Thumbs up Ultimate set of battery saving tips!

Alright I know this may be a little redundant giving all of the various topics on this, but I thought it would be wise to have a cohesive thread for all tips. If you can, post whatever you do to save battery. To keep this a little more organized, here is what should be seen:

Greenify: Tell us what you Greenify
Brightness: Tell us your brightness settings.
Sync: What do you sync? Feel free to go into detail
Usage: Light, Medium, or Heavy? Also feel free to go into detail.
Screen-on time: What is your typical screen on time?
Lastly, feel free to post any tips! Please try to participate and I will update this post with the top battery saving tips!

My stats are as shown:

Greenify: A few of my apps, and youtube would be the only system-type app.
Brightness: I use Lux with the ascending settings on
Sync: I always have sync off unless my phone is charging.
Usage: I am more of a moderate user. using it somewhat heavy, but not often.
Screen-on time: My screen-on time varies, but generally is around 3 Hrs 45 Minutes by about 15%

Greenify:everything except viper4android
Brightness:halfbar except when sunlight
Sync:whatsapp mail gmail and contacts
Usage:heavy user
Screen:22hrs usage with 7:30 or 8 screen

Tips:
I have 3g most of the day(no LTE in my country)
The only game i play is Day of the tentacle on SCUMMVM

If you re using just whatsapp you can switch to 2g(normally i dont but its a good idea)
Install betterbatterystats and always check for wakelocks
