I wouldn't call this clever at all...you're just telling users to turn off stuff. These options would work on any phone no matter which OS it was running because the more you disable the better battery life you achieve. At this point we need more than clever tricks for battery life - we just need to use extended battery cases, external battery packs or hope manufactures will put in larger or more efficient batteries. This would allow us to leave on everything and not worry about disable or toggling stuff on and off so damn much!

The only thing that can help lollipop devices are prayers. Google play services is way out of league for any OEM to manage. And the saddest part is, google is doing nothing to fix their pig of an app.

It is utterly ridiculous what gogle has done with google play services and location services. They eat battery like no man's business even when one turns off location services, they still manage to run in the background anyway.

I had much bigger problems with that issue before Lolipop--now it's almost entirely disappeared. So I don't think it's necessarily a Lolipop issue, or that Lolipop makes it worse. But yes, it is an Android problem.

I would agree. Most this stuff is stuff you can do on almost any phone, but just with different directions. Also, the Battery Guru program didn't do much, if anything, on my Snapdragon phone. Hardly a great tip.

I run pandora between 5-7 hours while at work, watch a few videos and do some web browsing and manage 8 hours of life. I just swap the battery out and keep going. If I do a small amount of wev browsing and 1 video, I can mange a whole day on a single charge. It's still a fantastic phone.

I haven't worried about battery life in over a year. If you have a device like mine, with a huge 6+ inch screen, and a FOUR THOUSAND mAH battery, even with heavy use it lasts well over a day, without resorting to "tricks" to keep the battery up. It's these silly increasing specs, faster processors, higher density pixels on screens. Not needed.
