Why iPhone 6S Sucks – What You Should Know

Why iPhone 6S Sucks – Top Reasons You Should Know

iPhone 6s - Major Shortcomings of the Device
The day Apple unveiled the 4.7 inch iPhone 6s and the 5.5 inch iPhone 6s plus in San Francisco, another device also unveiled that day was the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, which comes with a wonderful design. The colors of the latest Apple iPhone are; Rose Gold, Silver, Gold and Space Gray. The iPhones are available in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB storage capacities.

The motive of this article is to discuss why the iPhone 6s is not worth the hype. Before then, let us not forget that the iPhone 6s is a good phone with different features. Apple included 3D Touch on the device which makes it possible to upload pictures or check in without opening the application. For instance, simply tap the Facebook icon to upload pictures on the site.

Although, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are good devices, but they have their numerous shortcomings. Now, we are going to discuss why you should not consider buying the iPhone 6s.


1. Absence of External Storage

The fact that the iPhone 6s does not have external storage facility makes it a "No No" for me. This attribute of the iPhone also cripples file transfer. It makes it impossible to transfer items between computers without installing iTunes on the two computers. Also, you need to use file storage applications to get the work done. Although, these restrictions by Apple is to make the OS secured, but it does more harm than good to the user at times. For instance, it is frustrating when your iPhone can not perform the function when you are not with your pen drive.

2. Old 8MP Camera Composition

Following the announcement of iPhone 4S in the year 2011, the device had 8MP camera spec. This same specification is the same with subsequent iPhones like; iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This makes the camera spec unexciting, especially when you remember the fact that Nokia has a 41MP camera on a smartphone as far back as the year 2012.

Many phone users do not know that a big pixel resolution does not signify good camera spec. At times, manufacturers play smart with phone users. A 13MP camera might have poor camera resolution in comparison to another 8MP camera with good picture quality.

There are several things that make up good camera quality. For instance, the processor, the lens, the DSP engine, the sensor amongst others are features that make good camera spec.

Ordinarily, an 8MP camera with good features would work well for a common smartphone. There is simply no need for higher Mega Pixel camera spec unless the picture would be used for a large billboard showcase.

3. Mobile Device File Transfer Issue

Like the infra-red, the bluetooth file transfer might become obsolete in the next few years. This is due to the fact that there are some restrictions when it come to file transfer. It is important to know that the presence of bluetooth makes transfer of images, PDF files, documents and other documents easier between devices.

The lack of this simple transfer feature on the iPhone is not a good idea. To get a bluetooth feature, one needs to pay the sum of $9.99 through Cydia for the Celeste Bluetooth application.

Irrespective of what Apple thinks by not including the bluetooth app in the device, a random Android user would assume the absence of the transfer app should not be jeopardized for easy files transfer.

4. Jailed without a Jail-break

There are several things one can do on an Android device which can not be done on an iPhone that has been jail broken. Due to this fact, many people always refuse to upgrade their device when the release of an iOS update is announced.

An iPhone that is not jail-broken is close to being a less useful device. Although, Apple will not agree that jail-breaking the device is one of the things that still keeps the company in existence.

5. The Catch-Up Game

It is no doubt that Apple has been playing catch-up with Google. Apple used to be a pace-setter company that break old rules and set new ones for others to follow. The first ever produced iPhone and iPad set trends that every other manufacturers followed. However, many people are not impressed with Apple's latest trends.

The first 64-bit mobile device featured in the iPhone 5S was the first in world. Though, phone analysts wondered why would a 64-bit processor be featured in a smartphone. The device also have the Touch ID which was the first ever fingerprint security. Apart from these two impressive features, Apple has not produced any pace-setting feature in the last few years.

6. Other Complaints

The users of the iPhone has a lot of petty gripes about the device. From unopened source of operating system, non - removable battery, no 3rd third party store, are few of complaints leveled on the iPhone device.

Will People Purchase the iPhone 6 spec? 

No doubt, so many people like the Apple brand due to the sophistication associated with it. This means that the iPhone 6 will experience good sales. Millions of the device would be sold in the first few weeks, without recourse to the criticism the brand experiences every year.

Can One Still Consider Getting the iPhone 6 Despite its Shortcomings?

The answer is Yes! One reason to still look out for the iPhone is its secured nature. With an iPhone, one would not worry about virus attack or installation of spyware applications. From personal experience, an iPhone 5 has outlived three different Android devices. This implies that the life span of an iPhone is generally good. For iOS device freaks who has been on the platform for year, the several disadvantages of the device would be inconsequential to them.

So many users fail to upgrade their iPhones due to the fact there is little or no difference. The major upgrade of the iPhone 4s to the iPhone 5s is the fingerprint security sensor and the longer screen size.

The bigger screen of iPhone 6 makes it desirable in comparison to other iPhones. This would however make people opt for the iPhone 6 device. To be candid, the Apple brand still have deep relevance among phone users. The brand will still get a large chunk of the market for a ling time to come. However, Apple needs to step up their game and improve their product specifications. They should try and recover their lost pace-setter position and not continue to live on past glory.

Battery Life

Although, Apple has stated that the fastest processor in the world is featured iPhone 6s. This would however make the battery drain quickly, because it has a smaller battery than the iPhone 6. The battery capacity of the iPhone 6 is 1810mAh while it reduced to 85mAh on the iPhone 6s. This implies that the iPhone 6s is about 5% less in capacity.

The lovers of the Apple iPhone brand can only hope for improvement in battery life with the production of the next iPhone.


The expensive nature of the iPhone 6s is another reason to weigh your options well before purchasing the device. When in actual fact, an Android phone with better phone specification than the iPhone can be gotten with lesser price. Purchasing the iPhone 6s from Apple with a contract costs $27 for the 16GB, $31 for the 64GB and $35 for the 128GB versions respectively.

Also, purchasing the iPhone 6s without contract costs $649.99 for the 16GB, $749.99 for the 64GB and $849.99 for the 128GB versions respectively.

It will explain the differences and similarities between the two devices, with regards to their aesthetics and specs.

Tecno Camon C8 Specification:

This smartphone was launched in August 2015 and it is considered one of the stylish devices that rocked the year 2015. The Camon C8 device is specifically designed for picture lovers. The camera set-up and quality of the Camon C8 is superb.

It has a dual LED flash at the back camera and a flashlight at the front camera. The smartphone specifications are; 16GB internal storage, 1GB RAM, 3000mAh battery and Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Tecno Camon C9 Specification:

This device is an upgrade of the Camon C8 smartphone. The Camon C9 is the second device launched in the "Camon" smartphone series. The launch of this device was done in June 14, 2016. Like its predecessor, the Camon C9 is also designed for picture lovers with an upgrade in its camera specs.

According to an official of the Tecno Mobile company, the Tecno Camon C9 device will be the best camera smartphone in Africa. The official also opined that the front camera of the phone is second to none in the world.

The Tecno Camon C9 has 5.5' inch display screen, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, 3000mAh battery and Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the inclusion of the new HiOs.

The Similarities between Tecno Camon C8 and Camon C9

1. Screen Size: The two tecno smartphones have 5.5 inch display screen size.

2. Non - Removable Battery: The batteries for the Camon C8 and Camon C9 devices can not be detached from the phone.

3. Internal Storage: The two devices have 16GB internal storage capacity.

4. Front Camera Spec: These two devices from the Camon series both have LED flash in their front camera.

5. Battery Capacity: The Camon C8 and Camon C9 smartphones have the same battery capacity in common. The devices have 3000mAh battery capacity.

The Differences between Tecno Camon C8 and Camon C9

Brief Description of the Differences 

1. Camera Spec: The Camon C8 has 13MP back camera and 5MP front camera. However, the Camon C9 has 13MP for both front and back camera.

2. 4G LTE Support: The Camon C9 supports 4G LTE while the Camon C8 does not support it.

3. Android Spec: The Camon C8 uses Android 5.1 Lollipop while the Camon C9 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HiOs.

4. Body Design: The Camon C8 is designed with a metal body and a leather back cover while the Camon C9 has full metal body design.

Comparing The Component of the Camon C8 and Camon C9

1. The Design:

Having a first hand experience of the Tecno Camon C8 when it was launched in August 2016 gives me a good option to do the review of this device. The first impression I had about this device is quite impressive, as it provide quite efficient as advertised.

In regards to the body design, the Camon C8 is a beautiful smartphone which one would get attracted to at first sight. The device has a full metal body and a leather texture at the back. The Camon C8 has a slim body  even with the fact that it comes with a 3000mAh heavy battery. The light nature of this device in terms of weight is something one would also love.

However, the Tecno Camon C9 comes with full metal body design. The back cover of this device is not removable. The Camon C9 is an improvement of the Camon C8. Thus, the C9 is lighter in terms of weight, slimmer in size and has a more beautiful outlook.

2. The Performance:

The main reason why I prefer the Tecno C9 to the Camon C8 is the performance. Overtime, the C8 began to slow down in terms of performance due to the 1GB RAM on the device, even when it runs on 64-bit octa-core processor (my opinion).

However, the Camon C9 has more RAM than the Camon C8. The C9 runs on 2GB RAM and 64-bit octa-core mediatek chipset. This implies that the performance of the C9 would be better. It does faster multi-tasking than its predecessor.

3. The Camera Set-up:

On the aspect of camera , it is quite difficult to decide which smartphone edges the other , but first , let's look at the camera setup.
When it comes to the camera set-up of the two devices, it is a bit difficult to choose which one surpasses the other. However, let us look at the components of the cameras.

The Camon C8 has 5MP front and 13MP back camera. The LED Flash of the camera make pictures beautiful. Pictures taken with the Camon C8 are brighter and better picture qualities. The selfies are clear and beautiful. The Camon C8 camera has the Complexion Smart Adjust which gets rid of oily skin and beautifies the face.

Also, the Camon C9 camera spec is fascinating. This is because it comes with a whooping 13MP front and 13MP back camera. This is quite interesting and makes the camera set-up a good one for taking beautiful snapshots. The centralized nature of the C9 front camera makes the viewing area wider while taking selfies. The LED Flash is present in both the front and back camera of the Camon C9 device. Note that the LED Flash for the front camera is hidden and can only be seen when selfies are taken.

Another good thing about the Camon C9 camera is that it has 83 degree wide - angle range for selfies. This simply means that the device works effectively well while taking group selfies.

Features such as; HSR Mode, Panorama Mode, Visidon and Smart Gesture are also embedded in the Camon C9 camera. One cannot really argue about the device being the best camera smartphone in Africa with the composition of the above mentioned features in the camera set-up.

What Happened to Google Glass? How Long Should We Wait?

Google Glass Price and Release Date - What is the Update? 

What happened to google glass? After google glass release date, Microsoft showcased their HoloLens technology including its gaming applications some weeks back. The exhibition was rad.

The advancement in technology is really shaping the world. This virtually augmented google glass eyewear race - HoloLens, Oculus Rift and Google Glass will definitely bring the future to our doorstep in no time.

The Google Glass Project

Recently, it appears Google has soft - pedalled on the Google Glass technology. What is the update on this technology after releasing the google glass video? Why has Google remained silent about it? When do we expect this piece of tech to be fully available for use?

How does google glass work?

Google got the attention of everyone right from the period the announcement was made. The Google Glass technology uses goggles that enables one to video capture any item sighted. This is done with the use of a voice command.

Other google glass features that could be done with this technology is that, one could have music sheets pinned to the glass corner while a guitar is being practised. Also, one could overlay a map ahead while walking. One would be made a modern day T100 technology without a metal skeleton with the Google glass tech.

The exhibition for this technology was big and it caught the attention of everyone. An entire episode in the Simpsons was even dedicated to this technology. The latest Google Glass 2 will definitely change everything about technological advancement.

Despite the media fare that welcomed this tech, Google declined on selling the new Google Glass smartphones to the public and returned it to the laboratory. This act by Google did not proof the intended efficacy of the technology to the populace who waited anxiously to get it. It appeared like Google gave up on the tech, thus it was withdrawn from the market.

Although, Google made a lot of bad decisions in regards to the product launching and marketing. The $1,500 google glass price point for the tech is one of such poor decisions. Presently, it appears Google has more plans to upgrade the capacity and technologies of the Glass before tampering with the price of google glass. There are many stores to buy google glass online.

The Glass was tested by beta users also known as "Glass Explorers" for one year before Google recalled it to the lab. An announcement was made by Google that the Glass tech team would be leaving the Google X laboratory to their own department.

This action marked the beginning of the silence on the Google Glass tech. Nothing has been heard from this team ever since the movement occurred.

This silence is enough to make one lose interest on the well publicized google glass technology.

Actually, the fact that the Google Glass team is getting their own department could mean work is still going on with the technology. The knowledge of other VR technologies might give the team more ideas to include in the Glass.

A fact has emerged that Tony Fadell has been invited to be a part of the team that would work on the Glass project. He is one of the capones that worked on the first generations of iPods.

The question now is, Can we keep hopes alive for those who want to get Google Glass?

NTEL 4G LTE Data Plans, Coverage, Devices - What Happened?

NTEL NIGERIA 4G LTE NETWORK: Unlimited 4G Internet For Nigerians

The moment new broke out about Ntel 4G LTE network in Nigeria, a lot of Nigerians rushed to carry out ntel reserve number for their SIM which is a unique 0804 number. This followed what the company promised that ntel coverage would soon be strong in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt as they continue to add more cities to the list and roll out more ntel data plans.

Unfortunately, Ntel did not live up to expectation. Why? Ntel has completely abandoned other cities yearning for their 4G service. I do not want to believe the market is too competitive or that the company does not have what it takes to roll out its services in other cities across the country.

Sometime in June this year, we were updated via ntel nigeria website by a representative from their Abuja office that more infrastructure for transmission are still being installed in several locations, up to 200 in Portharcourt and Abuja and double of that number in Lagos.

We were also told that one a cities comes under coverage, a list of locations to purchase Ntel sims would be made available to the public. November is gradually winding up and we have not heard anything tangible.

Ntel is currently working with some cellphone manufacturing companies to roll out affordable 4G phones that can operate on their 4G LTE band considering that most 4G phones in the market are quite pricey.

At the moment you can only use your Ntel sim in Abuja and Lagos. Maybe Ntel has decided to give up on other cities and states in the country.

I hope Ntel coverage in and outside Lagos improves and the prices of their mifi, router and other 4G devices become cheaper for the common man. Do you Ntel Nigeria apn and the LTE band?

Well, for my Naija people who have started looking for ntel 4g cheat and free browsing techniques (fbt), please chill o, allow this company stabilize before you bombard their server, lol.

Will There Ever Be Airtel 4G LTE Network in Nigeria?

AIRTEL 4G NIGERIA: When will Airtel Nigeria Launch their own 4G LTE Service?

This is something giving me serious concern considering the trend at which new 4G networks continue to enter the Nigerian internet market. Many mobile users are now looking forward to buying 4G LTE smartphones in order to enjoy the amazing browsing and downloading speed that 4G networks offer.

In a few years time, 3G networks will become history just as nobody listens to music with a cassette walkman anymore.

Some weeks ago, Glo, MTN and  Etisalat have already rolled out their 4G networks. The truth is we should not deceive ourselves. Almost all the cities in Nigeria do not have enough coverage yet and even though the ISPs claim their 4G internet speed is like thunder, browsing with such network can be very annoying if you are connecting from a poor coverage zone.

Etisalat 4G LTE service for instance is yet to cover more than 70 percent of Lagos, so what are we saying. Well, I just hope these network companies up their game and increase their coverage in covered and uncovered zones in the country.

The last time I was in a Glo mobile shop, I was shocked to see the babe attending to me surfing away on MTN 4G LTE. Wow, so when it comes to speed, everybody know their levels. I love 4G LTE because of the amazing internet speeds that it offers and so Airtel should speed up whatever plan they have in the pipeline.

The case of Airtel is like an abandoned baby, crying on a cold lonely planet. It appears the network is neglected and may not be able to cope with the pressure from their subscribers who may feel cheated out of experiencing the speed of 4G LTE networks in Nigeria.

Can we say Airtel Nigeria is still interested in launching their own 4G LTE service in the country at all? Even if it is a yes, I don't see it coming out anytime. Hey, for those using Airtel weekend plans, I just discovered I can roll over unused data, have you?

Whatsapp Increased Maximum Group Members From 100 to 256

Do you know you can now have up to 256 members in your whatsapp group?

Whatsapp just increase the maximum number of users allowed in a group from 100 people to 256 people. In 2004, this limit was increased from 50 users to 100 and has been increased again now because the app users keeps growing everyday.

As the most widely used instant messaging app and the most popular social messaging app, whatsapp really needs this change. Over 40 billion messages are exchanged on whatsapp daily and in jan 2016, Whatsapp announced that the $1 yearly subscription due has been canceled making the app completely free for use forever.

For those who have not been notified of this update, all you need do is upgrade to latest whatsapp version. This is the only way you can double the number of people allowed in one whatsapp group.

For the mean time, this expansion in group capacity is only available on iOs and android devices but Whatsapp has announced that it will extend the feature to other platforms as soon as possible.

What Are Your Experiences so Far Using WhatsApp Video Calling?

What Do You Think of WhatsApp Video Calling Features?

Many mobile users gradually lost interest in the use of Duo after the video calling feature appeared on their Whatsapp messenger. The only issue is that if you check critically, you will discover that only a small fraction of people on your whatsapp contact list actually have downloaded the whatsapp version with video calling enabled. The bulk of whatsapp users turn out to be normal whatsapp users.

The truth is when it comes to clarity of calls, Whatsapp video calling feature is not perfect yet. But if your internet connection is fast and stable, you should enjoy some good quality calls. Using 4G LTE network here on my device, I discovered that i could see my call receiver clearly, both video and audio qualities were top notch. However, upon switching to 3G, I discovered that my video calls took forever to connect.

On a side note, I tried calling people whose whatsapp did not support video calling and was immediately notified that I can't place a call. The message displayed was that the user I was trying to call is using a phone that does not support video calling.

Let see how things go, hopefully normal whatsapp users should be able to enjoy video call feature through Google Play Store. Whatsapp admins are still testing this great video calling feature so try to send a feedback anytime you use the service.

If you ask me, I don't know what you are still using Google Duo for on your android phone. What has been your experience so far using Whatsapp video calling on your phone? Share.

How iPhone 7 Owners Drilled Holes into Their Phones To Create Audio Jack

Desperate iPhone 7 Owners Drill Holes on Their Devices to Create 3.5mm Jack

I was surfing online recently when I came across the extent to which an authority brand can mislead people. Do you believe that several iPhone 7 device owners drilled holes into their cellphones when they mistake a prank for a Do-It-Yourself guide to create the absent 3.5mm audio jack.

Many mobile phone users have been reluctant about buying the newly introduced iPhone 7 because of the removal of the traditional headphone jack which was replaced with wireless air pods. Millions of iPhone customers do not believe in the company's dream that the future of sound is wireless. There has been so much buzz over this issue because while some are in support of the Apple's stand, many others are totally against it.

A video detailing how to get the non-existent audio jack (3.5mm) was posted on Youtube by TechRax. In the video, the instructed drilled through a clamped down iPhone 7 device with a 3.5mm drill and was tagged, 'This video tutorial for iPhone users who do not want to spend money on wireless air pods or go through the stress of using adapters anytime the need to listen to music'

Because TechRax has a reputation of posting helpful tech tips and tutorials, it is quite unfortunate that many people have actually drilled through their iPhone 7 in reality, damaging their device in the process.

Do you know that this youtube video has gotten almost 10 million views already? I feel sad for many out there who may still end up trying this dangerous tutorial.

Google or Salesforce May End Up Buying Twitter Soon

Twitter Reportedly Considering Sale to Google or Salesforce

Do you know that Twitter stocks jumped up by over twenty percent increase due to circulating reports that the company is about to be sold to other giant internet corporations. Reports from CNBC has it that interested negotiators such as Verizon, Salesforce and Google are much particular in the data trends generated by active Twitter users.

This year has been a rocky one for Twitter as a business considering the thirty percent drop in the price of its stocks. Potential advertisers now prefer Facebook for advertising and some users find it hard to understand the workings of Twitter. According to professionals, this has resulted in low user base growth and poor monetization over the past few years.

Many financial analyst believe that it will be more beneficial for Twitter as a business if Salesforce end up buying it. It is also important to note that both Google and Salesforce have been silent about this new development. However, Vala Afshar who is the Chief digital promoter made his opinion know on Twitter recently.

Twitter has been in fierce competition with fast rising social networking sites since Jack Dorsey took up the position of CEO  two years ago. The introduction of social videos on Twitter which was initiated from deals like the National Football League games has brought slight improvement to the static growth state experienced by the company.

Debates from the general elections are proposed to be streamed live on Twitter even as speculations increase that the purchase deal would be finalize before the end of this year.

Smile Vs Spectranet Vs Swift Vs Ntel Data Price and Internet Speed

Comparing Smile Versus Spectranet or Ntel Internet Data Price, Connection and Download Speed, Coverage and Stability

Which Is The best Mifi Network To Use? Which one is the most reliable? Which one is more affordable or expensive? Many people especially Nigerians want to know which mifi modem works better: smile or spectranet?

I will be sharing some insights in terms of the price of their internet data plans as well as internet speed, stability and coverage. I'm not going to be comparing MTN, Glo, Airtel or Etisalat with any of these 4G LTE services because they are clearly not on the same frequency.

Now many of you are yet to test the high speed LTE internet data that Spectranet offer and even most of you that reside in the cities where Spectranet services are currently available, some of you still rely on the 2G/3G data services that MTN, Glo, Airtel and Etisalat offer you.

If you are yet to experience the high speed LTE internet data services that Spectranet and others offer and you are in a city where their services are available but you prefer to stick to the frustrating speed of 2G/3G networks, your loyalty is unshakable oo.

With a good stable LTE internet data package, you can stream most 720p and sometimes 1080p videos without buffering.

If you are particular on fast speed internet not minding the more expensive data plans ranging from 5GB, 10GB to 100Gb, please go for Smile network. Spectranet offer moderate 4G internet connection at pocket friendly rates. Some differences are based on your location.

I have both smile and swift mifi. From my personal experience, these are the major advantages and disadvantages:

Smile internet speed is faster that swift, the smifi (Smile 4G Modems) battery last longer and their is the option of 12 years validity which starts from data plans with 10GB data volume above. Smile service is more expensive though for heavy users and downloaders like me but I still respect their pay as you go package. Modem comes with a 5Gb bonus data.

Swift is not as fast as smile, their coverage does not cover some outskirts of Lagos you lose network once you get to some outskirt of Lagos. Fortunately, Swift data plans are less expensive than smile It has amazing plans far cheaper than swift

Ntel high speed LTE services came with a bang but it is disappointing to note that despite their promises of providing affordable data plans, their services has not been extended to other major cities in Nigeria.

It is your location that determines which one is better. If you live in a city where spectranet coverage is better, you will be tempted to think spectranet is the best and if Swift is better in your location, you will be biased towards it.

Do you need a reliable and cost effective ISP to power your internet cafe business? I have tried to compare Smile with spectranet and other 4G internet solutions in Nigeria. Do you live in Abuja, Lagos, Ibadan, Port Harcourt or Enugu? Between Spectranet LTE data, Smile internet and the rest, where are you based and which one are you using at the moment?

10+ Ways to Make Your Smartphone Battery Last Longer

How To Make iPhone and Android Phone Battery Last Long

Smartphone users are often faced with the challenge of how to make their smartphone battery last long. Problems with battery usage range from fast draining, to weak battery  to battery not lasting up to expectation.

Have you had to charge your battery many times in the day? Talk about batteries of weak capacities which can be due to spoilage or the brand of the phone or battery.

This article is a compilation of the many ways to ensure your android battery last longer than expected.

Ways to Make Your Smartphone Battery Last Longer

Avoid Heat
Always make sure your device or its battery is stored in a cool environment. Hot surfaces or heated rays have a way of destroying the component elements of most Lithium batteries.

Maximize Power Saving Mode
When you do not need internet access or when your battery level gets to like 40 percent, put the phone on power saving mode. This saves battery and makes it last

Screen Brightness
The brightness of your screen display carries a lot of implications when it comes to how lasting your smartphone will be. Brightness of the screen uses up almost 40 percent of battery charge. To make your battery last long, always dim your screen or enable auto brightness.

Screen Timeout
The shorter the timeout, the better for your battery. For your battery to last, every seconds is important. Keep the screen timeout between 15 seconds and below.

I know you love using bluetooth enabled hands-free to listen to music or radio on your phone. Leaving your bluetooth on for long consumes your battery more due to the extra power needed for the radio signals.

Disable GPS Tracking
Online map reading and GPS tracking should only be powered on when you need navigation services. This is because satellite and radio signals necessary for this features consumes a lot of battery.

Disable Automatic Update
Smartphones including iPhones by default are designed to keep their software components up to date. Such device try to periodically scan for new updates to their units and download updates automatically. To improve your battery stand-time, please put update option from 'Auto' to 'Manual Mode'

Disable Background App Refresh
Background App Refresh ensures that your apps are updated with the latest news and information. This is commendable because it keep both you and the app updated. The only downside is that such refresh makes considerable demand on a lot of battery power. If you do not need background app refresh it at the moment? Turn it off.

Location Services
To make your battery last very long, try to disable location service on your android. To achieve this, enable the feature to turn off location services. This option is located under the privacy settings.

App Battery Usage
It is not every app you use all the time, to know which apps consumes the most battery charge, navigate to settings, then to battery and then check out the one that uses the most battery power, it is not one that you use often, please disable it.

Camera Flash
Apart from the distracting and disruptive features of camera flash, no one looks good with a picture taken with flashes. This aside, use of camera flashes should be avoided if it is possible considering the fact that it drains your battery fast.

Do you know my phone battery can last me up to 2 days without charging? How long does your smartphone battery last? Share.

After doing this, navigate back to the main settings option , you will then see the developers options below the list of items on display.
