The following are tips and tricks to Power up your droid smartphone and also to extend the battery life.

Lower Your Brightness

i’m aware if you like to shine. However, if you want to save your droid battery, you have to turn it down a level with lower brightness.
Your super-bright Super AMOLED display might look pretty, however if the brightness is turned way up, your droid probably consuming a lot of battery. Either switch on Automatic brightness, so that the screen dims in bright rooms once you don’t require a highly-illuminated display, otherwise move your scale to the left to dim it manually.
On the Galaxy S3 : Go into Settings – Display- Brightness.

Install A Battery-Monitoring App Like JuiceDefender

Open your Google Play Store and pick up one of many battery-saving apps. JuiceDefender (at left) is a particularly popular, if ugly, one. You can try out a free version and, if you like it, upgrade to the paid app later. That gives you more control over the ways in which JuiceDefender can conserve power.

Turn Off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are like the Stockton and Malone of connectivity options that deplete your battery life when you’re not even using them. Switch both off if you’re somewhere you know you won’t need either; you can probably go ahead and turn off Bluetooth for good, unless you’re using it daily.
On the Galaxy S3 : Go to Settings app, switch Wi-Fi and Bluetooth into the “Off” position. You can also toggle these options from the Notifications menu, which you swipe down from the top of the screen.

Turn Off Location Settings

Several of your Android apps, such as your Google Maps, use Location Services to locate your position with accuracy. Turning these off might make your mapping experience a bit less accurate, but at least you’re not using Apple Maps.
On the Galaxy S3 : Go to Settings, then Location Services, and uncheck at least the first and third box to extend your battery life.

Adjust Your Screen Timeout

If your phone’s screen is on, but you aren’t around to use the phone, your battery might drain slowlyI recommend you to minimize your screen timeout as far down as you can take it to stop needlessly wasting power on illuminating a display you aren’t using. You should also make sure to manually lock your screen when you put your phone into your bag or pocket to make sure that you aren’t accidentally pushing buttons dialling your contact list or opening an apps.
On the Galaxy S3 : Go to Settings, then Display, then Screen Timeout. Mine is set for 30 seconds.

Ditch The Live Wallpaper

The Android Live Wallpapers might be hypnotizing — and fun to show off to your iPhone-toting friends — but if you need to squeeze all you can out of your phone’s battery, it’s best to disable the Live Wallpaper. You can use static wallpapers from your gallery instead.
On the Galaxy S3: Go to Settings, Wallpaper, and choose something from Gallery or static Wallpapers.

Examine Your Battery Usage And Disable Power-Sucking Apps

Android allows you to view the breakdown of which apps and processes are draining your battery, by percentages. You might be housing a power-sucking app without even realizing it, something running in the background without your knowledge. If you find that naughty little app, boot it off your phone and reap the rewards.
On the Galaxy S3 : Go to Settings – Battery.

Enable Power Saving Mode

This isn’t available on all Android smartphones, but if yours has it, Power Saving mode represents a super-quick way to toggle a bunch of settings that can conserve battery life.
On the Galaxy S3 : Go to Settings, and the Power Saving mode toggle is in between “Motion” and “Storage.” You can also individually change the settings, at left.

Remove Bloated Widgets You Aren’t Using

Your phone probably comes pre-loaded with a bunch of widgets that you never use; some of them contain animations and some automatically update throughout the day. If you’re not using your Yellow Pages search bar or app suggestion grid (at left), cut it free. There are better things to put on your homescreen, anyway.
On the Galaxy S3 : Long-touch the widget you want to remove and then drag it to the trashcan at the bottom right.

Change App Updating Settings

Usually, some of your downloaded apps will update automatically when a newer version is available. This can sap power and eat up your data plan without your knowledge, which I think we can agree is a bummer. Turn off auto-updating apps — you can do it manually in the Google Play Store — and choose to update over Wi-Fi only so that you can use data where it counts.
On the Galaxy S3 : Enter the Google Play Store, then press the “Menu” soft key next to the home button.

Enable Airplane Mode If Your Signal Is Weak

If your phone is only getting a bar or two of signal, and you don’t expect to be making or receiving any pressing calls or texts, turn on Airplane Mode. When a phone’s signal is straining to connect to a network, especially 4G LTE, it uses up a lot of power. So if you find that your signal is weak in a given location and you need to conserve power, switching to Airplane Mode — which ends all connectivity — can save battery.

On the Galaxy S3 : Go to Settings, then under “Wireless and Network” touch “More Settings.” Airplane Mode is the first option. You can also pull down the Notifications bar and find Airplane Mode on that topmost strip of icons, all the way to the right.
