Battery Drain Fast & Heat

 

         Symptom

 

Battery Drain Fast & Heat

 

         Cause

 

A lot of opened background apps, or high screen brightness

 

 

         How to fix

 

·         CLOSE BACKGROUND APPLICATIONS

Close Apps that you don't need. Apps that stay active in the background use up a bit of CPU, which uses up battery.

 

 

·         TURN DOWN SCREEN BRIGHTNESS

The screen is one of the most power-consuming parts of the mobile phone. Keep it as low as you can.

 

 

·         DECREASE SCREEN STANDBY TIME OUT

The time till your screen dims out and gets turned off is configurable in most phones. Set it as low as you can go.

 

 

·         TURN OFF 3G/GPRS/EDGE

Phones keep searching for 3G coverage by default. So make sure you disconnect when you're done browsing the web.

 

·         USE BLUETOOTH AND WI-FI ONLY WHILE TRANSFERRING

If you only use Bluetooth occasionally, there's probably no point keeping it on all the time. Same goes for Wi-Fi.
