Most mobile users leave the vibration on for incoming calls,app notifications, keyboard vibration e.t.c. These are actually serious battery drainers as vibration consumes more battery than it takes to ring it.

5. Outdated Applications

Most of us have outdated applications on our phones,and some of the applications installed on our phones (games and others) are not being used. These considerably run our batteries down seriously,because updating our applications comes with several fixes and tweaks to makes these applications more efficient thereby consuming less battery.

6. Disable auto-synchronization options

Applications like facebook,twitter,reddit etc work by giving you push notifications. These are serious battery drainers. Hence should be disabled when not needed. also applications like e-mail and Google accounts work with auto-sync. hence should be managed thus: just go into Settings and Google account and turn off auto-sync for those apps you don't need constantly updated 

7. Download Ad-free apps Instead

Most of the free applications we have on the internet are choking with advertisements which the developer uses to gain some extra income. Some of these ads are very aggressive and pop-up frequently thereby reducing the enjoyment of these apps. These ads-filled apps are serious drainers of android battery. So,download cautiously

8.Turn Off Google voice search

The OK google voice search which is embedded  in most android phones can be very useful, but at the same time, they are serious battery drainers.To disable it, Go into Google settings from your app drawer and tap Voice heading. On the next page, select OK Google detection. In this menu, the best option for battery life would be to untick all the boxes, but if you are a fan of OK Google, just tick the From the Google app box to ensure your device is only listening when you're in the Google app.
