If you’re living on 12%, let us be the first to say: no one should live like that. If your phone battery keeps dying, it could be at the end of its life. Or not. Let us go through some phone battery troubleshooting tips, so you’ll know whether it’s time to swap it out, just change your charger or upgrade your phone because you wanted to anyway.
Most people want to know how long a battery lasts in a single session of being powered on. With most smartphone batteries, you’ll get around 10 hours with moderate use. More on that in a second.
The other important thing you should know, if you think your phone battery is dying, is how many years it should last. On average, a lithium-ion phone battery lasts 2-3 years, or for about 500 charge cycles. So, if your battery isn’t lasting and it’s more than three years old, you may be ready for a replacement.
Because it’s top-of-the-market and super popular, you probably want to know how long your iPhone battery will last.
How to Make Your Phone Battery Last Longer
You must already know that user behavior impacts battery life. Always roaming? Problem. Never on Wifi? Problem. You can take some strategic steps to make your battery last longer (without putting it in the dreaded Power Saver mode).
1. Change the screen refresh rate and brightness. Lower is better for your battery life.
2. Pay attention to what’s running in the background. If you’ve got your workout app tracking steps, a bunch of Safari or Chrome screens, etc., it’s going to drain your battery.
3. Turn off location services. We know you want your coupon once you walk into the radius of Starbucks, but if your battery is low, this will save some juice.
4. Change push notifications. These run in the background and take up battery life.
If worst comes to worst, put it in airplane mode. We know, but sometimes there’s no other choice.
So, if the average smartphone battery lasts about three years, some of us switch phones that often. In that case, smartphone battery replacement may not be needed. However, if your battery gets damaged, blown out by bad power sources or has another issue, you still may look at a battery replacement.
First, check if your cell phone battery is still in warranty. If it isn’t, you can head to any IT repair service provider to get an estimate. Depending on what kind of phone you have, you may want to go to an authorized service center. Of course, quality service will cost a little more.
