How to optimize battery in Android Marshmallow

You do know that Android is the best platform and undoubtedly, its services and features, we love them. Android is giving its best day by day by providing regular updates and upgrades to its systems. 
Your remember when Android launched the Marshmallow version? Well that was something everybody wanted but soon after it's release, many phones just couldn't bear it due to some problems. One of them includes the battery problem. Many users complained that the battery of their phones drains too fast. 
But still, just don't worry. We've this guide dedicated for you.

Let's start with the guide to saving battery in Android Marshmallow. 

1) Take care of the RAM
The most important thing in your phones is the RAM management and how you manage it. Go to Settings > Memory > Memory used by apps, to see a list of all your memory consuming apps. Tapping an entry will show you detailed info and give you the option to force stop the app if necessary. Get to know which apps consume a lot of RAM and battery because they are the ones that cause problems to your phones running Android Marshmallow.

2) Notification Peeking-A problem
Notification peeking was first introduced in Android Lollipop and the notifications used to linger on your lock screen and main screen. Better is to turn it off because it really consumes a lot of your battery. Go to Settings > Sound & Notifications > App Notifications, then select the apps they're coming from, and switch off Allow peeking. 

3) Uninstall apps from home screen
You may never have noticed but keeping apps installed on your home screen consumes a lot of battery too. You can uninstall an app on your home screen or in your app drawer simply by long-pressing it and uninstalling it on the home screen, or switch to App Info and Uninstall in the app drawer.

4) Take care your apps
Unlike previous Android versions, Android Marshmallow doesn't break your apps list down into tabs for 'Downloaded', 'Running', 'All' and 'Disabled'. The 'Running' tab appears as a RAM manager and 'All' and 'Disabled' are options in a drop down menu, accessible once you've disabled at least one app. You can actually manage your apps well, take care of the space that they consume as well as disabled or uninstall any unnecessary app. Most of the times, the battery consuming apps linger there.

5) Activate Developer Options
You can enable developer options by going to Settings > About Phone and tap Build Number seven times until a toast pop-up notifies you that you are now a developer. Back up a step and you'll see Developer options listed right above About Phone. The developer options give you a more deeper look into your phone where you can customize a few tweaks and fix some unnecessary things. Normally, you can disable animations to save more battery.

6) Disable live themes and wallpapers
You may have heard a lot about this but live wallpapers really hurt your battery a lot. We know that you love these things in your phone but believe us, they too consume a lot of battery, even when the screen is off. Better is to switch to a normal wallpaper rather than keeping a live one. 

7) DO NOT install any battery optimizer
No we're not kidding. Not in any case should you install a battery optimizer. If your battery is draining fast, still don't install any cleaner or battery optimizer because they are the one who consume most of your battery. Your phone is better without them. The problem with them is that they keep running in the background continuously and consuming up a lot of RAM. 

8) Try reducing your phone's brightness.
Normally people like Auto Brightness because the screen adjusts itself according to the light available and makes looking into the screen comfortable but that is the thing that consumes a lot of battery. The sensors have to work long for adjusting your brightness. Try keeping it a little low than normal. That will be the best for you to save your phone's battery.

9) Disable Synchronization
We know that sync in your phone is a better option to receive emails and other notifications instantly but who would like to let your phone do it every now and then and get you a lot of notifications from different apps? It really consumes a lot of battery. The better alternative is that you manually open an app and start synchronizing it so that you receive notifications only when you want to and save battery too. 

10) Activate 'Doze' in your Marshmallow
Doze actually is a good feature provided in Android Marshmallow. It activates when your phone is left idle for a period of time, while unplugged and with the screen off. It will stop some CPU and network activity operating in the background for some Android apps, thus saving battery. 

If you still face any issues, let us know in the comment section below. Just try these options. We're sure that they will help the battery in your Android Marshmallow to drain at a lower extent.
