Friends, I want my Moto G smartphone to last as long as possible between chargings. I've begun deleting apps I never use and selecting disable on those that I can't remove. Please suggest best practices for me to follow. Also, please suggest good apps to have. Thank you.

A few ideas, not sure how much of an impact they will make.

Turn off Bluetooth if you are not using it.
Turn off notification and keyboard sounds and vibrations.
Lower screen brightness or use adaptive brightness.
Enable power saving mode (background apps may not update).
Don't use widgets or live wallpapers.

I'm not a fan of apps that claim to optimize memory or battery usage. Don't think they really help and might cause problems.

You can install GSAM battery monitor to see which apps are using battery.

Dare I suggest that the phone be turned off? I know it's like amputating a limb, but on a related note, if you are getting rid of body parts, with your phone off they won't be able to track your location from tower pings. :D

First you have to find out what apps are consuming much of your battery. To find this use GSAM battery monitor, or any other similar application. Once you find out the main cause of the problem, you can easily deal with it.
