What about the battery life? This is the most common question when it comes to a new Smartphone. Manufacturer response it can  only be an estimated one because they can not predict how you are going to use your phone. Maybe you feel dissatisfaction and frustration. The best thing is to take an informed decision and that is the purpose of this article.

Do not be afraid to recharge!
The type of battery used in current Smartphones is Li-Ion. Technology manufacturing cells used in this type of battery has evolved over time. Unlike Ni-Mh, which allowed a total of 300 to 500 full recharge cycles, Li-Ion allows 800-1000 cycles. Your battery capacity will decrease by 80% after 2 years and you will have to buy a new one, if you want of course.

High capacity. It accepts, usually at least 1500 milliamps for a new generation of dual-core smartphone. Do not be afraid for smaller capacities. The idea is, if you reload often, at least to load quickly. For this reason some manufacturers opting for smaller capacity batteries. If battery capacity is sufficient for the day, then you have no reason to look for a higher battery capacity.

Single Core vs. Dual Core. According to producers, dual core smartphones consumes less battery. In fact, the truth is somewhere in between. Yes, you may want a more powerful processor, but at the same time, it is better to have a compatible software.

Do not rely solely on the applications listed in these operating systems to perform our tasks, mostly, download applications from the store. And here, at least for Android, although we are years away for the debut of dual-core processors, few applications are optimized to use the second core. If things are better with iOS, given the small number of devices and hardware configurations, my advice is to install the latest software platform.

Courage! Do not allow applications like “Battery Saver” to tell you what to do, when to do. I already covered in the article dedicated programs futility of “Task Manager”. The same premise applies to “Battery Saver” applications. Do not turn the wireless on the contrary, try to keep it active as long as possible. Not darken, choose an average value that suits you best and leave it so. Do not charge smartphone with all kinds of applications that promise to do much when in reality you do not need them. The smartphone is designed to be smart. Do not reduce the status of feature phones for greater life of the battery, you are not using it anyway. Avoid cycles of stop/restart. Keep things moving.

There are cases where even we need a higher capacity battery. Some manufacturers offer genuine alternatives. They are preferred. Can’t find the original larger capacity? Buy one of the same capacity and make it work. There is also a good pool of third-party vendors, but rarely in our market. Use known online services like Amazon, with confidence. Do not limit yourself to the domestic market. Most important for Li-Ion battery is the production date.
