Tips to Extend the Battery Life of Your Smartphone

Those of us that have smartphones love them, but we realize they have one major fault. Their batteries do not last long enough. It’s very annoying because you have a smartphone for a reason. You can send emails, listen to music, and make calls, but all smartphones are restricted by their battery life.

The problem comes down to this: Smartphones do too much. And by doing so, they consume more than their fair share of power. There are steps, though, that you can take to boost the life of your smartphone’s battery. By shutting off some of your phone’s extra features, you may be able to pull enough juice out of your battery to keep your smartphone humming all day long.

Dimming that smartphone screen

Keeping your smartphones screen at full brightness can drain your battery quickly. Lowering the brightness of your screen will greatly improve the battery life of your smartphone, and it’s a very simple action you can take without getting rid of any apps.

Another easy trick you can do is to adjust the amount of time your screen stays lit after being used. The longer your screen stays lit without being touched, the more it will deplete your battery.


One more thing you may not know is that Bluetooth devices are a constant drain on your battery. They actively search for signals coming in and this uses up your smartphone’s power. If you know you aren’t going to get calls for an extended period, like in a theatre or a meeting, turn your Bluetooth off. This will lengthen your smartphone’s battery, at least until you get home.
