How do I save battery life on my Moto G 2nd generation phone without installing third party apps ?

  • Same as on other devices. See our battery-life tag-wiki for hints, and especially follow up to What can I do to increase battery life on my Android device?

  • I didn't mark it duplicate :) Most items are general, here and on the other question as well. And what's general, answers this and the other question :)

  • Droidzer, I was not critisising – just providing related information. Up to now, I didn't realize you're the OP and answerer at the same time, or I had phrased it differently :) But apart from that: many points are named in both places. Your answer had fit over there as well, as it adds some minors (keypad tones, volume, pulse notification – they don't do much, but they contribute their part).

To save battery without installing third party apps here are a few tips,

  • Disable vibration on your phone for notifications, calls, keypads.
  • Disable keypad tones.
  • Turn off Automatic screen rotation.
  • If you prefer to keep your phone silent during night, better switch it to Airplane mode, this will save a lot of battery.
  • Keep your phones brightness to a minimum.(Disable auto brightness option.)
  • Keep your phones volume low.
  • Turn off mobile data when not in use.
  • Disable background data on mobile networks for specific apps which consume unnecessary. To do this navigate to Settings - > Data Usage, there you will find the list of apps that consume the data, click on the app and then select "Restrict background Data".
  • Disable the pulse notification light. Go to Settings - > Display and uncheck the option Pulse notification light.
