Power Saving Mode Settings
Control your phone’s data delivery and battery usage through this settings menu. See Conserving Battery Power for details.
Conserving Battery Power
Active applications, light levels, Bluetooth usage, and GPS functionality all act to drain your battery. The following is a list of helpful tips that can help conserve your battery power:
n Reduce your backlight on time. n Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.
n Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use. n Turn 4G off when not in use.
n Turn off Sprint Hotspot (Wi-Fi hotspot) services when not in use. This is one of the largest drains on your battery as it is not only transmitting a Wi-Fi connection to your phones but is also doing it while using a 4G connection. n Deactivate the GPS when not needed. Most applications using this function will periodically query the GPS satellites for your current location; each query drains your battery.
Settings

n Do not wait until your battery is completely depleted before charging your phone. Repeating this process of a complete discharge and recharge can over time reduce the storage capacity of any battery. n Turn off Automatic application sync.
n Use the Power saving widget to deactivate hardware functions such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Synchronization, or LCD brightness setting.
n Check the Battery use screen to review what features or functions have been consuming your battery resources. n Check the Running Services and close any unnecessary applications.
n Animated wallpapers use an increased amount of power and memory. Change your Live Wallpaper to a non-animated Wallpaper gallery or Gallery image. Configure Power Mode
