Is your Android Battery draining fast? Step 1: Turn off your location
Settings > Security & Location > Location
If using an Android Pie device, you will need to follow these steps instead:
Settings > Security & Location > Advanced > Scanning You can then disable WiFi Scanning and Bluetooth Scanning.
You can also block certain apps that do not require the use of your location. You can do this by going to:
Settings > Apps & Notifications > Advanced > App Permissions
Step 2: Dark Mode
Settings > Display > Advanced > Device Theme (from here you can activate the dark setting).
Step 3: Disable your phones screen pixels
Doing this will help to conserve your phone’s battery power, and unless you watch movies or use your phone in HD, you shouldn’t even see much of a downfall in quality.
Step 4: Auto-Sync Settings
Settings > Accounts (then turn off the Automatically Sync Data option).
Step 5: Manage apps access to background data
Settings > Apps & Notifications > Advance > Data Usage
Step 6: Switch to Lite or Progressive web apps
In simpler terms, by deleting the Twitter app on your phone and accessing it through your browser instead, your battery power should improve.
Step 7: Disable the Google Assistant feature
Unfortunately, Google does not make it easy for you to turn this feature off, but that is what we are here for!
Start by going on to the google app and tap the More tab. Then go to Settings, then under the Google Assistant heading tap Settings again. Next, you should tap the Assistant tab, you should then find your phone’s name at the bottom of the list. You can now turn off the Google Assistant option.
Step 8: Faulty Apps
Settings > Battery > Menu > Battery Usage
If you notice an app that you do not use regularly use is using up a lot of your battery’s power then you can simply try deleting it and seeing whether this makes a difference.
Step 9: Decide what apps you want to have working in the background
Settings > Apps & Notifications, then Advanced > Battery > Background Restriction
A third-party app called Greenify will also help stop apps from running in the background; this is mostly for older devices where you cannot stop apps from running in the background via settings. So, if you can, we recommend going through the settings option before downloading third-party apps.
Step 10: Change your WiFi settings
Settings > Network & Internet > WiFi > WiFi Preferences (you can then uncheck the turn on WiFi automatically option).
