To save some battery life, find the display settings on your phone and either lower the brightness or set it to automatic. This adjustment can make a significant difference in your overall battery life.

2. Disable GPS – Many smartphones use GPS for things like driving directions or providing special offers based on your location. These apps use GPS to enhance your experience, but each one of these can cause a drain on your battery. By disabling your GPS and location services you can save battery power.

3. Disable Unneeded Notifications – App notifications are often a major user of battery life on your smartphone. Each time an app provides a notification it usually turns on the screen, plays a sound, and or vibrates the phone.
