This is not a paid promotion of this App. I am using personally this App on my OnePlus smartphone. To save the battery from unnecessary usage. The app doesn’t show you unnecessary animation and also no useless widget. The app comes with hibernate feature, which helps you to close background running Apps.
Though, App needs root permission to hibernate some system services. But, you can use this App, without rooting your Android device. All you need to do is, enable Greenify from accessibility settings. Once you hibernate all Apps. Next time you need to click on “zzz” button to hibernate all Apps at once.
Note: If you hibernate any App through Greenify, then you”ll not receive notification from that particular App. So, I suggest you select important Apps like Facebook and WhatsApp in “Degreenify Selected App” list.
Like other “best battery saver App,” you don’t need to open Greenify Again and Again. To hibernate unnecessary background running Apps. App has a feature, which will close All background running Apps when you close smartphone screen.

Amplify Battery Extender (Root).
“Amplify battery extender” is one of the best alternatives to Greenify App. Although, this App is completely different from Greenify App. And, you need to root your smartphone to use this App. The main feature of this App is, identify and do stop the WakeLocks. Wakelocks occurs when an App prevents smartphone to go into sleep mode. And, continually uses battery and smartphone power.
The app allows controlling not only installed Apps by you. Also, you can control system Apps even alarm. There is pro version of this App available, which adds more features. Recently, App developer added Android Nougat support. So, if you’re using Android Oreo, then you might face some issues. The app is open source project. So, if you’re also a developer, you can see how App works and can build the App yourself.
Although, above Apps are enough to save battery life. But, I tried Brevent App, and I can say it is also “best battery saver App”. You don’t need to root your smartphone to use this App. But you need a computer to activate this App on your smartphone. The main use of this App is preventing the Unlaunched Apps from running in the background. Unfortunately, to use Brevent you need Android 5.0 and higher version. It’s 2018, and device coming with Android Oreo. So you don’t need to worry about it.
The best part is Apps added in the Brevent list can receive notifications. You can use allow sync feature, which isn’t available in Greenify App. In Android Oreo, you need to enable USB debugging option always. There is a guide available on the internet to enable this App. So, I suggest you search for it. Or, you can comment, I will tell you the exact link of that guide.
If you know in marshmallow google has introduced doze mode. Which terminate background process. But, it does get activated after an hour. And, when you move the device, due to the sensors of the smartphone, doze mode gets turned off. So to fix this issue and save battery life, there is an App called Naptime. Some users were facing issue with the App. So developer already mentioned solution in App description.
The app works fine in Android 6.0 and higher version of it. To use App in non-rooted smartphone you need to give some command through ADB. You can read the description on play store to find out all commands. With this App, doze mode gets activated when you turn off your smartphone screen. This App also disables smartphone sensors, to prevent doze mode to get off. Overall, this is best Android battery saver App to try.
That’s it. Still, there are many Apps available. Which can be the “Best Battery Saver App”. But those Apps works similarly like these Apps. If you’re confused which App to try. Then start using Greenify. Because you don’t need to root smartphone. And, also don’t need to give the command to activate App. If you think there is any better App available, feel free to comment.
