Smartphone batteries don’t last forever, and some devices have almost embarrassing screen time. Those luscious big AMOLED and LCD screens and demanding apps are an obvious drain on battery, but there are plenty of things you can do behind the scenes to make your Android last longer. Let’s explore how to increase the battery on your smartphone.
How Android batteries work
First, some background: Most smartphones have either a lithium-ion battery or a lithium-polymer battery. However, both are actually lithium-ion and as such don’t have a “memory” meaning you can charge them from any level, you don’t have to fully discharge them before charging, and you don’t have to charge them until the 100 percent.
In fact, these types of batteries suffer from low-voltage problems, so it’s better to partially charge them (say, 20 to 90 percent) than to fully charge and discharge them. However, battery care is always open to debate, so for every piece of advice accepted there will be someone who says it doesn’t make a difference. Just find the ones that work for you and you can boost the battery on your android device.
Much to our chagrin, most devices released today do not have removable batteries. This looks like it won’t change any time soon. And even though most of them are close to 3,000 mAh, they still need to be optimized, especially for demanding new games. Take advantage of some of the following tips and get the most out of your smartphone.
1. Black wallpaper can increase battery
If your phone has an AMOLED screen (like most Samsung devices), use a dark colored background. Black wallpaper can increase battery life because AMOLED screens only illuminate colored pixels. Black pixels are not lit, so the more black pixels you have, or the darker, the less power it takes to light them.

• Now save the image and go to your Settings.
• From there, touch Wallpaper, press Choose wallpaper and scroll down to Gallery.
• You should be able to find the black wallpaper you just saved.
• Touch set as wallpaper and lock screen.
2.Snooze mode
Doze mode has been around since Android Marshmallow, but has been improved with newer versions of Android. Previously, Doze only worked when the smartphone has been idle for a while. But now, it can also work when you’re on the go (in your bag or pocket while you’re on the go, for example). The screen only needs to be off to work.
Doze mode essentially just turns off things you’re not using depending on how long it’s been since you’ve touched your phone. The network connection is severe and synchronization only occurs during specific intervals. When you’re away from your phone longer, more things like GPS, Wi-Fi scanning, and all syncs stop.
3. Turn off Google Assistant
Prevent your phone from always listening. Google Assistant is a fantastic feature and often very functional. The problem is that it can wreak havoc on your battery. Especially if you don’t actually use it or only use it occasionally.
Go to Google > Search from your Settings menu and tap Google Assistant > Settings title. On the next page, select your device and disable Google Assistant for better battery life.
4. Don’t let your apps fall behind
Keep your apps up to date. There’s a reason why developers constantly update apps, and most of the time it’s to optimize memory or battery. Keeping your apps up to date also means you have the best optimizations available. Similarly, remove old apps that you no longer use, as they may be running background processes that eat up RAM and battery life.
Once you’ve made sure your apps are up to date, you can review them individually and check if they’re optimized for battery life. This can be done quite quickly. Just go to your Settings and tap on Battery. From there, press the menu button (three dots at the top right of the screen) and go to Battery optimization. From there you can see which apps are optimized and change them. You can only change non-essential system apps. Watch the video below to see how this is done.
5. Use Greenify
Unlike many Android apps that claim to optimize performance and increase battery life, Greenify actually works. Greenify allows you to put other apps to sleep when they are not in use, preventing them from running in the background.
This frees up system resources and increases battery performance, but it requires some thought. For Greenify to be effective, you can’t just hibernate all installed apps. But since there are many Android apps that perform actions that you don’t necessarily know about or want, this is a useful tool.
