Hello all,

For some reason, I can't read the reviews on Google Play today, so I was hoping to get some answers here. I'm looking to install a battery management app to my S3. I'm having some battery issues (I think it's the charger, but I'm trying to investigate).

I found these 4 apps as top rated on Google, but wanted your opinion on them:

Power Battery Saver
Easy Battery Saver
Battery Doctor
JuiceDefender

I can't tell if they're paid or not (browser seems to be messed up, and my phone isn't with me). Are these apps like blackberry "profiles"? I.e., I can set a "at home" profile to turn on WiFi and data etc, or "driving" profile to keep everything off, or just keep bluetooth on. or a "meeting" profile to turn everything off etc.

I read that they are quiet detailed.

Thanks for all the tips!

It is my opinion that most battery savers at best do nothing for your battery. If you would really like to save battery check out this: http://forums.androidcentral.com/general-help-how/298919-guide-battery-saving-tips.html

Instead, how about fully charging, and right before you plug it back in for another charge (dropping to about 25%) take screenshots of your battery stats and the graph, and posting them?

All 4 of those apps that you listed are free to download and they all allow you to set "profiles" or "schedules" that turn on and off certain features during specific times or at certain locations to conserve battery. I personally use battery doctor and like it. It looks very professional and gives me a pretty accurate approximation of how much battery power I have left as well as keeps track of what apps drain my battery the most.
