To make this happen, goto your phone settings and visit display/screen settings, the best thing is to reduce your screen time-out to the lowest display time-out on your android smartphone. Like it is shown in the android smartphone above, the lowest screen time-out of this smartphone is 15secs, so i will select 15secs and then save it.
Display Brightness Level
Also another important thing that will help make your android smartphone battery last longer is to reduce the brightness level of the smartphone. The best brightness level to put your smartphone, when you are indoors put the brightness level to DIM brightness or reduce the brightness level to the least level. But when you are outdoors, because of the DIM brightness selected and the sunlight outdoor you might not really see clearly some things on your phone, so you can change your brightness level by increasing it to a preferred level where you can now see your phone clear. I advice you do not put you phone display brightness on AUTO MODE.

Especially in android we should all know by now that every thing that works on an android smartphone every including the operating system OS is an application, so this means that your android smartphones’ bluetooth also has an application and this application will continue to run, draining the battery if the bluetooth is on. Bluetooth is also a connectivity option and onething about connectivities is that they drain battery faster than any other system feature. When you aren’t listening to the BT radio or using the hands-free, do your battery a favour and turn it off the bluetooth.
Mobile Data – WiFi Connections
If possible its battery effective to use wireless connectivity for browsing the internet on your android smartphone, like connecting to Hotspots and so on rather using the mobile connection, this is because the mobile phone connection consumes more battery than wireless connections.
