3. The most underground way to improve your smartphone battery life
We all have tried to keep our phone’s brightness as low as we can when we are indoor to save battery power. But another hack is simpler, just choose a dark or black simple wallpaper for your phone’s screen. This will help in saving the battery power as the automatic pixel highlighting will turn off. The more colours and pictures you use the more of pixel highlighting is required. Although this hack is no applicable for every android phone. Mostly this works for Samsung smartphones and tablets. It is one of the best in 8 Top Secret Android Functions .
How black wallpaper can save battery?
If you have a LED display (usually refered to as OLED or AMOLED.) rather than an LCD display then yes it will save energy.
LED displays only turn on the LED pixels when there is color, black would mean off.
Of course, this only applies when the wallpaper is visible. Personally when I am using my phone the wallpaper isn’t visible and when I am not using it the phone’s screen is off.
I do however, have the background color set as dark as possible in any apps I use which have that setting available.
4. Control your smart phone through your head
Sometimes you find yourself in a situation where either your hands are occupied or it is just too cold outside to bring your hands out of your jacket. For those hard times you can install a free app called Eva Facial Mouse. This app is so fun to use you cannot even imagine. You just tilt your head side ways to control your device.
