WELCOME TO ANDROID FORUMS!
Utilize the search feature (desktop) at the very beginning/top of this forum,most,if not all battery issues have been discussed & for the most part solved.But,I'll give the quick condensed version here for the most common issues/solutions:
1) Utilize the TASK MANAGER application that can be found in the app drawer. While you're in the app drawer ,also take a look @ the HELP CENTER app,lots of good information to be found there as well.Ditto for the SPRINT ZONE application.
2) Utilize the BATTERY & DATA MANAGER settings (MENU>SETTINGS>BATTERY & DATA MANAGER).
3) Set the screen brightness to AUTOMATIC & utilize a WI-FI connection whenever possible,especially if you're in an extremely weak data coverage area.
4) For now, & recommended from here on out ,DITCH THE BATTERY-SAVER APPS.Once upon a time,these apps may have provided a marginal savings @ best & in most cases,consumed more battery than they were trying to save.Todays more recent incarnations of ANDROID do not need apps for this & do a pretty decent job of managing battery usage & resources.HOWEVER,if you're wanting to customize your phone experience,apps such as TASKER & LLAMA can help by turning on & off apps & activities based on location &/or time of day.This in turn will probably help w/battery life.
5) If you don't mind a bit of extra thickness to your phone,an extended battery is an easy solution to your issues.I myself use a TREXCELL 3500 & I can get 12-13 hrs. of moderate-heavy use between charges.A few more brands that come to mind that have had favorable reviews here & elsewhere are SEIDIO,MUGEN,& Q-CELL.
