So here, we offer some useful power-saving tips to extend the battery life of Android.

User Guide : How To Save Battery on Android Phone

Tip 1Kill Unused Background Apps

You may think you have turned off one running app completely by pressing Home button, but actually it is still running in the background, which is the main reason to drain out the battery. So you should close those apps that no longer need to run in the background with a task manager to save your power.

Tip 2Reduce Screen Brightness

Go to Settings > Display > Brightness to adjust the brightness to a suitable level. Please keep in mind that the higher of the level, the more power will be consumed. So try to turn down the brightness as low as possible only if you can see the display well.

Tip 3Shorten Screen Timeout

The shorter of the screen timeout, the more power you save. Because your screen will not shut off until the screen timeout is matched. So you can go to Settings > Display > Screen timeout to adjust it to a lower number.

Tip 4Turn off Wi-Fi When Necessary

Wi-Fi is really a big power-consumer. You don't need to turn on Wi-Fi unless you are downloading files or something. So why don't you turn it off when you are not using it. Try Settings > WLAN to turn off Wi-Fi.

Tip 5Turn off GPS

Once GPS is activated, it constantly searches for satellites. So turn off GPS in your device unless you need to track certain locations or something. You may try to turn it off by going through Settings > Location, uncheck Enable GPS.

Tip 6Turn off Bluetooth

Bluetooth, also a big power-killer, keeps wasting your battery resource when you are not using it. So remember to turn it off after usage by going through Settings -> Bluetooth.

Tip 7Turn off Vibrating Mode

You need to switch your phone to vibrating mode when you are on a meeting or some quiet occasion. In normal time, you should turn off the phone vibration feature because this little gadget in your device will consume battery every time when the vibration is generated. Try Settings -> Sound, uncheck Sound and vibration .
