The Snapdragon BatteryGuru app has finally moved from beta to release, after having been in the former since February this year.
Snapdragon BatteryGuru promises to maximize the battery life of smartphones through an “intelligent” method. The app first takes a two-to-four-day period to observe the smartphone user’s activities and behavior. After this, it makes adjustments in settings that would allow the battery life to be extended without sacrificing the functionality of the device. The app, for example, can turn on or turn off Wi-Fi by taking note of Wi-Fi hotspots. Once the hotspots are identified, it will be able to turn on Wi-Fi only when one is in range of a hotspot. Wi-Fi is one of the factors that drain smartphone batteries because it is constantly trying to look for a signal. After making some tweaks in the settings, BatteryGuru continues to take note of patterns in the user’s activities, and goes on to adjust settings where necessary.
Everything in Snapdragon BatteryGuru’s battery-saving process is automatic. They are dependent on the observations that the app gathers from the smartphone user. Thus, users do not have to worry about making decisions regarding the smartphone’s settings, or trying to remember the various ways by which one can save battery life. The app, running in the background, can take care of these without intervention from the smartphone user.
Snapdragon BatteryGuru is supported by almost all devices running on a Snapdragon processor. It has a file size of 4.3M and requires Android 4.0 or higher in order to work. To date, it has received a rating of 4.0 out of 5 stars from reviewers. Among the languages that are supported by such app are Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, German, Italian, French, Turkish, Japanese, and Chinese.
Snapdragon BatteryGuru is available for downloading free of charge from Google Play.
