Which Android apps drain your battery life? The answer might surprise you. AVG Technologies’ latest report on Android apps that eat into battery life, data plan and data storage includes popular Candy Crush, Facebook and Tumblr. It also identifies Samsung Security Policy Update and Samsung Beaming Service as two of the worst offenders.
AVG rates apps based on highest battery drain, data traffic and storage consumption, as well as overall performance impact. Three charts – overall apps, games and auto-start apps – compare applications side by side.
While users can manage bandwidth and storage, the report emphasizes that device manufacturers should make battery conservation a priority.
