Part 2: Fixing Over Heating or Battery Draining Problem of Huawei Phone

So now you have narrowed down the area of problem, and you found that there is issue with the phone itself and not with the battery and charger. You must follow the steps given below in order to fix it.

Use Third Party App to Reduce Battery Drain

It is always a good choice to use a third-party app to reduce battery drain on your smartphone. Here we are going to introduce you Greenify. Greenify, featured as Lifehacker's Top 1 Utility in 2013 Best Android Apps, is loved by many Android phone users. Greenify helps you to identify the apps you are not using and put them into hibernation, and stop them from lagging your device and leeching the battery. With no apps running in background, you will definitely see a increase of Huawei battery life.

Lighten up your phone

The first and the foremost thing that you must do is to free up you Huawei phone. You must remove the apps and data that is not usable for you. This will lighten up your phone and its processor and so your phone will have to put on less efforts which will help fixing Huawei battery problems and overheating problem.

There is no doubt that Android phones are awesome and so we can rely on them for our daily work. Whenever we go to any place, we click many pictures and videos, but we don't have time to pick the right ones from them and remove the rest so these pictures and videos not only eats up the storage but it also eats up processors speed. So it's better you clear them.

Change Settings on your phone to extend battery life

You can turn off the location service to reduce battery draining. Also, tweaking the GPS settings can help you improve the battery life. Go to Settings > Location > Mode and you will see three options. High Accuracy, which uses GPS, Wi-Fi and the mobile network to determine your position, which in turn uses quite a lot of power to do so; Battery Saving which, as the name suggests, reduces battery drain. You can change the settings to Battery Saving option.

There is another setting you can try. Go to Settings > Applications > All > Google Play Services. Here tap on Clear Cache button. This will refresh Google Play Service and stop the cache to eat up your battery.

Heavy games

Android have huge collection of games and many games so way to big. We can see new games getting launched daily. Having games on Huawei phone is not bad but you must remove the games that you do not play. You must remember that the more space is consumed the more battery draining problem you will face. Many games are there that require some resources from your phone like data connection and other sensors, these games are a big reason for battery draining and overheating.

Use good cell phone cover/case

We understand that you love your Huawei phone a lot and so you use cases and covers in order to save it from scratches and dust, but a good ventilation is very important.

Normally the covers that we buy at very cheaper rates are of poor quality and they don't have to do anything with the ventilation so you must buy the cases that are manufactured specifically for your Huawei phone by Huawei.

If you follow these steps we are sure that you won't face the same issue again and your phone will last for longer.
