Ask a smartphone user what aspect of his or her phone is most in need of improvement, and "battery life" will be the answer listed on the top. It can be incredibly helpless when you're away from a charger but your phone's battery keeps draining until it is dead as a doornail.
Actually, you can make some simple adjustments to your Android phone or tablet to extend its battery life. Here are 5 proven tips you can have a try.
1. Limit Apps Running in the Background
Often, when we "Close" an app we aren't really exiting it and closing it out. It just stays there in the background, continuing to run and continuing to use processing power. Check for these apps and exit them out.
2. Use Power Saving Mode
Top-end Android phones, including The HTC One M9/M8, Samsung Galaxy S6/S5 and Moto X, etc have a Power Saving Mode that restricts some features in order to extend battery life. Go to Settings > Saver (or Power Saver) to turn on this mode.
3. Adjust display settings
Head into Settings –> Display –> Brightness and turn the brightness down to the lowest acceptable level.
Head to Settings –> Display to adjust Screen timeout to, say, 10 seconds rather than an interval like 30 minutes.
Go to Settings –> Language and uncheck "Vibrate on keypress."
4. Minimize app syncing
Turn off auto-syncing for Google accounts. If you don't need every single Google account updated every fifteen minutes, just go into your Settings and Google account and turn off auto-sync for those apps you don't need constantly updated.
5. Make your location services more battery-friendly
One of the biggest battery sucking features on your Android is the GPS. You should disable location reporting and history when you don’t use them. Just go to Settings > Location > Google Location Reporting.
