    Remove Facebook client for Android or iOS. You will free up a lot of memory besides saving battery power. (> 200 MB !) If you use FB client for a long time, it may take a cache of several GB! Use only the browser.

      Try to deactivate all unnecessary idle connections, many apps have options for that.
      Never let the battery get empty. Lithium-cobalt batteries used in 99,9% of smartphones don't have the memory effect but can lose their efficiency after they have lost their energy. Especially if your phone is empty never let it without battery load over several days. Inside every 'Li-ion' battery a chip is preventing that voltage falls below critical level and even on multimeter the battery can show 0 volt, because chips cut off the power. However, even thought you phone shows battery is empty there is still 10-20% power in it. Control chips inside batteries need a little bit power as well, therefore without a full load they can consume over the time the remaining electrical power out of the cell. Without any power Li-ion batteries produce Hydrogen gas inside, most of those cells get round or look like a pillow, in this case they are irreparable damaged.

        In February I got my new smartphone. Following simple advices that I'm going to say help me a lot to keep to use it for more than a week without recharging in my every charging period. Remove your applications that you frequently use for fun and remove other applications which waste your battery with their background processes. Also wait for the end of quite full charge before recharging your battery and shutdown it before recharges. Never discontinue the charging before your batter gets %100.

        by the way being an asocial may help you a lot either

          There are plenty of apps that can solve your problem easily, especially if your phone is rooted. Personally, I think that rooting it's a great idea, as it gives you more free apps and many more. Anyway, I came across this article, it may help you https://safe-root.com/top-5-battery-...ooted-android/

            After buying a mobile Android device, you need to use the battery correctly. In all instructions to phones it is written: before operation of the device it is necessary to make 3 full discharges and 3 full charges of the battery. So you shake the battery and it will reach its maximum capacity.

            There is a special phone charge cycle that prolongs the life of the smartphone battery.

            Step 1: Wait until the smartphone shows low battery. Put it on charge for 8 hours;
            Step 2: Unplug the smartphone from power, turn off the smartphone completely, and put it back on charging in OFF mode. Charge so another 1 hour;
            Step 3: Unplug your smartphone, turn on the device, wait until it is fully loaded (it will take a few minutes). Then again, turn off the smartphone and put to charge for another 1 hour.

            You think this is stupid? Here, do this once and see the difference!

            It is important > > This procedure not necessarily to do often, 1 times in six months well enough.

              What you are refering to is a battery calibration. This is used to measure the highest and lowest voltage to then base battery calculations on. It does in fact, NOT increase or decrease the actually battery life or time. It's simply a measurement to get a accurate battery level in software.
              You are also talking about 3 full discharges and 3 charges, that is NOT how modern lithium batteries work. That is how old lead based things worked but ain't no one have that anymore.

              So yeah, i don't think its stupid, I know it is. I also know why, something I think you don't.
              For those wanting to know more about batteries and battery care the amply named batteryuniversity has more information and papers to read than you will ever have the energy for. Great source of information.

              Because what dmitri11 here suggest is a sure fire way to reduce the amount of battery cycles you have left and wear out your battery ahead of time.


              Now, on to battery-saving tips.

              Reduce screen brightness, normally the biggest drain a phone have.
              If you have a more modern device, lowering the rendering resolution can help
              Deep sleep is A and O for androids. Constant movement and constant poking will stop the phone from ever entering deepsleep, and it will have a constant larger drain instead.
              Use a app, accubattery or similar to determin battery status, health, optimal charging as well as what apps are draining the most sauce. Not always able to give a good answer but its a start.

                Then this procedure is better to do during the warranty period.
