few steps you can take to further extend the battery life on your smartphone and use it smartly.

Often we turn on the battery saver feature when the battery is at 15 or 10 percent however as they say prevention is better than cure which is why you should set the battery saver feature to turn on automatically at certain battery percentage.

Turning on battery saver will decrease the overall smartphone performance and will turn off any apps running in the background.

4. 4. Use Dark Mode

Smartphone displays draw quite a lot of power. You can turn the brightness down when you don’t need it but, if you have a smartphone with an AMOLED screen you can conserve power by turning on dark mode or night mode as known in some phones.

This reduces the power consumed by the individual LEDs, thus increasing your battery life and even Google vouches for the benefit of switching to dark mode for apps.

Often manufacturers have the power options built into the software on the device, which goes a step above than the standard battery saver mode on Android.

For instance, this battery saver mode from Samsung offers two power saving options; medium and maximum, which are much better optimized for the device than the Android battery saving feature.
