  • How to save battery life on your Android device: 16 tips to extend battery performance
If you have a Samsung handset – like the Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy S5 – you'll be disappointed to hear that two of Samsung's own apps are the biggest battery hogs. AllShareCast Dongle and ChatON Voice & Video Chat top the charts, but there are also big names such as Facebook and Path in the top ten. Here's the list in full:
  1. AllShareCast Dongle S/W Update (Samsung)
  2. ChatON Voice & Video Chat (Samsung)
  3. Beaming Service for Beep'n'Go (Moheam)
  4. magicApp: Free Calls (magiclack VocalTec)
  5. Samsung WatchON Tablets
  6. Facebook
  7. Path
  8. PPS for Mobile
  9. Vault-Hide SMS Pics & Videos
  10. Al-Moazin Lite Prayer Times
Of course, it is not just apps that are to blame for battery drain; games are major culprits as well. Among the worst offenders are those from King (Candy Crush Saga and Bubble Witch 2 Saga) and Supercell (Clash of Clans and Hay Day):
  1. Puzzle & Dragons (GungHo Online Entertainment)
  2. Hay Day (Supercell)
  3. Candy Crush Saga (King)
  4. Minecraft – Pocket Edition (Mojang)
  5. Cookie Jam (SGN)
  6. Pet Rescue Saga (King)
  7. Clash of Clans (Supercell)
  8. Bubble Witch 2 Saga (King)
  9. Farm Heroes Saga (King)
  10. Angry Birds (Rovio Mobile)
AVG also looked at the apps which impacted most heavily on device performance, and many of the same names crop up again. Facebook, Spotify and Instagram are just three of the apps that sap performance:
  1. Facebook
  2. Path
  3. 9GAG Funny Pics & Videos
  4. Instagram
  5. Spotify Music
  6. BBM (BlackBerry)
  7. QQ (Tencent Technology)
  8. textPlus Free Text & Calls
  9. Wattpad Free Books & Stories
  10. iFunny : )
A fourth top ten list reveals the apps that eat up the most space:
  1. NY Times – Breaking News
  2. Tango Messenger Video & Calls
  3. Spotify Music
  4. Facebook
  5. Chrome Browser
  6. 9GAG Funny pics & videos
  7. Instagram
  8. LINE camera – Selfie & Collage
  9. Vine
  10. Talking Angela
