As much as you use your smartphone, the battery will run down and you will need to recharge it so it can be reused.
The not so good thing is that, most smartphones just run down like a waterfall every time and would always need a recharge.
Charging your smartphone is important but saving your battery will save you from a lot of inconvenience and recharging. Battery saving is very important and that’s why it’s a trending topic.
Smartphones are affected the most when it comes to battery issues because of their power hungry features and addictive natures.
From playing HD games for hours, streaming and watching movies online, running too many apps, playing music and turning every single connectivity option on your phone,everything sips the battery with an invisible straw.
This is why most manufacturers now include a powerful stock battery saving app or tool to help curtail this issue. Some do use third party apps to help get the job done.

Battery Saving Apps are used to reduce battery usage on your Smartphones. The basic idea of this apps is to kill or “Force stop” the apps which are running at the background which consumes a lot of memory. The more the memory usage, the more battery will be consumed.
I would suggest, if possible, not to use any “battery saver” apps. The more apps you use, the more battery you’ll drain.
Most of what battery saving apps do can be done comfortably by hand even without the apps.
If you really want to know best way to save battery, follow this post.
Reduce the screen Brightness level or automate it
The part of our smartphones that uses more of the battery power is the screen. Once we keep using the screen light for a long period of time with a high brightness level, it sucks the battery.
The trick is, change the brightness anytime you want or just set it to automatic. The battery will only be consumed when you use your device. So don’t worry about the brightness level.
Check the Running apps
Even with an 8GB RAM or the most powerful CPU, running too many apps and processes in the background will certainly drain your battery faster.
The funny thing is that, it’s just a few manufacturers that use large capacity batteries on their devices.
Close apps from the recent apps tab. If you feel as if any app is working in the background, close it from the app management by force closing the app.
Notifications are important for important apps. When each app sends a notification, it becomes a problem to your battery and might slow down some devices.
Disable show notifications option from the app management of the apps you don’t want to be notified about.
This will help in stopping unwanted battery usage in notifying you about the app’s activities.
If possible, turn off notifications from annoying whatsapp groups so your attention isn’t distracted when the phone beeps.
The more apps you install, the more memory space, RAM and battery it consumes.
Uninstall those unwanted apps or disturbing ones that pop up or show their notifications without you accessing them.
Reduce Startup apps (root)
Android root users can disable startup apps from app called Android tuner.
This app has many power user functionalities so use with caution.
Use Greenify app (root)
Hibernation is a good way to keep the apps in check. This apps allow you to pause apps you want to use later from the same progress as current.
Just select the app from the running apps list inside greenify and make it hibernate as long as u want.
The app will resume from where it was when you launch it.
Use Lite apps as an alternative
Using lite alternatives of heavy apps is also a better option. Facebook lite, Messenger lite and others.
It doesn’t consume as much memory space or RAM during usage..
Charging your device properly
Always charge your device when battery is low and not when it is about to turn off. You also need to use original chargers and cables and charge it to 100% if possible.
This will help out in refreshing the battery itself.
Close running services and connectivity
Bluetooth, WiFi, mobile data, location/GPS, tethering and any other background services should be stopped when not in use.
If your mobile data is exhausted, just turn off the switch. If you got no business with location services, please keep it off.
Stay away from your phone sometimes
Having your mobile phone in your hands all the time will increase unnecessary fondling. If you can, slide it into your pocket, on the desk, table or wherever it would be comfortable and do other tasks.
This will surely save a considerable amount of battery.
Use the built-in battery saver
Instead of using third party battery savers, always use the battery saver in your device.
Tweak it as much as you can and observe other tips above.
