On more Android devices, you can turn off location tracking completely by going to location after settings. By the way, at the app level, the option to decide this is currently given only in Android Marshmallow.

In iOS 9 you go to Settings, then choose Privacy and then Location Services. After this you can disable it according to each app. Keep location access on for the apps that need them.

4) A little charge is better than a full charge
A brilliant suggestion from Battery University can be understood from the example of a marathon. By taking the battery directly from 100 percent and ending it at zero, it is better to let it discharge up to 50 percent. Maintain an order between 30 and 80 percent. Doing this will increase your battery discharge cycle three times.

This suggestion applies to laptops and mobile devices. In most devices, you can easily use the brightness settings or reduce the brightness of the screen from third-party apps like Lux. Apart from reducing the brightness of the display, it also changes the color cast of the screen. However, power can be saved on the OLED screen only through a software layer, while the backlight brightness for the LCD will have to be reduced.

6) Update the app over Wi-Fi or while charging the battery
Usually any action that puts pressure on the processor or bandwidth will consume more CPU power. The best would be to have this action generally be static and use Wi-Fi instead of mobile data internet. In such a situation, the best decision would be that you only schedule your app updates over Wi-Fi. If your device has an option then you can only schedule it while charging.

One can access this setting in the Play Store app on Android. Launch the app. Swap from the left side of the screen and open the menu. After that go to Settings, then to Auto-Update Apps. After this, select Wi-Fi only mode. Go to Settings in iPhone or iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular, then in the iTunes & App Store. After that, turn off the use cellular data.

7) Turn on low power mode
Not all Android phones have battery saver mode. If you are using Android 5.0 or later, then this mode is more likely to exist on your device. As soon as your phone battery reaches 15 percent, it automatically becomes active. This background app turns off refresh, location tracking and sync activity, to save battery life. Android comes with Marshmallow Dose feature. If you do not use your phone for a long time, then this feature sends your phone in deep slow mode. The standby time is doubled due to this feature. If you are using an older version Android phone then you will not get this feature.

The iPhone equipped with iOS 9 also has a low power mode which turns off background refresh, visual effects and automatic download. You can access this feature by going to Battery Options from Settings.

If you are using an old Android phone, then it is possible that the manufacturer has given its low power mode on your phone. For example, on Sony phones this is known as Stamina Mode and in HTC as Extreme Power Mode. By the way, you can also use many third-party apps. However, our experience suggests that built-in apps are more effective.

8) Use flight mode
If your phone is not near the cellular tower, then it will also have an impact on standby time. If you are in a place where there is no network, then it would be better to activate the airplane mode (flight mode) in the phone. Your phone will repeatedly search the network in such places which will affect the battery life.
