[Q] Battery saving settings question
I have a note 2 that is pretty light on battery usage but want to make sure I get all I can out of a charge. I have searched and read many different forum posts and articles about what to turn on and what to turn off on various different android versions. Some of these were dated material (like over 9 months old) and some more recent. Even the similar threads shown when starting this refers to posts from back in 2010-early 2013
I am looking for the current best practice for battery life and what to enable/disable.
For my purposes I have little use for google now. I like the ability to set quick reminders but since I work from home I have no need for driving tips.
My current settings are as follows:
gps & verizon location enabled
google wifi & mobile network disabled
wifi advanced options:
keep wifi on during sleep always
always allow scanning disabled
google location settings
location reporting on
location history on
hotword detection disabled
Enabling the google wifi & mobile option seems to be the biggest factor on battery life for me. However, with it disabled I have read that some of the google now and weather apps don't work as well.
Can anyone make any further suggestions?
