Summary

When your phone’s battery level is low, you probably only have yourself to blame. But it’s nice to have someone else to pin it on, too—or rather, something. Phone-storage app company pCloud decided to help out by analyzing app permissions to find which are operating in your phone whether you’re using them or not.

The methodology involved looking at which functions the apps used (such as location or camera), how much battery power those require, and whether the apps in question have a dark-mode setting. By those standards, the top five biggest drains are Facebook, Fitbit, Skype, Uber, and Verizon.

 

Not so coincidentally, the apps that are the biggest time sucks are also among the biggest battery drainers. Social media and dating apps are the most guilty of this. Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Snapchat, YouTube, and WhatsApp are in the top 20, and all permit 11 features to run in the background. Online dating can be emotionally exhausting, and your phone feels the same way. Bumble, Grindr, and Tinder account for 15% of the top battery-draining apps. They let about 11 features run while you swipe on potential matches.
