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 “.

188x300 66 KB. Big one: 800x1280 476 KB

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 .

188x300 9 KB. Big one: 800x1280 54 KB  188x300 12 KB. Big one: 800x1280 57 KB

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.

188x300 21 KB. Big one: 800x1280 233 KB

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.

188x300 9 KB. Big one: 800x1280 51 KB  188x300 12 KB. Big one: 800x1280 57 KB

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.

188x300 25 KB. Big one: 800x1280 154 KB  188x300 12 KB. Big one: 800x1280 57 KB

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.

188x300 25 KB. Big one: 800x1280 154 KB

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?

188x300 34 KB. Big one: 800x1280 214 KB  188x300 21 KB. Big one: 800x1280 233 KB


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.

In recent years, the Internet has replaced many of the usual things – not just television, but radio. And if “zomboyaschiku” still live so live, FM-radio is already losing ground. However, some interest this class of broadcasting still is, especially for car owners.

Typical applications for listening to FM-radio differ only slightly, but the online offer customers a large number of radio stations and some very interesting features. It’s time to look at them.

According to the tradition in a new review, we consider the three most pressing application. The first in our test comes TuneIn Radio, who have downloaded more than 150 million users (bad?) The following is an advanced PCRADIO. Well, the third program is attractive for its simplicity and predictability, in fact, it is clear from its name – ‘Radio FM ». Naturally, at the end of the test you will have to wait for the results summary.

As the test equipment used tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (CM 12.1 on the basis of OC Android 5.1, the runtime ART, processor TI OMAP 4430 2 x 1200 MHz videosoprotsessor PowerVR 540 384 MHz, 1 GB RAM ) and smartphone Xiaomi Redmi Note (Miui V7 at OC Android 4.4.2, the runtime Dalvik, processor MediaTek MT6592, an 8 x 1700 MHz, videosoprotsessor Mali-450 MP4 700MHz, 2GB RAM).

TuneIn Radio

TuneIn Radio – the most popular client for listening to online radio, who have downloaded more than 150 million times! What is it so interesting? Let’s look at the application and examine in this together.

Getting Started


253x449 56 KB. Big one: 720x1280 220 KB  253x449 41 KB


TuneIn Radio greets us with a simple and concise splash screen, where we were asked to choose the local wave is already open Listen to the station, view news, fashion trends and to select a radio station for all tastes and languages.

Separately, you can listen to highlight popular podcasts – that is a very good addition to the basic functionality of the program.

253x449 43 KB 253x449 47 KB. Big one: 720x1280 165 KB


But first we will look at the main features of the program. So, we need to choose a local radio station: indicate your region and get a list of matching stations.

Choose any of them and get into a radio profile, which displays information about the popularity of the station, the number of subscribers and broadcasts. Of course, we can subscribe to your favorite wave – this will add a station to your favorites.

253x449 46 KB. Big one: 720x1280 119 KB


Run the station. Before us there is quite a classic menu with a player – not unusual and supernatural. The only thing we can leave comments on the stations, add them to your favorites and share them with friends (TuneIn Radio app there is also mentioned).

You can also view the related stations and recently heard, and quickly switch between all of our subscriptions, which is very convenient.

253x449 45 KB. Big one: 720x1280 195 KB


By the way, depending on the radio we listen to audio streams of different quality. For example, Heart FM offers four threads, three of which are 100% reliable, and two provide high quality – 256 kbit / s, but it all individually.

One of the interesting features that are present in the TuneIn Radio, you can note the “Sleep Timer” and an alarm clock. Regarding the first function I have nothing to say – a normal timer that allows you to turn off the radio after a certain period of time.

253x449 31 KB. Big one: 720x1280 101 KB  253x449 43 KB. Big one: 720x1280 136 KB


But the Service is much more interesting. This function allows you to run our radio and a private radio station in particular, at a certain time and a certain volume. It would seem, why is it necessary?

My fantasy allowed to generate a lot of ideas, but they will stay with me. The most simple and basic – a morning alarm, we will immediately wake up at the voice of a master of the active ester.

253x449 192 KB. Big one: 720x1280 1196 KB


Naturally, TuneIn Radio has widgets, there are two types – simple and complex. The first type offers a playback start button, while the second controls are added. In general, nothing unusual, just the widgets, but they are there, and that’s good.

253x449 24 KB. Big one: 720x1280 89 KB


In principle, this could complete the survey and free Internet Radio TuneIn Radio. But in addition to the foregoing, the application is the “auto mode”, which simplifies the interface to a minimum. It provides the user with the shutter of the main functions in a simpler form. Perhaps it will be important for drivers.



253x449 72 KB. Big one: 720x1280 223 KB


As for settings, here TuneIn Radio does not contain anything useful. All that we can fit in three lines of description: to create an application to establish the parameters of buffering, select the stream quality, improve graphic design and enable / disable notification.



253x449 31 KB. Big one: 720x1280 97 KB  253x449 53 KB. Big one: 720x1280 177 KB


TuneIn Radio there for many years on the market applications. The program itself has already reached the 14th revision of eliminating all kinds of bugs and expanding the list of supported devices to the maximum. Personally, I find it hard to find fault with client health – more than excellent, better evaluate the program themselves. The only thing that memory should be over 100 MB.

By the way, depending on the flow and quality of the radio we need web speeds from 25-30 kbit / s.



TuneIn Radio – good customer to listen to online radio. Appendix quite beautiful, stylish and comfortable. It is worth mentioning the simplified mode, which removes all the glamor and glitter, but will make the program easier to use. As for other features and functions, then there is not empty, not a lot. There timer, alarm clock and widgets – that’s all! But it is not so important, the main thing here – the radio station. With this, as well as with sound, everything is just perfect.

The application offers two versions: free, with reduced functionality and advertising, as well as the Pro version without ads and with additional features. It calculated that the user can choose according to your taste. However, the full version is no less, and $ 9.99. Here we can not advise – it all depends on your preference.
