To ensure smartphone users everywhere can get the most life out of their battery, Clean Master offers the following easy tips to preserve their device connectivity.

Clean Master Tips (Garlic) for Preserving Battery Life on Android Smartphones

  • Disable automatic time zones/time and the clock manually otherwise your device wil constantly be requesting location/time data and its almost entirely unnecessary.
  • Reduce the push frequency of email/weather/social media.
  • Disable wi-fi/data while playing offline games which present ads, for many apps they will be unable to push you ads during gameplay without a connection.
  • Try to charge the battery before it falls below 20%, it's not good to run them completely dry.
  • Use the official chargers for your devices, an aftermarket charger may not charge at the correct voltage or have other deficiencies.
  • Charging via a power outlet is often times much more effective than charging via USB.
  • When you are done with an app try to actually shut it down instead of pushing it to run in the background.
  • Try to avoid playing graphically intense games while charging.
  • Try to run a full charge from around 20% to full at least once a month.
  • Disable giving location based information to your apps unless necessary (i.e. Maps, Dating, etc.)
  • Turn off your GPS whenever not needed.
  • Reduce screen brightness.
  • Avoid leaving your phone plugged in once fully charged.
