This guide is for the new buddies at Android platform
If you are owning an Android phone and you are new to the O/S environment ,you might have been going through a massive data usage-disaster (for Google services ) . Connection to the internet is enabled by default on your Android phones in most cases .As a new user of Android earlier I was thinking that ,internet connectivity cannot be stopped in the Android system. But which was untrue .
The more your phone uses the data connection ,the more your battery runs out . This mini guide would help you to save the battery life and Data cost both in your Android phone.
There are few things ,that you can do to stop unwanted data use over your valuable data plan .
- Try to use the Wi-Fi – Switch on the Wi-Fi connection ,when it is available . Using the Wi-Fi connection automatically stops the Mobile Data connection over your carrier . Wi-Fi connection uses lesser power than any other mobile data connection ,which saves a lot of battery .
- Switch off the data connection permanently – Just go to Applications folder > Settings > More(under Wireless and network)>Mobile networks>Tick off the check box at “Use Mobile Data” option.You can switch on the data connection by following the same steps ,when ever you need it .
- Set the Google Play to update the applications ,on Wi-Fi connections only – If you have plenty of Apps downloaded from Google Play ,then whenever the update is available ,your phone will download it ,but you know the applications are normally big in file size and can consume a lot of data use . You can change this nature at the Google Play application. Go to Google Play Store >>Tab the options(left bottom of the screen)>Settings>Tick “Update over Wi-Fi only” ,done !
After you stopped using the data connection ,you will see a massive boost in your battery life !
And more: There are some more typical ways to increase the battery life such as decrease the screen brightness etc, but I don’t want to have a low life with the hi end device (hope you would too),so ,the steps I have given here is for a better battery use and best data use.
