    So when I look at battery function under settings, it lists my screen as using 64% of battery. is there anyway to get this down?

    Pretty much the only way to do that is to not use your phone. /sarcasm

    Yup, low screen timeouts are one of the best ways.

    Set the screen brightness to as low as you can tolerate. Also, if you're accustomed to keeping the screen on when you're not using the phone, then set the screen timeout to a short amount of time.

    man i laughed at this comment.

    @OP the only way I know is to reduce the screen brightness and reduce the screen timeout period.

    Can also plug the phone in during extended use.

    B.Diddy is correct with these 2 suggestions. There's one more thing I could recommend. If you have a phone with a AMOLED display then use a wallpaper with a lot of black or very dark colors. When displaying black on an AMOLED display the black pixels actually turn off which can save on battery (it also results in "blacker" blacks). Unfortunately this doesn't work with LCD displays because they display black with the pixels on, which is also why blacks don't look as good on LCD displays.

    I don't know what kind of display your phone has. (And I'm too lazy to look it up at the moment.)

    No matter how long your screen timeout is, you can always turn the screen off as soon as you're finished using it. Just tap the power button.
