Bluetooth- nothing much would be said about this. After transfer of Data, ensure that the Bluetooth is turned off because this drains the energy slowly.

GPS- GPS is also a heavy consumer of battery even though it’s really only essential for a few apps such as navigation or running ones. In the case of most other apps it’s used only to track user behaviour and can generally be deactivated without disadvantages. To be on a safer side,  go-to the phone’s settings and look under battery – that will show the energy consumption of each app. If the app’s energy use is excessive it can be disabled or uninstalled. Under data-usage settings, you can also restrict which apps you allow mobile data rights to – this will help spare the battery as well as reduce data consumption.

Charging- know this, batteries are of types. You are are expected to charge nickel-metal hydride batteries (NiMH) when it's flat dead i.e. when it has fully discharged and when charging, charge it fully because of the memory effect.
