Google’s Project Volta makes Android OS less power hungry
As reported by Arstechnica here, the android “L” preview for developers suggests that it is less power hungry than its predecessor The Android Kit Kat.
Google has always been working on its weaknesses which then gets addressed in its I/O get together. In the recent 2014 Google I/O, key note get together, Google addressed its Android OS’s power consumption problem.
The tests were done by the Arstechnica, on a Nexus 5 and reported to have got 36% extra juice out of the battery with all power saving options disabled.
It’s worth noting that numerous customers had complained about Nexus 5s battery drainage problem.
So how did Google do it? As per the Google’s own words they examined and monitored how different components of a phone use power and then optimized the Android L to use less power. Google also noted that active use of just one second reduces the battery standby time by two minutes.
So far the results are based on the Android “L” developer preview but from these results one thing seems for sure and that is Google is going on the right path.
