Make use of Power Saving Mode:
Always ensure that you reduce the brightness of the screen so that extended back light don’t eat much battery as higher the brightness, higher is the consumption of battery power and also if you can then you can automatically put the display in the power saving mode so that it will automatically adjust the back light according to the outside light intensity.

So, always use darker wall papers preferably black. using darker wallpapers constitutes to a battery saving of not less than 10%.

Yes, with android which is famous for multi and simultaneous use of applications we tend to use many apps at a single time, try to avoid using many apps at single time as parallel your phone will constitute the battery life as all the applications will be needing the battery power which will drain the battery faster than the normal use. The simple trick here is clear the RAM from the task manager time to time when you open up many apps and wants to close the same. Also, most importantly the features like the GPS, WiFi and also the camera are the biggest battery drainers, so use them whenever necessary and its better to turn these off whenever not in use to save on battery. You can turn off the Wi Fi from here, HOME > MENU > Settings > Wireless & Networks.
Use GSM Mode:
In an age where we talk of no less than 3G as we all love new technology and if you are the one whose operator has already rolled out the 3G Service then irrespective of you use it or not you tend to use the Network mode as Dual Mode (GSM/WCDMA), at this time what happens is that if there is 3G network available then it will search for the same, so to avoid this you can select the GSM Mode and then later you can choose WCDMA mode if you want to make any video calls.
Just like us, battery too requires the maintenance. To ensure that your battery’s life is extended make sure that once in two months you clean the battery contacts with the dry piece of cloth and also avoid frequent pull outs of the battery as this will degrade the life of the battery very faster than the later.
