Smartphone batteries do not last indefinitely, and some devices have an almost embarrassingly short screen-on time. Those large, AMOLED and LCD screens, as well as taxing apps, are obvious drains on your battery, but there are many things you can do behind the scenes to extend the life of your Android. Here are a few simple tips to help you out.

1. Adjust Screen Brightness
The most common setting is 'Auto,' which automatically adjusts the brightness to match the situation. While auto brightness is convenient, it can have a negative impact on battery life. If you really want to extend the life of your phone's battery, the most effective approach is to reduce the brightness of your screen. Because the display is the most power-hungry component of a phone, lowering the brightness can help you get the most out of the battery.
2. Shut Down Unnecessary Radios
It's great that today's phones have LTE, NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, but do you really need all five of these features turned on all the time? WiFi is a significant one. When you're not connected to a WiFi network, your phone will keep looking for one. You've probably seen the notification "WiFi networks nearby." Simply turning off WiFi when you're not in areas where you usually use WiFi can help you save battery life.
If you don't use a Bluetooth headset, it's best to keep Bluetooth turned off at all times. When not using the phone's navigation feature, GPS can be turned off.
3. Kill Background Apps
Closing the app with the back or home buttons is insufficient; the app may continue to run in the background, draining battery power. You should go into your device's recent and background apps and manually close them. This usually ensures that they are not running in the background and draining the battery.
4. Ditch Fancy Widgets and Live Wallpapers
The appealing live wallpapers, motion-sensing perspective wallpapers, and auto-updating widgets for weather, stocks, and news are all appreciated. They do, however, absorb a significant amount of background power. These shenanigans must be avoided if longer battery life is a priority. When you enable Android's Battery Saving mode, unwanted animations and graphics, as well as haptic feedback such as vibration and sound, are disabled. This is done to avoid wasting any power that is not required.
These tips can help you get you maximum juice from your phone battery. Additionally, you can also restrict access to your location to apps. This will prevent many apps from hunting your location in the background and draining the phone battery.
