The first impression

At the beginning of Avast Battery Saver boasts of his abilities and then we transferred to the main screen, which pleases minimalism. There are no schedules, heaps of buttons as it was at the Battery Doctor, there are only the battery icon, display the flow in real time and the choice of saving modes.

In the upper right corner there is a traditional three points. You can completely disable the application, that sometimes it is necessary. In addition, the possibility to display / hide icons and notifications of charge hungry programs at a certain percentage of the battery charge.

Yes, indeed, a good thing that saves you from various “pilikany” icon and overloading the status bar.

Rounding setting such modest list of recommended applications (including not only the garbage), and the classic button” About “.

As for the profiles, there are two modes – automatic and manual, each of which has its own settings that can be changed.

More information about this will be discussed during testing, as long as we turn to the widget. The latter allows you to quickly stop the program in the background, that is before us a kind of button “Optimize”, like DU Battery Saver .

We have before us a sort of anti-virus application that is simple to manage and reasonable minimalism in functions. It remains only to check all this in action.


The rest Avast Battery Saver consumes moderate for such a program, 76.3 MB of RAM with zero CPU load, but too early to rejoice – if further testing things can change.

At the same time manager of the battery is only the fourth version of the operating system Android, which at the moment is not so terrible (it is still the most popular mobile operating system). Shestimegabaytny distribution expands to moderate 14.87 MB and the resolution afflict only need to determine the location. What is it for the program, we shall understand below.

Let’s start by checking saving modes. Automatic mode is based on the level of the charge and received five presets – at home, at work, at best, night and special. The latter mode can be set to a certain percentage of the battery charge.

In addition, like other managers, it is possible to disable the networks, signal synchronization, auto rotate screen vibration. Of the features – an opportunity not to turn off the network if the music is playing, which is useful for streaming.

Manual requires these manual steps – themselves included” night “and disable it yourself in the morning. By the way, it can work on a schedule that distinguishes night mode from the other. However, it can be used during the day, if your lifestyle is clearly painted. Here everything works like clockwork and there are no bugs and false positives I spent three days did not notice.

But the function” Smart charging “is not that I am personally not very upset, because it uses a different program (DU Battery Saver). But, basically, it is a pity that this feature is not added, even if its real effectiveness is not proven.

Among the other features of the program is worth noting,” The consumption of applications “, which can not be called adequate, because the actual data is significantly underestimated. The costs of Avast Battery Saver in it, that resembles a “trick» Battery Doctor.

Now, compare the performance of the program with the data DU Battery Saver.

The latter shows a more or less truthful information on the results Avast decision which eats (so far) less than all the programs I tested – only 0.2%!

188x300 37 KB. Big one: 800x1280 223 KB

This is a reasonably small increase resource consumption during intensive use manager . RAM consumption increased to 86.7 MB, at least CPU and tensed up 0.2%. As for the traffic, at all about all it took 1.1 MB (viewing recommended application).

And that’s why GPS program remained a mystery, if we forget about the fact that it simply turns off if necessary. The developers explain it this way: «Smart profiles and automatic adjustment feature optimizes power consumption based on the time of day and location. Avast Battery Saver offers optimal profiles for your phone ». Why all this, if you can just synchronize the clocks correctly?

If you drop the” minor “quibbles like positioning and a lack of features intelligent charging, the Avast Battery Saver really efficient application that is easily configurable and operated. In addition, it uses a tiny amount of resources and it can be recommended for routine use.

However, it was not without a spoon of tar – integrated application manager hopelessly exaggerating, and thus “optimization” will not work correctly. But who needs this primitive widget thinking for you? By the way, the temperature control is not provided, as well as the history of the load on the battery, so gikam this program will be of little interest.

Evaluation: 4.5 on a scale.
