Nexus 4 user – Hey all I bought my new nexus today i want to know what apps do you have on yours?? And how i can save my battery ? by Moayad Al-Natsheh
Saving battery: turn off Wifi when you are not using it, turn off NFC, Set brightness lower or at least automatic, avoid leaving your phone in an area with low signal if possible as that thrashes the battery, don’t use live wallpapers. Or in my case; Root it, install CyanogenMod 10.1 and the Franco kernel :) by Antony Bragg

Official – Extend battery life

To control Battery settings, go to Settings > Device > Battery.

You can extend your battery’s life between charges by turning off features that you don’t need. You can also monitor how apps and system resources consume battery power.

  • If you aren’t using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or GPS, use the Settings app to turn them off. The GPS setting is located in Settings > Personal > Location access.
  • Don’t leave the Maps or Navigation apps open on the screen when you’re not using them. They use GPS (and thus more power) only when they’re running.
  • Turn down screen brightness and set a shorter Sleep timeout: Settings > Device > Display.
  • If you don’t need it, turn off automatic syncing for all apps: Settings > Wireless & Networks > Data usage, and uncheck Auto-sync data. Note that this means you need to sync manually to collect messages, email, and other recent information, and won’t receive notifications when updates occur.
  • If you know you won’t be near a mobile or Wi-Fi network for a while, switch to Airplane mode:Press and hold the power switch until the device options dialog appears. Then touch Airplane Mode.
Check battery level and usage details

Open Settings > Device > Battery.

The list at the bottom of the screen shows the breakdown of battery usage for individual apps and services. Touch a graph for more details. The details screen for some apps includes buttons that allow you to adjust settings affecting power usage, or stop the app completely.

Warning: If you stop some apps or services, your device may not work correctly.

Battery status (charging, discharging) and level (as a percentage of fully charged) are displayed at the top of the screen.

The discharge graph shows battery level over time since you last charged the device, and how long you’ve been running on battery power.
