How to Get More Battery Life from Your Smartphone
You love your smart phone and you can't live without it. It's your little beeping companion who follows you everywhere and updates you whenever you have an email, Facebook post, or reply on Twitter.
However, you sometimes become frustrated because you can't seem make it through a day without needing to charge your phone.
If you want to make the battery life of your smart phones last longer, here are some tips:
Turn off the Features You're Not Using
Chances are, right now you have many features of your smart phone running in the background that you are not currently using, such as Wi-Fi, games, Bluetooth and more.
If you leave these features functioning all the time they can eat into your battery life. To make your phone last longer on one charge; turn them off when you are not actively using them.
Watch Out for GPS Apps
There are certain apps on your phone such as weather reports, local news apps, and navigation apps which will always use GPS to find out your current location. This can eat up a lot of battery power, so make sure that these apps are turned off or deleted.
Dim the Lights
Did you know that by dimming the brightness on your smart phone screen you can make your battery life last longer? Go into your Settings and adjust your screen so that it is dimmer, especially in the daytime when the ambient light around you will allow you to see the screen anyway.
Turn it off
When your computer starts working slowly, it is usually because of the excess of simple tasks which has built up in the background and a simple reboot refreshes it.
The same happens with your smart phone. Turning it off for a while, such as when you are in a meeting, when you are sleeping, or when you are watching a movie, will allow it to clear itself out and start fresh.
When added up together, these little changes in habits should make your smart phone battery last a lot longer than it currently does!
