As a smartphone owner, the battery is perhaps one of the components you thought about before you decided to purchase the phone. Most smartphone batteries will last between a few hours and a few days, depending on how aggressively it’s being used. One would wish they made smartphone batteries that last a lot longer. But at this time, we just have to size up to what’s available in the market. Below are a few tips that will help you extend your smartphone’s battery life.

Optimize Screen Settings

The smartphone screen happens to be one of the biggest battery drains. You probably use your smartphone indoors most of the time, and that means you don’t need a brightly lit screen. To make sure that you’re conserving battery power, use the display settings option on your settings app to reduce the brightness. Most smartphones have a screen timeout feature that you can also maximize on to extend your device’s battery life. If you’re not looking at the phone progressively, you might want to set the minimum possible time-out delay.

Avoid GPS                                                                                       

GPS apps consume a lot of power, and so you should use them sparingly. Whether it’s Google Maps, Facebook Places or that new app that’s helping you drive around town, make sure you’re only using it when necessary. This will go a long way towards extending your smartphone’s battery life.

Disable Wi-Fi Whenever you Don’t Need It

Most people have Wi-Fi turned on by default. But if you’re not looking to connect to a network and surf the web, you might want to turn it off. Since your device has an intuitive user interface that allows you just easily to turn off the Wi-Fi, don’t be lazy about it.

Disable Notifications

Most smartphones, by default, will light up, buzz or even vibrate when there’s an incoming text, received call, email and chat messages, among many other things. You might want to turn off those notifications that you don’t think are really essential.

Power Saving App

This is often a great way to extend your smartphone’s battery life, and make sure that you are making the best use of your battery. Simply get a top rated battery saver app from the app store and install it on your phone!
