I am just going to list some web refrences on how to save battery life and data usage on a Galaxy 5. you can find some of this information that will work on most phones, but getting to the settings will be different. I am doing this on my Blog, because that is what it is for. I like taking notes so that at least I can find them again. I personally do not own a Galaxy S5, I have a Note 3. I was asked by a friend for some advice so I decided to not re-invent the wheel and compile some refrences of what I do on my phone. I amy learn a trick of two just from reading this stuff. Who knows I may decide to get a smaller handset in the future.
I am including all of the original header text from the Blogs that I am refrencing in this Blog, just because I can.

5 things you can do to reduce your mobile data consumption
Seriously, did you think that unlimited data was going to be around for much longer? As we’ve seen over the course of the last year, wireless carriers are seemingly becoming more stringent when it comes to data plans – especially now that more people are forging ahead with 4G enabled devices.
