Live Wallpaper Battery consumption tested
So here it goes... people are always asking about how Live Wallpapers influence the battery consumption of the phone... in this case i tested on a Galaxy s3 i9300.
For this test i kept the screen on until the battery gone down to 30%.
This is how i made the test.
I used the Live Wallpaper Magic Bubbles, you can find it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ljYnViYmxlcyJd
I think this LWP is good coded so there's no problem about that influencing the consumption of the battery.
I kept the brightness on full too. (100%)
To keep the screen on during all the process i also used the app, Screen On Toggler: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...9udG9nZ2xlciJd
To keep the results fair as possible when doing the test Without the live wallpaper, i took a screenshot of it and then crop it and applied it as wallpaper so i could have the same colors coming out of the screen.
So this is all the details i think... the rom used was foxhound 1.7, although i think it doesn't matter.
This was the result then.
So as you can see its a big difference and yes the LWP has a big hit on the battery consumption... although of course you will not keep the screen always on.. this was just a test so i hope its helpful to you. Next time i will had a test but with a black background... or a darker background... to see the difference between a colorful BG and a darker BG.
