Tips to Extend the Battery Life of Your Smartphone

Those of us who have smartphones love them, but we realize they have one big fault. Their batteries do not last long enough. You can send emails, listen to music, and make calls, but all smartphones are limited by their battery life. While there are several companies working to improve this issue, there are a few things that you can do with your current phone to increase its battery life.

Dimming that smartphone screen

A bright, cluttered screen display sucks the life out of batteries. By switching your screen's brightness level to the lowest you can endure, you'll already be doing a lot to increase the lifespan of your smartphone's battery.

Screen lighting

You can also change the number of seconds your screen stays lit once you have touched it. The more your screen stays lit once you have stopped using it, the more your battery will deplete.


A Bluetooth device is a massive drain on your battery as well. As it is continuously looking for outside signals, it is continuously draining your battery. So when you are in meetings or not expecting calls, shutting it off can make your smartphone battery last a lot longer.
