When we buy an android phone, everyone recommends us to install a good battery saver. It will help you to enhance your battery life. But it really helps let me explain.
What a battery saving app can do?
Before installing a battery saving app we first analyze what a battery saver can do for us. Mostly Battery saving app do these things:
As we all know, Android Smartphone apps keep running in the background which continues to drain the battery life. If we don’t stop them then the phone battery will perform 20% to 30% lesser than the normal. Due to this all the battery saving utilities comes with a Ram cleaner option.
Screen backlight is a huge battery hungry source. Whenever you use high contrast or brightness for better viewing experience. It will drain the battery at a very high speed. So a battery saver will remind you to reduce screen backlight according to day time. Battery saver analyzes daylight for your backlight using light sensor and reduces it to the necessary level.
If the Light Sensor is not available on your phone then a good battery saver use your phone time to determine your daylight. And it will increase the light in the day and decrease it in the night. So it will save more battery using this smart technique.
Sound Volume & Vibration.
Unwanted sounds and vibrations also use some power of your battery. If you take care of it the phone battery can be saved more. There are many options available for different Sound volume and vibration Control: Media, Alarm, Ring, Notification, DialPad Tones, Screen Locking sound, Touch sound & Call volume etc. And Vibration on call & messages, Vibrate on touch etc. And if you use smart battery saver then it helps you to control unwanted sound volume and vibration.
Disable Unwanted running services.
We enable Data Connection, WiFi, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth, and Location service according to our need. But many times we forget to disable these then a battery saver will remind you to disable any opened feature.
Do you really need a Battery Saving app?
It totally depends on you, if you can do these all things manually then there is no need to install a battery saver. If you think a battery saver increase phone battery life, Yes it does something but not as same if you do these with manual work.
As you know if an app runs in the background then it consumes some extra battery juice. So your maximum battery drains due to background apps. And if you install another battery saver then it will also run in the background and along with some help, it will use the extra power.
