Practical power consumption analysis with current smartphones


Conference Paper

© 2016 IEEE. In this paper, we analyzed the power consumption of all Samsung Galaxy smartphones to explore modern smartphones' power consumption characters. With dedicated measurement and analysis, we found that, some previously emphasized power hungry consumers, like Wi-Fi and multimedia codec, consume very trivial power in the modern smartphones; and video adaptation don't achieve significant power saving impact any more. Meanwhile, some other hardware component like cellular network module, GPU and camera emerge as considerable power consumers, and these might be the most efficient optimization objects for designing future power-efficient smartphones.
