13. Stop / Uninstall Battery Consuming Apps

If you are having 100s of unknown apps on your phone then I’m pretty sure at least 5 of them will be consuming battery life for almost nothing. You can use your “Application” settings to find out the culprit and disable/uninstall them.

14. Reduce/Remove Widgets

How many of you have those fancy animated widgets on your phone? When was the last time you actually checked or used them? I’m not a big fan of weather, because it is really easy to predict the weather in my location. So I disabled the weather widget and it helped me to save some battery life.

15. Avoid Live Wallpapers/Screensavers

16. Use Ad-Free Apps

The difference between a free app and a paid app is advertisements. We often end up paying for apps because we want to eliminate those advertisements. Eliminating them will also help you to have a good battery life. But if you don’t have the habit of buying apps, then you can disable your internet connection while accessing those ad-appearing apps.

17. Disable Vibration & Sound

I love vibration mode, it’s a saviour when we keep our phone in silent mode. But if your phone’s battery life is low, disable all those vibrations and sounds.

21. Rooting Your Phone

I haven’t really rooted any of my primary phones but tried it on my friend’s phone. I could see some minor changes in battery life but not sure whether it is worth or not. I’m not encouraging you to root your phone but if you are OK with it then you can experiment with it. Remember rooting your Android phone has its pros and cons.

22. Monitor Battery Usage

Always monitor your battery usage, see which section of your phone consumes huge amount of battery life. Try to tweak that part. Suppose if “Screen” is consuming 75% of your battery life then you can reduce the screen’s brightness and see the changes. Try to experiment with various such sections.
