We all know how frustrating it is to see your phone’s battery drain too fast, especially when you need it the most. There’s no denying the fact that battery problem is one of the most common problem people face with their smartphones. So here are 8 simple ways to extend your phone’s battery life…
1. Avoid Charging Your Phone Overnight
Did you know that keeping your phone plugged in even after its fully charged can overheat the battery and cause damage? If you want your phone’s battery to last longer, avoid charging it all night and keep your smartphone charged between 60% and 80%. Once in three months you can let the battery drain out completely and then charge it 100%. This helps maintain the charge capacity.
2. Turn Down The Brightness
Your phone’s screen consumes maximum power, so avoid setting your screen to auto-brightness. It’s a better idea to dim the screen’s brightness or manually change it whenever necessary. Try it and you’ll be surprised to see how much this helps in improving the battery life.
3. Avoid Keeping Your Phone On Vibration Mode
It’s fine to keep your phone on vibration mode for incoming calls but not for messages and other notifications, as it quickly drains the battery. Vibration consumes even more power than ringtones. To switch off the vibration mode, go to Settings > Sound and only opt for the ‘Vibrate for calls’ option.
4. Switch Off Bluetooth, GPS And Wi-fi When Not In Use
Keeping the bluetooth, Wi-fi and GPS on for long can also quickly drain your phone’s battery. You can save power by turning them off when not in use. Stay connected to Wi-Fi, wherever possible, as it uses less power than 3G or 4G.
5. Get Rid Of Unwanted Apps
Apps that run in the background can end up being a big drain on your battery. Declutter your phone’s home screen and delete those dozen apps you hardly use. On Android, all you need to do is go to Settings > Apps. Select the apps you want to disable, and tap Uninstall. On iOS, tap and hold any app, then tap the X in the top left corner. Your phone will not only work faster but also consume less battery.
Lastly, it’s not just the condition of the battery but also the phone that matters. To extend the life of your smartphone, we’d recommend buying the OnsiteGo Extended Warranty plan.

So its wise to back up your phone with an extended warranty plan. The OnsiteGo Extended Warranty plan covers all the defects and malfunctions covered in a standard manufacturer’s warranty plan.
