Battery capacity is an important factor to use all day long, therefore it is important to maintain battery health so that it remains quality. There have been many protection systems for smartphone batteries presented by smartphone brands. Smartphone designs are currently competing to present thin devices, so currently the battery system has been planted together with smartphones.
But the effect is dangerous because if the battery starts to become unhealthy, it will have a direct impact on the quality of smartphone performance. The following are steps to maintain smartphone battery capacity so that performance is maintained:
Optimize Battery Usage
Android devices already have a system to optimize battery usage. Can close all applications running in the background. Then check to see if you’re running an app that’s using too much battery power. While it can be done automatically to optimize the battery, you can do it manually to make sure it saves as much battery as possible.
Here’s how to use it:
- Select “Optimize now” to get started.
- Open the Settings app and select Device maintenance.
- Select Optimize now to run the tool.
- If you are not sure your device will automate, you can check by selecting the three dots in the right corner, selecting Advanced, and switching to Auto optimization.
Put the App to “Sleep”
Today’s Android devices can put apps to “sleep,” which ensures apps don’t run in the background when you’re not using them. This means they won’t receive notifications or updates, helping prevent these functions from draining your phone’s battery.
This option allows the app to run in the background only when you open it and prevents it from continuing background activity. Make sure you don’t put important apps to sleep, such as those you use for daily communication or work-related purposes. How to activate the mode by:
- Open the Settings app on your device and navigate to Device maintenance.
- Select Battery > Application power management.
- If you haven’t already, enable Put unused apps to sleep so that = can automatically put rarely used apps into sleep mode.
- Select Sleep apps to manually put apps to sleep when you don’t use them often.
- To add an app, tap the Plus icon in the top right corner of the screen. Select the application you want and press Add.
- You can remove an app from the list by selecting the three-dot icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and selecting Delete.
Follow the same steps above to add or remove “Sleep” apps as well as add or remove apps from Apps that aren’t put to sleep.
Enable Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness
Two features for battery health, Adaptive Battery and Adaptive Brightness, AI to learn how to use apps and as well as adjustment of your habits. The idea is that apps and displays will only draw power from the battery when needed.
Enable Adaptive Battery:
- Open the Settings app and select Device maintenance > Battery.
- Select App power management and make sure Adaptive battery is enabled.
- Open the Settings app and select Battery > Adaptive preferences. Make sure Adaptive battery is enabled.
If you’re having issues with apps like slow notifications, and possibly due to the Adaptive Battery feature, the only way to start over is to do a reset.
Enable Adaptive Brightness:
- Go to your phone’s settings and select Display.
- Find and tap Adaptive brightness, and enable it if it’s not already enabled.
- Unlike Adaptive Battery, you can reset Adaptive Brightness so that your phone will restart the learning process.
Use battery saving power mode
Finally, to maintain battery health, you can activate battery saving power mode when the battery level starts to get low. Android phones have several options to use as needed, including:
Maximum power saving mode, save the most battery (maximum) by blocking apps from using your data or location in the background, turning off Always On Display and using dark mode with simplified home screen.
Moderate power saving mode, blocks apps from running in the background and turns off Always On Display. Optimal (Optimized), the setting used every day. This should give you a “recommended balance of performance and battery life.”
High performance is something you shouldn’t go for if you’re trying to save battery, as it uses the maximum screen brightness and resolution.
That’s our discussion about how to take care of Android battery health for optimal performance. Hope this is useful for you and thanks for reading.
