Ever wanted to see exactly how much your device lasts on battery? Developed with this specific goal in mind for the smartphone/tablet tests over at next.lab501.ro, this application lets you test your device in three different scenarios:
- Browsing: loops through several webpages and scrolls them to simulate a natural user-device interaction.
- Video: loops a 720p (if supported) or SD videoclip on the screen using standard methods and APIs to better simulate a real-life scenario.
- Gaming: stresses the GPU inside your device by continuously drawing a 2D canvas on the screen using OpenGL ES.
LAB501 Battery Life stores the initial and final battery levels as well as the duration for each run so that when the device is turned back on the latest result is displayed. Results can be saved to the SD card as a bitmap image so you can easily share it online.
