With the advances in their technology mobile phones of today allow us not only to make calls and receive or send text message from any place that has a decent phone signal, but also to check our mail, browse the internet, participate in social networking, determine our precise location, and much, much more. But that freedom is not without its limitations. Most of those new possibilities come with a price – battery life is, even when we consider the fact that significant improvements to the batteries themselves have been made, getting shorter due to the high demands that these new technologies and possibilities are placing on the battery. If you had an old phone for a while, you might be surprised when you see that batteries, even on brand new smartphones, last for just one day or slightly longer. If that is too short for your liking you need to reassess the way you use your phone and develop some new habits that will help you make the battery on your phone last for at least a little bit longer.
