    1. Display Brightness : Brightness is the first major issue that eats up the battery on an android device.While watching a video,dialing a number,typing a message,playing a game,each and everytime the display is being used the battery gets discharged quickly as the amount of brightness is huge.By Decreasing the brightness level on the screen will save more than 30% of the battery usage.To decrease the brightness level follow the below steps.
      1.Open the application drawer from the home screen.
      2.Select the settings menu and move to the “display” submenu.
      3.Click on the brightness and decrease it to the lowest possible value.

 

  • Background Process : Eventhough an application is closed after being using,they are not ended completely instead a small background process will begin to run inorder to make the application to be accessed quickly for the next launch.Many number of background process running on the device will consume more amount of battery and the battery gets drained quickly.

1.Open the app drawer from the homescreen and click on settings.
2.Select the Apps menu and navigate to the “running” tab.

  • Live Wallpapers : Having a fancy and attractive live wallpaper on the android screen can make the mobile to look stylish but at the same time will take the battery’s lifetime.Any kind of animation and moving images on the wallpaper can affect the performance of the device along with the battery.

 

 

  • Disable Services : There are many services in the android mobile which will take up the battery’s life even when it is not active.Such kind of services can be disabled manually bu the user to prevent them from sharing the battery.

 

Connectivity Services such as GPS,Data Traffic,Wi-fi and Bluetooth can be disabled when they are not used.To do so launch the settings menu and turn off the unwanted services manually.

 

  • Homescreen Widgets : Filling the entire home screen with widgets and application shortcuts will use huge amount of the processor and degrades the performance and simultaneously reduces the speed of the android device.If a processor is very busy in scheduling the entire time for the widgets on the home screen then when a new process is started,naturally it will consume a lot battery as the load for the processor has started to increase and so avoid keeping all the widgets on the homescreen.
