If you’re troubled with low battery signals every time, make sure that your Wi-Fi network is set to 2.4 GHz instead of 5GHz. Also, try turning off the Wi-Fi while you’re travelling to prevent your phone from continuing to search for Wi-Fi networks.
2. Smart Network Switch
Make sure that your Smart Switch is off. You can do this by clicking “settings” then “wifi”. Now click on “more” which can be located at the top right of your screen. Simply turn off the Smart Switch here. What it does is it automatically switches you to mobile data in places where Wi-Fi connection is not stable.
3. Wi-Fi Calling
If you’re on a network that supports Wi-Fi calling, it is better to turn the feature off.
Some users with heavy smartphone usage say that disabling VoLTE feature from their phones helps in getting the most out of their battery.
5. Get rid of Unwanted Apps

6. Cleaning Device Cache
Files just add up and sit nicely in your cache. This may hurt your battery life. It is advisable to clean your device cache every now and then. To do this, hold the power + volume up + home button and wait as your phone gets into boot recovery. Scroll down to select “Wipe Cache Partition” and you’re done.
