Even if you never use them, apps can be a significant drain on your battery power. So, it makes sense to get rid of the apps that you rarely — or never — use. Use App Manager to quickly uninstall any apps that you no longer want on your device. This will save you from going through all of the apps on your device to locate the ones you no longer want.

Weather, news, and social media widgets on your home screen are there to give you real-time updates. But did you know that these are also battery drainers? This is because they’re often vibrantly-colored and always syncing. If you don’t need a widget, you should press and drag it to the trashcan icon.
If you’re in a low-signal or a no-signal area, your phone doesn’t know what’s going on. If you let your phone function normally there, it will keep looking for a signal over and over again. To prevent your phone from draining its battery, flip it to Airplane Mode instead.
Over- and Under-Charging
Your phone’s battery functions the best if you keep it between 40% and 80% battery. Don’t let the phone’s charge drop below 40% — if you let the battery drop low and then recharge again to full, you’ll shorten the battery’s life overall. Additionally, don’t let your phone keep charging when it’s already full.
Vibrate mode is one of the worst settings for your battery life. Either turn your phone completely to silent or turn on the ringers. To change, head to “Settings” and “Sound,” and then uncheck “Vibrate for Calls.” If you navigate to “Language and keyboard,” you can also uncheck “Vibration feedback,” which is the vibration that happens when you type — another major battery drainer.
