Re: Longer battery life

The problem is simply crud that manufacturers add on to bring you the "best" experience. Not everyone will be willing to go this length but Iswill

- Remove unnecessary apps which won't impact MY experience, not just factory ones but ones I've installed

- Install boot manager and stop services I do not immediately need starting up automatically

- use greenify to stop services I do use from running without need after a given time

- avoid apps that push notifications for the sake of it like the plague

- most importantly, use my phone when I need/want to, not feeling the need to check every ten seconds

This gets me 5 days of reasonable use. It's a Samsung note 2014 10.1
