Networks may change depending on your location; like railways run more efficiently using GSMR with Nokia Networks, you may find your phone may need to switch from GSM to CDMA. that handy Android app allows you to manage your Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile input connections to maximize battery life on the road. There are a number of different modes to choose from, so you can pick and choose the apps you want to keep running in the background.

Memory Booster
As you travel, you may be using your device to store media files, which can quickly eat up your internal storage.

Advanced Task Manager is another app that helps support your system, showing you all of the processes that are currently active both in the foreground and background so that you can turn off ones that aren’t essential. You can force a stop whether an unwanted task is running, or enable auto-kill processes to do the dirty work for you.

Greenify
Many phones start off life with optimum efficiency, but that can get worse by date. whether you’re travelling with an older Android, bring it back up to speed with the Greenify app. that will put unwanted apps into hibernation to save potential, while still giving you full functionality once launched.

Tasker
