BlackBerry DTEK50, Pokémon GO and battery saving pointers

BlackBerry has said that its DTEK50 like any other smartphone capable of running Pokémon GO doesn’t do well when it comes to battery life and that’s why it has offered some battery saving tips.

BlackBerry DTEK50 reportedly hasn’t got a great battery life that will last all day for medium to heavy users and if you are one of those Pokémon GO players who can’t sleep without catching a few Pokémons every day, here are some of the tips that you can follow to save some battery juice:

  • First thing you can do is disable music and sound in the Pokémon GO app. While this is something that will be a hurdle in the overall Pokémon GO, but BlackBerry believes that it is a far better option than to lose battery.
  • Then go ahead and enable Battery Saver Mode for Pokémon GO. This will cause the screen to dim when you flip your phone upside down. Note that there are some glitches associated with this feature.
  • Next thing you can do is lower your screen brightness – or, if you’ve adaptive brightness enabled, turn it off. This can be done through Settings -> Device -> Display.
  • Then, turn off Augmented Reality. The next time you encounter a wild Pokémon or challenge a gym, tap the slider in the top right of the screen.
  • You can also activate Battery Saver through your device menu. Go to Settings -> Device -> Battery, then tap the top right corner and select “Battery Saver,” then toggle it on.
  • Finally, turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The former isn’t use in Pokémon GO, and the latter, while it’s occasionally handy for Google’s Location Services, is often just a drain on your power.
