Extend battery life

Hey, so if you want your phone to last longer without charging all the time, here’s what you can do. First, make sure to charge your phone all the way up. Then, turn off unnecessary sounds, like those clicks when you press the keys. Instead of blasting your music through the speaker, use wired headphones.

After taking pictures, close the camera viewfinder because it can use up a lot of battery. Here’s a cool tip: you can make your phone automatically save power when the battery is low. To do this, check your battery status on the start screen, swipe left, and go to Settings > battery saver.

When your phone is in battery saver mode, you might not be able to change some app settings. To save even more power, set your phone screen to turn off quickly. Swipe left on the start screen, tap Settings > lock + wallpaper > Screen times out after.

You can also use a dark theme to save power. Swipe left on the start screen, tap Settings > theme, and pick Dark under Background. If your screen is too bright, adjust the brightness in Settings > brightness.

When it comes to connections, check your mail less often and only turn on Bluetooth when you need it. Use Wi-Fi instead of mobile data and stop your phone from constantly searching for Wi-Fi networks. You can do this by swiping left on the start screen, going to Settings, and turning Wi-Fi off.
