#1 Switch off startup apps

It would help you to a great degree if you turn off all startup apps not are not necessary. This will not only ensure less power usage but also help start the handset in less time.

#3 Turn Off the vibration mode

It is not at all necessary to keep vibrating alert in all profiles. It would suffice if you keep it on in just silent profile.

When the phone is powered on, the antenna in the phone searches for network signal, WiFI, 3G, 4G etc. This results in a good consumption of battery power. This is where airplane mode comes in. Whenever you do not like to be disturbed while watching a movie or listening to songs it would be far more appropriate, if you put your phone in airplane mode and use it just like a PDA.
