Sometimes you may send in some apps or videos to your friends via Bluetooth and then forget about it, this drains the battery a lot, switch it off when you won't be using it any longer.

4) Turn off Vibration Mode

Yes, I know vibration mode is better than that annoying ringtone of ours, but this drains up the battery. The vibration mode drains more battery than a ringtone so it's better you go for ringtone or the silence mode, to save some juice.

5) Use a Wall Socket

It's better to use a wall socket rather than plugging your USB cable into your Computer or Laptop. Non - wall sockets only offer a power output of 0.5A which is very low and will charge very slowly. Wall socket charging will give you 1A, depending on your device. It's better to use your power brick and plug into a wall socket for faster charging. There's no harm in using the non-wall socket, but it will take more time compared to a power brick.

To access the developer options, head over to Settings>About>Phone>Build number. Tap on build number until you see a on-screen message saying that you are a developer.

7) Use Cable Provided by Company

One of the main things which we need to keep in mind is to never use any other charging cable other than the one provided by your device company. The USB cable and the power brick in the box is specially made for the device which comes with it, and if you charge it with any other USB cable the speed of the charging won't be same, so it's better and safer to use the one provided by the company itself, in the box.
