Smartphones require a lot of energy to keep all of the functionality they are offering to users up and running. Indeed, the consumption of energy for these devices is a way greater than it used to be in the case of the previous generations of cell phones. Today, the majority of smartphone users have to charge their phones at least once a day which was not the case of old mobile phones even though their batteries were far from being thus innovative and optimised as the batteries of new devices.
Many people ignore this point believing there is nothing can be done except for installation of one of the battery savers which themselves are not working and can drain the battery out even more. In the reality, you can easily resign from a number of functions in your device for the sake of its longer work.
Resign from vibration when you do not need it
You might need a popular function of vibration when you have turned the sound of signal off but you still want to get any indication from your smartphone that something has just happened whether it is a notification or a call. In any other situation there is no practical use for vibration and it is highly recommended to turn it off. This includes phone calls which are accompanied with both a ringtone and vibration. In addition to it, vibration coming with each touch of your phone is absolutely unnecessary and at the same time, energy-consuming.
Resign from automated brightness adaptation of your screen
You are certainly aware of such a useful feature of your phone as brightness adaptation which makes it possible for you to see information on the screen of your device even if the brightness of the outside world is too much. Indeed, the way your smartphone knows when to reduce the brightness and when to increase it for the sake of a convenient usage of your device is really amazing. Yet, the process of detecting the brightness of the surrounding world and alternating the brightness of the screen according to is itself a rather energy-consuming process.
If you do not find your smartphone losing energy too quickly, there might be no point for you to resign from this feature, however, if you find you are losing the energy too quickly, it might be a good idea to start reducing energy consumption by stopping the function of this automated adaptation. Do not worry as you will still be able to change the brightness in the manual way just as it was done before the automated function as developed and added to the common systems of smartphones.
Resign from using apps designed for optimising your battery
This recommendation might be counter-intuitive, however, it is absolutely sensible. Not many people are aware of the fact special apps dedicated to optimising the battery usage on your phone are actually consuming too much of the energy of your phone.
First of all, these programmes are themselves running without a stop on your device scanning it and keeping a track of other apps and their battery usage. This requires a lot of energy. In addition to it, their work is based on forcing energy-consuming programmes and other processes which such an app categorises as unnecessary to shut down, however, it does not necessarily mean your smartphone does not need these apps. Actually, in many cases, the processes battery saving apps are closing are required by the system, so it will try to turn them on over and over again. This can become rather confusing for your phone and, at the same time it will cause an even greater loss of energy so that your system, will be able to reopen the same apps over and over again.
Resign from all of the apps you are not using
Certainly, it is easier to navigate through a phone which has a modest amounts of apps. Also it seems such a device is working better. How can it be even when your phone is equipped in a great memory capacity and you can actually afford keeping as much apps as you want on your phone?
In the reality any app you have ever installed is not completely off even when you are not using it. All of the apps stored on your device require energy for downloading and installing updates which in some cases can be released and available to your system pretty frequently. As you can imagine, the more apps you have on your phone, the more energy it will lose on such tasks and you certainly do not want your phone to lose its energy on something useless. This is the reason why it is really recommended to keep your phone clean from anything you are not really using.
