How to save your phone battery consumption

Taking note of battery consumption in your phone is very vital, even if you always have a constant source of recharging it, unless you want to go around carrying charging cords and having to stay close to the wireless or wired charging corner. 

After searching for the best battery saver for android and a means of optimising my battery usage, so i don’t have to worry about running out of power or recharging , i actually did not find any until now. I will show you how i saved my battery consumption by 90%, yea, 90% you read that right. 
Even though phone manufacturers have topped their battery capacities to about 4000mAh and above you still see no difference in battery duration. There are several reason why your battery is being used up, aside your screen being the main hog, high end applications do share the table here, when left to run on background. There are several free apps on Google play store that can help pin point those apps, i’m not able to recommend one for now. Actually, optimising your battery can increase the life of android phone.
Having pointed out the main factors that can take much from your phone battery, let me take you through this practical means of saving your battery consumption. Lowering your screen brightness to an adaptive luminance is your saving grace. Go over to your phone settings and tap on “Battery” in the menu to see how your phone battery is being used. You will find out that your phone screen is actually consuming  your battery 5x other apps there. So to bring an end to this misuse, go over to Google play store and download Dimly – Download here.

Dimly is your battery saving grace, the application can help reduce the eating up of battery by your screen by adjusting brightness, that’s just the simple trick. Your phone inbuilt adaptive brightness can’t be as helpful as Dimly. I use an MTK device that has it’s lowest screen brightness as bright as the morning sun.
After i got Dimly i could step down the brightness lower than the phone inbuilt screen adaptive can go. Dimly is very easy to use and in addition, it comes with screen blue-light fix, for those having problem with blue light from the screen, like me.
So, install Dimly, run the application, set preferences as you may like. You can opt in for the shake to restore that brings back the normal screen. You can properly use Dimly as android power management app.  Dimly paid version is ad free and i recommend you go for that. 
Fell free to tell the goodnews in the comment section.

MTN APN Configuration That Works – Mobile and Modem

Published

on

MTN APN is what is required to enable internet connection on your phone. APN is an acronym for Access Point Name. Access Point Name is typically the name of the gateway connecting your internet enabled device to the web through an internet service provider, such as MTN.

Most often we run into the problem of missing APN configuration and can’t surf the web with our phone or modem. If you have your APN configured before now and you still cannot browse, make the listed below are in order.

  • Data subscription balance
  • Data monitor app threshold
  • Other phones of same network can browse. Your inability to browse could be a general problem from the service provider at the moment.
  • Network signal reception

In Nigeria you can fall into the hands of the wrong people, who will charge you high amount of money in the name of configuring your phone for browsing.

To get the configuration pushed automatically to your phone by MTN.

Send as a text message “Settings” to 3888. Without quotes.

If the above method fails to get you APN configuration, you can fall back to configuring it yourself which always works.

For Mobile phones, navigate to “mobile network” in settings through more connections option, and you should see APN configuration option there.

Note: If your device works just fine, you are advised not to go further. But if for a reason you deleted the pre-installed APN configuration and you want to get it back. You’re welcome. The configurations work for 2G, 3G and 4G network type.

Access Point Name is unique to every service provider and can come pre-configured in SIM cards. When you slot in a new SIM card into a phone, it goes through it’s initiation to the service provider’s system. The service provider can then push necessary configurations to the device. Devices with MTN SIM card making an internet connection must be configured with an APN to present to MTN.

MTN will then examine this APN to determine what type of connection should be created, for example: which IP addresses should be assigned to the wireless device, which security methods should be used, etc. All of which is done in a second by a programmed system.

Hard to say:

The free data bonus is valid till Sunday 23.59pm every week. You don’t get the reward twice a week, so no need beating the target twice. Airtel didn’t say how long the offer lasts, but it looks like one that its not going over yet. You can’t roll over any unused data. That is to say, once it expires, it’s gone, no renewals.
