If you have an Android smartphone, you know how fast battery power can drain sometimes. While it’s true that activities like playing games and streaming music and video can burn a lot of juice, a lot of power gets drained away just a little bit at a time. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to save on your power.
First, open settings on your phone. The interface will be a little different depending on which model of Android you have. You may find it under Battery or under My Device. Look around, it’s there.
Once you tap Power-Saving Mode to turn it on, you should see other options when you tap Power-Saving Mode.
You can limit the maximum performance of your CPU. A warning, though, this could slow you down in a game or other app that needs a lot of brain power. You can choose not to enable it, or remember to turn it off if you plan on playing a particular game.
There’s also an option to lower the brightness of the screen. If you find the screen too dim with this on, you can uncheck it.
You can also turn off haptic feedback. Haptic feedback is a vibration that offers you a sense of touch when you tap a touchscreen. It’s a way of letting you know that you’ve actually pressed the button you meant to press. If you find it helps you navigate your phone better, you can choose to turn it on.
Depending on your device and version of Android, you may have other power-saving options.
