It doesn’t matter whether you are using the latest Android phone or the most amazing Apple phone or tablet currently available in the world today, the same problem for all smartphones and devices is….battery life. As long as we have apps and data loading up in the background, they will suck the life out of just about any battery.
Here, we let you in which ones are the best suckers in your beloved devices.
Actually, you can easily see what is actually using up the battery by doing this…go to settings, select Battery and then Batter Use. There you have it, and if I am not mistaken, you will probably see some programs and apps that used up battery power without you even loading them. Some of the apps I have never used in my entire life, actually, but it runs in the background because other apps depends on it.
Expert or no expert, any mobile phone seller can tell you that the biggest power leech is your screen and most of us have it set to ‘Auto’ because we want to actually SEE when we are using the phone. In actuality, we can live without such extreme beauty most of the time, especially if we are using the phone for ‘talking’. Just set the screen brightness up whenever you want to use the phone to tweet, check Facebook, or reply emails. And then set it down to right about 10 to 20 percent. For those who are desperate to save your battery life, it wouldn’t be troublesome at all but for the rest of us who are back to lugging around extra batteries, chargers and power banks, well, we can leave the screen on as bright as we possibly want it to be (because we paid for better displays. Ah well….)
And if all else fail, of course there are apps for preserving battery life, what, are you kidding me? There is an app for everything these days.
Jokes aside, I have used JuiceDefender for both tabs and mobile phones before and it does its job well enough. It automates and manages the flow and use of juice in the devices for you. It is great for newbies who are struggling with dying batteries. Basically, it is your data connection manager. Your data connection (when you are not on wifi), sucks quite a bit of battery life too so, with Juice Defender, it logs off and logs on every 15 to 30 minutes to see if you have new stuff to check out on your phone. Juice Denfender manages your Wifi connection for you too, it logs in, checks and then logs off. If you have other cooler apps that is better than Juice Defender, please share it with us and our readers in the comments section.
