Other than that it's cut down to the bone; what's essential is running. If not for the several hundred emails I get 24 hours a day I'm sure I'd get more than 2-3 days between charges.

Then again, unlike most here, I view my cell phone as an anchor tied to me, that hasn't stopped following me for close to 10 years. It's not a toy. It's a constant, harpy, reminding me of work.
Oh. I didn't realize you had to do that on an android. I have an iPhone 5. But through all of my iPhones I've never had to turn something off to save battery. I leave on LTE, BT, wifi etc all day.
