Having a phone with always low battery can be problematic. We all have that one friend who always has low battery of his/her phone. If you are that person then this article is for you and if you are not, then make that friend read this article. So, let’s just quickly go over 4 simple settings that you can change to slightly improve your phone’s battery. These are the ones that you might be unaware of.
- Auto screen off: This refers to after how long should you phone lock itself if you are not using it. You will find this setting in Display settings where there will be different option of time such as 30 seconds, 1 minute and so on. Keep it to minimum if you usually forget locking your phone because always-on screen takes a lot of battery.
- Auto brightness: If you have turned you auto brightness mode on, it means that one sensor of your phone is always at work to increase or decrease the brightness level as per the light outside. So, simply turning it off can help you save the battery because when it comes to phone’s battery, every single percent matters.
- App notification: You should check the apps that are allowed to send you notifications. There may be many apps that you do not even read the notifications of, so just turn off their notification. It will save both your battery and your phone’s too.
- Phone usage: Some of you may not like this, but it is true. Many of us spend too much time on our phone even when we don’t really need it. We subconsciously put it out and start scrolling on Instagram or watch random videos on YouTube. It drains battery and also makes you feel unproductive. So, use your phone only when you need it. Next time you take your phone out of your pocket, ask yourself “Do I really need to use it?” and you will get the answer.
