Point 1.)

Reduce the screen brightness. By setting – > voice and display settings – > brightness, you can adjust screen brightness to the appropriate value. In fact, even you adjust the Android mobile phone screen brightness to the lowest, it is still very clear and can effectively save energy. For the mobile phone which supports optical sensor, you also can check the “Automatic brightness” to automatically adjust screen brightness according to external light. The users can also download the Widget to set brightness at any time in the electronic market download.

Point 2.)

Close WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G and 4G net when you don’t use them. Many mobile phones have been built-in a Widget plug-in to open and close these function, if it is not installed in your Galaxy S4, you can go to the Android Market to download this Toggle Widget software.

Point 3.)

Close the data roaming function through the mobile phone menu Settings > wireless network settings > mobile network settings, and deselect the data roaming. This can save a lot of mobile phone battery energy for you, and it will not affect the  mobile phone network function, the program can still connected network at any time.

Point 4.)

Reduce the screen standby time, by setting – > voice and display settings and select the appropriate screen standby time. You can choose 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minutes, 2 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes or never timeout. However, if you  choose a too short screen standby time, it will often lead to mobile phone screen dead. So my personal advice is to set it to 1 minute.

Point 5.)

Shut down the screen when you don’t use it. This is a very good habit of saving battery energy, but it takes time to develop. Every time when you finish using the mobile phone, you just need to press power button to before you put it into your pocket, it is really a good habit to extend mobile phone battery energy.

Point 6.)

Close the Wi-Fi dormancy strategy. This may sound a little unbelievable, but after the Wi-Fi sleeping, the mobile phone will automatically switch to the 3G network, and 3G network can consume more battery power than Wi-Fi. By setting – > wireless and network setting ->Wi-Fi, then use the menu key, select advanced options, open the Wi-Fi dormancy strategy, choose never sleep to shut down WiFi dormancy strategy.

Point 7.)

Close the LED warning light color. This is a very useful function for some people, they can judge there are unread messages or missed calls through the different colors of light, but it also can be closed for most people.
