Delete unnecessary applications
Almost on all devices, users are often left accidentally with an application that works in the background, depleting battery capacity. So, if you have an application that you no longer need but still have to receive notifications, it’s best to uninstall it. If you think there are too many apps to choose from, just use the factory reset mode on your phone and start downloading essential apps again.
Adjust the brightness
In general, the larger the screen size and resolution and the higher the brightness, the more battery it uses. When you are indoors, adjust the brightness to the lowest level to suit your eyes. To reduce screen brightness, go to Settings > Sound and Display > Brightness , click on the Automatic Brightness Adjustment box to adjust the brightness or use the slider below to increase / decrease the screen brightness.
In addition, shortening the time the screen lights turn off automatically in the Screen Timeout section also helps to extend battery life. Normally you can leave the screen to turn off after 5 or 10 minutes, but that will consume a lot of battery. Just keep the time off in about 15-30 seconds is reasonable.
Charge the battery properly
According to research at Battery University, you should not continue to charge your device when the battery is fully charged. The study also provides some other tips for users such as instead of plugging in for a long time, you can choose the solution to charge your phone in short bursts.
However, users should avoid continuous charging for devices for no reason. This does not really help improve your battery life. Also, do not wait until the battery is completely depleted before plugging in the charger. If you can follow these tips, it will help preserve the duration and dramatically improve the battery life of your Android phone.
Turn off unused connections
GPS, Wi-Fi, 4G, 3G, Bluetooth, NFC … whatever you don’t need to use, turn them off. This is similar to turning off fans, TVs or lights when leaving the room. You may not know it, but these connections consume a significant amount of battery life, even if you just turn them on and use nothing at all.
Manage and disable notifications
Every time your phone vibrates, playing music will consume a small amount of power, and vibration mode even consumes more energy than you think. That is why you should turn off the vibrate as well as the message ringtone, phone. To do this, simply go to Settings > Sounds and Notifications > Other sounds .
Prefer using lighter versions like “Lite” or “Go”
Typically, users tend to use the full-featured version of an application installed on an Android device. However, if you want to save battery power on your Android phone, consider installing “Lite” or “Go” versions like Facebook Lite or YouTube Go.
When you install the “Lite” or “Go” version, the application usually takes up less system resources. This can significantly reduce your smartphone battery usage. Note that these versions may not have all the functionality of the full version.
Take advantage of battery saving mode available on the machine
Most smartphones today have built-in battery saving mode to help you save maximum power, remove features that are not really necessary but still run in the background.
This feature automatically reduces screen brightness, reduces smartphone performance, simplifies complex applications, and only retains the ability to listen to calls. To activate this mode, go to Settings > Battery > Power saver .
Turn on Dark Mode or dark themes
This tip may not have much effect on devices with LCD screens but is quite useful for OLED screens (including AMOLED screens that Samsung often uses).
Unlike LCDs, the pixels on an OLED screen can produce their own light. The brighter the pixels, the more power the device uses. Therefore, black will save the battery for the machine the most. Although not a lot, a dark theme and wallpaper will help you use your Android device longer.
