How to check the health status of your smartphone battery

The battery is one of the smartphone components that most brings headache to manufacturers and users (say Samsung). Sometimes it ends up too fast and it is difficult to distinguish whether it is a hardware or software problem. But with these simple tips, you can check your phone's battery health.

Access the Android test menu

This menu, among other things, allows you to access battery information. In the handset dialer, enter the following characters: * # * # 4636 # * # *. Wait a while and the menu below appears:

<p>Select the "Battery Information" option and parameters will be opened that will indicate the battery status. If you notice that the "Battery Status" "Good" parameter and "Battery Scale" are set to 100, then don't worry. Your battery has not lost its life. If the same scale is around 50 to 70%, then the component life is halved. </p><div class='code-block code-block-3' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

Another parameter that we can take into account the voltage. If it matches what the manufacturer indicates, then everything is in order. But if it's inferior, this could be the cause of crashes or an unusual slowdown in our smartphone.

Writing Note: This code does not work on all smartphones, so installing the CPU-Z app is also a good alternative to seeing your battery health. The app provides information about the battery as well as data from many other elements of your phone (from version build number to the speed of each processor core, temperature and sensors).

Focus on the loading and unloading process

Most current manufacturers equip their devices with lithium batteries that cannot be removed. This implies that it is impossible to make a visual inspection of it and we cannot detect if it is, for example, going into oxidation, sometimes rusting.

A way to check for smartphone battery malfunctions without the need for extra battery watching the evolution of the charging and discharging process. This is not about loading speed, but about percentage changes.

If during charging or discharging the percentage goes from 10% to 20%, the battery is probably no longer at the peak of its life. The "hops" of two-digit differences are indicative of problems. They may also show that your battery is out of balance or damaged. For questions about this, take a look at the article below, which shows how to calibrate your Android battery.

If the device has a removable battery, check the size of the component.

It is very simple to see if a battery is damaged at first glance. If it is swollen or has rust stains, it is time to send it for recycling and buy another one. If you are not sure of your condition, try rotating it like a pawn. If she turns, time to say goodbye to her.

Install a battery diagnostic app

There are applications that can help you know the state of your battery. A good example is the Ampere. Simple and quite complete, it shows the input amperage while you charge your smartphone. This way we can test various chargers and choose the best one for our phone. The app also lets you see how fast the battery is discharged.
