Is the Moto Z battery running out fast? See how to solve

The Moto Z is a Motorola handset that was launched as flagship in 2016. But as time goes by, battery wear can undermine its performance. This is because the charge tends to last for a few hours, and the smartphone may end up leaving the user on hand before the end of a day's work.

To try to solve it, some tips let you identify which applications are draining the battery, and prevent features from running in the background. Another simple process is to adjust the screen brightness, which is one of the points that most consumes load, and automatically activate battery saving when it is below 15%, so you do not need to worry. To learn how to make these adjustments, just follow the step by step below.
