Guide to turn on game battery booster for selected games in HTC Bolt

HTC Bolt was launched in 2016 on Sprint’s network with 3X20 MHz Carrier Aggregation supported on Qualcomm’s X10 LTE modem.  The HTC Bolt has a large 5.5-inch screen and its design is very derivative of the HTC 10, down to the beveled edge on the back, and even with the same color finishes: Gunmetal and Glacial Silver. The Bolt is HTC’s first fully submersible smartphone built with an aluminum body with an IP57 rating. Also known as HTC Evo in UK and other countries it was the first mobile to run Android 7.0 Nought out of the box.

Though everything works fine but when playing pokies for long hours the mobile gets warmer and drains the battery fast. When measured by experts the overall system performance, the Bolt scores 72,353, roughly half as much as the Snapdragon 821-powered Google Pixel XL (140,121). Given the price of the phone and the resolution of the display, it’s perplexing that the Bolt isn’t at least running a Snapdragon 820, like the HTC 10.

Battery life is slightly below average. The Bolt clocked 4 hours, 39 minutes of runtime when streaming full-screen video over LTE at maximum brightness. That’s two hours shy of the Pixel XL (6 hours, 43 minutes) and the HTC 10 (6 hours, 4 minutes). The Bolt supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, which can charge the phone to full in about 90 minutes.

You can use the power management features in HTC Bolt

  • Turn Power saver mode and Extreme power saver mode on in Settings.
  • Monitoring your battery usage helps identify what’s using the most power so you can choose what to do about it
  • Turn off wireless connections such as mobile data, Wi‍-Fi, or Bluetooth when not in use.
  • Turn GPS on only when a precise location is needed, such as while using navigation or location-based apps.
  • Turn on Airplane mode when you don’t need any wireless connections and you don’t want to receive calls or messages.
  • Lowering the brightness, letting the display sleep when not in use, and keeping it simple helps save battery power. Use automatic brightness which is the default, or manually lower the brightness.
  • Set the screen timeout to a shorter time.
  • Don’t use a live wallpaper for your Home screen. Animation effects are nice to show off to other people but they drain your battery.Changing your wallpaper to a plain, black background can also help a little. The less color is displayed, the less battery is used.

Game Booster App

Here are some of the things you can do when using the game booster or Boost + app.

Game Booster App
  • Booster app monitors your phone storage space and memory usage.
  • Delete cache, app installers, and temporary files on your phone.
  • Optimize system resources to extend battery life while you’re playing your favorite games.

The Smart Boost feature allows the Boost+ app to automatically free up memory space on your phone.

From the Home screen, tap settings, and then find and tap Boost+.

Tap settings wheel, and then select or clear the Smart boost option.

When prompted to set up the system permission for Boost+, tap Continue > Boost+

Tap the Permit usage access On/Off switch.

Adding apps to the Smart Boost exception list

You can choose to set the Boost+ app to skip some apps when it runs its Smart Boost checks.

From the Home screen, tap the dots, and then find and tap Boost+.

Tap Smart boost.

Tap three dots > Manage skipped apps.

Tap Add or plus sign, and then select the apps to skip.

Tap Add.

Turning on Game battery booster for selected games

When you have added an app to the Game battery booster list, your phone automatically optimizes system resources while you’re playing it. This helps extend your phone’s battery life. Note that this feature may not be available on all phones.

  • From the Home screen, tap those nine dots, and then find and tap Boost+.
  • Tap Game battery booster.
  • To add a game to the list, tap  Add or plus sign, and then select one or more apps to include.
  • Tap Add.
  • On the Game battery booster screen, tap the On/Off switch next to an app to turn it on.
  • When prompted, you can choose to open the app and check whether the optimized result fits your viewing preference.

To remove an app from the list, tap three dots or more options button > Remove. Select one or more apps, and then tap Remove.

Battery optimization for apps

When you have connections such as Wi‍-Fi on while the phone is in sleep mode, some apps may still continue to use the battery. Starting from Android 6.0, battery optimization is enabled for all apps by default which helps prolong battery standby time when you’re not using the phone.

The phone needs to be sitting idle for an extended period of time before battery optimization takes effect.

  • If there are apps that you don’t want battery optimization enabled, you can turn the feature off in those apps.
  • From the Home screen, tap those dots , and then find and tap Settings.
  • Tap Power.
  • Tap Battery optimization.
  • Tap Not optimized > All apps to see the complete list of apps.
  • To turn off battery optimization in an app, tap the app name, and then tap Don’t optimize > Done.
  • Repeat this process to turn off optimization in other apps.
  • To filter the list and see which apps have battery optimization disabled, tap All apps > Not optimized.

Battery optimization helps extend battery standby time.  Install the latest software and application updates. Updates sometimes include battery performance improvements.

Many apps run processes or sync data in the background even when you’re not using them. If there are apps that you don’t need anymore, uninstall them.

If an app came preloaded and can’t be uninstalled, disabling the app can still prevent it from continuously running or syncing data.

Background data and sync can use a lot of battery power if you have many apps syncing data in the background. It’s recommended not to let apps sync data too often. Determine which apps can be set with longer sync times, or sync manually.

In Settings, tap Accounts & sync and check what types of data are being synced in your online accounts. When the battery is starting to run low, temporarily disable syncing some data.

Pokies games to play with your HTC mobile

If you have many email accounts, consider prolonging the sync time of some accounts.

In the Mail app, select an account, tap more options or the three dots > Settings > Sync, Send & Receive, and then adjust the settings under Sync schedule.

When you’re not traveling from one place to another, sync weather updates of only your current location, rather than in all of your named cities. Open the Weather app, and then tap the three dots or more options to edit and remove unneeded cities.

Some widgets constantly sync data. Consider removing the ones that are not important from your Home screen. In Play Store, tap those three parallel > Settings, and then clear Add icon to Home screen to avoid automatically adding Home screen app shortcuts whenever you’ve installed new apps. Also tap Auto-update apps > Do not auto-update apps if you’re fine with updating apps from Play Store manually.

Also to squeeze in a little bit more battery power, try to tone down the ringtone and media volume. You can minimize the use of vibration or sound feedback. In Settings, tap Sound & notification and choose which ones you don’t need and can disable or check your apps’ settings as you may find more options to optimize the battery.

Now if you own HTC mobile then you can use HTC Boost game app to enhance your gaming experience.
