General Tips/Steps to improve
  • Turn off All Syncing (use power widget to toggle as needed)
  • Check Settings >> Accounts & Sync >> [disable auto sync]
  • Set Screen timeout to 15sec
  • Set brightness to < 15%
  • Check Settings >> Power >> Turn on most or all the power saving features in this menu.
  • Remove (or reduce) number of widgets that need to poll data (includes clock/weather, stocks, social feeds, etc)
  • Turn off Bluetooth, GPS (when not needed, again use Power widget to toggle)
  • Enable Wifi calling (yes wifi calling saves battery especially in low 3/4G signal areas)
  • Use camera sparingly (by far biggest battery hog)
  • Install Battery monitor widget for charting battery usage.
  • Juicedefender or Green Power from appstore and let them help manage power
