How do I improve battery life?

• Turn on adaptive battery. Settings > Battery > Adaptive battery – toggle on.
• When the battery gets to 15% or lower, turn on “Battery saver mode”. Settings > Battery > Adaptive battery – toggle on.
• Applications (such as Skype™) that frequently utilize VOIP (Voice over IP) and other data via Wi-Fi or 3G/4G can significantly reduce battery life. Disable any such applications when maximum battery life is desired.
• Set the display sleep to a start after 15 seconds of inactivity. To change the display timeout settings: from the home screen tap > Settings > Display >Advanced > Screen timeout > select a shorter delay time (suggested 15 seconds).
• Reduce the intensity of the display. To change the display’s brightness, Settings > Display > Brightness level > drag the control bar to the left for a dimmer display or right for a brighter display.
• Disable Wi-Fi when not using it. To disable Wi-Fi: Settings > Network and Internet > tap the on/off button so it is no longer green.
• Make sure your phone has the latest software updates. To check for the latest updates: Settings > System > System update > Check for update.
• Stop any unnecessary programs you installed from running in the background by: Settings > Apps and notifications > See all apps > select and disable any apps that you do not need. Note! Only stop applications that you have installed. Stopping other pre-installed applications may result in poor phone performance or errors.
• When a phone is in a low/no signal area, it will frequently scan to see if there is a better signal to lock on to. If one cannot be found, it will attempt to continue searching resulting in additional battery drain.
