Think your cell phone doesn’t provide enough juice for your busy life? There are simple tricks to improve standby and talk time and increase energy efficiency.
- Reduce sound quality: If you are willing to reduce your sound quality, most GSM phones and some CDMA phones will allow you to switch to a lower data rate. Check out your phone’s owner’s manual for voice codec or general phone settings.
- Turn-off the lights: Most cell phones allow you to shorten the delay for which the display stays on. Shorten it and improve your talk and standby time.
- Be efficient: Make sure you follow the tips to boost your cell phone signal. A weak cell phone signal may lead some phones to increase the power at which they emit, thus increasing power consumption.
