    I have tried searching for this app you have pictured here, but to no avail. I am always on the lookout for a decent (free or paid) battery consumption app and this one appears to be right up my alley.
    Seeing as how I am not the only one interested, it would be greatly appreciated by a number of us if you could tell us the name of this app.
    Thank you much!
    Its Facebook Messenger.

    That is what is circled near the top, yes. But I am wanting to know what app the screenshot is for? What app did the user install to see that Consumption screen?

    Seeing as that's his only post on AC we might be out of luck. He might be a one post wonder. I couldn't find one that looked like it in my search either,

    For those wanting to know the app used in BradSmithSC's post, it appears to be Battery Doctor by Cheetah Mobile Inc. I've been using it for a month and a half and it seems decent.

    Hope I helped.

    Thanks! The app has over 1mil downloads. Interestingly it wants to close 68 of my apps that are apparently open. Things including my launcher and calendar widget. You can add them to the ignore list, but I guess its really trying to maximize your battery life by closing everything except the base OS. Seems like my phone would stop doing just about everything I'm used to if I'd let it. Although I didn't know some of the apps were open in the background (despite a recent reboot) like my remote car starting app. I can't imagine its really using that much power, but the app says if I let it close all 68 things it will increase my battery life by 4h 30m

    It's doing the same on my wife's phone. Off the charger for 20 minutes, it has already sucked 10% off her charge.
    Sounds like her charge isn't the only thing being sucked off on Facebook.. Best take a look at that "Friends" list, broheim.

    Lol I first read this and said Google Messenger? No way, its so minimalistic and clean.

    Facebook Messenger. Yes FB Messenger is the devil. It actually just started showing up on battery monitors after the Lollipop update, but I've been telling users with battery problems about FB and its Messenger for months. It was an invisible drain for the longest time. I'm upset FB required this messenger in order to communicate through IM's on their main app, and how poorly they designed it.

    I'm a little wary of Cheetah Mobile. I've got some RAM/Memory Boost pop-up that shows up occasionally after exiting certain games on my Moto X.

    The pop up will perform the boost for free but it also has links that take you to Cheetah Mobile software on the Play store.

    I don't remember ever inviting this app on to my phone. I also cannot find an app in my app drawer that corresponds to this pop up. In fact, when I look up Cheetah Mobile on the Play Store, none of their apps show as already installed on my phone.

    Messgener: 0.1% usage and 0.7% per two different battery apps I am running.
    I use it daily, as well as on a couple of different laptops. AFAIC ... it's by far the best instant (and I do mean instant) messaging service ever. It's super fast with a load of functionality.
