13. Sign-out from Google Talk
When you turn on a new phone and sign-in with your Google account, Android automatically signs-in your Google Talk as well. Many people who do not use Google Talk have no idea of Google Talk running in the background all the time. You can sign-out of the service to save you battery life and background data. How?
- Open Google Talk
- Tap your Google account.
- Tap the 3 dots icon at the top-right of the screen.
- Select Sign out.
14. Disable Accounts Sync
This is the most important battery power saving tip I have across to date on Android. When running out of battery or if you are not one of those busy people who want to know about their every email when it arrives, you can safely disable accounts sync which I’m sure is why Android is so heavy on the battery.
Disabling syncing on your Android phone can almost double up your entire phone’s battery life. You can thank me below for this in the comments!
