The battery is the one aspect of smartphones that users tend to worry about the most. Although this is very challenging given that these apps drain the battery, we start thinking about different ways to reduce energy consumption and increase its battery life as soon as the device is turned on.

Although they are not always successful, we are accustomed to taking a variety of steps to extend the battery of the smartphone as much as possible. Primarily because we now know which applications are the most dangerous in this regard. Because they completely deplete energy with just the use of them.

There are countless applications for your Android device in the Google Play Store. There are services for everything, but on the whole, users tend to download the same popular apps. However, in order to best care for the battery in your smartphone. There are some of them that you should avoid downloading or using less often.

Be cautious, while some of these applications are quite helpful and should be installed on our smartphones, others can be disastrous for those who already experience battery issues. So examine whether you actually require them. The list of apps with the highest energy usage is as follows:

  • Fitbit
  • Uber
  • Skype
  • Facebook
  • Airbnb
  • Instagram
  • Tinder
  • Bumble
  • Snapchat
  • WhatsApp

The organization that has compiled this data is pCloud, a research firm. To achieve this, they created a list of applications that use the battery of the device the most. And the end result is shown here. No matter how great these platforms are, according to the entity, they are affecting the battery life really hard.

Actuality, they are very well popular apps, and you may have more than one of them on your phone. Since they can still use some of the battery in the background, it might be more convenient for you to get rid of some if you don’t use it frequently, especially if you’ve had battery issues in the past.

The smartphone’s most demanding applications

The research firm looked at three factors when determining which apps were the most resource-intensive on our phones. The things each app uses, such as the location or camera, the battery these applications consume, and whether the dark mode is offered.

They were able to determine which of the 100 most popular apps is the most demanding and name them the ultimate phone killers by combining the results of these three factors.
