    No apps of turning all controls off. Here's what I did for the past couple weeks and really, really helped add hours of life.

    -turn notifications to SILENT. That's it.

    You can turn just your ringer on, which is most essential. But think about it, most of us check our phone to simply check our phone. How long does a text or email ever go without us obsessively looking? And the red flashing light will tip you off if you aren't looking.

    I couldn't believe how much battery the notifications used. Even flipping the screen off and on used less power. TRY IT.

    Btw, I'm using my z10 on vzw if it matters. Use a lot of music streaming, email, tons of texts and air amount of web browsing. I went from 3/4 of a day (7am-7pm) to a full day plus.

    I leave my notifications on but my emails only send an LED notification. BBM and texts still make a sound, and phone calls do both LED and sound with vibrate.

    Works well enough for me.

    What I've found to help with battery life even more than notifications is being connected to a strong WiFi connection. Makes the difference between 1 day of battery or 2. Seriously. Turn your WiFi on when you can, whether or not you have tons of data.

    Turn off "Unlock by Gesture"... guaranteed an extra couple hrs as well as the screen doesn't sit in standby all day waiting for your finger

    Turning down the screen brightness helps too
