While a decade ago, a cellphone on a fully charged battery battery might be good for 3 days or more of constant use, today’s smartphones are amazing battery hogs. Thanks to their ultra-detailed touch screens, GPS and other sensors, some barely last a day of moderate use. On the Tom’s Guide Battery Test, the average smartphone lasts for 8 hours and 27 minutes of Web surfing over Wi-Fi, and while that’s nothing to sneeze at it’s still often not enough.
Battery monitoring and power saving apps can remedy this, allowing users to monitor the charge state of their phone, as well as optimize their device settings to reduce power usage and increase battery life. Check out 5 of our favorite Android battery monitoring and power saving apps.

It’s kind of like Amplify in that it gives you detailed information about the applications that are waking up your device, how often they’re waking up your device, and how much time they spend once they initiate. For non-root users, you can use this information to start controlling the apps that cause problems while root users can start the Greenify service to make sure these apps stop waking up your device. It’s completely free to use, although there is an optional donate version if you want to support development.You could download the app from Playstore
