With these features, you have options to turn off background data and also limit the performance of the device. You can disable GPS, turn off the backlit keys and also lower the screen frame rate. You can either enable this mode manually or set your device to do it automatically once your battery gets to a certain percentage.
Disable LTE, Location, Bluetooth
If you leave your internet connection along with Bluetooth and location tracking turned on all the time, it may drain a lot of battery power from your device. You should try turning these features off whenever you are not using them. You can also place your phone on power saving mode if you need the location service turned on all the time.

Replace TouchWiz Launcher
