Top 7 Ways to Improve your Android Battery Life

Battery life is unfortunately one of the things that hasn’t radically evolved along with the rest of smartphone technology. We are still limited in both capacity and space, and using the phone to its full potential will quickly deplete a full charge. Add to this the fact that the battery will also wear out by itself and hold less charge as time goes on, and you have a really bad combination on your hands. However, there’s always something you can do to improve battery life and squeeze some extra juice that just might make a difference, so if you’re struggling with battery life, maybe these tips will help you in the long run.
Deep Sleep Battery Saver can auto-manage most of below settings. 

1. Use Only 2G Networks

How to root Nexus 4

Unlocking The Bootloader And Obtaining Root

This part of the tutorial is geared towards Windows users. The MAC instructions are very similar, from what I understand. Install the package the same way. All ADB/Fastboot commands may need to start with "adb-mac" (no quotes) rather than "adb" (no quotes). Due to the vast amount of Linux distros available; instructions will vary for your device. OnceADB/Fastboot are set up all command will begin with "./adb" (no quotes) rather than "adb" (no quotes). Once ADB/Fastboot are set up; this guide is relevant to everyone.

Time required: 20-40 minutes.

Use Wi-Fi instead of 3G to save Android battery life

If you have unlimited data over 3G so that cost is no option, which is more power efficient? Using the WiFi or 3G connection for data usage? Extending battery life being the goal (ignore LTE for now)

As Matthew Read mentions, the hardware, your location, and the other fiddly bits about actual communication are important to the discussion. But, you also need to consider what you're doing with the phone.

Are you retrieving largish amounts of data often? If so, Wifi may be less drain on the battery by letting you finish sooner - remember the screen drains power while you're waiting for 3G to finish what

Adjust Auto-Sync to save power juice

You can configure synchronization options for any of your apps. You can also configure what kinds of data you synchronize for each account. Some apps, such as Gmail and Facebook, Calendar, have separate synchronization settings that provide more fine-grained control. In such cases, the settings you select at the account level are still valid.

For some accounts, syncing is two-directional; changes that you make to the information on your device are made to the copy of that information on the web. Your Google Account works this way. Other accounts support only one-way sync: the information on your mobile device is read-only.

To view the Accounts & sync settings screen described here:
  1. From a Home or All Apps screen, touch the Settings icon .
  2. Under Personal, touch Accounts & sync.
Some apps also have their own settings related to syncing. For example, to control message syncing in the Gmail app, touch Menu icon> Label settings > Sync messages.

Turn down screen brightness to save battery power in Android

Today we’re going to take a look at how to adjust your screen’s brightness level. Adjusting your screen brightness is one of the most basic Android display settings you’ll find and allows you to compensate for the lack of or over abundance of, surrounding light. Most Android devices will already be set to automatically adjust your screen brightness depending on how much light your Android device’s light sensor detects, but since everyone is different, you may not want your have your brightness dimmed at a particular time, thus making it important to know how to manually adjust it.

Android Battery Saver Tips

Battery usage on all so called “smart phones” is almost universally woeful. Big high-res colour screens, fast processors, sound, wifi and 3g networking all consume gobs of battery power.

Here are some battery saving tips for Android phones. I’m going on a long flight in a few days time so I’ll be trying these tips out before I go!
  • Go into Settings->About phone->”Battery use” to see what’s chewing up your battery. You can use our app to detect battery draining apps as well as see detail battery statistics
  • Turn off haptic feedback. That’s vibration alerts when you press your screen. Turn off vibration as a notification too.

Smart RAM Booster

Most of Android devices bundle with limited memory. Android task manager will selectively kill low priority tasks in order to reserve memory to higher priority task. That's not always run at an appropriate time, causing low responsive apps, lagging, especially when you launch a new app after heavily browsing web pages. It causes a worse experience.

How RAM Booster works

RAM Booster is designed to overcome these issues by selectively kill less important apps that are running in the background but consumes considerable device's memory. The most beautiful part of this app is a small, configurable widget that places on top of any app and one-click to RAM boost.
