One of the problems of most smartphone users is the autonomy of these devices.There are still many who remember the mobile phones that lasted a week or more without being connected to the charger, but, in general, that time is already there … Now, if a smartphone hangs a whole day is already very good, but neither All achieve it, much because of the “wasteful” use of the user.
But it is possible to counteract this consumption with small (or even more drastic) changes.
Let’s start with the most trivial actions that can actually be adapted to any smartphone, brand and operating system.
1. DECREASE THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN OR SET IT TO AUTO-ADJUST MODE
The smartphone screen is always the one that consumes the most energy.To check it, you can access Settings, followed by Battery, and you will see that the screen should be the most consumed hardware component.As such, to reduce the impact of the screen on battery consumption, ideally keep the brightness preferably always below 50%.Then, only in the most extreme cases, such as using in bright sunlight, increase the brightness.
This parameter can be set on almost all Android by pulling the notification bar down until the shortcuts appear and the screen brightness adjustment bar will appear. In Settings> Display you can also explore some options, such as enabling automatic brightness adjustment , which is also a good savings option, or reduce sleep time after inactivity, usually 30 seconds is ideal, but there are Even reduce to 15 seconds.
2. DISABLE WI-FI AND MOBILE DATA
Despite consumption that may even be considered residual, these will always use some battery, especially, and in the case of Wi-Fi, that Android is always trying to find the best network to connect.If you are not going to use the Internet, then the best thing is to keep both Wi-Fi and mobile data off.
To deactivate them, most Android users simply have access to shortcuts in the notification bar and click on them, or you can access the settings again and the Wireless tab, and there you have access to the management of various types of networks.Also in this context, if you do not use Bluetooth frequently, you can check that it is also turned off.
3. TURN OFF THE LOCATION SYSTEM
Google wants to know everything about your user and is constantly checking your location.But it’s not just Google, there are many applications that also have a need or pure interest in knowing it.The location can also be disabled via shortcuts in the notification bar or in Settings.
What’s interesting is that in Settings you can see which apps are accessing your location, and you’ll probably even find some that you did not want them to be.Just disable the location for this app or, perhaps, uninstall it.
4. CLOSE BACKGROUND APPLICATIONS
There are many applications that work in the background, that is, they are not disabled when you stop using them, consuming resources, often unnecessary.You should then access the menu for recent apps (which may vary from Android to Android) and close applications with some frequency.In addition, applications such as Facebook that are known as battery devourers can be optimized so that they do not consume resources also in the background, even without being open, namely by disabling notifications.
Take more drastic measures
1. TURN ON SUSPEND SMART POWER SAVE
… Or even the General Battery Saver mode.
Generally, Android already allows you to natively activate power-saving modes.Some user interfaces such as Xiaomi’s MIUI, Huawei’s Emotion UI or even Samsung’s TouchWiz UI even have very advanced battery-saving systems that simply help you with all of the above tips at once.
On Android in general, based on an Android Marshmallow, should go to the Definitions, followed by Battery.On the battery you can choose to activate the Suspended Smart Energy Saver, which appears at the beginning of the setting or, in more extreme cases, activate the more general Battery Saver mode, which will reduce the performance of your smartphone, limiting The vibration, turning off the synchronization of the applications, deactivating the location, among others.
2. BATTERY MANAGEMENT APPLICATIONS
In this roll of savings tips, in the Android world it is impossible not to include some good applications that will help you not only save battery but also improve the performance of the smartphone in general.
One of the most interesting and complete apps is Greenify, which we have already made known in detail, but there are others that might be worth exploring, such as the ones we talk about here.
3. ROM CHANGE
One of the major problems of Android smartphones in general is the delay or even the lack of system updates by the manufacturers.With the evolution of applications, Android tends to slow down, failing to cope well with new application features, and as a result, the battery is consumed too fast.
One of the big changes to Android may be to change the ROM to a custom ROM, such as the ones we present here.
To better understand the impact of the Android ROM change, we’ve contacted RomRepair , a company that repairs and updates ROMs.The explanation, in a simple way, is the optimization of the system to the hardware of the smartphone, providing a safe use, improving performance and offering more features, factors that will consequently bring more autonomy to the smartphone.
There are thousands of Android smartphones available in the dialed and, of course, there are no ROMs available for everyone.Generally, the most popular ones are those with greater community support and therefore will have a more refined ROM development, having more guarantees in improving the performance and autonomy of the smartphone.
Put these tips into practice and then tell us the results!
