How To Increase And Save Battery Life Of Android Phone

Sure, we call our Android devices “phones,” but the modern smartphone is so wildly different from that curly-corded contraption mounted to your grandmother’s kitchen wall that we’d probably be more accurate calling them Personal Computers if the name wasn’t already taken. All the processing power and computing ability that our handsets deliver us are increasingly impressive, but these come at a cost. We’re starting to expect more and more out of our devices every year, but developments in battery longevity haven’t kept pace with other technological advances. Maybe that’s why one of the most common questions we see is, “How can I extend my Android’s battery life?”

I’ll give you the tl;dr right off the bat: if you really want to stretch your battery life, the approach that makes the most impact is to lower your screen’s brightness and kill anything you aren’t actively using. Basic resource management goes a long way, and since your display is almost certainly the biggest battery hog no matter what device you’re using, cutting its effect on your battery will improve battery life across the board.

Shut down vibration

Vibration is wonderful if you’re in a situation in which you wouldn’t normally be able to hear your cell phone, such as being on the road. For many people, the subtlety of vibrating notifications is indispensable in their workplace (if you’re a lawyer, you can’t exactly have Crazy Frog going off every time you get a text message down at the firm).

However, smartphone vibrations aren’t conjured from magical resonating crystals. To produce the effect, your device has to spin up asmall vibration motor every time, which can be really draining on your battery. This goes for haptic feedback as well, that light buzzing your phone may produce when you tap keys on your on-screen keyboard. If you really want to maximize battery life, you should minimize your phone’s jiggliness.

Step 1: Analyzing the factors which are consuming most of your battery. For that follow

Setting-) about phone-) Battery use

And you will see a screen as shown below. As you are noticing that display is using most of our battery power so you have to change the brightness level.

Step 2: Now accordingly minimize their usage (use them when you need it).

Step 3: Now check the apps and for that go to:

Setting -) application -) Running services then you will all the running service as shown.

Step 4: Now decide which application you want to end and then tab on it so a screen would appear showing stop button, press it and that services will stop.

Wi-Fi scanning
It’s well-known that when Wi-Fi is left enabled, more energy is used. However, on Android, even when Wi-Fi is disabled, a phone could still be searching for networks.

To make sure this isn’t happening, head to Wi-Fi settings > Advanced. Here, uncheck the option for Wi-Fi scanning.

Going forward, you’ll have to connect to Wi-Fi manually, but you’ll get a longer battery life in return.

Get out of sync
When you add an e-mail account to your phone, Google assumes you’d like to sync just about everything. That includes Google Play purchases, Google Keep, and even photos.

That last one is killer: photos. Each time you snap a picture, Google uploads it to your account to back it up. For those who use their phone as their primary camera (that’s everyone, right?), this can seriously hurt your battery life.

There are two ways to change this. Head to settings and find your e-mail address under Accounts. Tap the account name again to access sync settings, where you can un-check the items you don’t want synced. Included there is that “Google Photos” option.

Alternatively, head to the Gallery app > Settings, and disable Google Photos Sync.
