Smartphone’s have recently become extremely poplar. They are like mini tablets right in our hands that we can carry everywhere with us. Even if you have the best mobile broadband service, you would still prefer to use your smartphone to check your recent emails or social media updates using the apps. There are apps for almost everything, but these apps are also a major drain on the smartphone’s battery.
Android mobile phones are no different. If you are fully using the features of your Android phone, you will realize that your battery barely lasts for a day. Fortunately there are certain ways following which you can ensure an increase in the battery life of your Android phone.
How to Save Battery and RAM ?
1. Dim the Screen Brightness
The large, colorful display on the screen of your Android eats away its battery life. Use the ‘Auto-Brightness’ feature on your phone, so that the screen can adjust its brightness automatically according to the light in the surroundings.
2. Reduce the Screen Timeout
Another way to save battery by restricting the use of its display is by reducing the timeout for the screen. Keep it as short as possible so that the display does not drain the battery. 30 sec or less is the best option because at times the screen has simply lit up because you accidently tapped on it.
3. Disable Bluetooth & Wi-Fi
Who doesn’t love the constant connectivity? But it is a big hole in your battery life. So disable the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi when it is not in use. You will notice a drastic change in your battery life; this will easily add an hour or more to it.

4. Use GPS with Care
Don’t just go crazy while using the GPS. There are numerous apps on your Android phone that are using GPS tracking to provide suitable services to you. These include social network apps, Places app, Google maps, etc.
5. Save Apps on your Micro-SD Storage Card
Running and installing apps on your Android phone is what uses up all the RAM space. Try to install application on your Micro-SD storage card instead. This will free RAM space and speed up your phone. The pre-installed apps cannot be shifted to the SD card, but games, Skype, songs, movies, etc. can be saved on the storage card.
6. Install Android Boosting Software
Since, the battery issue of Android phones is highly common, there are many Android battery boosting software available on the market. They help monitor the battery life of your Android phone and help kill unused tasks with just a tap. The same can be done by using the task manager on your Android phone, but it will have to be done numerous times a day manually. So to save yourself all that trouble, download an app that does it for you. This creates space in your RAM that other apps need to run, also making the phone faster.
7. Activate the Power Saver Mode
Your Android phone contains a Power Saver mode, in which you can set the default setting for your phone’s power-consuming features. This mode automatically turns off when your battery is 20% left, but you can set it to turn on sooner so that your battery lasts longer.
8. Turn off Vibration
Putting your ringtone to ‘Ring and Vibrate’ consumes a lot of battery life. If you are in a place where you know that you wont here the ringtone, then switch off the vibration as soon as you leave that place. If you are in a meeting put your phone on silent and keep it in front so that you can see the screen light up when it rings, instead of keeping it on vibration and in your pocket.
9. Turn off Notifications
When your Android phone receives a notification, its screen lights up and it rings. This uses the battery life as well, so turn off nonessential notification so that your phone’s battery can last longer.
10. Turn of Auto-Sync
Auto-sync means that every time you go online with your Android phone it will sync each an every application installed on your phone. That also means that the space in your RAM is used up. Change the sync settings to manual, just leaving apps like your Gmail on auto-sync so that you only receive the most important updates on time.
