Don’t go with fancy wallpapers
Animated and live wallpapers may seem very eye-catching or soothing but consume battery a big-time as they constantly use the RAM.

Use the phone at the lowest possible brightness
Install the brightness toggle widget or just use your phone on the lowest possible brightness in order to make your Android phone last whole day. Because the display is by far the biggest use of power. The automatic brightness option can also help you in this regard.
Turn off Wi-Fi when not required
When you absolutely don’t require Wi-Fi or don’t want to be disturbed by an official email turn off the Wi-Fi as it will greatly save you the battery. I know it is boring but will definitely help you to save a little.
Uninstall all the unnecessary applications
You can never tell what is running in the background. The modern Android OS provides the functions of multitasking, self-uploading, and replicating in the background, which constantly uses the RAM and consumes the battery. So the best practice is to keep your phone last longer than usual as is to keep it free from unnecessary applications.
Turn off the vibrating motor on your phones
Another major factor that utilizes power the most is the vibrating motor. The electric motors fitted inside the mobile phones which vibrate on the event of any notification; the phone call consumes power as it creates motion against the friction, which causes the issue of battery draining. So turning off the vibrating machine can help greatly to make your Android last longer.
Keep your phone at the moderate temperature
Batteries work better in low temperatures, whereas the prolonged warm temperature can influence the powering efficiency of your battery. Put your phone in a loose pocket rather than a tight one to keep it away from your body heat.
Switch off the GPS
If you’re not one of those people who still use foursquare to inform the world about your whereabouts, there’s a reason to keep your GPS active on the phone at all times. Turn on the GPS when you actually require it and better use the option of detecting your location through a Wi-Fi connection. Wi-Fi connection estimated location is mostly close enough to most apps.
Use battery saver
Battery saver – an inbuilt function which almost every smartphone contains nowadays. It helps you manage the battery usage for the apps and other functions. It prevents the battery consumption on the background processes and reduces the screen timeout and animation etc.
Do not let the battery drop to its lowest
The Android smartphone’s battery can easily be prolonged by simply charging it when it reaches 40%. When you wait too long to charge the battery, it has to work harder, lowering its expected life.
Allow the apps to update
Allow the apps to update when connected to Wi-Fi because the updates are definitely released to improve the overall performance and efficiency of the app which also includes energy efficiency than the previous versions.
