There are so many Applications installed in the Android smartphones that many of them consume a lot of battery without the user realizing it.

Therefore, the storage company in the cloud pCloud conducted a study that examined some frequently downloaded Android apps on these devices and discovered which ones cause massive battery usage, so that at least users can take this more into account.

Surely, many readers have had those times where they tried to find any way for the cell phone last all day on. And it is also that, a few years ago, batteries were not as large as they are now, although it is true that at that time there was not as much space and apps as today.

Anyone who uses your smartphone daily knows that the battery usually lasts one or two days, ignoring the consumption of Youtube or series and movies on platforms like Netflix either hbo max. Therefore, a total of 100 applications and the battery usage has been verified, in addition to all the usage rights allowed by an application, which slowly use the battery without one noticing.

The apps that consume the most battery

No need to be scared, but the big problem comes now since all the named apps, or almost all, the readers of this note will recognize and probably already have installed.

To make it easier, Infobae has separated them into categories:

1. Sports

Unfortunately for the sportiest, Fitbit reports the highest battery drain, and for good reason.

Of the 16 background processes and permissions analyzed by PCloud, Fitbit was able to run 16 of them in the background of the phone, and according to the report, four of those processes have the biggest impact on battery consumption.

On the other hand, pCloud also discovered that Grindr, Tinder Y bumble they also allowed 11 functions to run in the background.
