If you have an Android phone, and you’re wondering why the battery is draining faster than the norm, then perhaps there are apps that are running in the background that continuously sucks up the life from your battery, even though you’re not using them at the moment. When you go to the Battery screen of your device, you will be able to know what apps are draining the battery power ever since your last charge. These mobile applications can range from system services and hardware devices.
Accessing the Battery Screen on Your Android Device
In order to know what apps are killing the battery life of your Android phone, the information can be found on the Battery screen, which is located in the Settings app. To do that, head on to the “Settings” app from your app drawer, and then just tap on the “Battery” option which should be under Device in order to access the required information.
There are also Android smartphones that will allow users to quickly access the Battery screen by just pulling down on the actions panel found in the notifications shade. Once you see that icon, simply tapping on it will get you straight to the Battery screen, without having to go through the Settings app first.
Inside the Battery screen, it will only show the battery usage ever since the last full charge was made. If you’ve just recently charged your phone or tablet, then the information displayed here won’t be of much help. Therefore, you would want to check the screen when your device is already low on battery power to get an idea on what apps are quickly draining your battery life. It will also display the system services and hardware components that continuously drain your battery’s life throughout the day.
So let’s assume that you smartphone is turned on for quite a while, then you will have a good look at exactly what’s been draining your battery power since your last full charge. You can also tap on an app or a service to view more detailed information about it.
If you think that the information displayed on the Battery screen found in the Settings app of your Android device, there are third-party apps that can be downloaded in Google Play to give you even more detailed information as to what mobile applications and services are draining your battery’s life throughout the day.
