How to Make Your Cell Phone Battery Last Longer
Say goodbye to the dreaded dead phone.
These days, we practically live and die by our cell phones. (And that’s hardly a surprise, considering they’re pretty much designed to ensure we never put them down.)
But in between all of our feverish Google-ing, finger swiping, and photo filtering, we tend to forget about just how hard our phones are working for us all day long. That is, until that all-too-familiar “low battery” notification pops up, and we suddenly realize we’ve totally drained our battery. If you’re out in the world when this happens and have no charger in sight, it’s enough to strike fear in your heart.
According to Ryan Lindstrom, a Product Development Engineer with Sprint, there isn’t one major culprit that’s sucking up our battery juice all day long—and that’s because every device is different, and battery life varies depending on the make, model, and year it was made. But there are still plenty of other things you can do to conserve your battery throughout the day.
