    Default Best battery saving app for rooted Android phones

    Greening is an app which allows users to increase their phone's battery life up to 50%. By the use of this app, the users can disable those unnecessary apps which keep running in the background and eat up your data and battery. Since we download many such apps which we don't use daily, it's recommended to keep all those apps on hibernation. For example, I have UC browser installed in my phone and I keep it on hibernation, which means it will only wake up and use my data and battery when I open it manually. This app works best with rooted phone. If you want to download this app, head over to playstore and search for Greenify. Good luck!

    Thanks @Waqsi that was really a very helpful tip I ever got in this forum. It will be very useful in the present scenario where almost all smartphones are craving for more battery power. Are you sure it can save 50% of our battery life? Then it is a wonderful program, every body should download to their devices.

    I personally believe this is going to work as it has the option to hibernate idle applications, especially for Android phones. Android phones are becoming infamous for their low battery life due to frequent update by Google Play and this can be a remedy for that to some extent.

    Have you downloaded it in your mobile and how is it working for you?

    The latest Android update comes with that battery saving feature already built in without the need to download an external app. Depending what device you have its buried in the setting menu somewhere under a title of battery saving or app management.

    While I've not tried this app, all the other battery saving apps I have tried in the past haven't really done anything different than what you can do yourself, all they do is make it easier as you can change the setting with just one click, instead of having to go into each individual setting.

    While that sounds like a better option, you also have to look at how much memory they use up, as some of them can be quite large. Also with it being a battery saving app it will usually be running in the background, so it will decrease the amount of RAM you'll have to use for other apps, and it will also be draining your battery faster, and that's the exact thing it's supposed to be helping.

    @webworld you're most welcome mate! And yes, this app works best on rooted phones and provides a much battery life. It definitely gives your battery an extra 50% life.
    @Pwarbi Even though the new Android phones come up with already built in battery saver, I think this app is going to be helpful for all those who are running older version of Android in their device. I don't really know about other battery savings apps, but this one worked for me like a charm. I repeat, this app works best on rooted phones.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Update- I'm extremely sorry guys I need to make a correction it's not greening it's 'Greenify'. Please search for Greenify instead of greening. Damn this incorrect!! -_-

    As with most apps it's finding one that works best for you and on your device, so if it works for you then it should work for others. Like you say on rooted devices that don't have the latest software then give it a go, it's always good to get independent reviews on apps on forums like this rather than relying on the, maybe not so honest ones, on the actual store itself...

    @pwarbi It works for me like a charm and I can see my battery life has extended considerably. I think everyome should consider using this app, if they have battery draining issues. Its the best battery saving app for me till date, and it has received a very good feedback on playstore with 10 million downloads.

    I searched on net and got a number of good reviews about the application Greenfy. A good news is that now they have made the auto hibernation feature fully accessible to non-rooted phones too. So, you can enjoy its benefits without having root access to your phone.

    I am going to try this application and experience how much useful it would be for my Samsung Galaxy phone. Hope it can be a great help for my poor battery backup.

    That's great man! If this app is made available to non rooted phones, then I think the download numbers would be doubled soon. Share your experience with us later!

    Yes, you are right, this will make this application more popular among Android users.

    Do you know there is another application which helps to save battery life in similar lines. It is called Deepsleep battery saver which forces your handset into deep sleep when the screen is off. All mobile data will be turned off and background applications will be hibernated. One drawback of Deepsleep is that you will not get notifications when Deepsleep is active. But Greenfy alerts us about any notifications as and when it happens. Also Deepsleep is active only when the handset goes to standby mode, but Greenfy works irrespective of the screen's position in on or off condition. I think Greenfy is the most user friendly application for an Android user.

    Deep sleep as been around for a while now as an app, but I really don't see the point of using it.

    Like it days in the title, it does just that and puts your phone into a deep sleep, practically turning it off, so you won't receive any texts, calls or anything. So what would be the point of carrying a mobile if it won't receive any notifications?

    Why a battery saving app? Hum I don't find the reason to install useless apps on a device making it more vulnerable to posible infections (if you are not 100% sure if the app is secure), slowliness (a big threat to Android devices) and bugs (like freezing the phone, making it shutdown for no reason etc), and of course that most of the apps are not 100% compatible with all phones but they have a range of compatibliness, for example if your phone is 95% compatible you are able to install the app, but it's not 100% compatible, the "missing compatibility" may cause slowliness, bugs etc. Unfortunately there are a lot of Android versions and the latest apps are made to be compatible with the latest Android versions...

    @bluegreen Useless app? Have you ever tried this app? I'm sure you didn't even bother to take a look at it before coming to a conclusion. I think you should try this app because it really worked for me and that, without any glitches as you mentioned above. Its probably the best battery saver app I have ever come across. Anyways, you can edit your post anytime if you use it in future.

    I agree with your point that we need to ensure compatibility before installing any software and equally important is its credibility. But Greenfy being an old application may be compatible with old versions of Android. And if you use Marshmallow then there is no need of a separate application to take care of your battery power. There is a built-in application called "Doze" which ensures optimum utilization of battery. It will ward off most of the negative effects of sudden battery drain syndrome caused by Google Play I think.

    But for older versions of Android it is always better to install a compatible and credible software to control frequent battery drain.

    I tried all of those apps and I can say non of them work. Just set your phone's brightness to low if you wanted a longer battery life. These so called batter saving apps don't work. They just give you this psychological comfort who wont lose battery fast when they were installed but they don't work.

    Greenify

    Initially created for rooted Android devices, Greenify helps extend battery life by automating the hibernation process, which keeps your apps from launching new background processes and sipping at that precious battery. Note that this is not the same thing as a task killer and the full functionality of apps is still present. In other words, Greenify puts misbehaving and otherwise thirsty apps to sleep without outright disabling or force closing them.

    With Greenify, users can handpick which apps aren't always that important and have the phone put them to sleep.
