Top 8 Tips to Save Battery Energy

Imagine: a smartphone battery charge is 17%, you’re outside, and 30 minutes later you have a sudden work call. Will the battery last until the end of the meeting? Of course! It’s just worth taking care of saving energy in advance. Here’s what you can do.

Turn Down the Display Brightness

The screen is a major consumer of energy. Temporarily reduce the brightness to the minimum comfortable. Even better – turn on the automatic mode in the settings, and the smartphone will optimize the display backlighting to the light around you. You will still be able to enter your Bizzo Casino login, chat with friends, or work with a decreased darkness.

Give Preference to Dark Screensavers

AMOLED-displays of modern smartphones display only colored parts of the picture, and black pixels are simply “not included”. This can be used: by choosing a picture with large black areas for your screensaver, you’ll save the device’s battery. By the way, the “live” wallpaper, on the contrary, “spends” the charge faster: moving images make the screen work more actively and engage the processor of the smartphone.

Reduce Screen Timeout

Reducing screen timeout helps keep your phone charged longer.

For example, up to 10 seconds. This is usually enough time to read a new notification. The faster the display goes out, the less power the smartphone will use.

Remove Unnecessary Display

Temporarily disable the “Always on Display” feature that prevents the screen from turning off completely when you lock it: the date, time, battery status, or app notifications remain on the screen. You can also change the resolution of the screen: lower quality of display content means a more stable battery level.

Turn off Unnecessary Apps and Functions

The battery is strongly affected by the constant data transmission of the mobile network, but we understand that not everyone is ready to turn off the mobile Internet, even temporarily. Therefore, we advise you to deactivate the functions that you don’t use here and now, such as: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. And it’s worth turning off automatic app updates, which also eats up the charge. You can selectively do a manual update if needed.

Moreover, smartphones initially do their best to conserve battery power by going to sleep or low-power mode, but if you’re constantly getting notifications from Twitter or WhatsApp, you’re severely reducing the life of your phone without recharging.

Slow Down the Speed of the Internet

There are situations where the internet isn’t as important as other smartphone features. For example, if you are looking for a way out of a cave, you are more likely to need a flashlight than the ability to reply to a message in a messenger. In this case, you can go into the settings and limit the mobile data rate to 2G – so the phone will spend less energy searching for networks, which will save the battery.

This is also relevant when traveling: if you have a 4G network or higher selected in the settings, and you are in a region where 3G networks are available, the device will constantly waste energy scanning for networks.

Take Emergency Measures

Samsung smartphones have an extreme power saving mode, which limits CPU performance, app background data transfer and forcibly reduces the brightness of the screen. Just activate the mode and your smartphone will last longer, even if only a couple of percent of the charge is left.

Turn off GPS

GPS location tracking consumes a lot of power. A complete shutdown will be the most economical solution, but it’s best used only in emergency situations.

To select which apps can track geo data, go to “Manage apps” – “Manage permissions” – “Location” in the settings and go through the list allowing access to geo-positioning to individual utilities and only when used.
