With the change in phone design language over the years, companies have abandoned interchangeable batteries in phones to keep phones softer in appearance and to put on edge screens. Of course, this has also increased the power and capacity of the batteries. However, with the development of phones and the development of technology used from screens and communication technology, many of us have trouble running out of phone battery before the end of the day, especially those who have phones that have been in use for a year or two.
If you have this problem, you have several options, you can buy a new phone, or if your budget is limited and you like your current phone you can of course change its battery depending on the type of phone you own. Or simply follow these tips to help you monitor and keep your phone battery’s battery functioning.
Note: The article is set up using google Pixel 3, if you own an Android phone, the steps may vary slightly from phone to phone, but you’ll find most options and settings in the same place.
1. Snooze mode for apps, what is it? How does it work?
App Snooze mode has been launched with Android 6.0 update and makes sure that apps on your phone don’t use battery power when you’re not using your phone. There’s nothing to do where the goofy mode for apps is automatically turned on when you leave your phone unused for a certain period of time. In this case, some applications are denied access to the network and processing tasks are stopped (such as searching for the latest fantasies or news), except for situations that may be allowed to access the network for updates and synchronization.
In other words, when your phone is not used, many of your apps get a nap until you need it again.
You may not want to put all your apps in snooze mode. Especially if you have an app that you want to keep updated because it’s important to your business. Here’s how to do it:
- Go to your phone settings and select “Layers and Notifications.”
- Scroll down and select Advanced Options> Special Access Settings> Battery Improvement.
- You’ll see a list of all apps that aren’t entered under battery enhancement in snooze mode. Click on the “Unoptimized” bar and you’ll see a list from which to select “All Apps.”
- You’ll notice most (but not all) of your apps wrote below “Improve battery usage.” You can go down this list of apps and choose which app you want to take out of your snooze settings. Click the name of the app and select “Don’t improve.”
2. Activate adaptive battery and adaptive display settings.
You already have two great battery-saving features: adaptive battery and adaptive display. Your phone will automatically learn how you use apps and the screen and will adjust it to suit your need and habits. The idea is that your apps and display will only pull power out of the battery when you need it. The two identities are supposed to be done by default, but there’s no problem checking that they’re activated.
To activate the Adaptive Battery option:
- Go to your phone settings and select Battery.
- Look for the Adaptive Battery and click on it. Enable it if it is not already enabled.
To run the adaptive offer:
- Go to your phone settings and select “View.”
- Look for Adaptive View and click “Enable” if it isn’t already enabled.
3. Use an app to help you.
There are many apps in the Play Store that help you save battery power and many of them work impressively. Two of the most famous are AccuBattery and Greenify.
AccuBattery measures battery usage over time and lets you look for any deterioration in battery charge. It can let you know when the battery is full, or lets you adjust the battery to charge it to just under 100% (many believe that charging the battery to 100% will speed up battery damage). The amount of time remaining to run out of battery will also be estimated, depending on your phone usage.
Greenify also lets you force apps to stop, preventing unwanted battery drain.
4. Turn off unimportant apps or uninstall them.
You can already periodically check all the apps you use, get rid of apps you no longer use or block apps that aren’t important from working in the background.
To do this:
- Go to “Settings”> “Battery” and click the “More” icon and then on “Use the battery.”
- You can also click the “More” icon again to select “Show the use of the entire device,” which will tell you about the most applications and features that use most of the battery power.
If you see any apps that you feel are using too much energy and are not needed for you, you can prevent them from working in the background or simply scan them.
To prevent them from working in the background:
- From the “Use battery” or “show the entire device usage” menu, click the app you want to undo in the background.
- Look for the “Restrict work in the background” option. Press it.
- You will receive a warning that the app may not work properly if it does not work in the background. Press “Restrict” to go ahead and prevent it from working in the background.
5. Use energy saving mode.
The purpose of power-saving mode is to keep your phone running when the power level is low. Applications will be forced to stop working in the background, and location services will be turned off when your screen is off, making the battery last as long as possible.
You can specify the point at which power saving mode will automatically run by:
- Go to Settings> “Battery”> “Save the Battery.”
- Check the “Play automatically” option.
- Select the percentage at which you want to run it automatically (15% good to start).
If you want to manually enable power-saving mode, you can do it easier and faster. There’s an option to turn on battery savings in the settings above the notifications in the list you show by slipping from the top of the screen. If you don’t see the power-saving operation option between options there, look for the “Edit” option and click on it. You’ll see all the icons you can place in the Quick Settings menu and press to move the power saver icon up.
6. More tips.
Sometimes, despite all your precautions, even when you turn on power-saving mode, you can find your phone battery almost exhausted and you don’t have a nearby port to charge your phone. In this case, you may want to keep your device running for as long as possible so you can make or receive at least phone calls or text. There are a number of steps that can help you, although some may be annoying during your daily use of the phone.
- Make sure all apps are closed in the background.
- Enable Do Not Disturb Mode to stop notifications.
- Set a 30-second screen pause, so that the screen doesn’t stay on if you’re not using it continuously.
- Mouth lowers screen brightness as much as you can.
- Turn off Bluetooth, location tracking, and Wi-Fi (unless you’re using it constantly). You can also use flight mode, unless you’re waiting for a phone or text call.
- Turn off the notification light if your phone has one.
- Turn off all app sounds and vibration.
- If your phone has an OLED screen, using dark mode can help save energy. Some phones have a dark mode feature for each system, so it’s good to check to see if they’re available for your phone. However, the next version of Android 9 for all phones will have a dark situation feature.
