Consider using Google GO apps if you have 1 GB or less RAM

I have an old Lava tablet which has 1 GB of RAM. The specifications where not spectacular. I have only 8 GB of internal memory in which I have to accommodate all my apps. I will hardly get 6 GB to use it for myself. If you are one such user consider installing the following apps. The apps which I am going to mention in this post are all Google go app. With the launch of Android Oreo, Google came with set of apps which uses less memory and less space.

In this post I want to compare my previous Google apps with the new Android go apps. Here I will show how much space and memory I saved by using the new Android go apps.

Another advantage of using this go app is it consumes very less data. These apps are designed to run on the mobile which cost less than 5K rupees.

Below are the list of Android go apps that we can download from Play Store

Phone with battery life more than 15 hours

Initially my search was for the phone with battery life close to 2 days. After my research I found the longest time the battery backup can be is 28 hours. And the name of the phone is Lenovo P2. There can be some other phone which can cross this feat but the chances are slim. Unfortunately this phone is not available for sale. Then I found few phones  which gives battery backup close to 24 hours. But they are not powerful and it is a Samsung phone. I wanted to try something different from Samsung so I started my search again. Then I found another two phones from Oneplus but they are out of my budget. The two phones are Oneplus 5 and Oneplus 5t. Finally I found the phone which I can afford and it gives battery backup more than 15 hours. It is Motorola moto Z2 play. It is successor of Motorola Moto Z play which had phenomenal battery backup close to 24 hours (1425 minutes).

How the phone is tested? To check the battery life we had play the video in 1080 p continuously and also we have o…

How long does it take to charge a Samsung Level U?

My Samsung Level U is taking around 1.5 to 2 hours depends on the remaining charge. Upon charging I will use 6 days straight for 3 to 4 hours per day usage.

The charging time and battery backup will vary with device. I have spoken with other users using Samsung Level U and below is the charging time and battery backup range:

Charging time - 1 hour to 3 hours.
Battery Backup - 3 days to 7 days (with 3 hours per day usage)

If you see above metric the least charging time is 1 hour. It all depends on how often you charge and the power supply, charger your use. If you use direct AC power supply chances are it will charge fast. If you use power bank to charge then there will be delay.

Battery backup depends on the volume you use. If you use it with full volume then battery will drain faster. Also if you frequently disconnect and connect then the battery backup will be affected. It is always better to keep connected rather than connecting/disconnecting frequently.
