Wondering why your smartphone battery goes dead so quickly, after all it cost you a lot of money.
So many of us find ourselves wondering if we have been scammed by our OEM’s, some of the popular brands in Africa, Samsung, Tecno, Infinix and iPhone have been accused over the years of putting a 2000mAh in a 5000mAh phone.
This accusations are largely untrue, as many customers don’t understand the factors that make their phone battery to last longer.
Below are the common reasons many smartphone users are guilty of that makes their phone battery not to last long.
Top 10 Reasons Your Phone Battery Dies So Quickly
- Your phone screen brightness is set too high. This is one thing that consumes your battery power. When your phone screen brightness is set high, then don’t expect your battery to last too long.
- Your phone is on 4G network. 4G consumes more data than 2G and 3G, so also does 3G consume more data than 2G. The thing is, if you are not doing any heavy download or streaming, turnoff your 4G network and switch to a less battery consuming 3G network.
- Your software isn’t up-to-date. It is possible that there is a bug in your software that is making it drain your battery, and the programmers have improved on it. You’d need to upgrade to the latest version.
- Your phone has hardware issues. Yes, hardware issues can lead to your phone going dead real quick. Getting a professional opinion on things is a good step to take.
- Apps and data are automatically syncing. When you are automatically syncing your photos, videos, apps, music, and app data, then your phone battery is likely to go off faster.
- Using battery savers. I don’t like this apps, and neither should you. They claim to save your battery, but in the end keep running in the background and consume a lot of power.
- Using resource intensive apps. When you are making use of resource intensive apps like games then your battery is most likely to die quickly. So if you fall into that circle of game addicts, just get yourself ready to charge your phone.
- You’re overdoing it with battery-draining apps and activities. Some battery draining apps are really good, and we can barely do without them, but when you are using them too frequently, then your phone battery is likely to go off quick. Google Maps for instance is a well known battery draining app.
- Background apps. This is a top suspect, and you need to be on the look out for apps that are not useful but keep running in the background. To do this, you don’t need to install a battery saver app, but simply use your device apps manager.
- Notifications. Yes, when your notifications keep going off all day, you are likely to lose power soon. Notification sounds, screen wake up, and led lights are activities that consume battery, so look into them.
