Android battery issues They are the most common for users in Europe. For this reason, tips are regularly sought to improve the life of it or save battery. The variety of problems that can arise is very varied, as your cell phone discharges quickly, the battery lasts less than usual.
This is a problem that surely many of you have encountered from time to time. If the mobile downloads quickly, it is important to find the origin of this defect, in order to apply an effective solution. We tell you more about how to find the root of the failure and so do something about it.
The first aspect to consider is whether the download was performed correctly, as it may be that the phone did not really charge, which barely lasts your battery. It could be that the phone charger is broken or not working directly, which you will probably notice in this case, but it’s worth checking.
If you have another charger available, try to charge the phone battery in this way and check if the phone discharges quickly even after using the charger. If so, we can at least see that it has nothing to do with the charger, and that it’s probably a fault that resides in the phone’s battery.
It is possible that the problem is with the battery of the phone itself, that there is a problem and that it is not in good condition. Then check the condition of the battery, because maybe that’s what is causing this fast download from mobile. To check its status, as we have shown you in the past, there are several methods available on Android, although using the CPU-Z application is presented as the most comfortable and easy option.
It is an application which it will give all kinds of data on the battery status, such as its temperature or the technology used. In addition, it allows you to know more about the state it is in, in case there is something wrong. This will allow us to exclude unless it is a failure of the battery itself. CPU-Z can be downloaded for free on Android.
Another method that works on some Android phones is the use of so-called secret codes, which allow access to a menu with data on the battery status. Just enter the code * # * # 4636 # * # *
Applications drain the battery
If the battery consumption is excessively high on your phone, the mobile drains very quickly for this reason, it is possible that there is an application that consumes more than normal. There are times when some applications drain the phone battery, due to their failures, it happened after an update, but it is also a common symptom in malicious apps.
The first thing we need check in this case is the battery consumption applications on Android, to see if there are any whose consumption is excessive, out of the ordinary. If so, we can either disable said app or uninstall it, especially if we suspect it might be malicious. This is verified by following these steps:
- Open settings.
- Go into the battery.
- Tap Battery usage.
- Go to the Apps that use more battery section.
- Check which app is using the most battery.
If it is a normal application, which is not suspicious, it may be convenient to stop its activity in the background, which is another aspect which increases its battery consumption, which causes the mobile to download quickly. Although it does affect some of the phone apps.
It can’t just be a malicious app, although they are known to drain Android’s battery. It is important to identify if we have been infected, either because we installed a dangerous application or because some other kind of threat has infiltrated the phone resulting in huge battery consumption. When the mobile downloads quickly, this is an aspect to take into account.
If nothing solves this problem, we can bet on the phone reset to factory settings. Although this is only something to do when none of the solutions worked. This will erase all data on the phone, it will bring it back to its original state, which works most of the time when it breaks down. The steps for this are:
- Open settings.
- Enter the system (in some phones it is in security).
- Click on Reset.
- Go to the factory reset phone.
- Click on the Reset button.
- Present your PIN code.
- Click on OK.
