How I increased my Nexus 4 battery life to 48 hours on one charge

I did several things to increase the battery life on my Nexus 4 phone. Here's a list of all the things I did. I am not sure exactly what led to the biggest improvement in battery life because I didn't do extensive testing at each step. Here they are:

Unlock, custom ROM, packages

Configuration

  • If you can, delete the Facebook app and use Facebook in your browser instead.
  • Disable notifications and auto-updating/auto-syncing in as many apps as you can.
  • Look at what is using the most battery under "Setings->Battery" and remove any apps that you don't actually need.
  • If you can, disable Google Now and Google Location Reporting (found in "Settings->Location").
  • Put "Location->Mode" into "Battery saving" mode
  • Under "Settings->Sound" disable "Touch sounds", "Vibrate on touch", and "Screen lock sound"
  • Under "Settings->Language & Input->Android Keyboard (AOSP)" disable "Sound on keypress" and "Vibrate on keypress"
  • In the Hellscore Kernel Manager, set the CPU "Min Freq" to 94 MHz.
  • After recharging your phone and using it for a whole discharge cycle, look at Partial Wakelocks in the BetterBatteryStats app.
  • Using the Greenify app, Hibernate as many of the apps that show up in the "App Analyzer" as you can.
  • In "Settings->Display & lights->Brightness", set to "Auto" and then click the gear to configure. Enable "adjust to sunrise and sunset". Click "Adjust" and move all the sliders to the left by about 5% or so.
  • Get a watch so you don't have to wake-up your phone to check the time.

Now I can get about 48 hours on one charge with minimal usage (checking email once in a while, sending a few messages, checking a few web pages.

Tapi tunggu sebentar, masih ada beberapa gelembung di sana kan? Dari mana mereka berasal? Yah, hampir semua baking powder adalah apa yang disebut sebagai "double-acting." Sama seperti namanya, ia menghasilkan gas dalam dua tahap yang berbeda.

Yang pertama terjadi begitu Anda mencampurnya dengan air; Yang kedua hanya terjadi saat dipanaskan. Kenaikan kedua dalam wajan ini membuat pancake ekstra terang dan lembut.

Bagaimana Anda membuat pancake Anda berdiri lebih tinggi dan lebih ringan?

Saya suka menggunakan putih telur meringue yang telah dicambuk dengan kencang sampai mereka membentuk busa semisolid.

This is such an extraordinary asset, to the point that you are giving and you give it away for nothing. I cherish seeing blog that comprehend the benefit of giving a quality asset to free. Josh Greenly
