Tips for extending battery life
Use the battery management features
Manage your connections
- Turn off wireless connections such as mobile data, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth when not in use.
- Turn GPS on only when a precise location is needed, such as while using navigation or location-based apps. See Location settings.
- Turn on Airplane mode when you don't need any wireless connections and you don't want to receive calls or messages.
Manage your display
Lowering the brightness, letting the display sleep when not in use, and keeping it simple helps save battery power.
- Lower the screen brightness when you don't need it. See Screen brightness.
- Set the screen timeout to a shorter time. See Setting when to turn off the screen.
- Don't use a live wallpaper for your Home screen. Animation effects are nice to show off to other people but they drain your battery.
Changing your wallpaper to a plain, black background can also help a little. The less color is displayed, the less battery is used. See Setting your Home screen wallpaper.
Manage your apps
- Battery optimization helps extend battery standby time. See Battery optimization for apps.
- Install the latest software and application updates. Updates sometimes include battery performance improvements.
- Uninstall or disable apps that you never use.
Many apps run processes or sync data in the background even when you're not using them. If there are apps that you don't need anymore, uninstall them.
If an app came preloaded and can't be uninstalled, disabling the app can still prevent it from continuously running or syncing data. See Disabling an app.
Limit background data and sync
Background data and sync can use a lot of battery power if you have many apps syncing data in the background. It’s recommended not to let apps sync data too often. Determine which apps can be set with longer sync times, or sync manually.
- In Settings, tap Users & accounts and check what types of data are being synced in your online accounts. When the battery is starting to run low, temporarily disable syncing some data.
- If you have many email accounts, consider prolonging the sync time of some accounts.
- When you’re not traveling from one place to another, sync weather updates of only your current location, rather than in all of your named cities. Open the Weather app, and then tap to edit and remove unneeded cities.
- Choose widgets wisely.
Some widgets constantly sync data. Consider removing the ones that are not important from your Home screen.
- In Google Play Store, tap > Settings, and then tap Auto-update apps > Do not auto-update apps if you're fine with updating apps from Google Play Store manually.
To squeeze in a little bit more battery power, try these tips:
- Tone down the ringtone and media volume.
- Minimize the use of vibration or sound feedback. In Settings, tap Sound > Advanced and choose which ones you don't need and can disable.
- Check your apps’ settings as you may find more options to optimize the battery.
