Let your smartphone live longer
You use vibrations for notifications
Your phone, like any other tool or device, ages and loses effectiveness the more you use it, so little extras, like vibrating notifications, are habits that make your phone’s job harder.
You keep apps open that you’re not using
Unused apps can eat up the battery life of both iPhones and Androids. Swiping out of apps you aren’t using or no longer need is an easy solution. Which will help extend the battery life of your phone while also freeing up valuable storage space, too
You allow unnecessary permissions
Ride-sharing apps need your location to pick you up, but other apps might not need this permission. Be picky about which apps you grant such permissions to and take away permissions you deem unnecessary.
You have one of these apps
The apps that drain your battery the most are Snapchat, Google Maps, Netflix, Amazon, and Facebook, according to AdWeek. The reason Facebook particularly kills battery life is because it keeps running in the background – even when you’re not using it
Your screen is always extremely bright
Make sure you turn on adaptive brightness in the display menu. This change means your phone will automatically adjust the screen brightness to match your environment.
You leave your phone plugged in
Keeping your phone plugged in when it has a full battery causes damage to the battery itself. It’s not that your phone “overloads” with power; it’s that heat build up damages the battery.
You charge your phone 100 percent overnight
Waking up to a fully charged phone may seem like a great way to start the day, but leaving your device plugged in overnight is a bad idea. When a phone has reached 100 percent charge, it will continue to get trickle charges and these extra extra charges keep the battery working nonstop.
You don’t keep your software up to date
Putting off device updates does more harm than good for your phone. iPhone and Android makers push updates to make your user experience better and so that your phone functions properly. Make sure to keep up with app-specific updates as well.
