How to Increase Battery Life of your Android Phone

A smartphone is a mobile phone with an advanced mobile operating system which combines features of a personal computer operating system with other features useful for mobile or handheld use. They typically combine the features of a cell phone with those of other popular mobile devices, such as personal digital assistant (PDA), media player and GPS navigation unit. Most smartphones can access the Internet, have a touchscreen user interface, can run third-party apps, music players and are camera phones.

But with all these brilliant features in smartphones, the battery life of it has always been an issue.

In this blog I will tell you how to increase the battery life of your Android Phones.

1. See what's consuming the battery:

The first thing you should do is,
Go to Setting > Battery and check what applications are using your phone's battery. If you see any application/feature that is not in use, it is recommended turn that feature off or uninstall the application.

2. Turn off the unnecessary home screen widgets and live wallpapers:

Do you know even increasing the number of widgets on your home screen decreases the battery time? Hence, you should remove all the unwanted widgets to save the battery.
Also, the live wallpapers. Live wallpapers do consume a lot of battery. They do look cool but are not suggested to use if you want to improve the battery life of your phone.

3. Turn off the Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth etc:

Now, almost all the smart phones have Wi-Fi, Data Connection, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth etc in them. It is recommended that only turn these features on when required. If not turned off, they use battery in the background which is not good.

4. Reduce E-mail, Twitter, and Facebook polling:

Set your various messaging apps to "manual" for the polling or refresh frequency, just as a test, and you'll instantly extend your device's battery life by a significant amount. Once you see what a difference that makes, try re-enabling just the most important ones, and possibly reducing their polling frequency in the process.

5. Power Saving Mode:

Many latest smartphone have a 'Power Saving' feature in them. If you want an instant increase in battery life, turn the power saving mode on. 

6. Reducing the brightness of Screen:

High brightness really does consumes much more battery than one thinks. Hence it is recommended to use low brightness level when you want to save your battery life.

7. Closing Apps running in the background: 

Apps running in the background are also a major battery consumer. Close the Apps properly after the use. You might not always know which app is running in the background.
To know, Go to Setting > Apps and then swipe to left. You'll see the background apps. Close the ones which aren't in use.

8. Update your Apps:

Updating all the apps also increases the battery time slightly as well. Even if you configured the phone for automatic updates, some apps still require that you manually install updates. Check for app updates in Google Play by hitting the menu key and going to My Apps.

9. Signal Strength:

Low signal strength of your mobile network also does consume the battery. Save your battery by putting your phone on flight mode when calls, messaging and internet services are not required.

10. Buying a battery case or larger extended battery:

Battery cases combine a hardware enclosure, which protects your phone, with an extended battery that can double your phone's endurance. You can find models compatible with popular Android phones from a variety of manufacturers, such as the Mophie Juice Pack and Incipio Offgrid Battery Backup Case (both for the Samsung Galaxy S4).

So these were some easy methods to increase the battery life of your phone. Hope they works for you.

Hack Facebook Account via Phishing (The Easiest Method)

Facebook was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg and his friends. Since it's launch, it started gaining popularity and now we all know how famous it is. Some do call it the heart of social media.

In this blog I am going to teach you how to hack Facebook accounts by using phishing.

Note: This blog is for educational purpose only. I am not responsible for your actions.


Before we start, we must know what Phishing really is. Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as user names, emails and password etc. by using a fake bait. 
It is not the only way to get someone's information, but it is by far the most easiest one.

So basically we will create a fake login site which looks exact like original Facebook. And then you have to send it to friends and ask them to open it. Once they put their log in details in the site, you'll get them. Where and how? Find it yourself in the steps below.


Now I'll guide you through the steps one by one in the easiest way. 


First of all download the file from here or 
What are these files? In simple words it is fake Facebook login page which looks exact like the original one.


Now you need to make an account on web host. Again in simple words, it is account where you'll receive all the details about the person you want to hack. There are many sites for it. I'll recommend you 000webhost. It is simple and easy to operate.

To make an account click here or

Something like this will open:

It's better that you start with second option 'I will choose your free domain'.
Write any thing of your choice. Like games4all  or footballfever etc etc. Keep it simple. What is this? It is the site that you'll be sending your friends which will open the fake login page.

Provide all the other necessary stuffs and click "create my account".


Open your mail and verify your account.


STEP 5:       

Now the main process starts. Find 'Go to CPanel' next to your domain and open it.

Something like this will open. Note your username. The password is same as you used to log in.


Scroll down and find 'File Manager' under Files and click it

Now it might or might not ask for user name and password. If not then good enough. If yes then provide the user name and password. (read previous step for knowing your username and password)


Window like below will open. Click 'public html' as highlighted below.


Now find 'Upload' between New file and Java Upload. Click the 'Upload' icon.

After clicking upload a window will open which will ask you to choose file. Click Choose File under Archives. Upload the same file you downloaded in the Step 1. 


After choosing, click the tick button on above it. Let the file upload. And once it upload fake login page is created. Tick again and then click back button.
It will look like this now

STEP 10:

Now send the domain/link you created earlier to your friends. I will prefer you to first try it yourself. Open the link/domain. Fake facebook login page will open. Note: Only you know it's fake. It look same as original. Once you type your login details and log in, it will come to your account. Check next step to see how to get the login details.
Where will the link open? It can open to any music/game site.

STEP 11:

How to check the login details of your friends? Go to public html again as in STEP 7. You'll see 'log.txt'
Click view in front of it as shown below

A window like this will open. Email and password are the details of user.

NOTE: It's not possible to send the domain via Facebook. You'll have to hide the URL for it. Use any URL hider. An example is below 

So this is how we can get someone's Facebook log in detail via phishing. I tried to guide you in the easiest way. If you're having difficulty at any step then leave a comment. Thanks.
