If you know how to use a phone, these battery savers are useless.

I know how to optimize battery life and i can even get a 7 hr on-screen time out of it over 4 days of use.

Sorry, I use an s4 and a G2.

Usually s4 has 700 to 800 MB RAM free and g2 has 400-600 MB free. Both are on 4.4.2 kitkat.



Also free RAM is wasted RAM and the more apps in RAM, the more fast the interface will run.

If you want to have problems with RAM, own a sony device. I used a z1 and the experience was horrible. It sometimes had less than 50 MB available and the system freezed.

Unless you have less than 200 MB RAM available, the system will run like butter. So no need to worry.


Also the blasts happen due to using fake chinese batteries. Use genuine products.

I've read news with a lot of products exploding. Even apple products like iphone 5 or 5s. But that doesn't mean the products are cheap. If one product out of a billion is defected, that too by using a non-certified battery, I don't think I'll stop using products.

The problem is deep and nothing specific to any phone.

This will be sorted out with the next android 5.0 as they are ditching dalvik for ART.

It has happened one time with me too. I guess in april 2014. Don't worry, it's rare.

Some suggetions.

Disable some apps like samsung link and samsung push service that you don't use. To do this go to settings> more tab> apps> all tab . And go to these apps and disable them.

use power saving mode

Don't use the phone much when surroundings are too warm.

Get an s-view cover.

These will help you.

Have a nice day
