§ Want to check the battery percentage right on the status bar? In Power settings,
select Show battery level.
Checking battery history
Check how long you`ve been using HTC Butterfly s since the last charge. You can also
see a chart that shows how long the screen has been on, and how long you`ve been
using connections like the mobile network or Wi‑Fi.
1. Go to Settings, and then tap Power.
2. Tap History.
3. If you`ve used HTC Butterfly s for a long time since the last charge, swipe left or

screen is off and the data connection is idle (no download activity, streaming, or
data usage). It reconnects and then disconnects periodically when the data
connection is idle to save battery power.
Keep in mind though that the Sleep mode option for the data connection in
Settings > Power, when enabled, overrides power saver mode.
38 Your first week with your new phoneGetting the battery to last longer
How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use
HTC Butterfly s. HTC Butterfly s power management helps to increase battery life.
In times when you need to extend the battery life more, try out some of these tips:
Check your battery usage
Monitoring your battery usage helps you identify what`s using the most power so you
can choose what to do about it. For details, see Checking battery usage on page 38.
Manage your connections
§ Turn off wireless connections you`re not using.
To turn on or off connections such as mobile data, Wi ‑Fi, or Bluetooth, go to
Settings and tap their On/Off switches.
§ Turn GPS on only when a precise location is needed.
To prevent some apps from using GPS in the background, keep the GPS
satellites setting off. Turn it on only when you need your precise location while
using navigation or location-based apps. Go to Settings and tap Location to
turn this setting on or off.
§ If the Sleep mode option in Settings > Power is enabled, at low peak times, your
phone will turn off the data connection after the screen has been off for 15
minutes and there`s no network activity (no downloads, streaming, or data
usage). The data connection resumes when you switch the screen back on.
Manage your display
Lowering the brightness, letting the display sleep when not in use, and keeping it
simple helps save battery power.
§ Use automatic brightness (the default), or manually lower the brightness.
§ Set the screen timeout to a shorter time.
§ Don`t use a live wallpaper for your Home screen. Animation effects are nice to
show off to other people but they drain your battery.
Changing your wallpaper to a plain, black background can also help a little. The
less color is displayed, the less battery is used.
§ Set the web browser to auto dim the screen while webpages load. Open the
Internet app, and then tap > Settings > Accessibility > Dim screen during
page loading.
For more details, see Settings and security on page 167 and Personalizing on page
56.
39 Your first week with your new phoneManage your apps
§ Install the latest software and application updates. Updates sometimes include
battery performance improvements.
§ Uninstall or disable apps that you never use.
Many apps run processes or sync data in the background even when you`re not
using them. If there are apps that you don`t need anymore, uninstall them.
If an app came preloaded and can`t be uninstalled, disabling the app can still
prevent it from continuously running or syncing data. In Settings > Apps, swipe
to the All tab, tap the app, and then tap Disable.
Limit background data and sync
Background data and sync can use a lot of battery power if you have many apps
syncing data in the background. It’s recommended not to let apps sync data too
often. Determine which apps can be set with longer sync times, or sync manually.
§ In Settings, tap Accounts & sync and check what types of data are being synced
in your online accounts. When the battery is starting to run low, temporarily
disable syncing some data.
§ If you have many email accounts, consider prolonging the sync time of some
accounts.
In the Mail app, select an account, tap > Settings > Sync, Send & Receive, and
then adjust the settings under Sync schedule.
§ When you’re not traveling from one place to another, sync weather updates of
only your current location, rather than in all of your named cities. Open the
Weather app, and then tap > Edit to remove unneeded cities.
§ Choose widgets wisely.
Some widgets constantly sync data. Consider removing the ones that are not
important from your Home screen.
§ In Play Store, tap > Settings, and then clear Auto-add widgets to avoid
automatically adding Home screen widgets whenever you`ve installed new apps.
Also tap Auto-update apps > Do not auto-update apps if you`re fine with
updating apps from Play Store manually.
Other tips
To squeeze in a little bit more battery power, try these tips:
§ Tone down the ringtone and media volume.
§ Minimize the use of vibration or sound feedback. In Settings, tap Sound and
choose which ones you don`t need and can disable.
§ Check your apps’ settings as you may find more options to optimize the battery.
