In the Global Mobile Internet Conference held recently in Beijing the top brass of Cyanogen discussed the past and the future of the company, and it was not very surprising that the company shall snap ties with the company OnePlus. Cyanogen were looking out for new vendors in the hardware section to bring the customary Android OS to market. Steve Kondik of Cyanogen opined that the two companies Cyanogen and OnePlus had different goals for the software and this was the cause of conflict as both pursued separately for the goals, thus stepping on each other’s toes, while launching OnePlus One in India last year.

No longer together : Cyanogen and OnePlus

Cyanogen had already entered into an exclusive deal signed with Micromax the low cost smartphone manufacturer of India who had banned the sale of OnePlus handsets operated by the custom OS. Whereas the other top official of Cyanogen, Kirt McMaster was apparently not very pleased with the way the companies separated. He expressed his opinion that OnePlus developed their brand on the basis of Cyanogen and OnePlus would not have been able to sell many handsets without the appeal.

The company Cyanogen is already working with new partners for their share in the smartphone market share. The Chinese manufacturer is already in action and is scouting for the new partners in their venture. Apparently Cyanogen is now keen on tapping the international market and is looking for one who can boost the production to capture the international market quicker.OnePlus however, has Oxygen OS to fill the gap created by the departing Cyanogen OS. Though for all those devices running on Cyanogen OS, the company Cyanogen shall continue to offer support.

Some of the users have been claiming about the average battery backup of this Smartphone .So here we are for you and we have specified some workarounds which can help you optimise the battery life of your Smartphone.

1. Internet browsing on Android Smartphone consumes a tremendous amount of your battery. Especially the applications which run in back ground take your internet connection silently and contribute in the battery drainage of Your elanza 2. So, it is recommended to kill unwanted background applications via some task killer or manually. This will decrease the drainage of your battery very effectively.

2. Optimise your connectivity options after every use. Turn off you’re your Wi-FI, Bluetooth and other connectivity options when not in use. These also consume a good share of your battery life.

3. Most of the social applications installed on Android have got sync option available which is usually set to auto. Turn off auto sync manually so that your internet data plan as well as battery is saved.

4. Keep your Elanza 2 screen brightness set to minimum. The high lighting eats up the battery of your Smartphone very fast.

5. Set your Screen time out minimum which is 15 seconds.

6. Avoid showing off live wallpaper as they keep running continuously and keep consuming battery in unproductive fashion.

6. Instead of installing different battery saving software’s, just install a simple ad free task killer and use it in application optimisation.

However if we look at the other face of this coin, it is like imprisoning your way of using Smartphone with the fear of battery loss. For the people who can bear this amount of compromising can just buy a good power bank from market and use it time to time. Or they can get an additional original battery from Micromax official store and enjoy stress free Smartphone experience.
