The smartphones today come equipped with batteries of high capacity. But people are still complaining about the poor battery life of their smartphone. The battery might be faulty, but that is rarely the case on new smartphones. Most of the time the interface is the culprit. If you have a 4500 mAh (like Redmi Note 8 Pro) or bigger capacity battery in your device and you’re still getting poor battery life, then its time to tweak some things up. Here’s how to improve battery life of Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Improve Battery life of Redmi Note 8 Pro
There can be multiple factors that might be affecting the phone’s battery life. In the case of MIUI powered devices, the top culprit is the lack of ROM optimizations. Software updates usually fix the battery drainage so make sure the software is up to date and then try the following troubleshooting steps.
- When not actively using, turn off Wi-Fi and mobile data. The same goes for other networking tools like GPS. The apps that require GPS might be accessing it from the background. So if you are not actively using the app that requires it, it is wise to disable it. You may not realize but these tools silently drain a lot of battery even when you’re not using it actively.
- If you need to go online, use WiFi over mobile data if possible. WiFi uses less battery than mobile data does.
- Do not use Face Unlock.
- Disable the apps that you rarely use from starting automatically. To do so, go to Settings > Apps > Manage Apps > select the app that you do not want to auto-start.
- Disable auto-brightness. Make the habit of manually adjusting the brightness.
- Make sure the charger you’re using came out of the box and is not some cheap replica or a 3rd party charger.
- You can also turn the battery saver on to prolong the battery life. To turn on the battery save in Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro, go to Settings > Battery Options > tap on the toggle next to Battery Saver. You can also configure it to automatically enable when the battery level reaches a certain percentage.
- Scan for viruses. If there are malware or viruses on your phone, that could be the reason behind poor battery life. Xiaomi has a security app preinstalled. Find it on the app drawer and use it to look for malware and viruses.
