Android :: Droid Application Battery Usage Monitor?

Apr 20, 2010

I consider that my "About Phone ->battery Use" is not really accurate in my case. Can you advice me regarding another android battery usage monitor application ? I am interested in seeing the exact consumption (in percentage) of each service/application.

General :: Sprint GN2 Running 4.1.2 - Apps To Monitor Power Usage

Nov 21, 2013

I'm wondering about apps that are a little more than battery power monitors. I'd like something that will show me the apps that are running and taking up the most memory and causing the biggest power drains on my phone.

Something that would log this so I could look it over during the week and get an overall view and make decisions on what to keep and what to erase.

I'm thinking something that would show me what apps I used, how long they were running, how much memory they took up, how much battery power was used, etc.

Is there such an app out there? I'm wanting to look at the differences between the free apps and paid apps to see if it makes a difference also.

I'm running a Sprint GN2 currently 4.1.2. I haven't gotten the update yet.

HTC EVO 4G :: 10 Hour Life - Graph Of Battery Usage

Jun 2, 2010

I propose that we all post our battery life graph like the one I am about to post below. This way we can look at these claims in scrutiny, and perhaps figure out why it is that some people's Evos seem to last longer than others. Here is a graph of my Evo's Battery Charge over 1 day:

Wake up at 7:30am to disconnect the charger, listen to Pandora on the car to work until I arrive at 8am. Idles until lunch time at 12pm. Use the Evo to read up on some news at lunch until 1:30pm. Listen to Pandora while working until 5pm. Drive home while listening to Pandora in the car. Battery starts giving warning indications while driving, and phone dies when I get home at 6pm. Very usual day, and matches what the battery charge graph shows. The top apps of the day are:

System Processes contains mediaserver (2.4% due to Pandora), akmd (0.3% accelerometer polling), and everything else is <0.1%. As you can see I barely used my phone during the day for anything but Pandora. So based on my data, I'd say that the normal battery life for the Evo is under 10 hours. My settings are: no 4g, no wifi, no bluetooth, yes gps, yes bckgrnd data, auto brightness, no live wallpaper, yes taskmanager (ATK, set to "safe" setting. Will probably get rid of this..), no friend stream, no flickr.

I'd love to see other people post up their Battery Usage graphs as well. The App used is "SystemPanel App / Task Manager", available for free in the market. Go into Settings and allow it to Monitor. The screenshots were made by ShootMe, also available in the market.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Battery Life Vs Usage

Aug 8, 2010

However, this simply has not been my experience at all, I get a couple of days out of my SGS whereas some others report only getting a day.

I just thought it would be interesting for us to post in here how much battery life we are getting for the amount of use we put the phone to.

There must be some sort of pattern.

My usage:

anywhere between 10 - 30 texts per day.
Several emails - sending and recieving.
a few phonecalls.
30 Minutes of gaming.
Twitter.
Live wallpaper running.
BBC News widget running and Weatherbug widget running.
I also listen to some music but this varies day by day.
3G and HSPDA are left on constantly as is my wireless.
GPS is turned off.

Thats my usage and i get at least a day and a half. Would be interesting to compare...

HTC Magic :: SD Card - CPU Usage And Battery Life

Dec 14, 2009

When my SD card is mounted in my Magic, the CPU usage is very high (90%+), the battery is very warm (34 degrees +) and it drains the battery very quickly (dead in 10 hrs with very min use).

When the SD card is unmounted or removed, the CPU usage drops to 10% or below, the phone is cool and the battery lasts very long.

Does anyone know the reason behind this and how it can be resolved?

I've reformatted the SD card and removed some of the media files not supported by my Magic but still have this issue.

HTC Desire :: Battery Life - Breakdown Of Usage

Sep 27, 2010

We've all heard the horror stories (I just bought my Desire and the battery lasts for about 4 hours!) and the fanboy wankery (I get at least 3 days of heavy use!) So today I unplugged my Desire at about 6am and set off for work. It's 7pmish now and here's some stuff you may like to look at. I have 3G disabled, Sync on manual, no "live" widgets (just WiFi and bluetooth) live wallpaper (nexus) and screen brightness on auto. Here's the battery status (rounded up from 25% according to Battery Info in the Testing app)

The breakdown of usage:
My phone was idle for 9 hours and 45 mins:
The Display was on for a mere 2hours and 46 mins
With only 1.5 hours of WiFi:
And 30 mins of calls:
So, that'll be less than 3 hours of usage.

Motorola Droid X :: 100% CPU Usage - Performance - Battery Life

Nov 5, 2010

My X recently (within the last week) started having extremely poor battery performance under the same usage conditions as the previous week (K-9 syncs every 15 min, maybe 2 texts per hour, 2-3 emails per hour, maybe 5 total minutes of phone use). After 4 hours, the battery would be at 20-30%

To make matters worse, most functions were extremely slow to respond (contact loading, test message loading, recent calls, bookmarks, any scrolling was choppy, etc.) The delay when trying the most basic things (opening the browser, making a call) was getting unbearable.

I started backtracking the changes in the last week. Although I started tinkering with Google's App Inventor over three weeks ago, that's where I focused. I uninstalled all App Inventor programs, including the Eyes-Free Text to Speech engine. This engine was recommended by Google to do things like read text messages in the Apps you create.

Still no luck.

I decided to investigate the battery use a little more. In Battery Manager, I found that "Android System" was using about 70% of my battery. I was typically used to seeing things like "display" at the top.

I have an app called Android System Info. This showed my CPU usage pegged at 100% (even after a reboot). It never got lower than 99%. The biggest CPU hog was "Android System" at 75-80%, consistently.

This App has a tab to view the log, and I noticed several recurring error messages in the log. They were occurring at the rate of about 180 times per second! The error? "Invalid TTS Engine" Well, the TTS is controlled by the "Android System". The "Android System" was constantly trying to load the uninstalled TTS engine.

I went into "Settings...Voice input and output", and, although the Eyes Free TTS engine wasn't available, the default TTS was not set. I checked the box to have the native TTS as the default, and checked the box for "Always use my settings".

Everything immediately went back to normal. CPU usage is now around 10-20%, and "Display" is back at the top of my battery hogging functions.

Battery life is back to over 10 hours, and the delays are gone.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Foryo Battery Life And Usage Display

Nov 6, 2010

Since installing Froyo, and also doing a factory reset, my battery life seems much worse.

Also when I check what has been using the battery there are not as many apps displayed, typically just 'Display' and 'Cell Standby' even though I have used the web browser, wifi and Angry Birds.

Maybe the battery needs recalibrating with the new firmware?

Samsung Galaxy S :: Battery Life And Phone Usage Profile

Jul 1, 2010

I'd like to know the opinions various Galaxy S users have about this phone's battery life and their usage profile. I'd appreciate if you can provide me the following information:

1/ How long does the battery charge last between charges?

2/ What is your approximate phone usage profile during a day?
(Eg. 2hrs of browsing over wifi, 1 hour of browsing over 3G, 1 hour of video playback, 2 hours of audio playback/streaming while browsing etc.)

3/ Other useful information (Eg. signal conditions - poor 2G/3G coverage around my office)

Android :: Application Memory Usage Monitor

Jun 8, 2010

I am trying to get the memory usage for every application at different periods of time. I have checked the docs / threads / forums, and i only found that you can get the total available memory value, but i could not find in the sdk an api call for getting the memory used by a single application. I know that one way to do this is by reading the values from /proc/ <pid> virtual file system but this is painful for the device cpu. Can you help me figure out how to solve this problem ? Or does anyone know how settings -> applications -> manager applications read the memory usage values.

General :: How The Apps Affect Battery Usage

Dec 11, 2012

how the Apps affect Battery usage. I'm using a Note 2 with the latest OS.

So, I wanted to know if the apps are still using battery power when I switch screens? When I press the center (home) button, it shows me thumbnail list of all the apps, areas I've been to or used. I can select and remove them from the list. I am wondering if they are still using battery power until I remove them from the list. If this does tend to use extra battery power, is there an app out there that will definitely turn off the app when I am not using it?

I just don't know how Android manages Memory/power. It just seems that I can watch my battery power decrease, even when it's not being used.

Motorola Droid :: GPS Apps And Battery Life

Apr 22, 2010

I'm going on a hike this weekend and thought it'd be a good time to test out either Google Tracks or CardioTrainer to see elevation gain, time, speed, etc. The hike should last about 4 hours. How will my battery hold up with the GPS on the whole time? Assuming these apps have the GPS constantly draining the battery, which I imagine they do.

Motorola Droid :: Apps To Estimate Battery Life

Apr 4, 2010

I have been playing around with two applications that have widgets to show estimated battery life left.At one point, they seemed to show times that were pretty close but after updating to 2.1 they were off a bit. I am guessing 2.1 might have changed (hopefully improved) battery life and that caused calibration issues.I am just looking for any feedback from the community about which of these two apps they prefer, or if there are others I should look into. Of course, two of my main concerns are

1) I don't want an app that drains the battery

2) accuracy is important.

HTC Incredible :: Maximizing Battery Life / Closing Apps

Sep 1, 2010

I've had my htc incredible for a few days and I absolutely love it. However, I am less than pleased with the battery life. I run a good amount of apps and widgets and am sure this is causing the life to drain. I downloaded ATK in order to close apps when not in use, but I've noticed a strange occurrence. It seems that w/i 10 minutes of closing unneeded apps a bunch of programs that I have not been using open up. Is there any explanation for this? Also, is there a way to immediately close an app when I'm done using it rather than having to find the ATK widget?
