Today many users prefer an android smartphone which can perform many other tasks apart from receiving and making calls. Battery life however has been a major concern with many users and no doubt it will be, as the smartphones come loaded with many features that can easily drain the battery juice.

Features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and even the 3G connection can become a major source of power drainage.  Ideally any smartphone should easily last for about a day of moderate usage or even more. But if it is anything less than this, you seriously need to look at the apps and / or the enabled features that may be the real culprit behind it.

There are two ways to get a better battery life. The manual method – simply switch off the services that you are not using for example, Data, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. The other option is to use a Battery Saver app that will do the work for you.

The battery saver app will shut down the services that you are not using and can even activate the services as and when required. This way the phone will last for a longer time on a single charge. Here are some really good battery saver app for Android handsets, try it and let me know which one worked the best.
