Updating android phone
However, widgets are battery drainers due to their constant syncing with the mothership or power-sucking animations.If you don't need a permanent window into Twitter, or regular updates on the weather, remove the superfluous widget by pressing and holding it, then dragging it to the trash can icon.Getting real-time updates of what's going on in your apps is handy for things like email or social networks, but many apps automatically demand permission to send notifications as well for reasons that are much less useful.Turn off notifications by heading to Settings Notifications to manually adjust notification levels for each app – you can choose to never show notifications or its battery-friendly compromise: show silently without waking the screen, vibrating, or pinging.
Alternately, if you're using apps that require your location, you can head to Settings Mode and select “Battery saving” (where Wi-Fi and mobile networks are used to determine your location) over “High accuracy” (where GPS is also used).
If your low-signal area is, say, an office or someone's home, you can turn on Wi-Fi (with Airplane Mode enabled) instead to stay connected.
Then restart your cellular connection when you're in an area with better coverage.
For apps that seem to be demanding more than necessary, head into the apps and manually adjust the permissions individually.
For Android 5.0 and newer, this feature helps maximize battery life as well as stretch out those last several minutes.
For example, animations are pared back, most background syncing is halted and location services turned off (so no navigation on Google Maps).
