These popular functions of your smartphone are draining the battery

There is a number of functions present in any modern smartphone which are making the devices very useful and also user-friendly filled with beautiful aesthetic elements of the interface design. Unfortunately, some of these functions are pretty energy-consuming while others are also consuming other resources of your device as well.

This article will help you to point out the exact functions which can be turned off if you actually do not use them. It is quite possible that you are not even aware of them reducing the amount of charge in your battery pretty quickly.

Constant synchronisation

One of the functions used in the majority of modern smartphone systems is constant synchronisation which is scanning all of the changes in the information on your device and saves it to your cloud account. This is certainly very helpful as with the help of such a technology, you will be able to retrieve the data pretty easily. There is still a problem. Such a constant process of performance also means the batter is losing its energy pretty quickly.

There is certainly no point in recommending to shut the entire synchronisation down and it might not actually be necessary in many situations or even possible. Yet, you can go to the settings of your device and explore the possibilities for turning the functions off and check how this will affect the time of work of your smartphone.

Automatic adaptation of brightness of the screen

Another function which the majority of people are using without having any second thoughts is the automatic adaptation of the level of brightness in the screen. This process is extremely energy-consuming even though it might seem the function is actually helping you to keep the most optimum level of brightness which is supposed to be saving the battery.

Indeed, if the function is reducing the level of brightness of the screen when it is dark in the room, this will save the battery, however, the process of indication of the surrounding brightness itself is not an easy trick for your device and it requires a sufficient amount of energy.

Do not worry, even if you decide to resign from this option, you will still be able to change the brightness manually at any moment just as it was done with the previous versions of iOS and Android systems.

Voice search

If you are using voice commands with your smartphone, you are making it keep the microphone of the device turned on all the time. Certainly, there are also other processes going on in the background since your gadget is literally ready to respond to you at any moment and it takes a lot of energy from it.

In case you actually do not use the function at all, it might be a good idea to resign from it altogether as there is absolutely no point in keeping it turned on draining the battery out while you are not making any particular use of it. In other situations, you might be willing to check the settings available for the function and explore the options provided for its customisation which certainly depend on the particular model of a device you are using.

A constant updating process of programmes

Many users of smartphones with a great memory capacity feel free to store whatever apps they prefer on their devices. It might seem there is nothing wrong with it since there is plenty of space and one can install even more without any worries.

Indeed, when it comes to the memory, you might still have it even if there is a hundred apps and games installed. Yet, this is a rather poor practice and you should avoid it.

The problem with creating such gigantic libraries of apps on one’s device is in the fact all of them are receiving updates which will not be possible if they are not active in the background. You can imagine how much energy a large library of apps can use in such a way. Of course, it Is not such a problem if you actually use all of the programmes stored on your devices, however, in the majority of situations it is simply impossible. For that reason, it is highly recommended to keep your phone neat and not to store dozens of apps just in case if one day you will need them out of sudden. In addition to it, you should immediately delete any app you find unsatisfying or unnecessary and not to postpone this moment for later when you will just forget you have such an app on the device.

By the way, a massive amount of apps on your phone also means total chaos with notifications if you do not customise them appropriately. Moreover, keeping the function of notifying you about various things regarding each and every app you have on your phone will also cost you some energy.
