    I saw from a post a while ago that by disabling G+ we could improve battery life. Well I've tried that for a week and battery life has increased by 20 - 30%. Just wanted to let you all know if you're struggling with your battery it might be worth a try.

    Great tip! I personally don't really use G+ anymore, so I'll go ahead and uninstall the updates then disable it, should help battery life.

    Interesting. I rarely use it either so I might try it out, will report back if I do.

    Disabling DRM saves battery life as well from what I've heard.

    Why should we have to disable these apps though....why is this thing killing the battery. Shouldn't be running when its not being used.

    Its a Google phone. Why do we need to disable Google programs.

    You definitely don't *have* to disable it. But if it's not being used then I say why not, especially if it helps out some peeps :biggrin:

    Yes.

    As for increase in battery life, to be honest I just did it last night and disabled G+ this morning, so I haven't noticed any:D
