A battery manager
Battery managers are quite a few on market, and regrettably some of them are useless and provoke the opposite effect. Battery Guru is one of the few that actually work as they should, but it doesn't work in the way you would expect. Let me explain:
Battery Guru works silently and surgically in the background, learning your routines and needs. Hence it creates a pattern to optimize battery life according to where you are, what you do and when, punctually turning on GPS and wifi for a brief time to check these. Results surface from the fourth day onwards. There are no settings, because it isn't a customary battery saver, there isn't any task manager screen or screen bright controls.
That is. Download and install, and let it do its work. In a week or so, your battery will last a little longer longer without giving anything up, you won't miss a thing. A must-have.
• Delivers longer battery life with fewer charges, acting as a battery life extender
• Intelligently learns how you use your Snapdragon-powered 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.
Snapdragon BatteryGuru battery saver app supports a majority of Snapdragon powered devices and we will continue to work to support additional Snapdragon powered devices. If you experience problems using this battery saver app, we'd really appreciate if you send us an email at email@example.com explaining your problem prior to leaving a review – we’ll try to respond as soon as possible.
Q. Why does BatteryGuru need permission to read contacts, call and SMS logs?
A. Snapdragon BatteryGuru now has a companion lockscreen app called Snapdragon Glance. Glance uses the behavioural learning engine of BatteryGuru to give an intelligent lock screen experience. One of the features of Glance is to suggest the next contacts you are most likely to call or SMS and to deliver this feature the contacts and call/SMS permission is required. The application doesn't read the content of the any messages and the data never leaves your device. If you don’t have Glance installed this data is not used by BatteryGuru, but it still needs to ask for the permission.
In the near future the dependency Glance has on BatteryGuru will be removed and these permission will no longer be needed.
Q. Why does Snapdragon BatteryGuru need to know my location?
A. Snapdragon BatteryGuru uses your location to know the places where you have access to Wi-Fi. It does not use GPS but instead uses Android’s low power network location mechanism to find your approximate location.
Q. Why is my Wi-Fi ON sometimes, when I’m expecting it to be OFF?
A. Snapdragon BatteryGuru’s Wi-Fi management feature turns Wi-Fi on when you need it and turns it off when you don’t, thereby saving you power. However, even when you don’t have Wi-Fi access Snapdragon BatteryGuru will periodically turn Wi-Fi on for few minutes to check if your ability to access Wi-Fi has changed. Likewise when you move to a new location, BatteryGuru will turn Wi-Fi on for a few minutes to check if Wi-Fi access is available. Fear not, turning on the Wi-Fi radio for a few minutes like this has little or no impact on your battery life.

Some lists where this application appears: me.
I love this app
A very good and intelligent app.
I already had some respective battery life on my lg g2, but as I installed more and more, my battery life got less & less. The difference with batteryguru is dramatic. I am getting 12+hours of decent activity days before I get to 20%. Its really remarkable the difference it makes. Not sure if it's the best as its the only one I've tried. I see no reason to switch, works awesome.
I installed this, gave it a couple months, but it hasn't improved my battery life at all. Worse, on my nexus 4, it keeps turning my wifi off, when it should be on forcing data to go through my phone plan, costing me more money. When it does this, I can't get my wifi to turn back on, no matter what settings I play with until I reboot my phone.
I have an LG Optimus G (recently upped to android KitKat.) the auto off wifi function is too aggressive, I sit beside the router, and every screen timeout, the wifi blanks out without prior indication. And the use of location services is a actually harming the battery life (and aids in HEATING UP the phone...) help?
This app's as good as they come. I have a wonderful new smart phone that does everything but took a lot of battery power to do so-until this app. I was charging at least 2 to 3 times a day. Now that is extended by 100%! I use my phone on & off all day long and this app has done amazing in extending my battery life. HIGHKY RECOMMEND!!! :)
