Does Closing Apps in your smartphone save your battery

by Harikrishna Mekala

What we believe 

All smartphones can multitask in apps, but multiple apps operating in the background drain your smartphone battery.

All our phones are nowadays are powered by Lithium-ion Battery and what is Lithium ion….

A lithiumion battery or Liion battery (abbreviated as LIB) is a type of rechargeable battery in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging. … Lithiumion batteries are common in home electronics.

It is important to note that trickle charging is not acceptable for lithium batteries. The Liion chemistry cannot accept an overcharge without causing damage to the cell, possibly plating out lithium metal and becoming hazardous. Float charging, however, is a useful option.


The Actual Facts

All smartphone operating systems aren’t created equal, making this myth tough to break downs. According to iOS developer Mr.Fraser Speirs, for instance, when you hit an iPhone’s Home button, an app moves from active to background to suspended state in a matter of seconds. Suspended, an app draws neither processing nor battery power from your phone. According to Mr.Steven Troughton-Smith, CEO/founder of app developer High Caffeine Contents, Windows Phone 8 background apps operate in much the same frozen fashions as iOS — but there are exception. “For instances, a GPS navigation app that needs to run in the background, or something like a VoIP apps that needs to sit and wait for calls,” Troughton-Smith cited. “What both Apple and Microsoft do [is] … implement these background mode, which is easier on performance and power.” Android, however, Mr.Smith noted, “lets apps run when they’re not on screen, and do whatever they want.” Background apps on the new BlackBerry 10 can also sap processors and battery resources.


The Verdict

False (iOS, Windows Phone 8),

True (Android, BlackBerry 10).
