Tip of the Week: Use Battery Saver for Android
Why should I do this?
We’ve all been there – worrying that your battery will die at a crucial moment while we’re on the move. So if you’re on the go and want to preserve your Android’s battery, simply enable Battery Saver mode, a handy feature that comes on all Android smartphones.
When Battery Saver is enabled, Android will minimise your phone’s performance to its essential functions. Battery Saver will reduce the following activity:
GPS and location services
Background app syncing and refreshing
How do I do this?
To enable Battery Saver, go to Settings > Battery. Then tap the menu and go to ‘Battery Saver’. From here, you can turn the mode manually on or off via slider. Once Battery Saver is on, the top and bottom bars on your screen will turn red. When you charge your phone, Battery Saver will disable itself for the duration your phone is charging.
You also have the option on this screen to turn on Battery Saver automatically. Tap ‘Turn on automatically’ and you’ll see three choices: Never, at 5% battery or at 15% battery.
