Battery under control

There are many applications that have been created over the years to try to optimize the performance of the Smartphone. But at the end of the day, one of the best tools on you can count on to achieve this it's on your phone.

  • Access the "Battery" or "Device Care" section, depending on which interface corresponds to your computer model, via the "Settings" or "Configuration" option.
  • Proceed to view the consumption statistics of your mobile device.
  • In these statistics you will be able to see the applications that, being active or running in the background, consume a certain percentage of the load.

Activation of the saving mode

To activate the option that will allow you to extend the life of your battery, you have to follow a series of simple instructions.

  • Click on the “Battery” section.
  • Enter the section “Battery use”.
  • Depending on the model of your Android device, you should find a section to configure the battery mode, taking it to different energy saving levels.

Battery Savings Levels

Some brands of Android phones have implemented scaled energy savings by establishing two types of saving modes to know: average and maximum.

This assigns a customizable font to this option, allowing you to choose the impact that enabling this feature can have on certain applications. Maximum energy saving suspends the vast majority of applications installed on the mobile phone, leaving only the essential ones running.

Consequences of energy saving

Among the changes you will be able to appreciate when you activate any of the power saving modes on your Android device are:

  • Significant reduction of the screen brightness.
  • The synchronization functions of some applications will be suspended while in power saving mode.
  • Applications that may have a greater impact on the phone's battery, even in the background, will be affected.
  • The different connection channels (WiFi, mobile data, Bluetooth and GPS) will also be disabled while the power saving option is running.

Forced applications and closures

If you want force quit applications possibly active and with a high battery consumption, you must enter the configuration panel of your mobile phone and follow the following instructions:



  1. Enter the "Applications" section.
  2. A list with the applications running on the device will be displayed.
  3. Select one of the apps you are aware of that has a high battery drain.
  4. You will enter the data of the application and in it you will be able to see the force close button.

For applications that are kept in the background, this alternative may not be as efficient as activating the power saving mode.
