Tips to Extend the Battery Life of Your Smartphone

June 29th, 2012

Those of us which have smartphones love them, but we understand 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.

While there are several companies working to improve this issue, there are a few things that you can do with your current phone to prolong its battery life.

Dimming that smartphone screen

Keeping your smartphones screen at full brightness can deplete your battery quickly. Lowering the brightness of your screen will greatly improve the battery life of your smartphone, and it’s a very simple thing you can do without removing any apps.

You can also change the amount of seconds your screen stays lit after you have touched it. The longer your screen stays lit once you have stopped using it, the more your battery will deplete.


One more thing you might 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 receive calls for a lengthy 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.
