How to check an Android phone’s battery health

Most people consider battery life, but what about battery health? This is crucial for your phone’s continued usability. Android devices lack a super-easy method to check this, in contrast to the iPhone.

What exactly is a healthy battery? The length of time a battery will hold a charge is typically referred to as “battery life.” The battery’s health reveals how much it is deteriorating. Poor battery health results in worse performance, faster discharge, warmer operation, etc.

How to assess the health of an Android phone’s battery will demonstrate some easy methods for monitoring the condition of your phone’s battery in this article.

One Android manufacturer, Samsung, provides a way to verify the condition of your battery. It does need an app, but it’s probably the app you currently have on your phone. You can get the Samsung Members app from the Play Store if you don’t already have it.

You will now see some battery-related information. The battery’s condition is shown by the “Life” reading. Either “Good,” “Normal,” or “Weak” will apply.

Other Techniques to Assess Battery Health

There is one approach you can attempt if you don’t own a Samsung Galaxy handset that doesn’t involve outside apps. This technique makes use of Android’s secret diagnostic menu, which is accessed by dialling a series of numbers. Nevertheless, not all devices and mobile networks support these codes.

Enter *#*#4636#*#* into the phone app. By doing so, a “Testing” menu that might have a “Battery information” part will be opened.

If it still doesn’t work, you’ll probably need to utilise a third-party programme. Thankfully, AccuBattery, an excellent software from the Play Market, is available for this.

Sadly, you won’t receive responses straight away. The previous data on your battery is not accessible to AccuBattery. Once you install it, it will begin collecting data. You can get a reading for the battery after a few charge/discharge cycles.
