Android is the no doubt the best and #1 platform available in the market but do have certain limitations especially for particular mobiles which comes with low-end processors and those which do come along with poor graphic levels (to quote few Samsung Galaxy Y S5360, HTC Wildfire, LG Optimus One will make into this list) and to overcome these issues and increase the performance of the battery you need to spare some time for making few changes to the Android system on your mobile phones.
Note: The following tips are not just limited to the phones which we have specified in the above list, it does valid universally for every Android smart device. Enabling these changes could definitely help you in increasing the battery life.
How To Increase The Performance Of Battery of Your Android Device?
The main things that do consume a lot of battery space include:
- Enabling various connectivity options.
- Kill unnecessary services that are running in the background.
- Brightness Management (using the right level of brightness in settings).
- Disabling the background data syncing (Auto Sync Feature).
Disable Connectivity Options That You Don’t Use
This is the first tip which you will meet in the articles that are in relation to battery saving tips and almost all the expert’s will recommend you to turn of the connectivity options which you are not using (at least for those moments). Say for instance you are a person who browses Internet through Wi-Fi at your home, so it would definitely be an energy-saving step if you turn off the Wi-Fi when you are not using or moved out of your home and the same is valid for GPS, Bluetooth as these are things which you need for those moments i.e, Bluetooth at the time of transferring files or getting connected to other devices and GPS while navigating Google Maps.
How To Turn Off Bluetooth, Wi-Fi?
- For navigate these options press ‘Menu’ and then select ‘Settings’ –> Wireless and Network Settings.
- Then select “Wi-Fi settings” and tap on ‘Wi-Fi’ for enabling or disabling it and similarly select “Bluetooth settings” and tap on ‘Bluetooth’ for enabling or disabling it.
Disable Auto Sync Feature
Auto syncing feature is one of the cool features to have as you there will be benefits like getting notified instantaneously through updates and these are really helpful but the apps like Gmail, Google Talk, Facebook, Twitter needs to stay connected to the mobile data networks (2G/EDGE, 3G) or Wi-Fi every second and enabling these features will drain up the battery sooner and will cost to your pocket as they will be using bandwidths continuously (you can ignore the later if you have an unlimited data plan but when you relate that to battery life this one is big turn off).
How To Disable Auto Sync?
For disabling these features, just navigate to Menu –> Settings –> Accounts and Sync –> Uncheck selections beside ‘Background data‘ & ‘Auto-Sync‘.
Adjust Brightness Levels
One of the major thing which we ignore completely is adjusting brightness levels in our device, the default factory settings will come up with moderate display settings, it is always recommended to go with as low as possible brightness levels to save the battery life. In order to adjust brightness levels you need to navigate to Menu –> Settings –> Display and select “Brightness” and adjust the bar levels for choosing the best (remember the lesser it is, the better the battery performance).
Kill Apps That Are Running in Background
There will be a lot of applications that are running in the background although you will not use them, they use a large share of the available memory so it is always recommended to free up the resources by using third-party apps like “Super Task Killer” or “Advanced Task Killer” or “Task Killer” by ReChild or any other app which serves the purpose to kill the applications which are using huge amount of resources. It is also recommended to uninstall the apps which you don’t need.
