How to Extend Your Android Phone’s Battery Life

Cell phone battery is one of the most important cell phone accessories. The cellular phone battery life is one of the key factors users look at when purchasing a new cell phone. If you want your Android device to work longer, try these tips to extend your handset’s battery life:

See what’s most consuming your phone battery

Navigate to Settings > About Phone > Battery Use to see an organized breakdown of what’s consuming your phone’s battery. Applications and features will display in a descending list of battery hogs. If you see an application you barely use or a feature you never use, uninstall the app or turn off the feature.

Turn unnecessary hardware features off

It’s great that today’s phones have LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, but do you really need all four activated 24 hours per day? Android keeps location-based apps resident in the background, and the constant drain on your battery will become noticeable, fast. Some 4G and 4G LTE smartphones let you turn off 4G mode separately, which is a good thing, since LTE consumes extra power but has yet to blanket the country. If your phone has a power control widget, you can use it to quickly turn on/off GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, and sometimes 4G as well (depending on the phone).

Set display brightness to adjust automatically

Turning down the brightness is obvious—you’ll be surprised at how much this one helps alone. But the automatic adjustment setting is less well known. Activating it means the OS will automatically dim its display in darker environments, including seemingly well-lit indoor rooms.

Dump unnecessary home screen widgets and live wallpaper

Just because they’re sitting on the home screen, seemingly inactive, doesn’t mean they’re not consuming power. That goes for widgets that poll status updates in the background, as well as ones that just sit there but look pretty and animated—not to mention animated live wallpaper. (But don’t dump everything, as part of what makes Android great are the home screen customizations; just remove the ones that you don’t use.)
