11 Tips to Boost Your Android Phone's Battery Life

Top-notch Android smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) are powerful, but unfortunately, they don't have endless battery life. In fact, many Android phone users would be happy to make it through a single day, hoping that a nightly recharge is sufficient.

Sadly, it sometimes isn't. A number of factors have conspired to reduce gadget endurance over the past several years. Thinner designs with less room for batteries, larger and brighter screens, faster quad-core processors, more software that runs in the background, and power-hungry GPS radios all share responsibility. The move from 3G to 4G networks a few years ago—particularly of the LTE variety—has also taken its toll.

But there's much more to poor battery life results than that. Fortunately, there's plenty you can do to stem the flow of juice from your Android device. To write this article, I used a Google Nexus 5$179.99 at Amazon, as it's running the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat with no extra interface enhancements, but these tips should apply across just about any Android phone. Try these tips to extend your handset's battery life:



1. Use Dr. Battery - Fast Charger. Dr. Battery - Fast Charger is a FREE Battery app that can charger faster your phone 30% and extend your battery life up to 50% by finding apps and settings that drain power on your device


This app is the most efficient and professional Android power booster. Battery Doctor - Battery Saver helps user to save battery life just in a single Tap whenever it starts trickle. This smart battery optimizer gives your phone the ability to enable settings for killing background running apps while functioning as Memory Cleaner, Ram Booster, and Task Killer for a better battery performance. You can save battery life up to 2x - 4x more to boost your phone get along a lot more faster.

★ Fast Charging
Battery Fast Charge regulates the manner in which your device is charged with a Unique 3 Stage Charging system to ensure you get the most out of your battery and reminds you not to over charge. It also has features that can monitor and regulate power consumption.

★ Memory Boost
Clean up memory (RAM) and optimize phone speed by removing redundant background tasks.
Stop auto-start Apps to increase boot speed and reduce memory usage.
1-tap memory cleaner and booster widget makes it easy to clean your phone directly from the home screen.

★ Battery saver
Battery saver is more than a power optimizer app, which does not need online connectivity to perform tasks. Works best on even non root Android phones. So just leave the idea to replace your installed battery to get extra charging. Go extend battery life with deep sleep mode when your phone is not in use.

★ Clean Junk Files
Smart Clean helps to delete cache files, residual junk files to reclaim storage. Improve the performance of your device.

★ Phone Cooler
It monitors your phone’s temperature in real time and analyzes which apps are causing the overheating. This identification is the key to starting the cooling process that lowers the CPU temperature, keeping your phone in the normal range.

★ Device Information
Handy status of CPU, memory (RAM), GPU, battery and hardware features.
Keep track of memory (RAM), storage space and CPU/battery temperature.
Stop Apps from wasting battery life and causing device to overheat.
Tune Up task manager's memory thresholds to optimize your phone's performance

★ Monitor

Track your phone remaining charging time while managing essential tasks as a smart optimizer. Monitor App Consumption - See which system application i.e Bluetooth, Wifi or data GPRS consumes the more battery power while power optimizer commends you power management solution.

Key Features:
• Accurately show battery status and remaining time.

• Simple and Minimalistic interface for effective power management
• Kills unnecessary tasks with extremely simple one-tap Optimize button to save more.
• Easy battery saving and effective small size package with extensive features
• Continuous and timely updates


1. See what's sucking the most juice. Navigate to Settings > Battery to see an organized breakdown of what's consuming your phone's battery. Applications and features will display in a descending list of battery hogs. If you see an application you barely use or a feature you never use, you'll want to uninstall the app or turn off the feature.

2. Reduce email, Twitter, and Facebook polling. Set your various messaging apps to "manual" for the polling or refresh frequency, just as a test, and you'll instantly extend your device's battery life by a significant amount. Once you see what a difference that makes, try re-enabling just the most important ones, and possibly reducing their polling frequency in the process.

3. Turn unnecessary hardware radios off.
It's great that today's phones have LTE, NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, but do you really need all five activated 24 hours per day? Android keeps location-based apps resident in the background, and the constant drain on your battery will become noticeable, fast. If your phone has a power control widget, you can use it to quickly turn on/off GPS (the largest power drain), NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and LTE. On stock Android, swipe down to bring up the Notification bar, and then tap the icon on the top right corner.

4. Use the extra power saving mode if you have it. The aforementioned Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) both have Ultra Power Saving and Extreme Power Saving modes, respectively, that limits the phone to texting, phone calls, Web browsing, and Facebook. This can squeeze extra hours or even a day of standby time out of just a few remaining percentage points of battery.

5. Trim apps running in the background.
From Settings > Apps, swipe to the left; you'll see a list of apps that are currently running. Tap on each one to see what they're for; you can stop any apps that you don't need running in the background all of the time.
Android Battery Tips
6. Dump unnecessary home screen widgets and live wallpaper. Just because they're sitting on the home screen, seemingly inactive, doesn't mean they're not consuming power. This goes for widgets that poll status updates in the background, as well as ones that just sit there but look pretty and animated—not to mention animated live wallpaper. (But don't dump everything, as part of what makes Android great are the home screen customizations; just remove the ones you don't use.)

7. Turn down the brightness and turn off Automatic Brightness.
It's probably obvious at this point, but you'll be surprised by how much this one alone helps to improve battery life.

8. Update your apps. Applications often get updated to use less battery power, so you should make sure your apps are up to date. Even if you configured the phone for automatic updates, some apps still require that you manually install updates. Check for app updates in Google Play by hitting the menu key and going to My Apps.

9. Keep an eye on signal strength. If you're in an area with poor cellular coverage, the phone will work harder to latch onto a strong-enough signal. This has an adverse effect on battery life. There's not much you can do about this one, but keep in mind that this could be the culprit behind a seemingly weak battery; it's worth popping the phone into Airplane mode if you don't need data or voice calls.

10. Check the reviews. We conduct battery life tests on every single Android phone we review. Unsurprisingly, the results vary widely between handsets, even on the same network. When choosing a phone, make sure that real world talk time is sufficient. You can't go by what the manufacturer says; we see variances on the order of several hours of usage in both directions on a regular basis.

11. Buy a battery case or larger extended battery.
Battery cases combine a hardware enclosure, which protects your phone, with an extended battery that can double your phone's endurance. You can find models compatible with popular Android phones from a variety of manufacturers, such as the Mophie Juice Pack and Incipio Offgrid Battery Backup Case (both for the Samsung Galaxy S4).
