|| Your cell phone battery doesn’t last nearly as long as it should? Here are some simple tricks to help improve standby and talk time and increase your mobile phone’s energy efficiency.
1. Cut back sound quality: If you can except the reduction, reduce your sound quality, most GSM phones and some CDMA phones will allow you to switch to a lower data rate. Check out your phone’s owner’s manual for voice codec or general phone settings.
2. Shorten screen time: Most cell phones allow you to shorten the delay for which the display stays on. Shorten it and improve your talk and standby time.

The idea here is that anything to obstructs cellular waves decreases your phone’s performance, including anything as small as your finger.
