One of the most headache problems has caused Google is the battery consumption of its operating system, especially if compared to its main rival iOS. This is because, by default, even if we close the applications we do not use.
They are not completely finished and are always “latent” waiting to receive any call or need to interact with the user. Although some manufacturers, such as Huawei, include in their roms much more aggressive battery-saving systems.
It has not been until Android 6.0 Marshmallow when Google has tried to finish once and for all with them and until this new version, Android 7.0 Nougat, when Has finally found the formula for it.
Thanks to the Doze, Android is able to completely close all applications the user needs when not in use so that the battery consumption of these zero. In addition, in case you want to use some of the time to throw is virtually nil.
Then we will see how to access the battery manager Android 7.0 Nougat, options including the administrator and configure the applications we want. A nd do not want to be hibernating while we do not use the device.
How Battery Manager and Power Saver Mode Work in Android 7.0 Nougat
Although technically the battery manager of this new version of Android works the same as the previous version. Yes it has received some cosmetic changes and improvements in order to better adapt to the general operating system interface and, above all, be what As simple as possible for the user.
The first thing to do is to access the ” Settings ” section of our Android and locate the section ” Battery “. As we can see, here we are the percentage of battery available and the estimated time of duration.
Click on it and we will see a new screen where a graph of battery consumption will appear and in which all the energy has gone to us.
If we click on the graph we can see a much more detailed consumption of this.
In the previous screen, in the bottom part, we will be able to see all the applications and the elements of the system that more battery has consumed. If we click on each one of them we can see more details about it, tips to reduce its consumption and, in the case of being an application, the option to uninstall it.
Turn on Android’s “Power Saving” mode
For some versions, Android has a mode of energy saving where it blocks the execution in the background of all applications and only basic connections are maintained. For example, to the mobile network to call, but not to navigate. In this way, when the battery reaches critical levels we can maximize its duration.
By default, this function is disabled, however, on the main screen of the battery manager we can access it. And choose whether to activate it manually or if we want this saving mode to be activated automatically when a limit is reached, for example, 15 % Or 5%.
Seen this, now we will go deeper into how to tell the operating system which applications we want to optimize (close) to save battery and which ones do not.
How to configure Doze on Android 7.0 Nougat
To access the configuration of Dose, from the summary of the battery press the button that comes out at the top and click on ” Optimization of battery “.
We will see a new screen where we will see, by default, applications that are not optimized. We can click on ” No optimize ” to open the complete list of all the applications installed in the operating system.
Now, the only thing left for us to do is to find the application that we want (or do not want) to be optimized and click on it. We will see that we have two options:
- Optimize, to activate the Android automatic battery saving.
- Do not optimize, so the app can make unlimited use of resources.
We choose the option that we want to apply and ready. It is advisable to have the greatest possible number of applications optimized so that the battery can last as much as possible, however, if an application us problems, it is best to remove it from the list by checking the ” No optimise ” or so, while always remaining in the background, manage and guarantee us know Android notifications.
