Having a poor battery life on your Android smartphone? You should refresh the battery by rebooting your device. This action clears up all open apps and fixes memory leaks. Refreshing the battery is important because it improves the device’s overall performance, but you must fully recharge it first. Read on to learn more about how to refresh your battery. Once you have done this, you should see more life from your Android phone.
To refresh the battery in your Android smartphone, you need to first disable the background apps. Background applications tend to drain your battery very quickly, and are one of the biggest sources of battery drain. To disable these background apps, go to Settings>Battery and tap “Battery Usage”. You may also need to enable developer options or disable favorite apps, as these can shorten your battery life. If you do not want to disable background apps, you need to enable Developer options. You can find this option by tapping the menu icon.
How to Auto Restart Android Phones
Your phone can get slow and develop some issues after long usage periods. Configuring your phone to auto-restart based on a schedule can optimize its performance. Luckily, some Android phone manufacturers (Samsung, for example) incorporate an auto-restart feature in their devices.
That allows you to schedule periods (time or days) when you want your phone to shut down and restart automatically.
The System: Start Outside Your Phone and Work Your Way In
When your phone isn’t charging, there are a number of possible causes for this to happen. What we need is a systematic way of checking all the variables so that we can eliminate probable causes of the issue.
There are a number of elements in the process of charging your phone. Starting from the furthest away from your smartphone, they are listed here:
Charging Port Full of Dust or Dirt
One of the most common causes of this problem is a charging port that is full of dirt, dust or even something like pocket lint. If your phone’s charging port is dirty, it can cause the charge to be less effective (or even completely ineffective).
For your phone to work properly, you will need to clean the port. To clean your phone’s charging port, you can use a toothpick, a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol, or a can of compressed air.
Attempt a Soft Reset
Before trying anything complex, attempt to force your device to reset by pressing and holding the “Power” and “Volume Down” buttons simultanously until the device reset. This type of reset should not delete data from the device.
if a reset didn’t do the trick, you mat need to re-seat the battery so the system can re-learn how much of a charge the battery has. Follow these steps, and they will fix this problem most of the time.
