All the actions described below require certain skills, please do not proceed to it in any case without a full backup in order to avoid the loss of the performance of the phone and its data. 1. Root access.
If you do not have a root, there is nothing to even begin to struggle with the charge consumption. Without root, the phone is not controlled by you, but by Google, Samsung, LG, Sony and others.2. Google
Google is the main reason for the deterioration of power consumption, so aggressive Google apps should be changed to analogues whenever possible, and it is better to completely disable the google.service framework receivers and Google Play services.Here
I describe my actions in this direction. In short - installXposed Framework
and put to sleep the Google Service Framework and Google Play services, and inAutorun manager
orMy Android Tools
disable all receivers of these applications. You can disable it in the same My Android Toolsa number of services
the above applications.
Google Now also recommend not to include, just use the usual search. From Google, you must leave the PLay Store - it works great when disabling the above services or receivers.3. Autorun
A bunch of applications trying to start immediately with the inclusion of the phone, although you do not need it. There are simple programs likeStartup manager
in which you can exclude and add applications that run at boot. There are more advanced applications likeAutorun manager
, there you can disable various functions related to the launch and operation of applications, or even remove or freeze various applications, including system ones. You can also put to sleep applications with programs such asGreenify
. There are programs likeAppOps
there you can disable autoloading, you can do it inSD Maid
Media scanner can cause very serious damage to the battery.
First, it is worth putting the applicationRescan Media Root
and launch it after loading the phone (for convenience, you can use the above Startup Manager by placing the program in autoload and forgetting about manual launch). The application, however, has not been updated for a long time and its effectiveness is debatable, but it becomes a little calmer at heart.
Secondly, empty .nomedia files placed in the folder with media files do not allow the media scanner to rummage in this place. But it works only if you use players that have a built-in scanner (Poweramp
, Dice player
). If things likeGoogle music
, they will not be able to see the media in the folder in which there is a .nomedia file, and, accordingly, play something.
When using Poweramp, it is also necessary to observe some conventions to reduce power consumption - disable automatic scanning, put music into one folder that you specify in the settings and scan manually (of course, with the above-mentioned .nomedia file). In addition, in the settings of the headset, turn off playback and pause when connecting / disconnecting headphones. By the way, such parameters in some firmware are also available in the system settings.
Yes, some help the procedure "settings" - "applications" - "media storage" - "clear the cache / delete data."5. Synchronization and updates
There is no need to keep these parameters on all the time, where possible, you need to set longer intervals, or update and synchronize manually. Some applications send data to Google Analytics, it also needs to be disabled. Programs that do not have the settings to disable or adjust the time of updates can completely block access to the Internet. There are a bunch of firewalls, for example, I use the moduleXprivacy
for xposed. Tests have shown that only he can COMPLETELY block the program access to the network.6. Location
Turn off both GPS and network detection, turn it on if necessary. Disable sending of location data in Google settings (you can see screenshots of settingshere
). You can generally remove / freeze networklocation.apk.7. Wifi, Bluetooth
Include as needed. For WiFi, for example, I useBetter Wifi on / off
, including it together with the unlock screen and disconnecting after 30 seconds of inactivity. In addition, if you notice an increased charge consumption when using WiFi, you should check the settings of the router, at least to see if something changes with other settings / another router. Another source of increased consumption when WiFi is turned on can be defective.memory card
.8. Mobile network.
It is often better to use the option вЂњonly 2G networkвЂќ or вЂњonly 3GвЂќ, so the device will stop the constant search and jump in conditions of an unstable signal. In addition, it is necessary to limit the background activity of applications using the network.9. Sounds
Disable key sounds, vibration when touching the screen, loading, and so on.10. Screen brightness
Brightness is better to set to a minimum, but for me, let's say it does not fit, I always use the phone both on the street and in the room, so I have to use auto brightness.
Wallpapers and themes are better to use dark, white text on black, sort of like, less disastrous to charge than black on white.11. Programs
As I have already described above, you should not use GoogleвЂ™s programs, but there are others that consume a charge - Facebook, various kinds of widgets with HD graphics, watches with seconds, live wallpapers, apps that use push notifications, sensors, and more. For example, in Chrome, in the settings for developers, it is not necessary to tick "tilt through" - the sensor is activated and goodbye, charge.
And what would you not say that Android itself completes unused programs, it is better to exit them through the "exit" button (where available), or "back", or close them yourself by clearing the window of recent applications.12. Battery
Often, the reason for the Jora is a trite battery failure. You can check it byway
recommended by tester99 in topic"Power consumption (autonomy) Samsung Galaxy S IV"
In addition to software solutions to problems with savings, it is important to consider the properties of the battery itself. Detailed instructions for extending battery life givescode.master
under the spoiler below (however,many people believe
That such recommendations were relevant for Ni-Cd batteries and for Li-Ion, full discharge (up to 0) is the main evil and a factor that greatly affects the reduction in battery life. But, for example, on the contrary, this instruction has always helped to increase the battery life on different phones with Li-Д°on batteries, so decide for yourself:
13. I recommend
"I use the phone until it is completely discharged, so that it turns itself off when it reaches a critical level. But then I donвЂ™t turn on the charging, and even more I discharge the battery. How do I do it?
In two ways - without removing the battery from the phone (not the most efficient way, but more convenient and safer) and the second way - pull the battery out of the phone, put it in the charger "frog" so that the contacts of the frog are connected to the battery's plus-minus, and To the contacts of the frog, connect a small bulb, at 12 volts. Or 6 volts, but 12 is better, because the slower the battery discharge process is, the better, for example, a 3.5 volt light bulb will quickly land the battery.
IMPORTANT POINT! Different manufacturers have different approaches to the management of the battery charge-discharge. Most modern designs battery manufacturers so that it simply ceases to apply a voltage to the contacts as if nothing inside the battery during the critical discharge. With this approach, if you connect a light bulb to a battery, you discharge it just to the point that you have to - to complete a valid discharge. After that, you disconnect the wires and the light bulb and put "Zhabko" with the battery in the socket - all charge went.
Just remember, some frogs are able to determine the polarity automatically, others are not able, so before you start discharging the battery with a light bulb - set the polarity. A green or red light should be lit on the frog when properly connected - see the instructions for the frog. If the frog does not know how to automatically determine the polarity and you mix it up, then when connected to the outlet, either a further discharge of the battery or something bad that will kill the battery will go, be careful.
In general, if the polarity is set correctly and the light went out - just put on the charge and let the battery is fully charged, all night and can Zhabko it takes. Then I recommend removing the battery from the Zhabko not immediately put it in the phone, and give her to lie down, at least for an hour - unless of course there is such a possibility. If not - you can immediately put into the phone. If the battery will lie down - electrochemical processes it ustakanilos, and it will keep longer. And if you took off the charging, put it directly into the phone, then the effect will be such that the battery is a little warm on the charge, and immediately start using it for her worse, she needs a little rest.
The second case is that the battery controller cannot automatically disconnect the battery from the source of load during a critical charge, in this case it is possible to kill the battery with a light bulb, if you allow it to discharge below the threshold level.
How to determine that the battery itself does not turn off? By connecting a light bulb, you will see that it eventually dims and dims lights up, but does not go out dramatically - this is the case when the controller can not automatically turn off, which is typical for many Chinese batteries. What can I recommend in this case? If there is a tester, you can discharge the battery to the level of 2.7 Volts - it will be safe, I will discharge even to the level of 2.4 volts, but you do not take risks.
Or a second method, which I wrote at the beginning (without pulling the battery out of the phone). This method is simple. When there is very little longer battery life, but the phone still works (eg in less than 5%), switch off your phone, then go to rekaveri mode. Or even go to somewhere, even in FlashMode, though in BootLoader or FastBoot mode, the phone has testified that he included - for example, will be ready to sign a flashing or will be launched rekaveri mode. And yet - then leave the phone turned on, it will lie and to work as long as the battery will reach to a critical value, and extinguished itself, or goes off the phone. After this, pull out the battery and charge Zhabko (do not forget about the polarity), or connect the phone to a charger, but do not include it, even charged off - so it will be charged longer, but safer. And in this way make a few charge-discharge cycles - for example, do this 5-7 times. After these procedures, you will feel how much longer the battery will hold a charge that will surpass any battle with veyklokami.
IMPORTANT! When charging the battery, even with a toad, even telephone charging, you do not need to try to disconnect from charging and connect it immediately again, such as for a stronger charge, because lithium batteries do not like the recharge mode, they will really hold the charge after this, but far less.
Besides all this, I took another conclusion that the Android system is somehow measures the discharge levels and battery charge, and if, for example, frequently recharge a phone that is not fully discharged, and for example, only up to 20%, then eventually the phone start confused and inconsistent readings show charge and discharge, and the battery controller itself may encounter a "memory effect". In electrical memory effect is called the effect, when you discharge the battery to approximately 20%, and then connect to the charging, charging to 100%, and then like she should be discharged to 0, but the battery as it thinks it has initially been charged with 0 instead to 20%, therefore, reached the level of 20%, it will be considered that have fully discharged (so the way can be considered, and the Android system), which is why it is so important to do this entire calibration process, about which I wrote above.
This helps me to extend the battery charge, and very well. In fact, the memory effect was valid for nickel-cadmium batteries, or nickel-magnesium batteries, while the lithium-ion batteries do not have this effect, but in reality this is not the case. The memory effect is also present on these batteries, although not as pronounced. "
-In the intricacies of dealing with the battery consumption will help another programGSAM Battery Monitor
In a slightly different way, she analyzes the reasons for Jora, but there are a bunch of options that are not available in the BBS.
Somewhere it may repeat the BBS data (the number of awakenings, for example, is equivalent to the signals in the BBS, the core wavelets can also be output separately), but somewhere it will give a more understandable explanation. For example, you can display all wakefulness on a separate screen, rather than scouring the BBS dump and highlighting the reasons.
Each application can be viewed separately and see which processes it has activated.
In general, if there is a desire to understand, then this program in no way interferes with BBS, but only complements and helps. Especially since I officially translate it and I donвЂ™t need knowledge of English to use this application.
- Absolutely necessary program -My Android Tools
- it is possible to turn off both receivers, freeze services and applications.
- Of the great variety of programs that clean the system of garbage, I recommendSD Maid
