Drains the battery 5 times faster: which function you should turn off on smartphones

Over time, the smartphone begins to hold a charge poorly, and this causes a lot of inconvenience to users. Additionally, there are features that make things worse and drain your device even faster. It is important to know about such functions and be able to control them in order to extend the battery life.

In the material Today, experts told what to turn off on a mobile device to keep its charge longer. This feature is available on many modern smartphones, but not on all iPhone models.

What feature should be disabled on a smartphone to save battery

Experts from the DxOMark laboratory tested battery consumption with the Always On Display feature enabled on smartphones of 2022 and stated that after its activation the gadget discharges 5 times faster. This feature has also recently appeared on iPhones, starting with the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, thanks to their LTPO OLED displays that support a reduced screen refresh rate.

The Always On Display feature allows you to display important information , such as time, date, messages, and battery level on the device's off screen. But it actively eats up the charge and there are several reasons for this. First, it requires constant power to the screen, even if it works at reduced brightness.

Secondly, despite the fact that modern technologies, such as OLED and AMOLED displays, allow displaying information with minimal energy consumption, it is still not zero. Third, with the Always On Display feature enabled, the phone frequently updates information on the screen, which also consumes battery. Finally, if the device is not properly optimized, this feature can put extra stress on the CPU, leading to even more power consumption.
