             1. Check signal strength. When signal strength is low, the phone has to use a greater power to send and receive information.

             2. See brightness. Turning the LCD back light on depletes the battery quickly.

             3. Close applications properly. When you press Home button to exit applications, they are running in the background.

             5. Applications requiring regular updates such as stock and weather widgets are likely to accelerate battery drain if their update cycle is short.

             11. Skype, Facebook, App usage apps tend to consume much power. Make sure to close them properly.
