Will you sacrifice Facebook App for extra 20 Percent of Battery Life?

Facebook recently has an ongoing problem developing on Android for a while now. Facebook’s central item officer, Chris Cox, even encouraged his staff to switch to Android in order to live with the issues and figure them out.

A recent independent test by Tech World Zone found that the problems have persisted and that the smartphone battery life could be a lot better without the Facebook app.

For Tech World Zone’s latest trial the writer tried out the Metal app for Android, which is just a wrapper for Facebook’s mobile site. They use a Huawei Nexus 6P to test, the phone had 20% more battery life over the course of a day. This remained true every day over the course of a week.

When we are taking a look at Android’s built-in battery monitoring statistics, Facebook didn’t appear to be using an inordinate amount of power. But it seems that various Android administrations were using more battery life in the background and the overall experience was slowed down as well.

The fact is, Facebook has a lot going on when it’s constantly running and this probably isn’t just a case of negligence on the social media giant’s part.

While, it is not enough to say that this will be true for everyone because one man tested one phone but it seems that the previous, more detailed user experiences remain true. The best way to find out is to try it out yourself!
