Uninstall Pre-installed Apps
The thing that worries every Android user is bloatware as every device comes with pre-installed apps. Out of these, few apps may cause over-heating and battery-draining issues, and so we advise you to remove such apps from the device. Try to uninstall all the pre-installed apps and if you don’t find an option to do it, then try disabling them.
Also, there could be few useless apps which are downloaded by the user from play store. So, recheck all the apps that you have downloaded and uninstall the unnecessary apps so that the device can prevent the battery-draining issue.
Adjust Settings Manually
The best thing in a smartphone is we can enable the auto-options for few features which do things automatically. But unknowingly, it may consume some battery life for doing this. So, we advise you to adjust a brightness of the screen by yourself as per the environment. Also, enable the rotation of the screen whenever required and disable it when not in use.
Disable Auto-updates of Apps
Whenever you enable the internet, you might have seen automatic updates of the apps. This is because you might have given the permission for auto-update. The deal is that these updates will use the internet connection and, in turn, consume more amount of battery. So, we advise you to disable the auto-updates for the apps, and you can do that by visiting each app. Whenever you feel an update is required for the particular app, then do it manually by visiting app from the play store.
GPS is another brilliant feature that helps the user to locate places for navigation. But, it is not required 24/7, so we advise you to disable the GPS/Location. If enabled, it consumes more amount of battery and very soon it gets drained. So, enable the GPS only when required and disable it in the remaining time so as to improve the battery
life on your new Galaxy J3 2016.
Remove Widgets and Live Wallpapers
Widgets can perform tasks that are useful for the users. But, some Android users fill up their device with several widgets and as a result, they have to face the battery-draining issue. Even though it helps you in some way, it utilizes most of the processor and in turn reduces the battery life. So, try to remove all the widgets from the phone and if at all they are required, use only one or two widgets.
Live Wallpapers, on the other hand, is also responsible for reducing the battery life. It utilizes internet and processor, and, in turn, consumes battery life. So, we advise you to remove live wallpapers from the device and use static or normal wallpapers and screensavers which also can enhance the beauty of your display screen.
Some users forget to turn off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Hotspot and data connections whenever not in use. As a result, they have to face the frequent battery-draining problems. So, always remember to turn off the connections like Wi-Fi, data, Bluetooth and hotspot whenever not required. Also, never use the data connection while traveling or in low-network areas until necessary as it will cost you the battery life.
Restrict background data
The users of Galaxy J3 can also improve the battery life by restricting the background data. Whenever the internet is enabled, some data runs in the background and keeps the processor busy which in turn affects the battery life. So, by restricting them, you can save the life of the battery. Open, ‘Settings>connections>data usage>more>restrict background data’ and tap on ‘Ok’.
Apart from the tips mentioned above, you can also take few precautions so as to get better battery life on your smartphone. Always stay updated by installing latest software release (through OTA) from the manufactures. These updates contain fixes for minor bugs and enhancements to improve the performance of the phone. So, always stay updated and get rid of any issues on the phone. Also, turn off the device whenever not in use or whenever there is no network coverage as this could help in increasing the battery life of the phone. Try to use original battery chargers whenever you charge the device as duplicate chargers will drain the battery faster.
Also, remember to clean the cache of the apps regularly by opening each app from the app manager and tap on ‘Clear Cache’ button. This could indirectly help you in improving the battery life. Never perform multi-tasking on the phone by opening several apps at a time, as this could hang the phone by over-loading the processor.
