Battery life is always a huge concern with any smartphone. If you’re not careful, especially with Android devices, you can wind up with quite a few applications running in the background, which drains battery.
Several smartphones now come with built-in software to optimize battery life. For those that don’t, Qualcomm released Snapdragon BatteryGuru, an Android application that monitors what’s going on behind the scenes on your phone, and adjusts your phone’s settings to maximize battery life.
The app has received over 100,000 downloads since its debut in beta February of this year, and is officially launching Tuesday.
The app learns your personal phone behaviors, and then devises ways to optimize battery performance based on those behaviors.
For instance, leaving on the Wi-Fi can drain battery power, as your phone is constantly searching for a Wi-Fi network for connection. BatteryGuru learns your most frequently used Wi-Fi hotspots, and then enables Wi-Fi when you’re around.
Android apps often refresh more than necessary, which adversely effects battery life. BatteryGuru pays attention to app usage patterns, then refreshes your apps based on those patterns. This ensures apps are updated when you need them to be — but aren’t draining battery when you don’t want them to.
Lots of little tweaks ultimately leave you with a little more juice at the end of the day.
You can download BatteryGuru for free now from Google Play for the majority of Snapdragon-powered devices, including smartphones created by Samsung, Motorola, HTC, LG and Sony.
Nice app that managing and monitoring the battery usage on different app. Worth trying to get your phone more juice!!
