One of the major problems with any smartphone, be it Android, iOS or Windows Phone, is the battery backup. Even though mobile technology has reached big levels, there hasn’t been any advancement in battery consumption of phones. Most of the smartphones available today have only battery backup of less than a day with normal usage. Battery backup is one of the most important aspect when you are travelling.
Now if you own or using a Windows Phone 8 device, you can improve or save battery backup with these few tips.
1. Battery Saver:
If you instantly want to save battery, you can turn on Battery saver from the Settings of you phone. Once you enable it automatic email receiving will be paused, apps will not run in background and also live tiles wont update. This will provide better battery backup for your phone. You can set when you want to enable the battery saver option.
2. Screen Brightness:
This is one area which can consume too much battery. If you are mostly using the phone indoors, you can set the screen brightness to lowest level.
3. Email Sync:
Although you can set push email notifications for new emails, if you are running on low battery you can select manual sync from the options in email settings for the account.
4. Lock Screen:
Lock screen is set to time out by default after 1 minute, but you can set it to lower value to conserve battery.
Windows Phone 8 comes in two background, dark and light apart from the accent colors. It is always good to choose dark background to save battery.
6. Turn of Unwanted connections:
If you have turned on Bluetooth, the phone will be continuously searching for new devices and trying to connect to them. If you aren’t using this service, it is better to turn them off.
These tips should definitely able to squeeze another one or two hours extra from the normal battery backup.
