- Manage your connection options well. Only use WiFi and Bluetooth when you absolutely need to. These can be turned off in the “Manage Connections” menu.
- Select notification alerts appropriately. Check to see if your phone is both ringing and vibrating, along with other text message notifications, etc. These can drain battery life if you double up.
- Adjust the screen brightness. Even dimming the screen just a little can save battery power.
Be selective with your apps. If you’re using power-hungry apps a lot, then your battery charge will drop. Think about when you really need to use certain apps, and avoid times when they are unnecessary.
