Hi guys!

For all people who want to know how to increase battery life!
Here we will put all solutions and information how to this.


1. Disable WiFi/Mobile Network - GPS - Bluetooth if you do not use them!
2. Set display brightness manually and reduce it (Settings Sound & Display Brightness)
3. Reduce screen timeout (Settings Sound & display Screen timeout)
4. Do not leave applications running and when you close them, close also from Recent Apps
5. Turn off Location system (Settings Location & Security Uncheck the boxes for Google Location Services and GPS Services)
6. Do not use Live Wallpapers, this will decrease your battery life!
7. Turn unnecessary hardware features off like 4G LTE network
8. Remove unused widgets from Home
9. Uninstall unused applications and keep your memory free
10. Have a Dual Core smartphone? Disable the last one! Attention. This will increase your battery life but will decrease your performance! (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...94&postcount=1)
11. Turn off auto-sync. This will increase your battery more.


Have you got other solutions? Tell us! And we will put it into first post.

regards,
fulmix

i dont think setting the brightness to auto will increase battery life. it will decrease more likely! setting the brightness manually would be a good idea than auto. since auto requires energy to change the brightness now and then.

anyway keep up!

Yeah. What you said is true. Auto means, the sensor has to work also, to detect the luminosity of external environment. This will call other processes and so forth...eventually using battery...I always use manual method..

Re: [Official Thread] Battery Life
Nice work, will help out a lot of people.
But why Official thread? Nothing official about it?

i think what he meant to say is official thread for battery life recommendations and discussion. let it be, this way, others may not create another battery performance thread. i think this has a nice touch by putting recommendations in OP.

had a similar thread in HD2 Android.
