Ever since I published a blog post on my Samsung Galaxy’s battery life, I’ve been getting a lot of requests on how to extend the battery life of various Android devices, as the previous post was more of an overview as opposed to a detailed step-by-step tutorial. Before I give you the exact steps, I would like to do a little disclaimer: The battery life of your device will ultimately depend on the device that you own. I’m no expert in hardware and I definitely haven’t done a lot of research on what kind of batteries all the different Android Devices use. So I’ll be approaching this topic from a more generic angle; more specifically, I’ll be focusing on the Android OS, as opposed to individual devices. Maybe in the future I might consider doing a little User Guide to the battery life’s of all the major Android and iOS devices – but that’s in the future. For now, let’s just focus on the Android OS.
It’s been almost 3 months since I made the switch from my iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S5. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my Samsung Galaxy, but the past few weeks have got me thinking whether I’ve made a huge mistake by switching from iOS to Android. In order to fully understand my dilemma, you first need to understand the reason WHY I made the switch, which makes this whole situation even more painful for me.
