Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
A few very easy ways to extend the life of any type of cellular phone.
1. Lower the brightness setting.
The screen (or the display) takes up most of the battery charge. By reducing the brightness, you decrease the power consumption of the entire device.
2. Set the screen to lock, or darken after a short interval of not being used, as apposed to the usually default 30 seconds.
Just like i mentioned above, the screen takes the most power, so why should it be on if you aren't even using the phone?
3. Disable vibration and sound after each button press.
Vibrating the phone, and making noises naturally takes battery, by disabling this, you will get more battery life.
4. Avoid keeping the camera on for long periods of time when not taking photos.
Contrary to what some people may say, the phone is NOT always recording what is on the camera at all times, and is only functional when you enter camera mode, at that time it consumes A LOT of battery power, so you should avoid keeping it in camera mode for long periods of time.
5. Turn off Bluetooth / Wifi unless you are using it.
Bluetooth / Wifi consumes a lot of power when running, it should only be enabled when you are actively using it.
6. Do not play games.
Playing games consumes a lot of battery power. if you don't have a lot of battery and are trying to make that last bar last, you shouldn't be playing games on it.
If your phone is a smartphone, an Iphone or an Android, you can try download or using power saving applications to help manage your battery.
also, make sure to close any background processes to use less power.
