Play plants VS zombies 2. That app drains it in about an hour 100 to 0%

Any app you don't want or need running background data i would restrict the background data under settings-data usage then tap what is using data and you can tap restrict background data. Turn off all your syncs (use manual sync) unless you have to have them like email maybe and dont let it sync every 15 min maybe change it to once an hour or every 4 hours. I would use your internet for about an hour of surfing and see what you get after that. I probably lose about 10% battery per 45 min or so of constant web surfing on stock browser at 30-40% brightness. Also, turn off your auto brightness... it will never save you battery but use more. it will almost always be brighter then you need. Just adjust the brightness as you need it. I run mine at 20-25% brightness unless i need it higher.

hope this helps.
Thank you for your reply . I try to use the device for an hour and let you know how much battery drain. I did not understand, what should I do to change the synchronization of e-mail every 4 hours (I use gmail app). I went into the account - sync but does not make me choose how often to do the synchronization. Can you help me?

You might want to read this first before damaging your battery.

Well I can't help much with gmail since I don't use it. I looked in Gmail settings and I see no options for sync times either. I use stock email. You might not be able to change or specify that. Someone else that knows may be able to chime in.
