    I need help with the battery life. There are times when my battery will hold the majority of its charge for a full day, day and a half, and there are times when it will lose the majority of its charge during the day. Any help would be appreciated

    There's a lot of variables involved, different apps may require different levels of your phone's system resources so the battery draw varies accordingly. Some apps just tax your battery only when you're actually using them, some run in the background continuously, an example being the Twitter app that frequently checks for new postings. Plus there are some apps that you can run in the background, like the Google Music app that just plays in the background even when the display is asleep, and other apps like Google Cardboard that push your phone's CPU and GPU along with always needing the display to be on, that itself is always a big power user. Basically it all boils down to everybody uses different things on their phones at different times so sometimes the battery is getting taxed pretty heavily, sometimes not so much.

    You are only correct on one point. Lowering the screen brightness will reduce power usage. Disabling the WiFi radio *might* help if you have a marginal signal for 3g/4g and WiFi at the same time, but that's going to depend on the specific circumstances. It's not a universal fix. Quitting software that's running in the background will make your battery usage worse, not better.
