We have gotten used to the one-day endurance of our smartphones after years of using them. However, the problem arises, for example, when your battery degrades with gradual use, which suddenly causes you to arrive home with a very low battery balance, or with a completely discharged phone.
If you don't want to change your smartphone or its battery so quickly, these 5 tips can help you increase the endurance of your device and thereby reduce the rate of degradation of the battery itself. We will show you 5 tips on how to save more battery. You can use all of them, but also choose the ones that suit you the most. For the demonstration we will use a Xiaomi smartphone with MIUI, other Android phones will be very similar.
Turn on dark mode
If your smartphone has an AMOLED display that allows it to completely turn off the pixel lighting when the color is black, dark mode is a quick and very easy way for you to save more battery. In the settings for screen turn on dark mode, which you can even set for individual applications, and turn it off in those where you don't like it.
Too bright screen (turn on automatic brightness)
In strong sunlight, we increase the brightness to the maximum for better readability, but then we forget to lower it. It is possible to lose large amounts of battery capacity in this way, as the bright display is one of the most energy-hungry parts of the phone for it. As with dark mode, in the menu for screen open up brightness level, and activate there automatic brightness. The ambient light sensor in your phone will take care of the rest.
Turning off automatic connection to the 5G network
If you don't need 5G data speed right now, you can save battery capacity by deactivating automatic connection to the 5G network. A 5G connection consumes significantly more battery than, for example, 4G. In the settings for SIM karty choose your own SIM card and find network type selection. After selection preferences of 4G networks your smartphone will no longer automatically connect to the 5G network.
Limitation of location services
If you're at home right now and you don't need to have localization turned on, turning it off can help your smartphone last longer. Some applications periodically use location access. In the settings for position you can view these applications, or check which applications they have permission to request location at any time (access to location - always allowed). Here, we recommend leaving only applications that have this permission, for example, due to automatic detection of activities or other automatic tasks.
Optimization of background applications
In the settings battery see which applications take up the most capacity. If they are applications that you don't use very much, for example, click directly on the given application and in the detailed information you can set them more strictly background running settings (battery saving), respectively that the system automatically turns them off after a certain time to save your smartphone's battery life.
Of course, automatic can also help you clearing the cache (disabling background apps and deleting their temporary data), which you activate in the same way from the settings battery (click on the settings icon at the top right). For example, you can set the phone to clear the cache after 30 minutes of inactivity.
In the same place you will also find battery saving mode, which will reduce the speed of the processor, turn off some system animations, and you can use it when you don't have a charger handy and you need your phone to last until the end of the day. You can quickly turn on almost all the tips and settings mentioned in this guide even after opening the quick system settings by swiping down on the home screen.
