These 20 Popular Apps are the Worst

There are many apps that put a particularly heavy strain on your smartphone battery. Here is the list of the top 20 culprits.

In principle, cell phones now have large batteries that should last for a day or more. There are also some simple ways to extend the life of a cell phone’s battery, such as turning off WiFi / Bluetooth and getting the most out of power saving mode.

And yet there are a number of apps that are able to significantly reduce this potential battery life. Above all, they reduce the battery level by performing services in the background and thus permanently sucking the battery empty.

The Uswitch portal has now published the results of a study, according to which some of the most frequently used apps play a major role in the unusually fast discharge of the battery. According to the report, the applications with the highest battery charges are the ones that need constant background updates in order to function. According to the report, Google, Facebook (plus Messenger) and WhatsApp are the “greatest burden on our batteries”.

Side Effects of Some Apps

For example, Facebook runs constantly in the background and accesses a large number of authorizations. Amazon’s Alexa app ranks fifth (with 39 required permissions). The apps from Uber, Waze, Google Chrome, and YouTube filled the rest of the top 10.

In general, it can be said that social media apps such as Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat have a major impact, as they use notification and location services to report the user’s location in real time. The lion’s share of app activity runs in the background – syncing updates, contacts, and many other background processes. In addition, the chat and video functions of the apps are very complex and accordingly consume a lot of battery. This tip is helpful here: Switch off location services and unnecessary notifications from the apps if you don’t absolutely need them – this applies in particular to the so-called “wake screen”.

Uswitch also tested popular applications to determine how long they could be used before the battery was completely discharged. The worst result in the category was delivered by the TikTok app, which drained the battery in an average of 7 hours and 48 minutes.

So if your mobile phone really struggles to last a full day, it might be worth reducing the number of apps – or deleting any culprits completely. Uswitch’s analysis relates to a total of 50 popular apps. These were rated according to their needs and the respective battery usage.

TECHNOLOGY BUTTON Advises

If you are tired of having to charge your phone several times a day or want to save your battery for other reasons, you should avoid using the apps listed, at least restrict them or at least reduce the number of voracious apps a little. But battery saving is also possible without restricting the apps. If you don’t always have to or don’t want to be available, you should switch to airplane mode whenever possible. Whether driving or at work. Because the constant connection to the cellular network still costs a large part of the battery charge!

I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe

I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering
problems with your blog. It appears as if some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and
let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem
with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
