How to fix Moto G4 Plus battery problems

When users posted these problems on forums of Lenovo as well as other forums about tech and phones, there were several suggested methods to check for the causes along with solutions.

Here are some ways to deal with the issues of the battery for Motorola G4 Plus. These methods work for saving battery life in general too.

Moto G4 Plus Battery: Enable battery saver mode

Enable battery saver mode

The battery saver mode will reduce the screen brightness, limit the vibration motor, restrict email sync, location services, as well as background app data usage.

Turn off services when not needed

You don’t always use Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or location services, you should turn them off when they’re not needed to save battery life. The Moto G4 Plus comes with quick toggles for these functions that allow you to enable or disable them within seconds.

It may also help to adjust the dual-SIM settings. It's good that your phone can use 2 SIM cards but that eats up your battery too. So, if you don’t use the secondary SIM often, consider turning off the feature to save power for other tasks.

Moto G4 Plus Battery: monitor power-intensive apps

Deal with power-intensive apps

Open the battery page and you will see how the apps are consuming power from your phone battery. For example, Facebook and Messenger are two commonly power-consuming apps. So, if you are not a heavy user of these apps, you should consider removing them, or switching to the Lite version. Facebook Lite and Messenger Lite are designed to limit data use, which in turn helps reduce power consumption.

Adjust display settings

First, you can enable Adaptive brightness that automatically optimizes the brightness of the phone screen based on the ambient light, such as reducing the brightness in low-light environments and boosting it when outdoors.

Secondly, you can set the screen time out to the lowest level.

Thirdly, Motorola lets users select which incoming notifications won’t wake up the screen and you can find the feature in Moto Actions. While this feature is handy, you can maximize battery life by disabling it in the Moto app > Display.

Turn off automatic updates on the Play Store

The automatic update feature allows the update to be updated automatically when the phone is connected to the internet, but this consumes a lot of power. Disabling this feature will help you save not only battery life but also mobile data.

Switch to Android 7 Nougat

Android 7 offers an improved Doze mode that makes tweaks to extend your battery life. So you should upgrade your Moto G4 Plus to this Android version.
