Is 5G Draining Your Battery, How to reduce consumption on Xiaomi


Xiaomi has a wide range of devices that support 5G connectivityHowever, did you know that the fifth-generation network consumes a lot of energy? This could be a huge problem if it weren’t for MIUI keeping a tweak up its sleeve. It is an option of your Xiaomi that allows you to reduce the consumption of 5G to save battery.

Even if you have a mobile with more than 5000 mAh, keeping 5G connectivity active all the time can affect battery consumption. However, you do not need to change your network, as MIUI has a setting that could help.

Reduce the consumption of 5G in your Xiaomi

Since the fifth generation network consumes more energy in the mobile than 4G would. Therefore, Xiaomi implemented in its customization layer a mode to save battery with 5G activated. It is a quick and very simple adjustment, which only requires a few seconds. All you have to do is follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings > Battery.
  • Click on the Settings icon in the upper right corner.
  • Head over to the ‘ Battery Saver ‘ section.
  • Turn on the ‘ 5G Battery Saver ‘ switch.

In this section, Xiaomi is responsible for clarifying that this setting is responsible for limiting the consumption of 5G connectivity in certain scenariosSo, although it is not a complete decrease, it can be advantageous for the battery to last a little longer.

Similarly, Xiaomi mobiles also implement the standard battery saving mode and an extreme saving mode. The latter, for example, is responsible for restricting the functions with the highest energy consumption and only maintains the most basic functions.
