BEIJING, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/19/16 -- Baidu, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIDU), the leading Chinese language Internet search provider, today announced the release of its latest report, the Global App Power Consumption Report. The report, which will be released on a quarterly basis by the DU Global Battery Lab team in cooperation with the DU Battery Saver team, reviews power consumption patterns of the most popular Android apps worldwide, and ranks those apps according to their strain on smartphone battery life.
In the Global App Power Consumption Report, apps are placed into one of four categories based on how much power they consume when running in the front-end (i.e. actively being used), and when running silently in the background without the user's knowledge. Apps that consume the least battery life in both usage scenarios are classified as "Green label", while those that covertly drain the most power are "Red label". Two other categories, "White label" and "Black label", refer to other less common power consumption patterns.
The report's findings conclude:
- The global average smartphone standby time is 21.7 hours, meaning that users on average must recharge their phone once a day.
- Germany had the longest phone standby time out of all countries polled, at 32.1 hours.
- Indonesia had the shortest phone standby time out of all countries polled, at 12.8 hours.
- Twitter, Viber, Spotify and other popular apps were classified as "Green label" due to the fact that they consume lower-than-average power when running in the front-end and in the background.
- Clash of Clans, Subway Surfer, Candy Crush Saga and other popular games were classified as "Red label" apps, as they consume battery life at a higher-than-average rate when running in the front-end and in the background.
The Global App Power Consumption Report can be downloaded at: http://www.duapps.com/news/release/2016-10-20/1.html, and on Medium, Facebook or the DU Labs Blog.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
