looking for the geo tag settings for the camera
Can not find this setting. Have already already turned off gps high accuracy, could that be why I can't find geo tag setting?

The absolutely biggest difference for me was to go into location settings and hit Google Location Reporting and turn off location reporting and history. Also turn off geo-tag for the camera, and locations setting on FB.

Did you look under Camera when it's open? I thought I saw it in there.

It can restrict data, do a greyscale mode and restricts processor speed. I also think I read it lowers screen refresh rate but I can't remember where I saw that. It also turns off the back light on the back and window/menu buttons.

There are different options you can enable in the menu.

Here's an article from CNET that explains power saving mode for those that do not know.

I turned off the print services and I have noticed a pretty big difference in my battery life.

Don't know if anyone else noticed this, but Weather Service apps that run in the background to show you current temp on Notification bar eat a LOT of battery. I disabled this on mine, and have noticed about 20% better battery.
