Tips on how to optimize your tecno camon C9 battery

Tips on how to optimize your camon C9 battery
For those of us using the camon C9 for a while and suddenly noticed that the battery no longer lasts like it used to, well I have got a quick question for you. Have you noticed a rapid decrease in the life span of your smart phone battery? If yes, then these applications might be responsible for them, if not check recent apps you might have installed of recent.

Top Applications That Are Killing Your TECNO Camon C9 Battery 

1.) FIRST WE ARE GOING TO BE TAKING A LOOK AT THE NETFLIX APP; It shouldn't come as a surprise that Netflix consumes a huge amount of data and also battery. Netflix is the go-to app for binge-watching TV shows and movies and it's your phone's display which consumes the majority of your devices power.

Consider watching with the display brightness turned down when you can. In your dark room at night, there really is no reason to have your display brightness at the maximum.

2.) THE NEXT IN LINE IS THE SNAPCHAT APP; Snapchat might be a lot of fun but it also takes a lot of resources: both in terms of memory usage and battery life. This app is one of the worst offenders in this area and can consume much of your internal storage if you aren't careful .(Despite its reputation as the photo app where all photos are immediately deleted!)

Monitor the effect its having on your mobile data too by going to settings > mobile data. You might be surprised.

3.) ANOTHER ONE WE HAVE IS THE MICROSOFT OUTLOOK APP; The microsoft Outlook app is another juice guzzler. Whether we're checking it too frequently, or the email sync frequency is too high, Outlook is a threat to your power.

You don't actually need the Outlook app, though. You can use the default Android email app to retrieve those emails.

Ideally, you should only use one email app on our device and use it to manage all of your accounts. I mean, unless you want to sync Outlook with Google Calendar. In which case, yes, it's best to have the app.

4.) THE NEXT WE HAVE IN LINE WHICH SEEMS TO BE THE ARCHITECT OF ALL IS THE PREINSTALLED FACEBOOK APP; Given how much time smartphone users on the whole spend using Facebook, it’s not all that surprising that the app tends to consume its fair share of battery. The problem, however, is that Facebook’s mobile apps have a bad tendency of tearing through battery life much quicker than what one might reasonably construe as “fair.”

5.) THE LAST WE HAVE ON OUR LIST IS THE BBC NEWS APP; Well, the big news is that the BBC News app is a battery killer. This is a tricky one because people generally want access to news on a daily basis, and the BBC is generally a reliable place to get it.

But one simple and elegant solution is to uninstall the app and create a shortcut to the BBC News website on your homescreen. It provides essentially the same experience.

if you do know of others that are not listed in here feel free to add them, no one is a body of knowledge.
