6 Tips to Make Your Phone's Battery Last Longer

How to make phones battery last all day

Here are our 6 tips for prolonging your phone’s battery life. Just use the ones that make sense for how you use your device – but following some will help you conserve juice.

Dim the screen brightness

Phone's display consumes battery life at a devastating pace. We suggest enabling the auto-brightness feature that automatically adjusts the screen's brightness to suit ambient lighting levels. To get even better results try turning your screen's brightness down to the lowest setting that you can tolerate and leaving it there. This can extend the life of your battery dramatically.

Keep the screen timeout short

Most phones have setting controls for how long the phone's screen stays lit after receiving input, such as a tap. We suggest setting your timeout to the shortest available time. Specially if you are using wallet type phone cases.

Turn off vibrations

Phone requires much more power to vibrate than to play a ringtone since the vibration motor rotates a small weight to make your whole phone shake. Not using vibrations might not suit everyone but it's good to keep this in mind when you want to prolong the phone's battery life by any cost.

Turn off Bluetooth

When not in use turn it off since your phone's Bluetooth is constantly listening for signals from the outside world.

Turn off Wi-Fi

There's little point in leaving the Wi-Fi radio on when you're out and about. By turning it off when you go out the door you add up extra time to your phone's battery life.

Set to check for new emails less ofter

If you don't need to respond immediately to your emails we suggest changing the setting to fetch mail less ofter - maybe every 15 or 30 minutes. Since having it constantly check for new mail is a waste of the phone's battery.

Enhancing your phone’s battery usability requires a combination of limiting the use of power-hungry hardware and software. We hope these quick tips will be helpful.
