In this article, you will learn a few tips and tricks on how to improve the battery life of your Realme 8 and Realme 8 Pro. The Realme 8 comes with a 4500 mAh battery while the Realme 8 Pro comes with a 5000 mAh battery, which should be enough to last throughout the day.
However, sometimes you might need more battery life. Maybe you are on a road trip and your power bank is dead, maybe the lights have gone off, or maybe you just want your phone to last a little longer in one charge. No matter the reason, there are a few ways you can improve the battery life of your Realme 8.
How to improve the battery life of the Realme 8
Here are a few tips to improve the battery life of your Realme 8. If you are a power user and long-time Android user, you probably know most of these tips. However, most new users will appreciate the tips listed below.
1. Enable Dark Mode
This is the first thing you should do with every phone you purchase. Dark Mode switches the mode of your phone between dark and light. When this mode is on, the background of almost every app is dark.
This has two benefits, not only one. The first benefit is, of course, better battery life. Most phones nowadays have AMOLED displays. This technology, unlike LCD traditional displays, completely turns off individual pixels on dark backgrounds. This approach saves battery because those disabled pixels do not use any power. Dark mode makes everything dark, so it helps in saving battery life. Furthermore, dark mode is much easier on the eyes, because there is less blue light being emitted from the screen.
To enable Dark Mode, go to Settings -> Display -> Dark Mode and tap on the toggle. Optionally, you can enable this option directly from the navigation drawer.
2. Enable Power Saving Mode
The next step is to enable Power Saving Mode. Power Saving has improved over the years and is now a reliable method of increasing battery life. You can simply enable this mode directly from the navigation drawer, and you will immediately get a few more hours.
Power Saving Mode saves a considerable amount of battery, by limiting the phone’s performance and limiting the number of apps running at the same time. To do so, go to Settings -> Battery & Performance -> Battery Saver. Additionally, you can go even further and enable Ultra Battery Saver, which limits the phone’s performance even more.
These are a few tips and tricks to increase the battery life of your Realme 8. Of course, there are no definite ways to make the battery last longer, but these are methods that you should definitely try.
