Android can run simultaneous apps, which is nice, except that it drains battery fast. Most tips revolve around minimizing the amount of software running at a time. Following the following tips for increased battery performance.
1. Widget animation off.
2. Keep Wi-Fi, 4G and GPS turned off when not in use (Start>Settings>connections folder>Wi-Fi>off).
3. Static background, not live. Uses too much unnecessary processing power.
4. Turn off network roaming.
5. Advanced Task Killer download: immediately shuts down all background apps at the push of a button, much more convenient than the normal procedure for doing so.
6. Brightness down.
