How To Save Battery Power On Your Android Phone

Android phones have a tendency to drain your phone's battery power quickly. So here's a simple list of things you need to do to save your battery on your Android phone.



  • Check who consumes your phone's battery the most : Go to Settings -> About phone-> Battery use. This gives you all the details of your phone's battery power consumption, be it WiFi, GPS, display or any other application.
  • Use Battery Saver Apps : Use Juice Defender for saving your battery. Here's the description given on the site : JuiceDefender is a powerful yet easy to use power manager app specifically designed to extend the battery life of your Android device. Packed with smart functions, it automatically and transparently manages the most battery draining components, like 3G/4G connectivity and WiFi.
  • Reduce Display Brightness : Phone's display is one of the biggest power hog. Reduce it to a level which can be tolerated by your eyes and thus save your battery power to a substantial level. Go to Settings -> Display -> Brightness and reduce the level of brightness. 
  • Use only 2G Networks : Unless you need access to high speed data provided by 3G, prefer using 2G networks as they consume less battery. Go to Settings -> Wireless controls -> Mobile networks -> Use only 2G networks.
  • Use Black Background : White or any other color background consume more battery. Use a black background to reduce the battery consumption. 
  • Reduce Screen Timeout Duration : Go to Settings -> Sound & display -> Screen timeout and reduce to 30 seconds.
  • Other Turnoffs : Turnoff Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS when not needed. 
  • Turn off Vibration : Turn off vibration to save power.

34 things I learned from The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch

Assume that you're on the verge of dying. You've probably a few months to live. You're suffering from some notorious form of cancer wherein you've very less hope of surviving.
And then you think that you've very less time for all the things you wanted to do, for all the things you wanted to say to your loved ones, to your children and to the world.
How would you want your children to remember you? Of what you thought about them? Your feelings for them?
A few days ago I read the book - The last lecture by Randy Pausch. Randy was a professor at Carnegie Melon University and the book and the lecture is about achieving your childhood dreams. But more than that, I found the book as a good resource on parenting.
Here are a few points that I found worth sharing:
1. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured.
2. Engineering isn’t about perfect solutions; it’s about doing the …

Disconnect to Connect

For the past couple of days I have been reading on Productivity Tips. Have been scouring various blogs on the same.

One thing that has caught my fancy is Digital Detox. To stay away from all kinds of Electronic Connecting Devices, especially Smart Phone.

I am constantly connected to the Internet via my iPhone. Even while working on stuff that doesn't require me to be connected to the Internet, I keep my WiFi on. And this in turn compels me to check my email or browse unnecessary stuff on the Internet.

This disrupts my thinking process or my work.

Although I love being connected to my friends and family members over Whatsapp and other social networks, I don't want it to be a habit where I check my phone even if there are no new notifications.

Tip: Stay Focused with this little Google Chrome Extension

So here's my plan to Disconnect and be more Productive:
Use Whatsapp sparingly. No forwarding of that joke that you found funny or no unnecessary chit-chat.Put your email in Fet…

Book: Outliers

Recently I came across this Amazon company named Audible. Audible sells digital audio books, TV Programs and magazines. To give it a try, as it was free for the first month or so, I downloaded it on my iPhone and was going through the various titles. And then, somehow, I decided to download the audio book: Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.
Listening to a book is altogether a different experience. And to listen a book on Success and its various factors, requires thorough attention. It's not as easy as listening to songs on your phone.

Anyway, I started listening to the Audio of Outliers. The book was narrated by Gladwell himself. And I must say that I loved his book.
Gladwell is an amazing storyteller and he captivates you with his resourceful topics ranging from hockey players to plane crashes. If you thought that success is all about hardwork; then you're wrong. Success has various factors along with hardwork. It has to do a lot with your upbringing, the place where you're f…
