Do You Know These Apps are Killing Your Battery?
We are using tons of applications now a days for some different but obvious reasons, I guess. But did you ever think that these apps might be Killing Your Battery?
Am pretty sure you’ll be and that’s good but if you don’t then this article can be a savior for you. But before moving to this article in detail I’ll recommend you to go through these previous artciles; in case you missed–
Even as our smartphone batteries have gotten bigger, larger screens and more demanding apps mean battery life has remained in the “disappointing” range. Considering how much we rely on our smartphones, it’s no wonder that we’re all carrying around charging cables and backup batteries. But in some cases, the apps we choose to use may be responsible for our smartphone woes.
Though you may not realize it, some of your favorite apps are probably eating into your battery life—and your data plan and storage space. So how do we stop these power-hungry apps from ruling over our phones? The first step is to know what they are. To identify the worst offenders, security software firm AVG’s App.
Performance and Trends Report collected data from three million Android users to find out which apps were dragging Android smartphones down. And are also available for iPhone. AVG breaks problem apps down into apps that run when you power your phone up and apps you launch yourself.
If you just can’t keep your smartphone battery going.
These top ten battery-hogging apps running in the background could be your problem:
- Samsung AllShare (now Samsung Link)
- Samsung Security Policy Update
- Beaming Service for Samsung
- Google Maps
- BBM (BlackBerry Messenger)
The first three are automatically installed on select Samsung smartphones, and they’re the names you’re least likely to recognize.
The list of top 10 battery-draining apps that you have to actively click to run:
- Samsung WatchON
- Microsoft Outlook
- LINE: Free Calls & Messages
- Clean Master
- Amazon Shopping
- Super-Bright LED Torch
- BBC iPlayer
- PicsArt Photo Studio
Your most power-hungry apps may be different from AVG’s list. On your Android device, go to Settings > Device > Battery or Settings > Power > Battery to see what’s using your smartphone’s battery—and then decide whether you really need to use that app as much as you do.
So there we have it, I hope these suggestions will help you save battery on your device in future. Have you discovered any battery killing apps that aren’t on this list? Let us know in the comments.
