Google Pixel series smartphones have now become a flagship offering from the technology giant in the last few years, and similar to many other brands, the devices have been facing issues with battery life from time to time. However, with the Pixel series being premium smartphones, Google has been trying to optimize the battery performance and introduce features that may be unique to its offerings.
As the usage of smartphones keeps on increasing and new technologies are getting introduced regularly, the battery life on the device takes a hit. To optimize the battery level up to a certain extent, the Google Pixel phones come with a feature called Adaptive Connectivity.
The feature basically monitors and learns from the users’ network usage and automatically switches from 5G to 4G when it recognizes what the user is doing and doesn’t need the extra bandwidth available to the more intense 5G. It bumps the network back to 5G when extra speed is needed.
