Android smartphones come with preloaded battery app from where you can get your battery usage details. You’ll find that most of the battery is used by the display. As I mentioned in starting that you can’t minimize battery usage of display but you can minimize of other apps.
Although you can minimize the brightness of your smartphone to save battery but I won’t recommend you doing this as lowering the brightness makes content viewing harder in day but you can surely try it during night.

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & GPS
These three can consume your battery life and as you wish to extend battery life so you need to make sure that these three connectivity features are turned off when they are not being used.

Android provides customization powers to the users and there are tons of apps available in the Google play store which will provide you live wallpapers and different animations.
These features will surely make your device look better but on the other hand they will also consume the battery life which is already a critical issue. Now you’ve to choose either animation or an extended battery life.
There are lots of apps particularly the social networking which consumes great amount of battery life. As we need to stay connected to our virtual social world so we can’t delete those apps but we can turn off the automatic synchronization feature of them.
