As you already know that another area of interest fro apart from satellite tv technology is mobile and computer tweaks and tutorials. In a nutshell, this site is mainly about rewarding tutorials and reviews. One major problem with the Android OS is with battery management and optimisation. Almost every Android phone user has had to tackle the menace of preventing battery-draining Android apps at one point or the others. In the course of doing this, most users had to install third party android battery savers like “power pro, avast battery saver and so on”.

While I am not criticising any of this app, I am simply using this medium to communicate it to you that you can actually save your battery from quickly draining out without installing any battery saver. Also, this can be done automatically from within your Android settings.
Over the years, many popular Android manufacturers have integrated effective battery-saving features into their phones. HTC calls his “extreme power saving mode” Samsung names it “Ultra power saving mode” Huawei also has it has “ultra power saving mode”. I can say of that of Samsung phones. Enabling the ultra power saving mode will make you be able to go days on a low battery that would otherwise have died within minutes of normal uses.
Unfortunately, there extreme power/battery saving modes are too harsh for normal use while the normal battery saving modes of little difference in battery gains. Before I teach you how you can get the best juice out of your battery, let me first point you to the most potent Android power/battery-draining apps. Some are so popular that we can hardly do without them.
Preventing battery-draining Android apps: the Major Culprits
This list is by no means exhaustive. Also, some of the apps mentioned here may be a necessary evil to some of us. For example, I can’t do without WhatsApp while I have totally uninstalled my BBM. I only use facebook lite and only once in a while. I only have an account on Snap chat for reason not known to me. Telegram is used only as my file transfer manager. and the list goes so. I only want to give us the general idea of those apps that are so demanding on your battery
TalkU let you make free and cheap phone calls to anyone over WiFi and 3G/4G data networks without using any cell minutes. You can save up to 90% comparing to your phone company. Apart from this, the app tends to be aggressive on your phone’s battery if you give it full permissions. I have disabled notifications for this app and more often than not, I force close it. In spite of all these, anytime I open it, it continues running in the background until I react. It depends on how often you require the services of this app. If you need it always, then it must be left to continue running in the background.
There are around 2 billion active monthly users on Facebook. The app often runs in the background and is very heavy. People on Android forums have reported that uninstalling the app has increased their battery life by about 17 percent. It is pretty remarkable that one app can cause that much drainage.
Facebook has tried to rectify this by splitting their high intensive app into two different apps; Facebook and Facebook Messenger Lite. Both of these apps are optimized for Android Users
This one is probably not too big of a shocker. SnapChat is a pretty high intensive app. It uses a lot of memory and computing power to process its ever growing features. Every day more and more users join the SnapChat wave. If you are not aware of SnapChat it is a social networking app that allows users to record their daily movements or achievements and upload them to either the world or their friends to see. Snaps only last for about a day and clear the minute you view them.
