Battery Statistic on Android-powered Device Report

A couple of weeks back, we released Battery Stats Plus on XDA Developer forums and received a lot of positive feedbacks. Today, we release "Battery Statistic on Android-powered Device Report" thank to our beloved users who help us to achieve our dream - making a most complete battery-related database for Android devices and applications. 
Enjoying advantages of Android smartphone including interactive games, cloud-based applications, many device owners scare of battery lifetime. It runs out rapidly after a couple of hours playing games. However, for some reason, no game is played and battery drains rapidly. It's properly because device's mal-configuration or background applications thank to Android parallelism.


In this report, we show top 15 battery friendly devices and top 15 battery killer devices based on average battery lifetime, and distribution of battery lifetime. Data is reported by users using Battery Stats Plus over 263 Android-based models and 1812 battery statistic reports during last three weeks. A device may report more than once, but it should wait for at least one day for the next report. In this report, we aggregated only models which had at least 3 reports for top devices. The average battery lifetime is 21.6 hours.

Use Wi-Fi instead of 3G to save Android battery life

If you have unlimited data over 3G so that cost is no option, which is more power efficient? Using the WiFi or 3G connection for data usage? Extending battery life being the goal (ignore LTE for now)

As Matthew Read mentions, the hardware, your location, and the other fiddly bits about actual communication are important to the discussion. But, you also need to consider what you're doing with the phone.

Are you retrieving largish amounts of data often? If so, Wifi may be less drain on the battery by letting you finish sooner - remember the screen drains power while you're waiting for 3G to finish what

Adjust Auto-Sync to save power juice

You can configure synchronization options for any of your apps. You can also configure what kinds of data you synchronize for each account. Some apps, such as Gmail and Facebook, Calendar, have separate synchronization settings that provide more fine-grained control. In such cases, the settings you select at the account level are still valid.

For some accounts, syncing is two-directional; changes that you make to the information on your device are made to the copy of that information on the web. Your Google Account works this way. Other accounts support only one-way sync: the information on your mobile device is read-only.

To view the Accounts & sync settings screen described here:
  1. From a Home or All Apps screen, touch the Settings icon .
  2. Under Personal, touch Accounts & sync.
Some apps also have their own settings related to syncing. For example, to control message syncing in the Gmail app, touch Menu icon> Label settings > Sync messages.

Most Android devices will already be set to automatically adjust your screen brightness depending on how much light your Android device’s light sensor detects, but since everyone is different, you may not want your have your brightness dimmed at a particular time, thus making it important to know how to manually adjust it.

Android Battery Saver Tips

Battery usage on all so called “smart phones” is almost universally woeful. Big high-res colour screens, fast processors, sound, wifi and 3g networking all consume gobs of battery power.

Here are some battery saving tips for Android phones. I’m going on a long flight in a few days time so I’ll be trying these tips out before I go!
  • Go into Settings->About phone->”Battery use” to see what’s chewing up your battery. You can use our Battery Stats Plus app to detect battery draining apps as well as see detail battery statistics
  • Turn off haptic feedback. That’s vibration alerts when you press your screen. Turn off vibration as a notification too.
