Combat Android Battery Drain with LeanDroid

Combat Android Battery Drain with LeanDroid

Battery consumption is one of the weaker points on many modern Android devices. Smartphones need lots of juice to last more than a day on one charge, and they aren’t really optimized in terms of battery management. A few months back, we took a look at LeanData, a handy application that checks to see if your device needs a certain data connection and disables it when not needed. Disabling 4G, 3G, or WiFi helps to improve your battery life significantly.

After some major changes LeanData evolved into LeanDroid. XDA Senior Member Flyview implemented a long list of features that make LeanDroid a complex solution to battery drain. For starters, the app looks completely different now and offers a few new functions. It was also optimized to use less RAM and take as little internal storage as possible. The application was also translated to Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and French. A lot of bugs have been fixed as well.

Application should work with every Android version starting from Froyo onward. If you are using KitKat in versions 4.4.1 and 4.4.2, be sure not to swipe LeanDroid away from recent apps, otherwise it will be killed and do nothing. Give your battery a huge boost and try out this application on your device. You can find the newest version by visiting the LeanDroid application thread.
