Anyone Tried this yet?

Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...snapdragon.app

App is from Qualcomm.

I've never used apps the limit functionality to save battery before, but if anyone would know how to do this right, it should be Qualcomm.

Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru extends battery performance and improves overall user experience by intelligently making changes that optimize Snapdragon device functionality. This app:
• Delivers longer battery life with fewer charges
• Intelligently learns how you use your Snapdragon smartphone and optimizes your device without disabling smartphone functionality
• Requires no user configuration - Snapdragon BatteryGuru automatically learns and adjusts the smartphone settings so you don’t have to.

After a brief 2-4 day introduction period, Snapdragon BatteryGuru learns the user’s behaviors and then notifies the user that it is ready to extend the battery life and improve the experience. Snapdragon BatteryGuru continues to operate in the background, deepening its understanding of the user and further optimizing the experience over time.

I'm not really sure on what the value of these apps are.

Letting my phone do whatever it wants when I'm on wifi and my phone is sitting idle, my phone uses around 1%/hour of battery life.

Some portion of that is all this app could really save then, right?

Why bother if, in exchange, I'm possibly having delayed notifications, apps not updating in the background, etc.?

Re: Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru
Sounds like a bunch of BS to me.

I'll be shocked if this makes any discernable difference.

I installed this and 3 days later it was still in learning mode. I got tired of waiting for it to do something else, so I deleted it and installed Greenify.

I may try this out, but I already have the no–brainer solution to battery life woes...a big fat extended battery. If only lots of others would do the same lol.

Re: Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru
Some of the reviews said it actually drained the battery. Might be wort trying but I have my doubts.

Re: Snapdragon™ BatteryGuru
I've had it on my sick Verizon s3 for about 3 days, so far not impressed. It took 2 days in learning mode, then once that period ended it seems to actually be a significant battery drainer! I will try for another couple of days and report back, but I'm not optimistic so far.
