Before we continue I would like to point out something really important about android .
Days are gone when we use Nokia java,blackberry old os that has long life battery capacity and doesn't run multitasking or open 4-10 tabs at same time.though recently android manufacturers have improved a lot by increasing battery capacity.some android phones now have 400-1,000 battery capacity,with this battery capacity you re guaranteed of 12hours talk time not really bad but we have to look into what exactly are draining our battery so fast and how to making it last longer.
Why android battery runs down so quickly
