Even though Android phones have come a long way in terms of design and user friendliness, there is one thing which has not been significantly improved yet, the battery. Batteries in Android phones last maximum a day or two and some phones even die before the end of the day.

How annoyed you would be if your costly phone is not there for you when you need it the most, right? While the operating system contributes a tiny bit to this battery draining issue, the major role is played by poorly optimised Android apps that you install on your phone.

There are millions of apps available in the Play Store for download but more than half of them are poorly optimised that they affect the battery, storage and performance of your smartphone. So much so that even Android phone with more than 4000 mAh battery struggle to make it through the day.

So, what is the solution? What should you do to improve the battery life of your Android smartphone? The solution is pretty obvious right? Uninstall those apps that drain your battery so much. But how do you find what apps cause the problem and how to keep away from downloading such apps in the future?

Fortunately, Avast, a premium Anti-virus app for Android, has released its quarterly report with a list of 20 most power hungry apps that consume your Android phone’s battery, storage and your data.

Surprisingly, some of the top apps in the list are most popular apps with millions of downloads and daily active users. So, if you plan on uninstalling them, there are always other alternatives for these apps which are lite in size and consumes lot less battery life.
