Tricks to increase the battery in all Motorola Moto X

Motorola Moto X

Motorola has in the market for a number of mobile upper-middle range that fall within the range Moto X. This family, which is quite large, is currently composed of the Moto X first and second generation and the new Moto X Force (known as Motorola Droid Turbo 2 in the US ), all of them with AMOLED- type displays  . We also have the  Moto X Play and Moto X Style ( Moto X Pure edition in the United States ), in their case with LCD screens .

Although they all have different software, much more advanced in the case of the Moto X Style, they equip similar batteries that range between 2,300 mAh ( Moto X 2014 ) and 3,000 mAh ( Moto X Style ). The duration will depend a lot on the use that is given to the device, although you can always use a series of tricks to prolong the autonomy.

Tricks for Moto X with AMOLED screens

As we say, the three models in the range to have AMOLED screens are the Moto X (2013), Moto X (2014), Moto X Force / Droid Turbo 2 . If you have any of them then you are in luck, you can save more battery. This is because each of the pixels that make up the panel light up individually, so if you use a wallpaper in dark tones you will significantly increase the duration of the device. And not only should you go to dark backgrounds, it would also be convenient to apply dark themes for applications and widgets whenever possible.

Tricks for Moto X with LCD screens

The Moto X family devices with LCD screens are the Moto X Play, Moto X Style / Moto X Pure. It is a technology that generally consumes more battery, but we can always carry out a series of adjustments to avoid that the power decreases considerably. For example, you can manually adjust the screen timeout, setting it to turn off as soon as possible. Although it may seem obvious, doing this on an LCD panel makes a big difference. The same is true for adjusting the brightness. We recommend that it always be done manually, not automatically. You can also make use of the "attentive screen" function in any of these devicesMoto, which will turn off the panel when you're not looking at it. To activate this feature go to " Settings, Display, Attentive Display".

Both for those that equip AMOLED screens and for those that have LCD panels , we could also take into account another series of issues in order to save battery life. When you are in a place with poor coverage, try to put your device in airplane mode, this will prevent it from constantly looking for networks to connect to, ensuring that the battery percentage does not drop so much. Also, keep in mind to reduce the brightness of the screen and see what connections you are not using when you see that you have little power left and it will take time to put it to charge. In that case, deactivate everything that you are not going to use and you are not looking at or browsing the device all the time.
