Has it ever troubled you as when you cannot work as well as you could when you find out your smartphone battery is about to run out? You keep the phone on charging for a long time, and then you spend some time on a few apps and suddenly the battery marker is down to 35%. By the time you solve the mathematical permutations as to why that happened, you realise the battery is down to 10%, and you haven’t probably started off your day. In this article, you will find some help in this difficult situation. Some tips to help you keep your battery alive for the most part of the day. However one has to accept that battery life also depends on the smartphone’s build quality, apart from the usage. The battery of the smartphone is eaten by a lot of activities like listening to music, watching videos, playing games etc especially if online, yet some of these apps kill more fuel than others. Here is a list of a few kinds of apps which are better to be gotten rid of or at least kept in a dormant mode.
Social media apps
Major social media apps like Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram though popular, are the apps which drain the most battery in the smartphones. These apps run in the background because they are directed to send instant notifications. Even the Messenger app takes up a lot of battery.
Picture editing apps
The heavy duty picture editing apps require a lot of power and space to function. So if you are a habituated photo editor who likes to make your clicks more dramatic before sharing it with others, beware. These apps may be eating up a lot of your fuel. Even the popular edit options like Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Express have similar effects.
Battery Saver apps
Irony just drained out. It is one of the apps which keep running in the background, even if you are not using your smartphone. The purpose that these apps serve is that they keep on scanning the phone for apps which take up the maximum amount of battery to shut them down. But the fact it, in doing that these apps themselves eat up most of the energy.
Anti Virus apps
Similar to the battery apps, these Anti-virus apps, keep running in the background regularly, in order to scan the phone and quarantine the potential risks. The problem is that if there are numerous apps in your phone, this app takes a lot of time to scan them which is not good for your battery.
In some apps, there is a feature where it makes the phone click the picture of a person who snoops into your phone. Although a helpful feature, it drains a lot of battery.
It is rather heartening to lose out on gaming apps, but the fact of the matter is that they consume a lot of battery. These days games come in with a lot of graphics and resolutions, which takes up a lot of energy from your battery. Games like Mortal Combat, Asphalt, FIFA and Injustice drain the smartphone’s battery life a lot. For that matter, the latest craze, Pokemon Go is also a bigger culprit.
