Is your mobile battery draining fast and you always need to carry a bulky power bank with you? Well you can be free from this hazard for a couple of times, if you try these Battery saving apps.

Saving your Battery

With the ever increasing load of usage in our phones, the battery drains out every day, and we either need to carry a Power Bank or need to plug it on for charging whenever we get a chance, and all these are quite hazardous for our battery life. To cut short these headaches and to give a you an extra shot of battery life, now there are apps for your specific phones of different OS. As an Android user, I was looking out for one such app that can save me in bad times, especially when I am on the move and not carrying around a power bank or even can be near a charging point within a couple of hours. And I found some awesome apps that were claiming to solve this problem in a gunshot. Here's a list of these apps which were competing each other with their exclusive features and assurance. Check them out if you get a pick for yourself.

1. Greenify

Greenify is a free battery saver app for Android that is listed in the Google Play Store. The app is functional in identifying every power consuming app that is stored in your device. Once the task of identification is complete, then the app sends them into hibernation. In this way, Greenify stops these apps from eating up the battery as well as protects your device from slowing down.
To make use of Greenify, one need not root the Android device, but if the device has already been rooted then it would be working as an added advantage for the app and would definitely deliver better performance.

Features at a Glance
  • In Greenify one can keep using the Greenified apps as usual and share content with it. There is no need to freeze it or de-freeze it to make it working.

  • There is no "Autostarts", so there is no risk of getting trapped into obscure app components, and you need not fear of losing any functionality while the app is running or active.

  • There is no "XXX Task Killer", so there is not even a remote chance of any stealthy-running app and their aggressive battery killing activity that itself would consume more battery power.

Through this app it is easy to monitor the battery usage along with a time record and it would kill all the unnecessary apps that are running in the background and that consumes a large amount of battery juice.

The Verdict

Among the above listed apps I found the first one. i.e., Greenify to be working best for me. It is also an app that has earned a five star rating in almost every survey that has been taken so far. At the same time I found the other apps to be quite useful but some of them like Yellow Battery is yet to adapt some latest feature to list themselves in the first row of recommendation.
