Save battery with a few simple steps! STAMINA MODE!
Enter the complete details of the tip you want to share.
 
We’ve all been there, trying to save that and every percent of battery we have left on our devices. 
Better than doing a million things all for the same cause, why not just press one simple button and it would do all the job for you! 
 
Follow my lead! 
 
1.    Go into Quick Settings 
2.    Press STAMINA from the settings (make sure you have STAMINA selected in your “Quick Settings list, if not, press edit and select it so it can appear” 
3.    Once selected, STAMINA mode will temporarily disable WI-FI and mobile data when the screen is off and not in use, furthermore most applications will be inactive too. However you will still be able to receive phone calls, SMS/MMS messages and your alarms will still work! Though when the screen is on, the phone will function as normal! 
 
Bare in mind this is different than “Low Battery Mode”

Save your network data

Telecom Tips
Save your network data
Enter the complete details of the tip you want to share.
There we go again, the same old story, my data is decreasing and i’m not using my phone…
Well let me tell you a little secret..
You are actually correct. This is because your phone’s application run updates/background data using the networks.
So you can restrict all your apps from using the network
 
1.    Go into Settings
2.    Enter Data Usage
3.    Press the 3 vertical squares on top of each other on the top right hand corner 
4.    Press “Restrict background data”
 
Though be sure that “If you restrict background mobile data, some apps and services won’t work unless you’re connected to a WI-FI network”

Manage your WI-FI settings when you go to sleep
Enter the complete details of the tip you want to share.
 
Sometimes we forget to turn of wifi when we finally leave our phones on a table and get to sleep. 
Then in the middle of the night we wake up with a notification with one of our cat videos! 
 
I have a little solution for you! 
Though you need to have a preconfigured “sleep mode” time for you phone 
Anyways…. 
 
To automatically turn of WIFI follow my lead 
 
1.    Enter the WIFI settings on your Android phone 
2.    Tap on the 3 vertical squares on top of each other 
3.    Press Advanced options 
4.    Press “Keep WIFI on during sleep 
5.    There you have it 
6.    You can choose from the following three on the menu 
7.    Either “Always”, “Only when plugged in”, “Never (increases data usage)” 
 
No need to thank me, but make sure you look at all those cat videos in the morning! 
(Bare in mind this will increase data usage, if data is turned on)
