Recently, Google Pixel 3XL is a hit product on the market with many fans and good reviews. It has a great user experience and great price/performance ratio. Pixel 3XL is suitable for users of all ages to meet different demands in office, home or entertainment. Let's take a look at their overall parameters. Pixel 3/3XL is based on Qualcomm snapdragon 845 platform with 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. Pixel 3/3XL has 2915mAh and 3430mAh capacity batteries respectively, and supports 18W quick charge and up to 10W wireless charging.

Whether using Android or iOS, batteries are to electronic devices what water and food are to human beings. Battery power is the source of the energy that starts everything. The first-generation Pixel XL was known for its 3000mAh large battery, and today's Android flagship phones start from 3500mAh. For example, Huawei's P20-Pro has 4000 mAh battery, while Galaxy S9+ has 3500mAh battery. In comparison, the battery capacity of Pixel 3/3XL pales. Luckily, Android's openness gives us more freedom to operate our devices, and opens up more possibilities for improving Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL's battery life.

Here are three ways to extend the battery life of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL: authority management, system setup, and choosing the best power bank for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL.

3 Ways to Extend the Battery Life of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL

  1. Permission Management of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL

You've just bought a new Pixel 3 or Pixel 3XL and you've downloaded a ton of apps, then many of those apps start asking for various permissions. As users, think twice: does a map app really need to read your text messages? Why would an app that doesn't require a sound input request to access your microphone? Faced with these unreasonable permission applications, we should resolutely reject them, because too many permissions will allow some applications to occupy the background for a long time.

 

  1. System Settings for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL

In addition to eliminating redundant power consumption through authority management, we can also proactively make some Settings tweaks to extend the battery life of Pixel 3/3XL. We can reduce the positioning accuracy (using the Internet to locate rather than GPS), to reduce the screen brightness or reduce the bright screen time and open low-power-mode.

 For example, once you open the low power mode, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL systems tend to save electricity and longer battery life by a series of measures, including reducing the screen brightness, clearing background, reducing the CPU frequency and so on.

  1. Choose the Best Power Bank for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL

We often heard stories of cell phone batteries exploding, and many of the accidents are caused by unqualified third-party accessories, which lack an automatic cut-off or circuit protection. Therefore, when choosing charging accessories, we should not blindly covet the low price ones. Some reliable third-party accessories brands, such as Zendure, are not very expensive, but have high safety guarantee. Besides, safety is the most important feature.

When choosing a portable charger, we have several factors to consider. Reliable safety protections come first, and its capacity comes second. Zendure is a specialist in charging accessories of high reputation, trusted by more than 100k fans worldwide. And A8PD has the highest capacity in Zendure’s power bank series. With its 26,8000 mAh large battery, you could charge your Pixel 3 or Pixel 3XL repeatedly. Next time you’re going for a long trip, you’ll realize its practicality.

A8PD has the following highlights that make it so different from other ordinary power banks:

  • Pass-Through charging: Charge A8PD while it charges 4 devices simultaneously, which is a really useful feature when there is no enough sockets and plugs.
  • 30W USB-C charge/recharge: Thanks to its 30W power delivery, A8PD can charge almost all kinds of devices like iPhones, Android phones, and laptops at a super-fast speed. For more, you could check out A8PD on com andZendure official website.

A cheap and unofficial power bank is not user-friendly, even if there is no safety problem apparently happening. Its heating and power consumption could have underlying problems. Instead, it's better to start with a good portable charger. You've spent so much money on Pixel 3 or Pixel 3XL, just purchase a good charging accessory for it, too.
