7 Best Tips to Extend Android Battery Life

Battery life is one of the biggest issues in the Android world today. Take your SIM card out, turn off Wi-Fi and never touch it and it'll sit there happily, lasting for a whole week on one charge. But try to use it for anything "smart" and, well, that's where the problems start.

It's no secret that smartphones are notorious battery hogs, with some devices having an almost embarrassing screen-on time. Those big luscious AMOLED and LCD screens are an obvious drain on your battery, but did you know there's lots of things you can do behind the scenes to get the most out of your Android? Here are Some tips to help you get the most out of your smartphone battery.

Tips to Extend Android Battery life.

1. Turn on power saving mode :

Power saving mode is a Samsung feature which controls CPU and screen power as well as “haptic feedback” which uses vibrations to signal that a specific function has been utilized.  

You can turn it on and configure it by swiping down from your home screen and then choosing the “Settings” icon (which resembles a gear):

You will see the list of your available settings: Scroll down the list until you see “Power saving mode” and set it to “On”: 

Tap “Power saving mode” to review and configure the options. I recommend checking all three options to get the most out of power saving mode but you can pick and choose according to your preferences.

2.Deactivate Wi-Fi when not needed

If your phone's constantly sniffing out and trying to connect to every Wi-Fi signal in the area like a robot dog on heat, you're wasting power. Switch off Wi-Fi when out and about or when you know you're not going to be needing it. A Home screen toggle will make this easy. Think of it as something boring but essential you have to do, like always putting your seat belt on.

3.Uninstall unnecessary apps

You can never be too sure what's running itself in the background, what with all the multi-tasking, self-uploading, auto-replicating features in today's modern Android apps, so at least minimize the chances of something randomly hoovering up all your battery by constantly trying to connect to some non-existent server, by deleting any unused or old apps.

4. Reduce your multimedia use

Music and videos are the best ways I know to drain a battery.  It’s cool that smartphones can do this stuff but I find myself very conservative with my multimedia use.  I use a Blackberry as an MP3 player when I go to the gym, for instance, since it works fine for my purposes and I don’t have to run down the battery on my Android.  Consider a cheap music player to carry on the side if you just need something to listen to.

If you’re on a coast-to-coast flight and don’t care whether you run your battery down watching a movie on your device, far be it from me to stop you, but if you need your device to communicate with the outside world (such as on a camping trip) I’d skip the entertainment.

5.Use Apps:

Apps like Battery Doctor will give you a much better indication of what's literally eating away at your phone's battery over time than Android's own limited battery life checker, which could help finger something that's the key culprit in draining power. And if you can live without it, bin it.

Another Good app is Cleanmaster that i would recommend. Cleanmaster helps you keep track of what’s running on your device and can kill off processes taking too many resources.

This allows you to end programs directly. The program allows you to perform several functions; Select “Junk Files” >  Selecting “Clean Junk” can restore some of your memory, making your Android have to work less.

The “memory boost” function is somewhat similar; it can kill open apps you don’t need. There is an App Manager which works in a similar fashion to the native manager on the Android, but you can backup apps first which can be handy: 

Download These Apps which i recommend you to.

To enable this feature, open the Settings app, tap iCloud, and set the Find My iPhone or Find My iPad slider to On. You’ll need to enable this setting on each device you want to track. If you haven’t set up iCloud on your device, you’ll be prompted to set up an iCloud account here.

For a Mac, open the System Preferences window (Apple menu > System Preferences), click the iCloud icon, and ensure the Find My Mac box is checked. You’ll be prompted to set up iCloud here if you haven’t already. Choose a Strong Password.

It is an amazing Feature by Apple, Whenever you put your iPhone or iPad in Lost Mode, iCloud will do its work and will track the movements so that you can see the History.

Unlike Apple’s solution, Android Device Manager will be wiped after a factory reset. You can Ring the Device, Lock it or Erase all the data.

Thief can reset your device and you won’t be able to track it down. Android Device Manager also won’t monitor a complete history of a lost device’s movements. it only fetches the location of the device when you sign in. It discards any location data when you sign out.

Android Lost allows you to start tracking a device remotely, even if you never set up tracking software ahead of time. I would Recommend you to download this app in your android device. Other tracking solutions offer more powerful features like the ability to take photos with the phone’s camera or listen in on the phone’s surroundings with its microphone.
