[tips] Increase Battery Life in Android

Posted by Dewa Made Cakrabuana Aristokra On 7:04 PM 3 comments

Long time ago, I was laugh at Blackberry user. They carrying charger wherever they are!
yes... I was laugh....

That era, I was use my old N70. But now, when I hold my Android phone and do the same thing, i realize that...
..all the fancier phones seem to never hold enough juice to last more than a couple of days even just a whole day at a time. Some phones might even die midday despite just hanging there on your pocket in the class.
That's frustrating...
But thx again for all the genius-head Android developer. They have some tips to increase battery life on Android device. You can give it a try too...

1. Control Auto Sync
 Go to setting > Accounts and sync and untick Auto-sync. This will stop phone to sync calender, contact, etc and connect to internet without our permission. I think I can see my email my self by clicking Gmail Apps. Don’t worry, you can still sync those account manually if you need to, like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, etc. By default, it checks for new messages every 15 minutes which can be quite a strain on your battery. Make it check every hour instead or even better, let it update manually.

Then go to Settings > Location and security > Use wireless networks and untick. This will disable Google anonymous data.
Another auto sync is Samsung Apps and auto backup.  Disabled it by go to...

  • Settings > Applications > Samsung Apps > "OFF"
  • Settings > Privacy > Back up my data > [UNTICK]


2. Control Display Usage
You may know it (by see graph on setting > about phone > battery usage) sceen is the the most voracious battery eater. Try lowering the brightness when indoors. More often than not, the light inside will be bright enough to see your phone’s screen clearly even with the backlight turned way down. Adjust it to a comfortable level though since you still want your phone to be useable. Turn off automatic brightness as well.

Hand-in-hand with lowering the brightness of your phone, you can also reduce the time until the screen turns off when not in use. Unless you plan to use your phone very often (for checking incoming mails for instance), try to put this at the lowest setting possible.
  •  Settings > Display > Brightness : Set it to Minimum
  •  Settings > Display > Touch key light duration : "set as minimum as you can"
  •  Settings > Display > Auto adjust screen power : [TICK]
Another thing that helps is to use a dark, static wallpaper. Stay away from live wallpapers and choose a wallpaper that’s mostly black or just use a black background altogether. That’s part of the reason Android menus have a black background: it consumes the least amount of power and resources.


3. Disable Fast Dormancy
I don't know much 'bout this, but every one said that. I try on my phone and I feel some difference.
Phone > Keypad > *#9900# > "Disable fast dormancy" > Quit 


4. Use "Juice Defender" or "Green Power"
"... increase your battery life: x2,93!"
That are battery saver apps. You can download this app from market. Some users seems experiencing better battery life without those apps, so best solution is to test them by yourself.


5. Wise with Display
It is a major problem  of killing battery, so keep your brightness less which is acceptable by you. Today maximum android phones have LED screen and they use more energy for brightness and colors so use nice and dark blackish walls and themes.

 Head into Settings –> Display –> Brightness too hard for you? Use widget, "Brightness Level", you can find it in Android Market. It help you to change brightness setting one click on your homescreen.

"Brightness Level widget"
Really usefull widget. You should try it!

whew... that are tips for non-rooted user... give us more dangerous tips,,, ha!

As to dark or black wallpapers, the way lcd works, is it the backlight evenly shines on the lcd matrix, which in turn dimms certain pixsels to stop the light from getting through. As opposed to plasma or OLED (samsung galaxy), LCD TAKES MORE ENERGY TO GENERATE DARKER IMAGES. You can save energy by turning the backlight down, but not by using dark color schemes

You can also get apps that do all this stuff automatically like Battery Save Junky Pro and Juice defender ect...
