Yeah the built in 'Power Saver [1]' and 'Extreme Power Saver [2]' apps kill background sync/WiFi/data when the screen is off [1] and when the app is activated [2].

I use [1] as standard and it's really good for battery life, usually lasting me 2-3 days with minimal use or 1 day with heavy use. The sync is only killed when the screen is off so you receive notifications all at once when you check your phone so you're in control. As part of this, you can set [2] to activate at a particular % of remaining battery to further conserve power.

I'm also using Nova Launcher Prime as its much smoother and cleaner than BlinkFeed and probably uses less resources.
