-The whole switching on/switching off thing takes too much battery power.
-Airplane Mode shuts off cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connection, which saves a lot of energy.
-Anything that needs GPS navigation will effectively wear your smartphone’s battery out.
-Both Silent Mode and an audible signal need far less power than vibrations.
-Closing and opening background apps again needs way more power and drains your battery very fast.
-The fewer colors your background has, the more energy-saving it is.
-By putting your phone into a freezer, you shorten its battery life altogether.
-Even if your battery isn’t running low, go to the display settings and turn the screen brightness down. Both the battery and your eyes will thank you.
-If you want to save battery, try not to use the camera, especially with the flash on – it needs way more power than any other app.
-Every time a notification arrives, your phone will light up and waste its battery charge.
-Battery-saving apps should be downloaded only from authorized stores, and only after you read other users’ reviews.
-How long the battery will serve you depends not on time but on charge cycles.
-If you always wait until your phone’s battery fully discharges before “feeding” it again, it wears out much faster than it’s designed to.
-Using cellular data and not Wi-Fi won’t only drain the battery faster, but it will also cost you quite a lot if you don’t have an unlimited data plan.
-If your GPS uses Wi-Fi, not cellular connection, your battery will last longer.
-Depending on your software, Power Saving Mode can limit different phone functions, from reducing the processor’s speed to turning off all push notifications.
-However little energy apps consume throughout the day, it may still add up with time.
-Even when you aren’t using social media apps, they keep updating data.
