Turn Off Wi-Fi, Hotspot, GPS, and Bluetooth When Unused:

  1. Drag the “Status” bar down on the home screen
  2. Tap the tiles associated with “Bluetooth”, “Wi-Fi” and “Location” to disable them

Use 2G Networks:

NOTE: In case your phone runs low on battery and you don’t have access to a battery bank / wall socket, you can conserve battery life by temporarily switching to 2G. To do this:

  1. Go to “Settings”
  2. Under “Wireless & Networks”, tap “More”
  3. Tap “Mobile networks” > “Preferred network type”
  4. Select “2G”

  4. Turn off the desired sync options and tap “Menu” > “Sync now” to refresh your account’s sync settings

Switch From a Live Wallpaper to a Static One:

NOTE: Live wallpapers can have a negative effect on battery life, especially those that are greatly animated and require more CPU / GPU activity. As such, switching to a static wallpaper (picture) can save up battery life in the long run.

  2. Tap “Wallpapers” at the bottom
  3. Scroll through the wallpapers at the bottom and select one, or choose a picture from “My photos”

  1. Open the “Settings” menu
  2. Tap “Apps” under “Device”
  3. Go to “Downloaded”
  4. Select the desired app and tap “Disable” / “Force Stop” to turn off the app
  5. To remove the application, tap “Uninstall” > “OK”

NOTE: Tests have shown that the Facebook and Facebook Messenger applications can have a large impact on battery life, so if possible, it’s recommended to uninstall these apps from your phone, and perhaps use Facebook Lite instead.

Keep the OS Updated:

NOTE: Software updates can include improvements to battery life, so by keeping your phone’s software up to date you can usually extract the most performance out of your battery.

  1. Open “Settings”
  2. Scroll down to “System”
  3. Tap “About phone” > “System update”
