5 Best Battery Saver Apps for Android in 2020

Smartphone manufacturers have finally realized that, to most people, battery life matters more than performance or display resolution. But even though smartphones with sub-3000 mAh batteries are becoming rare, we still have a long way to go until we can leave our chargers at home and go on for days without them. For now, you can use battery saver apps for Android to extend the battery life of your device, such as the top 5 best ones listed in this article.

Best Battery Saver Apps for Android

1. Greenify

Many modern apps never sleep—even when you close them. They run in the background, constantly checking for updates, displaying push messages, and receiving events from remote servers. Naturally, this takes a toll on your battery life, and the situation only gets worse the more apps you have installed on your device.

With Greenify, one of the best and most downloaded battery saver apps for Android in 2018, you can effortlessly hibernate all misbehaving apps when you’re not actively using them to stop them from leeching your battery and processing power.

Greenify works best on rooted devices, but it also supports non-rooted devices, provided you give the app administrator privileges. Greenify respects your privacy, and it never collects any personal information from your device. Because the app has already been installed over 10 million times, you can trust that it does what it promises to do.

2. Amplify

Amplify offers a different approach to battery saving compared with Greenify. Instead of suspending individual apps, Amplify controls how frequently your device can wake up to check for updates or push notifications. The main advantage of this approach is that there’s virtually no configuration to worry about. You can simply use the recommended settings and instantly enjoy a much longer battery life.

Unfortunately, Amplify only works on rooted Android devices with the Xposed Framework, which is a framework for modules that can change the behavior of the system and apps without touching any APKs. As all changes made by the Xposed Framework are done in the memory, so you just need to deactivate the module and reboot to get your original system back.

If you’ve never heard about the Xposed Framework and don’t know how to install it, we have good news for you: Amplify will install it for you.

3. LeanDroid

LeanDroid is an advanced battery saver for Android devices that extends battery life by automatically disabling Wi-Fi, cellular data, cellular radio, Bluetooth, and location services (networks and GPS). The app detects when the screen turns off and waits a while before it kills all power-hungry radios on your device. It then periodically enables them for a short while to allow push notifications to come through.

If you have a certain app that you’d like to keep running uninterrupted in the background, such as a navigation or music player, you can easily add the app to exceptions. You can also set exceptions by Wi-Fi name, Bluetooth device, and even data transfer speed. LeanDroid also integrates well with Tasker, an application for Android which performs tasks based on contexts in user-defined profiles.

4. Ice Box

Ice Box is an advanced app freezer for rooted devices. It can also be installed on non-rooted devices, but the process is so complicated that it may not be worth your time. Read this tutorial to learn how to install Ice Box on non-rooted devices.

Think of Ice Box is a special launcher for apps you don’t use very often. When you add an app to Ice Box, it will disappear from your home screen and launcher and won’t be able to steal your battery or cellular data by running in the background. To access it again, you simply open Ice Box and launch it just like you would from the home screen.

Apps in Ice Box can be protected using a fingerprint lock, and Ice Box supports Tasker just like LeanDroid does.

5. Automate

Automate isn’t a traditional battery saver app like our previous picks. Instead, it allows you to easily create automation flows using flowcharts to change basically every setting on your device, including audio volume, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, or NFC.

Automate comes with over 300 building blocks, which include actions, conditions, event triggers, loops and more. Using these pre-made building blocks, you can, for example, create an automation flow that detects that you’ve left your home and instantly turn off Wi-Fi on your device to stop your device from searching for available Wi-Fi networks.

Another example of a battery-saving automation flow could be a routine that disables all radios after, let’s say, 11 PM so you can sleep without being constantly interrupted by push notifications.
