April 29, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Ever wondered how to aid your smartphone battery to stay alive longer? Smartphones these days tend to be mini computers and so every action you perform with them can be tiring for the battery inside.

So, we thought we would let you know of a few steps to keep your phone battery fine and fettle for rigorous activity on a day to day basis. Here they are:

One thing you can do is to keep your device display dim a bit so that the battery runs longer. Cutting down on the battery brightness is one way that can help your battery from wear and tear.  For this, you need to head for Options or the Settings menu, where you can go about changing the screen brightness as you want.


You can also help your battery by turning off your screen after a minute or so of inactivity.

More wireless radio options can bring about much pressure on your phone battery. So make sure you keep the ones you need turned on, while the others are off. Many of us tend to keep our GPS, Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi options turned on always, and this causes unnecessary pressure on the battery.

Keeping your phone in airplane mode when you aren’t using the device also helps. Did you know that your phone charges faster if you keep it in airplane mode?

Another tip we have got for you is to keep Push services turned off. This ill for sure give your phone a better battery life.

When you are browsing on your phone, try and do that when you are on WiFi mode. Cellular connectivity over the network might add more work to your battery. Choose WiFi when your phone has to do tougher tasks. This helps, indeed.

Avoid multi tasking. We don’t have to tell you that the battery runs out faster when you use your phone for different tasks at the same time.

So try and listen to music or watching videos on your phone when you aren’t using the phone at the same time as when you are performing other asks.

Turn off apps that aren’t needed. Apps running in your phone when you don’t need them can cause your battery to drain out faster.
