The unknown villain

You may think that the villain of the battery is the screen brightness or even the WiFi connection, but these are the known resources they consume more battery. What many people do not know is that when no signal operator (2G, 3G or 4G) battery is consumed.

A good alternative when no signal is set to “airplane mode” that turns off 3G, Bluetooth and WiFi, saving the battery.

Many people use the smartphone as an alarm clock next to the bed. Check if the signal is low or absent where the device is located. Always leave your cell phone in places with high signal or you do not need to receive calls using the “Airplane Mode” until it is awakened.
