How to Increase Sony Ericsson neo Battery Life

Sony Ericsson NeoFor all those who have managed to get the latest Android phone which is dubbed as Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo. With LED backlit LCD screen which comes with the 16 Million colors and a 3.7 inches super bright screen along with the Sony Mobile Bravia Engine you will for sure experience the problem of lesser battery issue. This phone is also is powered by a not so good battery life though this phone has a super big battery power of 1500mah. The only reason of lesser battery life in practical is because of optimization of the firmware. Since Android being the new phone in the market and you might have earlier used Nokia or even normal Sony Ericsson phones which are powered by Java come with the better battery life as it has optimized the battery life. The best part of this phone is that this phone hardware is best of the lot and also with such a huge power you can easily capitalize on the battery so that you can make the most out of your phone.

Optimize the battery Power:

Basically to optimize the battery power there are several factors which needs to be considered right from the signal strength to the network configuration to the environmental temperatures to the settings and features which you select or opt as the usage pattern of every single user depends and varies a lot which in short decides the battery level or the battery pattern and not to forget the data and voice pattern too decides a lot in the battery power. To increase battery performance you can turn off Bluetooth, GPS, Mobile network, Wi-Fi, notifications and other options that you may not frequently use. You can also decrease the screen brightness, the Screen timeout time. These are just few core and important things which you need to follow to optimize the battery power.

Usage Pattern:

Like it’s mentioned that lot depends on the usage pattern, one has to ensure that the longer the use of multimedia and voice or data usage the faster will be the battery drain. So, this doesn’t mean that you should completely turn off the usage of your phone and keep the phone in the idle mode but some of the core functionalities like camera, Blue tooth, WiFi, GPS and with the use of continuous data you are sure to be at the end of battery life as with the simultaneous usage of such usage pattern the battery life tends to drain the fastest.  Many of the users have the tendency to put the phone in the full brightness mode but such usage pattern actually degrades the battery life very quickly and also its either recommended to set the brightness level to either automatic or to the minimum level as per your requirement.

Wall Papers:

We all love setting up the wallpapers which are either rich in colours or have the motion wallpapers like Live wall papers but actually this is the biggest battery drainer as what happens exactly is due to continuous motion on the screen of the Live wallpapers, the screen tends to move and hence which eats up the battery power to the maximum as it’s a continual process. Also, it’s recommended to use the darker wallpapers rather than lighter wallpapers as to glow up lighter wallpapers it will require more battery life and with darker wallpapers it requires less battery life as there’s not much to glow up in the darker wallpapers.


Also, it’s very important that you always make use of the original accessories for charging your phone like original Charger and the original battery as the duplicate accessories may even spoil your phone as the ratings are compromised with. Also, it’s not advised to charge via the USB charging as in fact this trickles the charge which is not good for the battery and always use the AC Chargers. It will take a flat 3 hours of time to charge your HTC Droid Eris, but it may take longer when you charge with the USB charger.

Use Power Widget:

With the help of the power control widget you can control host of things with just one simple widget you can control 5 different things which are Wi Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync and also the brightness can be controlled. If the battery is less then you need to ensure that all of these options are turned Off so that there is no way that the battery is wasted by these core features which eat up most of the battery charge.

My Settings

With 3G just in place, most of the users won’t be using it, and so does if you are not the one who will not make either video calls or even access the data at 3G speeds due to higher tariff then there is no sense in choosing the 3G Good old 2G is perfect for calls and texts, so kill 3G unless you’re planning a bit of emergency web browsing on your phone. You’ll also benefit from the general feeling of increased calmness that follows naturally once you’ve stopped staring at the 3G icon every two minutes and fretting about what your mobile network connection state is. So, until and unless you are not using the 3G services, it’s not recommended to set the dual mode of network.

So, in this way you can easily save on the battery life for your Sony Ericsson Neo due to which you can eventually save on the battery life and in turn you can increase the same. If you have got some more tips on how to increase the battery life then do let us know in the comments section below.
