TIPS TO IMPROVE BATTERY LIFE ( THE UNTOLD ONES)
1.TURN OFF LOCATION AS WELL AS LOCATION HISTORY –
If you use Google Maps very often, the chances are that most of the time, you keep your Location or GPS turned On. Now, this results in a significant battery drain, so it is suggested that if you aren’t using the Location service, turn off the Location. Also, you should disable the Location History that keeps tracking your location and saves it. For this, go to Settings > Location > Google Location History and turn the toggle to off.
2.DISABLE AUTO SYNC –
Auto Sync means your Data from different accounts is regularly synchronized in the background without letting you know. Obviously, this will result in a faster battery drain so it is suggested that you should disable Auto Sync by going to Settings > Accounts and then tap on three dots option on top right corner. There, turn off Auto Sync Data.
3.DISABLE ‘KEEP WIFI ON DURING SLEEP’ –
Sometimes, you sleep at night after charging your phone fully but in the morning, the battery level goes from 100 to 80% and you were not even using the phone. Well, the major cause of this is the option in Wifi Settings. So, go to Settings > Wifi and tap on the Gear icon at the top. There, you will find an option ‘Keep Wifi On During Sleep.’ Just choose the option ‘Never.’
4.DEACTIVATE ANDROID DEVICE MANAGER –
The Android device manager is very helpful in case you lost your device and wanted to lock it or find it. But the thing is that it keeps on running in the background, and so consumes a lot of power. It is suggested that you should deactivate it by going to Settings > Security > Device Administrators and then Disable Android Device Manager.
