Earlier, phones were used only for making calls and sending text messages. But now, we have the smartphones that can do everything a computer can do.

Surfing the net, making new friends, playing online games, taking selfies, and recording videos have become part of our daily lives. However, for performing these tasks, we need sufficient battery power. Running out of battery in the middle of a video call or an online game could be really disgusting. Here is a list of things that actually drains your batter quickly:


You can easily spend your leisure time playing games on your smartphone. You likely get bored while traveling or waiting for something. Playing games is really common to easily spend your time. Also, games like PUBG and Clash of Clans have become really common. But, playing online games also drains your battery quickly. High graphics of games and sound are the reasons behind it.

Constantly draining and charging does reduce battery life little by little, but games are no different from other heavy use. Unless there's something seriously wrong with your phone's battery, even heavy use shouldn't damage it even though the increased heat may feel a bit worrying in your hands.

Social Media Apps

Who on this earth do not use social media app/s on his/her smartphone? Social media allows you to stay up to date with the things going around you, chat with friends, and post something on your wall. Social media apps like Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, and Instagram are really common. But, these apps use camera, location services, voice recorder, etc. that can drain your battery quickly. Also, when this apps are running in the background, it drains your battery down. Make sure to close these apps from the background to avoid unnecessary battery usage.

Unsurprisingly, the largest social network is also one of the biggest drainers of your phone's battery. Facebook consistently ranks high in reports of iPhone and Android battery usage. One of the main reasons for this battery suck – besides the fact that Facebook is addictive

Display Brightness

Nowadays, most smartphones offer extra-large screens. These extra-large screens can be great for gaming and watching videos. But, at the same time, large size of your screen will also consume more battery. So, keeping your brightness high will drain your battery quickly. Also, using it as a torchlight can drain the battery more quickly.

The more you use the phone, the more time you can add to your battery by turning down the brightness. Getting up to two extra hours isn't crazy. Actually, these times would probably still be lower than this. I suspect that if you were heavily using your phone, it would use a lot more than just 0.5 watts more power.


Bluetooth is oftenly used for connecting your phone with media-devices. Also, you can send and receive files using it. But, when your Bluetooth is turned on unnecessarily, it drains your battery life hell quickly. So, don’t forget to turn it off when it isn’t needed.

And even then, thanks to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), the consumption is negligible (between 1 – 3 % per day). BONUS TIP: This one is unrelated to Bluetooth, but if you're looking for an easy way to save as much phone battery as possible, dim your screen.

GPS Services

Some people use location services very frequently for reaching their destination. GPS allows you to search places via Google Maps and show the directions to reach it. But, using location services for too long could drain your battery life even before you reach your destination. It may seem funny but it is true. You can download the map to use if offline and save your battery life.
