Modern Android phone batteries have come a long way since its inception, but as current smartphones become more capable than ever, their battery usage also increases. Most modern smartphones struggle to last until the end of the day with some moderate usage from an average user.
Without a battery that performs well for long periods, using a smartphone can become challenging. Poor charging habits and negligence can cause the battery to deteriorate faster. So here we bring you five apps that could help you monitor your Android device’s battery health.
Price: Free (Contains Ads)/In-App purchase
AccuBattery has been a fan favourite for a long time. It offers real-time monitoring while you are plugged into your charger — so you’ll know what exactly is happening when you are charging plus how much you’re wearing out your battery with each session. It also features a charging alarm so that you don’t overcharge your phone.

Battery Doctor is another fan favourite. Not only does it offer battery health monitoring data similar to AccuBattery, but it also claims to cool your phone down while you’re checking the stats. What it mostly does is clear out background apps and pause sync features to help the phone charge more efficiently and without heat — hence theoretically cooling it down too.
