2. Enable Intelligent Power Mode

Just like the Huawei P8, the battery life of the Honor 7 can be easily tense using the phone's own functions. To access the energy management settings and extend the battery life, go to Parameters> Energy saving.

From this menu, you will have the choice between three energy plans: Performance (normal), Intelligent and Ultra energy saving. Even for everyday use, it's worth configuring the Smart Mode settings as they will allow you to individually select which items on your phone can use the power of your smartphone and when they can use it.

The Ultra Energy Saving mode can be very useful in moments of despair. It only allows the reception and sending of calls and SMS messages and stops all other applications drastically reducing the expenditure of energy.

The Protected Applications menu, which is also found in the Honor 7 settings, gives you the ability to identify the nergivorous apps that are hidden on your phone. Many applications continue to use the battery of the smartphone even when the phone is in sleep mode.

4. Use the fingerprint reader effectively

The Honor 7's fingerprint reader is mainly used to unlock the phone, but it can also act as a trigger for a variety of functions. To allow this, you just have to go to the Settings> Fingerprint ID. In this menu, you can decide what other actions you want to take through the fingerprint reader.

The problem is easily resolved by activating the One-Hand Navigation Interface option in the settings. You can then decrease the size of the screen or move the keyboard to one side.
