Boost battery life
Although smartphones have surprisingly evolved from one generation to another, the lifespan of the battery still remains an issue as seen HERE .
From Samsung S4 to Huawei Ascend , smartphones will use their battery faster than any other similar device. The average duration of an advanced smartphone battery doesn’t usually exceed 2 days.
We will present below some solutions to prolong the life of the smartphone battery which have been tested by many users.
1.Portable battery chargers with USB ports are a very good solution to prolong the usage of the battery.
Such a device can even double the lifespan of the phone’s battery and also ensure a high autonomy.The only downside of it being the fact that it is rather pricy and that we have to permanently carry with us another device except the smartphone.Also the external battery charger needs to be charged too at a certain point.We looked at external battery models available on the market and came with a few tips for choosing one HERE .
2. A second solution would be setting up the smartphone to function economically.
These settings can be done manually to extend the life of the battery:
• Turning off the GPS when it is not used
• Turning off the 3G or 4G connection increases by a lot the smartphone’s autonomy
• Turning off the Wi-fi when we are not using the Internet as well as setting the screen timeout to the shortest length after usage possible.
Using apps to save battery life
If you find these settings difficult to handle Google Play offers very convenient apps that set the smartphone optimally in order to increase the life of the battery. Among the most popular apps are:
Easy Battery Saver which is a very well known app that will increase the battery’s lifespan by up to 30-40%. It automatically turns off the 3G and Wi-fi connection when the phone locks, reduces screen brightness when the battery is low, etc.
Easy Battery Saver has 3 functioning modes to adjust to its users be they beginner or advanced.
Another popular app is Juice Defender which has an extremely pozitive feedback from smartphone users. Juice Defender for Android increases the lifespan of the battery by 40%.
It automatically manages the CPU’s frequency according to demand, it actively monitors 3G and Wi-fi connections for optimal battery performance as well as the bluetooth mode.
The choice is yours, depending on how you use your smartphone – professionally (frequent calls, checking e-mail, skype, conferences, permanent Internet connection) an external battery charger would be the best choice, while for a regular user Google Play apps are the optimal way to increase autonomy.
