    4. Tap "OK" to confirm
    Minimizing the Use of Third Party Apps:

    NOTE: while you may not use all of your third party applications, some apps can still affect your phone's battery life on the long run, assuming that they run processes and services in the background even while they don't run in the foreground. As such, it's recommended that you disable or uninstall unused third party apps:
    1. Open the apps drawer
    2. Tap "Settings" and swipe to "Device"

    1. Access the phone's "Settings" menu
    2. Tap "Tethering & Networks" > "Mobile networks"
    3. Mark the "Use only 2G networks" check box
    4. To switch back to 4G, clear the check box
    Keeping Your Device Up to Date:

    NOTE: Manufacturers and carriers sometimes release new software updates that can improve your phone's battery performance. As such, it's recommended that you keep your device up to date. However, keep in mind that performing the steps below while no update is available won't have any effect on your phone's battery life.
    1. Tap "Apps" while on the home screen
    2. Go to "Settings" > "System"
    3. Tap "About phone" > "update center"
    4. Tap "System updates" and press the "Check now" button
    5. In case an update is available, follow the on-screen instructions to download and apply it on your device

    Another tip that I have found useful is to drain the battery at least once a month and then recharge it again. This prolongs the battery life by a considerable period of time. I have done this with all my handsets and they have outlasted handsets that were owned by my friends.
