Unlike regular mobile phones, smartphones consume a lot of energy due to their advanced capabilities, and that is the reason why they provide less backup despite having bigger battery packs. There are many applications that improve battery performance and one such is Nokia’s battery monitor.
Nokia battery monitor is free of cost and can be downloaded from the Nokia Ovi store. This application gives the user an estimate of the power that remains in the smartphone, and describes how much power different activities such as music, calling, web based applications, gaming etc will consume. Based on this information the user can optimize usage.
For instance, if you have three hours of calling time left and five hours of music playback time, you can use both for 1 hour and 30 minutes or can sacrifice one to increase time with the other.
Nokia battery monitor also displays a history of the smartphone’s energy usage pattern, which breaks up the power consumed in various activities for up to a week’s usage. With this, users can find out what they are consuming most power in, and can cut down on unnecessary activities.
