Rooting is the greatest power which Android users can use if they understand at least the basic of how operating system works.

Android apps which work only on rooted devices are referred as root apps. There are lots of apps available which you can use and they will improve battery life of your smartphone.
I’m mentioning best of such apps and also the way how they will improve battery life.
Due to over usage, battery of Android devices needs to be recalibrate and this is the best app available on the Google play store providing this feature.
After you install the app then plug in the charger and charge your device 100%. When device is charged completely then start by process and once your battery is calibrated completely then use your device until all the battery gets over i.e. use it till 0% battery left.
Now again plug in charger and this is how battery gets calibrated. If there was some issue due to battery of your device then the battery life will definitely improve.
Controlling CPU & GPU
You can control the clock speed of CPU & GPU and set them according to your usage. You can lower the CPU & GPU speed which will improve the battery life and you can increase it at times of excessive usage. Lowering and increasing CPU clock speed is referred to underclocking and overclocking.
There are two apps available in the Google play store which works best for this, SetCPU and AnTuTu CPU Master. SetCPU is available with a price tag while System Tuner is available in both free and paid versions.
There are few other apps like JuiceDefender which you can try. This app will improve the battery life by managing it in a better way.
