Top 7 Ways to Improve your Android Battery Life

Battery life is unfortunately one of the things that hasn’t radically evolved along with the rest of smartphone technology. We are still limited in both capacity and space, and using the phone to its full potential will quickly deplete a full charge. Add to this the fact that the battery will also wear out by itself and hold less charge as time goes on, and you have a really bad combination on your hands. However, there’s always something you can do to improve battery life and squeeze some extra juice that just might make a difference, so if you’re struggling with battery life, maybe these tips will help you in the long run.
Deep Sleep Battery Saver can auto-manage most of below settings. 

1. Use Only 2G Networks

How to root Nexus 4

Unlocking The Bootloader And Obtaining Root

This part of the tutorial is geared towards Windows users. The MAC instructions are very similar, from what I understand. Install the package the same way. All ADB/Fastboot commands may need to start with "adb-mac" (no quotes) rather than "adb" (no quotes). Due to the vast amount of Linux distros available; instructions will vary for your device. OnceADB/Fastboot are set up all command will begin with "./adb" (no quotes) rather than "adb" (no quotes). Once ADB/Fastboot are set up; this guide is relevant to everyone.

Time required: 20-40 minutes.

Deep Sleep Battery Saver

We release today a new app, Deepsleep Battery Saver in beta-test. Deepsleep battery saver constantly puts the device to deepsleep mode while screen off. During deepsleep mode on, Wifi, 3G are turned off, background apps are stopped. Therefore, most apps are not working, including Facebook, Google Service, etc,. By this way, the app can save battery alot of consumption.

By constantly put device into deepsleep mode, we will save battery life due to no Internet connection, and therefore most of network-based apps, such as Facebook, Gmail will not work.
Please checkout more detail full description of the app here and start discussion on XDA-developer forum thread.
