Android™ Battery Life Tests

AVG Cleaner for Android sports battery-saving techniques, including the ability to turn off power-sapping features and adapt your device’s power consumption based on where you are and what you’re doing. Let’s see what our app was able to achieve in real-world scenarios and on real-world devices.

While playing a 3D game

We used one of the most graphically intensive games on the Google Play store, Asphalt 8, to measure how long it took until our devices’ batteries ran dry – with and without AVG Cleaner for Android!

Results: Due to the heavy workload performed by the graphics chip, the battery on all three devices ran dry rather quickly. On the Galaxy S5®, we saw the biggest improvement once we activated all the power-saving features of AVG Cleaner: it ran the game for exactly 7 hours, compared to 6 hours without our app.

While watching
an HD movie

Next, we ran a 1080p (Full HD) movie in constant loop on all three devices to experience the benefits.

Results: Again, the Samsung Galaxy S5 benefitted the most from our power-saving functionality, mainly because we used it to automatically turn off all non-essential features and reduce screen brightness to 25%. With the movie playing, the S5 lasted roughly 13 hours instead of just 7 hours and 30 minutes.

While browsing the web

Next, we used Peacekeeper’s™ web browsing benchmark on a continuous loop until the battery ran dry. Peacekeeper simulates loading a variety of different websites, videos and dynamic elements.

Results: As you can see, we were able to surf between 7% and 15% longer on the S3 and the Moto G. However, the S5 benefitted the most, as its battery lasted 9 hours 35 minutes instead of 7 hours 27 minutes while browsing.

a 1-month-old Samsung Galaxy S5. To check out all our tests, procedures and how we optimized these systems,
