Being in a perpetual state of your battery dipping below 20% is the worst. That’s something that Apple and Android users have in common. There is no smart phone on the market that is immune to battery problems. But there are things that any of us can do to make ours perform better. Mainly, to delete the Facebook app. Sorry–it’s what all the tech experts agree:
"The Facebook app," Derek Meister, Geek Squad Agent at Best Buy tells us. "On a tablet, you can still check Facebook via the browser. Some users report the app chews through your charge as well as space on your device. Getting rid of the app may also help you break an obsessive need to constantly check your page for updates. It’s possible to create a bookmark icon on your desktop for the Facebook page for ease of use."
Matthew Zieminski, Head of Mobile Device Repair at Puls agrees that Facebook is the culprit. "The app uses so much of your data and your battery power it’s a wonder that consumers haven’t caught on. The nomads who forego the Facebook social media habits have a one-up on all of us in the form of battery life. Then again, we know more about our high school sweethearts so who’s the real winner? Seriously, Facebook is a threat to your battery and should be treated as such."
