Battery & data usage testing
Do you require a more in-depth and objective analysis to validate the battery and data usage of your application in real-world usage scenarios? With the help of our battery and data usage testing setup it's possible.Get in touch
A more energy-efficient app
Battery and data usage testing is a powerful tool used to identify and combat software issues that lead to unnecessary battery drain and data consumption. It offers various benefits that are just too good to ignore.
Optimize your app's performance
Determine battery and data usage leaks in most business-critical use cases.
Get a competitive analysis
Compare battery and data usage with your direct competition.
Prevent software regression
Make sure that software changes are not introducing new battery and data usage issues.
Make data-driven decisions
Use objective data to plan and make improvements to your app.
With over 3,500 testing devices with various OSs and their versions in our possession, we can go through critical functionality, gather detailed measurements, and correlate the data to device logs to determine what triggers spikes in consumption.
How it is done
Even though actual testing is automated, we manually review results to understand business-critical use cases as well as the main points of concern. Our test process and setup consist of several steps that allow us to get to the best possible result.
Test case creation
First, we define preconditions and write test cases that specify the set of actions needed to verify a feature.
Setup of preconditions
Next, we establish preconditions, such as network conditions, to successfully execute the test cases.
Test case execution
Then we execute the test cases and compare the expected results with the actual results.
Finally, we gather the data and put it into a report which includes key consumption measurements.
Battery and data consumption
Get a detailed report on battery and data consumption and use it to your advantage—improve your solution's architecture, logic, and overall performance.
In the report you will see:
- Current and power usage over time
- Total consumed battery over the duration of the test
- Expected battery life for any given scenario
- Network usage over time and total network usage
- CPU and memory usage profiles
