What are your tips to utilize the features of an Android smart phone most productively?

I’m looking specifically for features like alarms, application suggestions, talkback, scheduled power-on/off, data savers and anything else you can think of. Please, use your own experiences to make suggestions. Thanks!

    I really like Wunderlist to keep track of tasks, Evernote to keep notes, and the built-in alarm app for any alarms that I need. Here's a good article with a number of useful productivity apps, most of which are available on Android: //www.makeuseof.com/tag/20-productivity-apps-keep-boss-organised/

    I like using IFTTT (https://ifttt.com) you can create recipes for your devices on this website. It makes me more productive by, for example, recognising when I am arriving/leaving work and adjusting my volume settings on my phone accordingly. I also sync this with my JawboneUp24 band and it'll turn my phone to silent as I fall asleep.

    Not using any heavy apps(live wallpapers,RAM hogging apps,widgets)
    Using lightweight apps
    Using app personalised launcher

    For your perspective,Timely app could be useful.Onavo count for data saving.

    Ditching my Android and going back to iPhone was a pretty big productivity boost for me.
