I’ve noticed lately that the battery on my Android Nexus 7 (2013 model) has drained more quickly than normal. Nothing is more annoying the having your device die during the middle of an intense Angry Birds session. I’ve searched the internet for good battery tips and I want to share them with you.
Turn off Background sync in Facebook
Facebook. syncs data in the background, even if you’re not using your phone. Turn this off in the Facebook app by tapping on App Settings > Refresh Interval, then select never.
You should also turn background sync off in the Twitter app by Tapping Options > Settings > Your Account Name > Then turn off “Sync Data”
Turn off NFC
NFC is very useful, but if you’re not using it NFC will still use battery. You can turn off NFC by going into the settings app and select more.
Turn off Bluetooth when you’re not using it
Bluetooth can drain a plethora of battery if you have it turned on all the time. To turn off Bluetooth go into the settings and disable it.
Monitor and Turn Off Location Services
GPS and location services can also be a big battery drain. You can easily turn GPS and location services by going to Settings > Location. If your device is running Android KitKat 4.4 you can see what apps are using your GPS and how much battery they’re using.
If all else fails and your battery is still draining faster than normal go into Settings > Battery and check what’s eating up all your battery.
