44 Your first week with your new phoneTips for extending battery life
How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use
HTC Desire 510. HTC Desire 510 power management helps to increase battery life.
If you like more control by tweaking settings on your own, try out some of these
battery saving 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 43.
Manage your connections
§ Turn off wireless connections such as mobile data, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth when not
in use.
§ Turn GPS on only when a precise location is needed, such as while using
navigation or location-based apps. See Turning location services on or off on
page 133.
§ 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.
§ Turn on Airplane mode when you don`t need any wireless connections and you
don`t want to receive calls or messages.
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.
For more details, see Settings and security on page 152 and Personalizing on page
49.
45 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. See Disabling an app on
page 157.
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 to edit and 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 Add icon to Home screen to
avoid automatically adding Home screen app shortcuts 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.
