Out of the blue my phone started losing battery charge incredibly fast. A full charge took over 12 hours. The phone was hotter to the touch than normal. With nothing showing up as open and nothing appearing overtly wrong, I was sure my battery was likely bad. I decided to try this just to see. I bought the ad-free version - I HATE ads - and it found an app that was somehow drawing right at 64% of my battery. The display was using most of the rest. I uninstalled the offending app and my phone was happy again.
18% battery is consuming by this app I have the pro version. I expect this app to help extend the battery life, but it is the #1 battery consumer.
The dev isn't as responsive as he used to be. Lately I've having some problems with the info shown by the app - missing data, data resetting without warning. It's still better than stock, but I'm starting to consider alternatives.
even without root it is the best battery monitor I've used. so much useful info is conveyed from a very user freindly interface. a essential install on all my devices.
This app was great on my Samsung S4, but on my Moto Droid X, it's all wonky. When charging, it reports anywhere from 840mA to -430mA, and then unplugged it reports from 350mA to -1870mA. For the former, the charge should be draining my battery, but it's not, and if the latter was true my phone would be dead in 3-4 hours, but it lasts all day.
This is a class act. It was so perfect I even went pro - something I rarely do. I use big triple batteries on two phones, one dedicated to communication with the network and the second to handle the screen load as it is tethered to the main phone. I can see all the battery statistics for five or six days before I need to recharge the phones. I can find nothing negative to say about the GSam app. And would go pro again in a heartbeat; it's a class act.
