    Pixel4A Battery Question

    by 07paddleyeti ·

    I have Google pixel 4a device and the battery life is really bad. Its mainly because the device itself came with a small battery and I am looking for ways to improve it.

    It is currently running Android OS 12 and on some forums, I have seen that downgrading to Android 10 helped significantly. I even don’t remember which OS it came with by default but based on gsm arena it seems like 10 was the default. So If i factory reset the phone will it go to Android 10? If that improves the battery life I want to keep it like that. The apps I use generally are WhatsApp, YouTube, Outlook client, and built-in Camera app. If I use Android 10 instead of 12 will there be a limitation with these apps? Android 10 instead of 12 will there be a limitation with these apps ?

      If some of those apps get updated by the author, they may stop working in the future if you are running an older version of Android. Then again, you might have a newer model phone when and if that does happen.

      Did you try turning off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi off the Pixel when not using those features? That could easily help slow the drain of your battery. How long have you owned that phone?

      “Rechargeable Battery Charger Case for Pixel 4a 5G” was my fix. There are versions of the 4a that are not 5G so you have to check if the battery case you find is compatible.

        Mophie Juice is a common brand that helps with that from rproffit’s suggestion. It should be available for under $100. I don’t know the exact cost or availability for the Pixel 4a phone.
