Common Questions

Q: Does Motorola Hack drain my battery faster?

A: This app does NOT drain your battery. But as you get much more information about battery draining as before you feel that it is fast. In fact battery is draining by 1% every a few minutes of active usage. But before it jumped from 80% to 70% after eg. 10 or 15 minutes now you see 5% capacity decrease quiet quickly. This is NOT caused by my app but by your active usage of the phone. If you don't trust me, simply turn your phone into airplane mode during the night and see how much your phone drained your battery. It will be just a few percents.
