    You have to download best task killer to avoid drain out the charging. In android devices apps active while device idle. So task killers kill the apps when device idle & screen off to save battery life . So better to download the best task from android market .

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    Yes android consumes more battery as compared to other mobile OS. But only when you compare to Non-smartphone's OSes. Main reason behind more battery consumption is Android phones and most of other leading smartphones OSes like iOS ,symbian (ex Nokia Lumia) and BADA OS (ex Samsung Wave III) uses internet data automatically in background and always synced to internet services. Also most of apps are running in background which consumes more battery.
    So, due to its high end hardwares and features android phones required more battery usage in compare to other mobiles OSes.

    We can reduce battery consumption a little by simply deactivating background sync and killing apps running in background.

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    yes android really sucks at battery .it drains battery like water.
    this is because of large number of background tasks run in android even we cant kill them ,they all are system tasks.
    if you use mobile all the time then android is not at all preferable .

    No battery back up of android phone is not poor.Its up to you how you use it.
    If you keep using it without even aim then battery will drain.In Android phone lots of apps run which require lead to drain battery.But if you close those apps in your phone the battery will be fine.There are few things which you should keep in mind so that you can increase the battery life.Use internet when it requires,don't use social networking site every time,switch off GPS as well as WIFI,play lees games,switch off 3 G as well as 2G on it when require those things,
    Keep low your brightness.

    Yes , Android consumes more battery as compared to other Mobile OS, but you can download task killer which are available in the market ,for smooth functioning and less loads on battery. Also you have to take some precaution while using the phone
    Don’t keep your phone attached to charger when battery is already 100%.Close the unwanted apps running in the background. Also “OFF “ Bluetooth and data connection when not in use. Keep background brightness at the normal

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    Battery life depends on the usage of a device. Many applications take a huge amount of power so drains out battery in short span. Different apps such as arcade games, GPS takes a heavy toll on batterry. So it depends on the applications you are running that decides battery. To make battery last for long you must not run a number of applications simultaneously. Turn off unused wireless options, Media, Syncing and use judiciously so you will get a longer battery life.

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    Yup, Android consumes more battery than the other operating systems. The obvious reason is that there are many background apps that constantly keep running in the background. To solve these issues android developers have designed many apps called task killers that terminate the background apps and keep the battery live longer... Try Battery Defender..

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    hi friend,

    I think your friends are right that the battery backup of android phones are not so good .....
    it is because there are various applications running on the android phones like
    FACEBOOK , GMAIL, PLAY STORE , INTERNETetc and many more apps

    but you can increase your battery backup as very less people knows that
    there are many applications running in the your mobile at the sametime ....

    this happens when we donot exit any application and just minimize the application
    so these application will also consume the battery as these are running in your mobile...
    so there is a application ADVANCED TASK KILLER that you can download from
    android market which automatically kills all the running applications that we are
    not using....

    morever you can save the battery of your mobile by switching off your WI-FI,
    BLUETOOTH , INTERNET when you are not using them......and changing the screen
    brightness as per requirement you can save the battery ....

    I have HTC EXPLORER mobile and I am using INTERNET , FACEBOOK , PLAYSTORE and all
    other things and still my mobile works the whole day easily .....

    so I suggest you to go for android mobile .....

    best of luck......

    yes it does..its little bit on a higher side but if we compare all the user friendliness and nice graphics as compared to symbian it really worth it.
    we can save the battery by using easy task killer,open advanced task killer etc.

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    There was no gadget that may consume much power than the other.
    The only difference was that it depends on the user and the way he uses the gadget.
    AS the OS and the APPS contains many graphics so the power consumption will be more automatically.
    You should not turn on your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi unnecessarily as they consume much power.
    The use of the apps like Facebook, Google. G mail etc.,.. will increase the power consumption automatically.
    By having the apps like task killer, and by decreasing the back light time, brightness etc.,.. may increase the battery backup
    So it was advisable to have the apps for as less time as you can.
    Hope this will be helpful to you............

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?




    hey friend ..

    The battery backup is the thing which depends on the usage of the phone only..
    All phones give good battery backup in the beginning but then when the usage increases day by day the battery backup decreases ..
    But it also depends us how we use and maintain the battery of the phone ...

    You can try out some of the points to increase your battery life...:

    - The brightness of the phone should be kept as low as possible in which you think can adjust to operate the phone normally

    - Also the vibration of the phone is one thing which consumes the battery more .. so , if you think you dont need the vibration facility then do check it and make it off...

    - Try to keep your phone in power saver mode or sleep mode should be activated...

    - Bluetooth and GPS are the features which should be turned off when not in use...

    - Unnecessary apps being opened in the background also consumes battery ... So , close them when not in use ...

    thanks

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    In general, yes Android takes up more battery..
    its because it uses many processes in background..
    If you know your way around Android.. you can easily shut down the unnecessary processes..
    take care of few point to minimise the battery usage..
    turn off Packet Data, Bluetooth, wifi, 3G usage.. while you are not using the services.. it eats up a lot of battery..
    use auto-brightness to minimize the brightness when phone is not active..
    Always close the apps after use.. background running of the apps also consumes battery..
    other than this.. you can use Battery apps to efficiently use battery and Task Killer to terminate the apps that are not active..

    Dear...

    It depends what kind of apps and software's you are using.
    If you are playing HD Games, using animated apps, software, wallpapers, screensavers, then it will consume the battery and drain quickly.
    Through this, the life span of your battery gets shorter and shorter.
    Avoid the things and use battery savings apps and settings in your phone.

    thanks

    hi,
    yes,android phones do consume a bit more battery life than others.But you can control it....android processor has got many apps which run by itself.antivirus,builtin app,smooth touch experience all needs battery life more than any other phones.
    updates are checked from time to time..so naturally it would reqiure more battery life.......but you can control it by disabling updates,deleting unwanted apps.
    after doin that i am sure you will be convinced enough!!!best of luck

    Dear friend,

    No, it is not so. It is just a rumor about Android Smartphones.

    If you are running unnecessary apps in the background, then definitely it will consume much battery in the Smartphone.

    So, you must install an app like Task Killer that should display background running programs, so that you can easily terminate those unnecessary programs.

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    Yes, Android phones consumes more battery as compared to other Mobiles OS. This is so because many apps keep on working even if your device is kept idle and you are not using it.And to make them stop working you need to turn them off time to time, and that consumed your time.So, to avoid your time consumption you can just install a task killer from the andriod market which will avoid your battery to drain soon.But whatever it is, Andriods consumes more battery as compared to other Mobiles OP.

    Re: Does Android Consumes More battery as compared to other Mobile OS?

    Well ,every good thing comes with a limitation.and so does apply to android phones.
    as android phones are fast , ever evolving and compatible with many apps , they come with a limitation of battery-life.
    the phone provides multitasking operation , which consuumes a lot of battery , so making the battery life small.

    but there are ways to get optimum battery life from your android phone.
    you can firstly lower down the brightness, which is the main cause of low battery back-up.
    you should avoid running multiple apps , at the same time.
    and close/exit the apps , after use.


    good luck
