Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: My battery discharges fast. I followed all the steps outlined above but my Google Pixel phone still won’t last a day. How can I address this quick discharge of battery?
A: The Battery Saver Mode on Google Pixel is not your ticket to an unlimited supply of battery power. Even if you’ve turned on the feature on your phone, battery longevity is still mainly attributed to your device’s usage. Avoid activities that drain your battery fast. When not needed, turn off your radio devices. Constant connection to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile data drains your phone’s battery. Playing graphics-intensive and high-processing power games and apps eat a lot of battery – close them if you want to extend your battery’s juice. The phone’s camera also requires high power – keep the usage at a minimum if you are running low on battery.

Q: Is there a way for me to know the length of time to charge my Google Pixel?
A: Google Pixel has a feature that lets you know the length of time when your phone is fully charged. To do that, plug in your device to a charger and wait for it to analyze the charging data. After a minute or two, go to Settings then open the Battery option to see how long until your phone is fully charged.

Q: I followed all the tips in this article. I closed all apps – in fact, I uninstalled all apps that can be installed. Still, my battery drains too fast. Is there any fix for this?
A: Before doing other actions, update your Google Pixel to the latest version and check if the problem persists. An updated operating system corrects any issues from the previous version. If the battery still drains fast after the update, then the problem could either with the battery or with your phone. Bring your device to an authorized repair center for proper checking and assessment.

Q: Does a reset my Google Pixel fix any issues with my battery?
A: A factory data reset will restore your phone back to its original state when it came out of the factory. Battery issues due to software and apps may be fixed using this device. Just make sure that you do precautionary measures of backing up your data prior reset.
