Modern smartphones now feature lovely big touchscreen displays that are powered by multi core processors that undertake a variety of complex tasks. Trouble is some users experience poor battery life on their handset for a variety of reasons such as multiple applications running in the background, so today we thought we would look at some apps that can aid smartphone battery life.
First for owners of the Apple iPhone is the free Battery Life Pro that was recently updated and is now compatible with iOS 6. The application has some high user ratings and basically allows you to see a breakdown of how long your battery will last using a number of tasks, which includes Internet, camera use, Wi-Fi, standby, 3G talk, 2G talk, video, audio, or playing 2D and 3D games.
