I believe setting brightness levels to even zero does not discomfort sighted, 
of course not us!!

10 tips to boost your Android phone's battery
2014-11-10 13:07:29.0 Techradar

Battery life still tops the complaint charts for smartphone owners tired of the 
daily charging routine. Even though smartphone batteries are growing bigger 
with every passing year, we're not seeing a huge benefit because our Android 
devices are demanding more and more out of them.

No one really wants to be told that the most obvious route to increased battery 
life is to use your phone less or worse: turn off some of the features that 
enticed you to buy it in the first place. So, we've pulled together a list of 
10 simple ways to increase the battery life of your Android smartphone.
Use power saving mode
2014-11-10 13:07:25.0

[cid:image025.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
Most Android device manufacturers have added some form of power-saving mode in 
their smartphones. You can automatically hobble your phone's features or shut 
down specific apps when the battery dwindles below a predetermined level.

Stock Android only offers battery stats for now, but Android Lollipop has a 
battery saver option built in (which means most phones running Android 5 will 
too in the future). If you can't find a power saving option, check out an app 
like Juice Defender.
Automate your phone
2014-11-10 13:08:13.0

[cid:image026.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
You don't need your phone syncing away through the night, so why not introduce 
a bedtime routine that automatically silences it and kills your data and Wi-Fi 
connections? With apps like AutomateIt and Tasker, you can also automatically 
turn things on and off based on triggers and rules you define.
Uninstall or disable apps
2014-11-10 13:07:48.0

[cid:image027.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
Delve into Settings > Apps and flick over to the 'All' tab to find a complete 
list of your apps. Anything in the list that you don't use is a candidate for 
the uninstall pile. In their infinite wisdom, manufacturers sometimes block you 
from uninstalling their apps, but you usually have the option to disable them 
instead, and it's worth doing.
Hibernate or freeze apps
2014-11-10 13:08:01.0

[cid:image028.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
You may also consider installing Greenify to get a good look at what is running 
and automatically hibernate apps that you aren't using, so they aren't eating 
system resources unless you start them up.

You'll need to root your device to really take full advantage, which is simple 
enough but will take a little time to manage if you're new to the process. If 
you do decide to root then you may also consider Titanium Backup Pro for 
freezing unwanted apps.
Streamline your home screen
2014-11-10 13:07:18.0

[cid:image029.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
The busier your home screen, the more battery life it's going to suck. Get rid 
of widgets that you don't need, and consider reducing refresh rates. Animation 
costs power, so ditch the live wallpapers.

If you have a phone with an AMOLED display (such as nearly all of the high end 
Samsung Galaxy models or the new Moto X), then use a dark background for the 
home screen and a dark theme in general. The technology achieves deep blacks by 
not lighting up those pixels and so dark backgrounds can save you some power.
Tweak display settings
2014-11-10 13:08:07.0

[cid:image030.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
Your screen brightness is going to have a big impact on your battery. Don't 
rely on auto-brightness because it will generally be set higher than you really 
need. Reduce brightness manually and keep it as low as is comfortable. You can 
always pull down the notification shade and tweak it quickly via the quick 
settings when you have to.

You should also reduce the screen time out in display settings under sleep. The 
faster your Android device fades to black when not in use, the more power 
you'll save.
Turn off vibrations
2014-11-10 13:07:41.0

[cid:image031.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
When it comes to Android phones and tablets, vibrations can be an unnecessary 
battery killer. Fortunately, you can control it manually.

Start with haptic feedback for key presses. You'll usually find the option to 
turn 'Vibrate on keypress' off in Settings > Language & Input in the options 
for the keyboard you are using. You could also turn off 'Sound on Keypress' for 
extra saving.

You can also go into Settings > Sound and turn off 'Vibrate when Ringing'. 
You'll find a Vibrate option that you can turn off in your SMS app settings as 
well.
Turn off notifications
2014-11-10 13:07:05.0

[cid:image032.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
Do you need to know every time someone likes a post or comments on something 
you've engaged with on Facebook? Do you want to hear about the latest special 
offer or new app in your notification shade?

When you install any app, it automatically gains the right to fire 
notifications at you, but you can stop it in Settings > Apps by tapping on the 
app and clearing the 'Show Notifications' box.
Turn off GPS
2014-11-10 13:06:31.0

[cid:image033.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
Go to Settings > Location and you can see which services and apps are trying to 
track you. Switch the mode to lower accuracy or just turn it off and you can 
save a lot of power.
Underclocking the CPU
2014-11-10 13:07:11.0

[cid:image034.jpg@01CFFDA0.BFA526A0]
If you're willing to root then you can sweep away bloatware and get an 
optimized custom ROM, you can even download an app like SetCPU for Root Users 
and tell your processor to run at a slower speed in order to use less power. 
It's an extreme step, but it definitely has an impact.
