  • Step 2: Navigate to About phone.


  • Step 3: Look for where you will see Build number, and click on it 3 times, after that you should see a notification


Saying “You are now a Developer!”
  • Step 4: Go-to the developer options by clicking the back button and then navigate to where you will see Background process limit.

Have you ever notice this before, that when ever you leave the mobile data on while charging, your phone do over heating? This used to happen to me before, especially when I'm downloading some movies from the internet, I just have to plug in my phone charger due to unstable light issue, but believe me this kill battery life, because my previous phone had battery issue and I believe this is one of the reason why the battery life is short, always try to keep your phone cellular data off, when charging the phone, this will make the charging process fast and save you less time to fully charge your phone battery.
