All tips for using smartphones, anyone should know

Automatic brightness adjustment is a tip for using smartphones effectively

We often talk to each other that phones keep maximizing the screen brightness to enjoy, but in fact, this is not the optimal solution. The best way is that you should set up automatic screen brightness adjustment mode, and currently most smartphones running Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry support this feature. This is  a  very effective and sustainable smartphone trick , you should create a habit of using this mode by default.


Once the auto brightness mode is activated, the device will use the sensors to measure the ambient brightness, thereby adjusting the screen brightness accordingly. For example, when you walk into work, it automatically reduces screen brightness to both save battery power and make our eyes less painful. When you go out in the sun, the device will increase the brightness again to help you see the content clearly. If you only set the maximum or minimum brightness, you need to adjust your hands when moving between different lighting environments, not good for the eyes and battery.

  • On iOS:  Settings> Wallpaper & Brightness> Automatic Brightness
  • On Android:  Settings> Display & Display> Brightness> Auto brightness adjustment
  • On Windows Phone:  Settings> Brightness> Auto adjust

Screen off timer

Also related to the screen, I know that many of you often forget not to press the lock button again after using it. During that idle time, the screen is still active and were making a significant reduction in battery life. Therefore, you need to turn on automatic screen off and this feature is also available on most smartphones on the market. Self-off time you should install about 30 seconds to 1 minute because it is not too short for the screen to turn off when we have not finished reading the content, nor too long to drain the device battery.

  • On iOS:  Settings> General> Auto-lock
  • On Android:  Settings> Display & Display> Sleep (or Time off)
  • On Windows Phone:  Settings> Lock screen> Lock screen after ...

Limit use of live wallpapers

Many Android and iOS smartphones currently support live wallpapers, but this feature causes the devices battery to drain quickly because the device has to perform more complicated processing operations than just displaying a single still image. Best. In particular, with Android, the interactive wallpaper (for example, the wallpaper with the fish swimming away when you touch it) is the cause of the very strong battery suction. My advice is that you only use simple wallpaper backgrounds, and especially those who use Android, you should limit the installation of animated wallpapers with interactive capabilities. Turning off the feature to use live wallpaper is a  tip  for optimal smartphone usage , especially it will help your smartphone save battery life significantly.

Do not exit the app when not in use

There is a habit that users of iOS and Android devices default to correct, that is to regularly close applications running multitasking to help the device save more battery power. We all think that machine resources will be freed up and the operating system less active, so the battery consumption will decrease. However, Scotty Loveless - a former Apple employee who used to work at the Genius Bar technical counter - pointed out that this is completely wrong.

When you close an app, you will remove it from your phones RAM. This is what you want to do, but it is not. Reason? The next time you open the app, your device will have to re-launch the app from scratch and put it in RAM again. When opening and closing apps continuously happen like that, your device will perform more than we just let that app run multitasking.


Moreover, you should remember that most mobile platforms like iOS, Android, Windows Phone will automatically close or close apps when the device needs more RAM, so what you are doing is essentially something. programming to execute already. Remember one more thing: you are the device user, not the device cleaner.

Check background data usage mode

Some apps require a regular Internet connection to update information, for example Facebook needs a network to display notifications, Gmail needs a network to get email immediately. In parallel, there are also applications that do not need to use the Internet permanently, such as games, online music software, weather software ... because we do not have the need for constant updates. You can turn off background data usage of such apps to save battery power and save 3G charges.

  • On iOS: Go to  Settings> General> Background App Refresh.
  • On Android: Go to  Settings> Network & Wireless> Data usage> select an app you want> check the Data usage restrictions box.
  • On Windows Phone:  Run Data Sense app> press menu button> Settings> turn on Restrict background data button (Restrict background data - not recommended on Windows Phone because it will limit usage data of all apps, reducing smartphone efficiency)

Use the LED flash only when necessary

 The on-board LED flash illuminates the subject when we are taking pictures in dark environments. However, there are a number of friends who always let the flash turn on, that is, even though its bright enough, the lights are still on, especially when shooting outdoors. I asked them to let others know when they finished taking pictures. The problem is that the LED flash causes our device to drain the battery quite a lot, so you should only use it when needed, not as ineffective. If you are wondering when to turn on the flash, you can set the phone to Auto Flash mode, the device will automatically decide to activate the light in necessary situations.


Limited display of battery information

It sounds… surprising, but in fact, this is a very effective way. The display of battery information (eg% battery) will make you feel more anxiety about the remaining capacity, so you take out your phone every time to check. The problem is that every time you put the device from sleep to ready to go, it consumes power, not to mention the amount of battery used for the monitor and other types of connections when the device is about to run. . Then why do we have to accept battery drain just to… check battery capacity? Just let it go, when you really need it, take it out.

Be careful of the temperature

Avoid leaving your phone in a car, in the trunk of a motorbike when parked outside in the sun or in direct sunlight. Your battery will be drained quite quickly as it heats up and performance degrades, and the life of components will also be reduced if placed in high temperature environments for a long time. This is also the warning that you can easily find in the box when you first purchase.
