    Battery Tips for Android

    1. Toggle off High Accuracy GPS Mode, Bluetooth, NFC,
    Hotspot/Tethering. Toggle on only as needed. (Set GPS Mode to "Battery
    Saving" Mode).
    2. Display Brightness - Turn off Auto Brightness and Reduce Setting
    Bar to Minimum Acceptable to you.
    3. Sign out of any unused Google Services like G+, Google Now, Hangouts, etc.
    4. Disable Location Reporting and Location History.
    5. Beware of constantly syncing in background Apps and Bloatware like
    Facebook, Twitter, Weather Channel, Games, Google News/Weather,
    Non-Push Email, etc. Set Sync interval for every 1 hour or more and
    change settings to stop the syncing of data you don't need. Delete
    their Apps and use their Web Page if acceptable.
    6. Turn Off Hot Word "Hotword Detection" Always Listening Mode in
    Google Search if you don't use it.
    7. Turn Off Auto Camera/Photo Upload or at least set it for Upload on WIFI Only.
    8. Turn Off Vibrate on Touch for Display, Keyboard, etc.
    9. Turn Off Touch Sounds and Unlock Sounds.
    10. Turn Off Ambient Display/Active Display Notifications if you don't need it.
    11. Don't use a Live Wallpaper. Use a dark wallpaper if possible.
    12. Set Display Sleep Setting to 2 Minutes or Less.
    13. WIFI Settings - Advanced -
    a. Network Notification - Set as OFF.
    b. Scanning Always Available - Set as OFF.
    c. Keep WIFI on during Sleep - Set as ALWAYS if you regularly use
    WIFI. OK to keep WIFI on if you regularly use it.
    14. Turn Off Always Vibrate in Gmail/Email.
    15. Be careful of using too many Live Widgets and what/how often they sync.
    16. Set MS Exchange Sync at 30 Days or Less if you use it.
    17. Do NOT use a Task Killer App or Battery Saver App.
    18. Uninstall ALL Apps that you never use. If you haven't used an
    App in one month, uninstall it.
    19. Reboot your phone at least once a month.
    20. Wipe Cache Partition at least once a quarter or after every OS Update.
    21. Consider a Factory Data Reset with a manual re-sync, manual
    reinstall of all data and Apps after every major OS Letter Update.
    Make sure that all of your data is first backed up to Google and
    Dropbox, etc.

    "I SUFFER NO HARDSHIPS DOING THIS" - this means that i personally am
    giving up NOTHING with these tips. i'm not giving up any features.
    there are no tradeoffs for me. a tradeoff or a hardship would be to
    turn off PUSH email or use AIRPLANE mode during the day etc.

    you have to find your own balance and the tips list is a start but you
    must come to your own conclusion as to what's important. it's personal
    preference but these are not a big deal to me at all as they do not
    affect the function or operation of my phone. these tips do not
    deteriorate my experience.

    you don't HAVE TO do anything. the point is you if you want to
    MAXIMIZE battery life you can turn things off that you aren't using.
    it only makes sense. there is a FINITE amount of juice in ANY
    battery. you choose how you want to spend that juice. by default most
    of these devices have every feature set as ON whether you use them or
    not. i prefer to change the settings in my phone to only use those
    features that i personally use and need so i can maximize battery
    life. i don't leave all the lights and TVs on in my house 24/7 - i
    turn them on when i need them. i'm not giving anything up. my phone
    does everything exactly like i want it to. i'm not missing out on
    anything. it's no hardship for me. it's life. life is a delicate
    balance. it's up to you to find that balance.

    Battery Saver apps such as Juice Defender, DU Battery etc etc are ineffective at best, often actually using more power than they save. Some, and DU Battery is a prime example of this, are just plain evil, practically taking over the phone with constant nag ads and scary-sounding alerts. So-called battery repair apps are bogus. No app can 'repair' a damaged or worn-out battery.

    If you have any task killers, RAM memory optimizers/boosters, battery savers/repairers, cache cleaners, etc etc uninstall them immediately! None of that stuff is necessary. They are counterproductive, waste power, disrupt system processes and degrade performance.

    Just take a little time to configure your phone properly for your uses. Use common sense. Gekko's list above has a lot of good suggestions, but by no means do you need to use all of them.

    Not much to add except that these apps just take up space IMO. It's a personal preference thing.
