How To Enable Battery save on your Android 5.1 Smartphone
Android 5 has been around for a while now and is loved by many thanks to its excellent multitasking skills and high level of energy efficiency.
One of the things that makes Android 5 superior to previous Android systems is the new battery saver modes. Available on Android 5.0 and 5.1, this mode helps us get the most from our Smartphone’s and ensures we have more battery life by limiting the background data and lowering the performance slightly.
It’s perfect for when your battery is ruining low and you need to make a few extra calls or and Google claim that with the battery saver mode enabled you can extend your battery life by up to 90 minutes
Some main brand devices like LG, HTC and Samsung have their own version of this but the ability is fairly much the same and you can enjoy it on most Android 5.1 devices regardless of whether it’s a high street brand or not.
There are two ways you can enable this function on your stock android device.
The First Way.
Swipe down on the notification try and you will see the battery icon and percentage displayed.
Tab this icon
Click the Menu button, (The 3 little dots in the top right corner)
Select Battery Saver
The Second Way
Click on battery
Tap the Menu option.
Once in the menu you can set the mode to automatically activate when your phones battery is reduced to just 15% or 5% remaining charge. By default the battery saver is set to never turn on.
Now, when your phones battery drops to 15% or 5% you will receive a notification asking you if you want to enable the function.
From here you can set the mode to turn on automatically once your battery reaches 15 or 5 percent, or you can manually switch it on. By default, battery saver mode is set to never turn on automatically, however you will be prompted with a notification asking if you’d like to turn it on once your battery reaches 15 percent.
When battery saver mode is enabled, an orange bar will appear at the top and bottom of the screen. The feature will turn off automatically when you begin to charge your device.
