The first and foremost need you nurse when you buy a new device would be to have an extended battery life, right?

Keeping your screen brightness at 50 percent or less is enough for you to look at the screen. Also turning the brightness to zero during bedtime is just perfect, as you will still be able to see the screen very clearly with this.

The next step would be to get rid of all unused services, like, Wi-Fi, if you don’t use that frequently, Bluetooth, NFC, location access and the like.

Android  lets you easily access files. ES File Explorer is a great app for this. It gives you direct access to every file, folder or pictures stored in the internal memory of the tablet, and also to those stored in SD cards.
