How to prolong a cell phone’s battery?

**This question doesn’t deal with how long the battery lasts, it’s about how much charge a battery will hold.

I have the new galaxy s4 and I don’t want the battery to only last a few hours before I need to charge it again.
I’ve changed the settings to be as conservative as I can manage, but what about the physical things that I can do to prolong the battery life?
Out of the box, the instructions said to let the phone charge to 100% before use but I didn’t do exactly that. I plugged it in while playing around the settings.
I know that overcharging batteries kill them faster and I know that despite what I do, age will kill the battery anyways. I also know to store the battery in a cool place and not let it heat up, although my phone heats up while using it. Should I stop using it when it gets too hot?
Does a full cycle truly affect the battery life? I read on another Yahoo! Answer that it was a myth. But is it particularly harmful to not charge the phone until it is absolutely needed? And are there any real tips that will prolong the battery life?

Try these things…
Reduce the backlight brightness and timeout
if you have a live wallpaper, change it to static
turn off wi-fi, bluetooth, and nfc when not in use
disable GPS when not in use
stop apps running in the background
sync email and other things less often
turn off vibrate notifications
turn on power saving mode
try download a battery saving app

  1. Just buy another battery and keep it with you, that’s what I did when I had a galaxy.
