    Lower the Screen Brightness and Timeout Duration:

    Disable Unused Connectivity Features:

    NOTE: You can disable the phone’s connectivity features when they are not actively in use, such as Hotspot, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS to avoid unnecessary network scans and potentially improve battery life.

    5. Enable “Battery saving”
    6. Return to “Settings” and tap “More” under “Wireless & Networks”
    7. Turn “Tethering & mobile hotspot” Off

    Switch to 2G Networks Temporarily:

    NOTE: If your phone runs low on battery and you don’t have quick access to a battery bank or wall socket, you can conserve energy until the next recharge by temporarily switching to 2G networks.

    2. Tap “More” under “Wireless & Networks”
    3. Access “Mobile networks”
    4. Tap “Preferred network type” and enable “2G”

    Minimize Third-Party App Usage:

    1. Open “Settings”
    2. Access “Apps”
    3. Switch to “Downloaded” or “All apps’ if necessary
    4. Select the desired app and tap “Disable” / “Force Stop”
    5. To remove the app, tap “Uninstall”

    Change Sync Settings:

    NOTE: You can change your accounts’ settings to reduce sync and potentially improve battery life in the long run.

    1. Open “Settings”

    3. Tap the desire account
    4. Change the available settings to reduce sync as desired

    Keep the OS Updated:

    1. Launch “Settings”
    2. Go to “About phone” and tap “System updates”
    3. Check if new updates are available
    4. If applicable, follow the on-screen prompts to download and install the update
