    Does your device sit idle a lot?

    I think the best way to save battery (I found) is:

    - Disable/Remove ALL un-used apps;
    - Change sync settings to when open (I find using Snapdragon BatteryGuru is very effective)
    - Use AutoMateIt/Tasker to make events trigger power saving actions.
    - Minimise Widgets being used, as these require data to refresh
    - If in poor reception, put phone into Airplane Mode (also when you're sleeping you do not really want calls anyway)

    I achieve all of this with the following:

    1- 2 Rules on AutoMateIt; when battery is less than 30% disable: sync, WiFi, 3/4G, set screen to 25% brightness, with 1 minute timeout and; If WiFi is idle/not connected, disable with a delay of 5 minutes.

    2- Snapdragon on, with all programs set to sync when opened, not in background. Although some exceptions are made; Weather, Traffic and E-Mail.

    3- I disable the stock SMS and use Hangouts (or vice versa), disable Mail and use G-Mail, disable all inbuilt notes, task and internet as we often use our own defaults etc.

    All in all after doing this, I now can use my phone almost continually from 05:00am to 09:00pm and have 30-40% left.

    These simple things help extend battery life considerable- although having apps like this run in the background can be just as draining.

    Try disabling background data when you aren't using you data connection.

    Turn off Toolbox, Multi window, ok google detection, and other nonsense settings on your device.

    Did your battery use suddenly start draining madly? Mine did that last year and I won't go into everything I did to help with battery use, but I will say nothing I tried helped. And I thoroughly researched the issue on the internet. What I finally had to do and the only thing that helped was doing a factory reset and system cache clear, which you can find out how to do by googling it. I suspected it was a bad app after an update that was causing the drain, but after resetting the phone and reinstalling the apps I never experienced the problem again. So I had to rule out an app and still have no idea what caused the problem.

    Do you use the built-in power saver while using the snapdragon batteryguru because I just installed that app and don't know if they will conflict with each other?

    I'm also stock and unrooted,so I use greenify to hibernate all my apps,will this also be counterproductive?
