    Leave everything default mostly. Battery life is good enough you don't need to mess with things too much. I did flash to the elementalx kernel and enable ART though. Google now search has a wakelock that happens occasionally so I disabled that for a while. I'll disable it permanently if it happens again.

    There was a setting I didn't realize was on by default in WiFi settings. I turned off the ability to constantly scan for WiFi even when it's off. Just got a new m8 and the battery has been draining like crazy.

    Aside from the usual bloat, I also disabled the app that plants the Verizon bookmark folder in Chrome so it can now default to my bookmarks, disabled Google Now and +, and use an app called LTE On/Off so I can turn 4G off and run 3G only. I've tried changing to ART and am back on Dalvik to compare stuff. Don't see much difference between the two performance wise.

    I disable BlinkFeed, Bluetooth, vibration( for every notification possible I hate when my phone vibrate), NFC and GPS ( only turn it on when I need it) that's mostly it .. I get about 22 hours on my battery with one charge!

    That's on by default with every Android phone. It is what makes google's location service work when GPS is off.

    Sprint doesn't get very good service here.
