This week, we’re featuring an Android smartphone tip:
With all the fun, useful features and functions available on your Android smartphone, did you know they can zap battery life even if you’re not using them?
When turned on, but not in use, some functions—like Wi-Fi and GPS—will continue to look for wireless networks or satellites, which can quickly drain your battery.
Here are four commonly used features to turn off whenever they’re not needed; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and the Vibrate function. Turning these off is simple:
1. From the Home screen, touch the Apps icon.
2. Open the Settings app.
3. Make sure that these master controls are turned off:
4. Disable the Vibrate function on the ringer.
Enjoy more time talking and texting and less time recharging your phone.
