Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru Reviews

Scott Daker - Uses more power with this app installed!

Ive had this app installed 4 6 weeks,plenty of time 2 decide that the standard power save mode on my HTC One uses less power! The app itself is a great idea,with sum good power saving features,it just uses 2 much power wen my phone is inactive in my pocket! I'm going 2 uninstall it 4 obvious reasons!

Julius Philip Cruz - CyanogenMod 10.1 Stable Problem

Whenever i set a theme in CyanogenMod then reboot my Nexus 4, the Android System reports that "Unfortunately the BatteryGuru has stopped" please fix this issue because this is really annoying. Note that this issue also happens on this version.

Robert Zakowski - Battery drain

For some reason this app drained half of my battery in an hour

Michael Lauzon - Reverts Settings Back To Defaults; NOT IMPRESSIVE!

EDIT: In regards to BG 1.7.0. Well, I am now giving it one star, because it's now reverting everything to the default settings "Saves battery, refreshes when you need it" -- which is what I have Gmail & Contacts set to; everything else is set to "Uses minimal battery, refreshed when used" -- when the phone is inactive for a while, and because of that the battery drains. Also, turning on the Wifi whenever it senses access points nearby is a PITA, because it drains the battery if you don't know it's turned on! =============================================================================== ORIGINAL POST (June 26, 2013): I've installed BG v1.5.1 on my Samsung Galaxy S4, and it's resetting itself to the defaults after I turn the phone back on, it wasn't doing that last week, I did do a factory reset due to something killing the battery and BG couldn't stop it, a factory reset did. But now, BG just resets the settings I choose for it.

Jose H Valenzuela - Turned on my wifi while sleeping... Crazy..

Yeah you are reading right, this BS turned on my wifi twice while I was sleeping and did the same to my wife, we don't use mobile data, battery saving?? More like battery drainer, even the crappiest algorythm would turn off wifi during sleep, and by no means should it turn it on....

jason swinton - Not for power users.

Perhaps this works for light use, but as a data sucking sprint s4 power user who already manages his own features, this app took significant life off of my battery as soon as the learning period was over. Significant. Uninstalled.

Eugenio Angueira - Not much of a guru

On my Nexus 4 this thing became a battery hog! I was shocked to see my battery get drained to 50% in 2 hours. When I checked what was consuming the battery, 87% was from this app. Crazy. Not sure why it had the opposite effect but it doesn't get any good rating from me.

Bryan T - Not sure

After the hype of waiting four days for the app to analyze my usage, I thought this might be for real. But I've been using it for a week and notice no savings in battery. Smart Actions or Juice Defender seem to work much better. It has yet to offer any tips for saving battery. I'll give it another week but so far my battery is worse than it was with the other battery saving apps. Hasn't done anything. Uninstall

Marc Lieberman - Yikes!

WARNING! Will drain your battery in about 6 hours in training mode because it runs the gps constantly. Maybe I'll try again when that bug is fixed.

Date: Device: Version 1.5.1 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Chris Thompson - Sucks.

Does not work. Just made battery life worser. Did the learning mode and its like it made whatever is running consume more energy. Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket on Cyanogen Mod 10.

Mark Loy - Facebook

Having issues with Facebook after instilling app. Can't like our comment on post, using nexus 4.

Date: Device: Version 1.5.1 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Angela Kaminski - Drained battery

After the"learning" curve, my battery drained faster than before. Doesn't do anything but hype and take room. Long time user of gadgets, not a newbie. Uninstalling

Date: Device: Version 1.5.0 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Stan Velijev - The placebo is strong in this one

The people saying this helped prolong their life while watching/recording video - that isn't what this app does, it modifies how apps are used when the screen is off. And on that end, I've had the phone suck out 50% battery like with the screen off over about 10 hours. Doing nothing. I never had an app negatively effect my battery life that much.

Rarl Liersch - Unable to use

Could not download due to a 403 error

Date: Device: Version 1.5.0 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Cedric Garalde - Still very buggy

The app stopped my charging when I try to charge my phone or will always say fully charge when it's not... Making this app unusable..

Date: Device: Version 1.5.0 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Andy Williams - It's a joke

Wi-Fi stays on all the time. All sync checkboxes staying checked. I have no idea what this app is supposed to do now except generate wakelocks. App description is ambiguous-no Android or Linux terminology. I'd expect something more serious from an embedded chip designer. At my first job if someone complained that their computer was slow he'd say he was going to spoof their memory, punch a few keys and then walk away. This app says it controls app refreshes- a made up term I guess.

James Conant - Ridiculous

Cannot use app unless you allow location (GPS) fix this, then I'll re-review!

Date: Device: Samsung Galaxy S3 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Serg k - Not happy

Why you need to know my location? You must enable location service to get this app to work. WTF? Disable that s$%^# Too many apps nowdays required this. Really hate that!

Date: Device: Version 1.4.0 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Eric Hidle - Permissions

App wants too many permissions it doesn't need. Spyapp.

Date: Device: HTC One X using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Scott Strautmann - Meh

It's been 5 days so far and still in learning mode. update; got rid of it because it said its paused for WiFi even when WiFi was off.

Date: Device: Version 1.3.1.08 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Jesse Graffius - Cut battery life

This increased my battery usage by at least 20%. I'd rather go back to turning off my Wi-Fi when I don't need it.

Date: Device: Version 1.3.1.08 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


John Zampier - Worse battery life for heavy users

Installed and removed 4 times in the past 6 weeks. Found that I get ~20% better battery life when I do not have it installed. Phone is consistently higher temp when running. Tries to turn on WiFi again after I just turned it off. I am a constant heavy user. Running bluetooth audio ~7 hrs a day. -RAZR HD

Date: Device: Version 1.3.1.08 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Maxim Tyutyunnikov - Useless

It does nothing I couldn't do myself. For example it harms your battery life by turning WiFi on on its own when you don't need it.

Nebojsa Zdravkovic - Turns off syncing

App turned off syncing for most of my gmail accounts silently, so battery was indeed doing better. I am sure it would have been greater if I had shut down the phone completely. Wifi was still on searching for networks I never connect too. After turning the sync back on, batt life was worse than with juice defender. Disappointing.

Rob Kampa - Sucks

Sucks down battery

Date: Device: Version 1.3.1.08 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Hassaan Ahmed - What battery life..?

It takes about one week to learn and then starts to drain your battery... Without it after 18 hours ..41 % left.. With it after 18 hours .... 29% ... Does nothing else except turning wifi whenever it wants..

Johnny Li - Junk

What a load of crap. This application made my awesome battery life pummel down to the ground. Uninstalling now.

Date: Device: Version 1.3.1 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Daniel Donth - HTC Droid DNA

The settings never stay the way you set them so it never shuts things down.

Date: Device: Version 1.3.1.08 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Ray Koceja - Inherent flaw

Needs location services on in order to work which is one of Androids biggest battery draining apps. Doe!

jaron mason - HTC one

I had this app for two months and did not notice anything good from it. After installing I had problems connecting to wifi, sending texts, making calls and just overall phone performance now after uninstalling it performs like New again. I do not recommend this application to anyone.

Doesn't work well with airdroid or tethering. Uninstall.

Dean Nelson - No effect

I've had this running for a few weeks and it has made absolutely no effect on battery life on my LG Optimus G running 4.1.2. It just gets in the way in the notification tray. Great idea, poor results.

Date: Device: Version 1.3.1.08 using Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru


Mario Malinov - Useless

Doesn't do much more than turning off wifi and updates. No real change in battery even on standby and none in screen on time. Uninstalled

Turns off sync and never turns it back on. I don't need an app that is completely counterproductive. Uninstalled and unrecommended.
