While smartphone users tend to enjoy their smartphone better when the screen brightness is set very high, there is a downside which most people are unaware of – your battery drains faster. To fix this problem, you need to set your smartphone screen brightness low or allow the phone to automatically determine how bright the screen should be by keeping it in automatic mode.

Another way to deal with lessening the battery consumption by your screen is to curtail the time it takes for the screen display to turn off after using your smartphone or when it is idle.

2.Your smartphone has Apps running in the background

This could be the reason why your smartphone battery don’t last as expected.
