Smartphones running Android are battery-powered consumers. However, it is possible to decrease resource consumption and ensure some extra hours of use without installing management applications. Knowing this, TechTudo has prepared a list of 15 simple steps, but it will ultimately save your smartphone battery consumption. See below:
Enable Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth when you need
Step 1. Turn off Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth from your devices. When not connected to a Wi-Fi network, the phone searches for new networks all the time, generating unnecessary battery consumption. The same goes for Bluetooth. GPS should only be enabled when useful for any application, such as Google Maps.
Step 2. Disable Fast dormancy from your device. The technology keeps your Android smartphone in an intermediate state between activity and inactivity on the 3G network, awakening faster and sending fewer connection signals on the network. However, Brazil's 3G is not ready for this technology yet. To deactivate, enter the following code on your phone dialer: * # * # 9900 # * # * and click Disable fast dormancy.

Step 3. Disable automatic syncing of your Google account or other service accounts. You can also manually control when and what to sync, saving battery and data plan consumption.
Step 4. Turn off automatic updates and syncs for apps like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. You can update them manually according to your needs. This not only saves battery power but also data plan.
Step 5. Turn off the motion sensor for features of the launcher. The motion sensor will be used very often, making the system even beautiful to use and show to friends, but consuming a lot of battery. To do so, enter Options and access the option Movement.
Off syncs save battery
Step 6. Change Gmail sync to manual mode and reduce the number of days to sync.
Imagine Gmail connecting to a 3G network every hour and downloading 30 days of email? Your battery goes away.
Step 7. Do not use Task Killers type programs. In fact, these apps can become big viles of your smartphone. They clean your device's RAM from time to time, eliminating programs that the system itself keeps open for quick access. But keeping these software running on a scheduled basis can increase battery consumption.

Step 8. Change your Internet browser options so that it automatically dims when a website opens;
When we spend a lot of time with open browser on our Androids, the maximum screen brightness can overheat the device and consume a lot of battery. Always keep it at low levels.
Step 9. Do not use applications that make the camera flash a flashlight; Using this type of program can reduce LED life and consume more battery resources.
System return options increase battery consumption
Step 10. Disable the options of feedback such as audible ringtones and selection, screen lock sounds, etc.
Step 11. Reduce vibration intensity, sound volume, media and bells.
Step 12. Do not use live wallpapers. They may be cute and fun, but they always require the processor, the GPU (graphics) and therefore the battery. Prefer static wallpapers, such as photos or pictures from the Internet.
Step 13. Disable the automatic update and satellite tracking options of your weather application if you use it. The same reason for any app syncing: your smartphone connects to 3G from time to time to download data, unnecessarily consuming the battery.
Step 14. Only leave on your home screen the widgets You really need and be careful about those who connect to the Internet. Each widget in your homescreen demands processor and GPU usage to be displayed. In addition, those who consume data from your package.
Reduce the brightness of your screen
Step 15. Reduce the backlight duration and the brightness of the screen. The less time the screen stays on without the device being used, the better.
Reduce the time to 30 seconds, which is enough to save a lot of battery. In addition, the low brightness display also prevents the phone from getting too hot in your hand.
Ready! These are good usage practices that save you a lot of battery life on your smartphone without the need to purchase or install an app.
