One of the biggest complaints I hear about Android devices is their poor battery life. There are many reasons why your Android phone could be experiencing poor battery life. One of the best ways to find out what is eating up the battery on your device is by taking a closer look at the battery usage stats. Many new users do not realize that this is even an option. So below are the some simple steps you can follow to monitor your battery usage and get a better understanding of what may be draining it. Once you know what is draining the battery, you can look for ways to help improve it.
1. From the Home screen, click the MENU button
2. Click on SETTINGS
3. Scroll down to “About Phone”
4. Click on “Battery” or “Battery Use”
On the “Battery Use” screen you will notice that it will show a percentage of its use next to each process. The processes will be listed in order of highest to lowest battery usage. At the top of mine is usually the Display, but that may be different depending on how you have your screen brightness set. On the top of the screen you’ll also notice that it displays when the last time was that you charged your device and how long it has been running on batteries. With this information you should be able to see what applications and processes are eating through your battery life, and then adjust your usage accordingly to allow for better battery life.
