One of the major power eaters that discharge your phone are the Push notifications like incoming mails to your mail accounts. So, one of the best ways to optimize your battery life will be to set your phone to receive mail notifications every hour or so, and hence, enjoy both a long battery life as well as a turned on internet connection that helps you to receive notifications all the time.
Fine tune the brightness:
We all know that larger LCDs are a big source of power consumption. So when that adds to the constant usage of a smartphone, a very small battery life almost becomes a given. However that need not be so. Setting the brightness to a high level consumes more power. So, tune down the brightness of your screen and enjoy better battery life noticeably.

Download while charging:
You may download anything, including heavy apps, but it will discharge the battery very quickly.

This will not only save the battery, but you will probably have your phone connected to your Wi-Fi connection and this will help save on data expenses too. Invest in a spare battery or a charger for the car, so that while you are travelling, you can use this time for charging your phone.
