Remember old days of Android devices with just one sim card slot and observe how long the battery last with one active carrier network service. You will get to understand that, indeed having 2 sim card carrier network active at a time also drains your android battery faster.
We also observed that, having this two sim cards active also results to heated android devices.
You might wonder why and how two sim cards active can cause battery drainage and also heat up android devices. We shall discuss little on that!

Most glo and 9mobile users can attest to the fact that having just one glo or 9mobile active heats up phone, mostly when there is low network coverage in that particular area.

This is as a result of continuous search for network and obviously in the process of searching for available network requires battery (power) causing device to heat up and battery drains faster.

Having two SIM cards means burning more battery power. Main reason why these mobile phones are needed to be charged almost regularly.

Here are some tips we confirmed working and legit just after taking some tests.

  1. For those who love playing offline games, do ensure to activate airplane mode. This helps to keep the device running at a more stable state and for sure also saves battery life.
  2. For those who already have 2 active sim cards present on their Android device, do ensure to disable one of two active sim cards not currently in use to safe battery life and to keep your device temperature to normal.
