6 HOW TO GET MORE OUT OF YOUR BATTERY
Gone are the days when you used to charge your phone once in two days. The situation today is completely reverse of what it used to be earlier. Even with the humoungous battery onboard, smartphones today struggle to last a day. But before blaming the battery and cribbing about it, learn the best ways to conserve charge on your smartphone. The most important of them is to keep your phone on automatic brightness as the well-lit screen hogs a lot of battery. Most Android smartphones often have haptic feedback turned on by default. Turn it off. Also turn off connec- tivity options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC and location services when not in use. For phones supporting multitasking, close unnecessary apps as they continue to run in the background. Maintain proper charge cycles. While using the camera, something as simple as switching off the flash will make the battery last much longer. If you manage 100 clicks with the flash on, you could do at least five time more with it switched off. For something in the middle, opt for the auto setting. No, you don’t need a flash while clicking pictures in the open.
