More often than not, Android users feel they deserve a better battery life on their phones. It’s true, but you also have a role to play in making your battery last a little longer.
AVG says it got its data from over one million AVG Android app users, and created an exclusive list of apps that drain phone’s battery and use-up your precious data.
You may not like the list if you are the dating kind of person because social networking and chat apps are the biggest threat to your smartphone battery life. Now we are getting somewhere. lol..
Let me say again that this is not our report, but a report from AVG. So if you really want to save-up a little percentage of your Android battery life, you are better off taking this list seriously.
