    Default Juice Defender Vs. Green Power

    Juice Defender Vs. Green Power-2014-06-04-12.35.50.jpgJuice Defender Vs. Green Power-2014-06-04-12.36.01.jpg

    A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Now, as you can see my total screen on time has not been much (about 1 hour 15 minutes) as I was at work all day yesterday, however I can say that this is simply extraordinary battery life. In fact I have never seen anything like this (myself) before this. This was after installing Green Power (GP) and pretty much leaving it on the default settings (I may have messed with one or two but nothing significant). So while Juice Defender (JD) really seemed to help out, at the end of the day it couldn't hold a candle to Green Power.

    And again, the beauty of all this is that GP (or JD, for that matter) doesn't seem to affect the phone's functionality in any way whatsoever. Because GP disables WiFi and data when the screen is not on, it takes a second to establish these connections when you turn the screen back on. But only a second. Typically the connections are made and the phone is fully functional by the time you've swiped through the lock screen.

    Simply amazing is all I can say. I'm on track to get more than two days service off one charge. Hell, I don't think there's a smartphone on the market that can do that right out of the box. So, for those of you interested I'd strongly recommend that you install GP for a day or two and draw your own conclusions. Heck, if you don't like it, just uninstall it.

    Good luck

    You're more than welcome but, to be honest, the thanks go to you for providing such a superb and useful app to the android community at no charge!

    But to be honest, those aren't "real" usage specs in my eyes. I mean it shows the screen on for 7 percent - that to me is saying the device isn't being used very much. It would be good to see someone that is a moderate to heavy user (texts and other things that use the screen) using the app to see if it really helps. Most users turn their screen down to almost nothing in order to get good battery life. I refuse to cripple my device - I can go the weekend and never drop below 90 percent when I'm not using the device.

    Right now I've been on battery for 1 day, 28 minutes and I have 61% battery left. Screen time has been 14% at 1h 38m. I would say that's light to moderate real world use and I'm on track to get well over two days of use off one charge.

    Even when you not using the phone it hardly uses any juice unlike my old S3 that used to last barely 8 hours.

    I've used mine extensively since 6am - I installed Gp and my screen is at 36 percent and battery is at 82. I'd classify you at light usage.

    Has anyone tried snapdragon battery guru? It seems quite effective in preventing apps from draining battery too much with auto syncs. But it takes three days from installing to learn your phone usage pattern. Then it takes control on auto syncs with minimum input from user. don't have to do much on it.

    Do you use it? Any noticeable difference?
