There are free apps in Google Play like Trepn that show you exactly what happens to the CPU frequencies of all cores during a file download. This data is captured in the background so the screen can be off. They also show the CPU load and actual power consumption in mA or mW. I've found that downloading a large file over Wi-Fi uses more power than you would ...

As already mentioned, Power Tutor doesn’t display power for the GPU. Power Tutor is a very cool app, but it's based on research that was done in 2011. It uses modelling to estimate power consumption. No actual power is displayed. Power Tutor is surprisingly accurate when it is run on the phone that was used to create the model, but that phone (the HTC Dream) ...

All phones automatically stop charging once they reach 100%. They then carefully monitor and "bounce" the battery level to ensure it doesn't drain too much, but doesn't overcharge, either. But they're definitely designed with this core concept in mind to reduce damage. Besides, if it stopped charging it at 100% and didn't start back up again, odds are by the ...

Most phones tend to cache your location periodically and use this information when requested by you applications so that battery drain isn't a big problem. I believe this is called assisted GPS. This does have the disadvantage of allowing to your location to quickly become inaccurate. Imagine if your location is cached as you get onto a train, you then ...

There's usually a wrong conception on how these "numbers" should be interpreted. For example, your screenshot shows "Screen: 3%". So what does that mean? a. the screen ate 3% of your battery, thus reducing it e.g. from 100% to 97% b. the screen was responsible for the overall discharging by 3% – in this case, it "ate 1.8% juice" Hint: it's not a) – so ...
