Phone Battery Life Tips

Phone Battery Life

Avoid the Battery Blues

Smartphones are notorious for having a shorter than advertised phone battery life. The idea of getting through the day without the battery dying can be frustrating, especially if you use your phone for multiple tasks. Even though there are products out there that can extend your phone’s battery life – for example battery cases and portable chargers – there are simple tricks you can do on your phone to get as much life out of your battery as a possible.

Below are some examples to help improve your phone battery life

  • Turn your auto brightness setting on or turn the screen brightness down as low as you can with it still being usable
  • Turn off background app refresh
  • Turn off the GPS
  • Ensure your Bluetooth is off
  • Use your phone on mostly Wi-Fi
  • Turn 3G/4G off if you’re not using it

By doing these few things, you will stop your phone from using its battery to keep unnecessary resources in use. If you must have one or two apps refresh their information regularly or use GPS, you can adjust individual app settings accordingly. If you are like me, you probably have chargers in multiple locations: work, home, and in the car. However, if you follow these tips, you may not need those chargers as much.
