There are many stories abound about both data and power consumption of the hyped mobile games Pokémon GO. How much power and mobile data requires the game actually?
The game Pokémon GO is in record time been, public property, and that goes well almost not a single day, without that it has drawn new headlines.
These have, among other things, provided the game’s consumption of power and data-or perhaps the lack thereof-of the stories have been many.
Is Pokémon GO really such a power-and data-hungry games, as passing stories about? It gets you here an insight into.
Swallows power like no other game
After the release of the game went quickly up to everyone that Pokémon GO uses a lot of power. It is primarily due to the fact that GPS must be constantly turned on and that you are in normal game mode can not find pokémonner while the monitor is off. Therefore running two extremely power-hungry parts of the smart phone for full blast at the same time and it goes so hard out of battery time.
Many Web shops and distributors, recognizing the possibility for a lightning fast high sale of power Bank – portable batteries for charging of the smart phone, and with good reason. The website CNET has made a test of how great a power consumption that is about Pokémon GO.
The test is done on an iPhone 6s with a brightness of about 80%, while all the bag grunds apps is disabled. The 30 minute-long trip resulted in that the battery was drained by 15%. But how much is that exactly? It will in the case of this iPhone equivalent to around 3 hours of continuous play on a fully charged battery-provided that the other is not running in the background.
However, many other factors play into how many hours of game play Pokémon GO you can get out of your smartphone. It is, among other things, how well the GPS signal you have, what smartphone you use (processor, screen resolution), screen brightness, cell coverage in the area and not least the battery size.
Likewise, you can achieve better battery life by enabling batterisparetilstanden in the game, which now makes it possible to play with off screen, but only when the app can detect that your phone pointing down in your pocket. When a pokémon is approaching you, the phone will then vibrate. This feature is selected the game’s developers, Niantic, to remove from the iOS version, but the turns are now back again, after an error has been fixed.
Only 20 MB of mobile data after an hour
Completely opposite battery consumption, there is almost no data consumption that find in Pokémon GO. A story recently on, went to a Japanese gymnast should have gotten a mobile Bill at 33,000 DKK for playing Pokémon GO abroad because of the game’s data usage.
Such a high expense, however, are not exclusively from the Pokémon GO. With a roamingafgift on 1.5 euro per MB of data, for example, will it require a data usage in Pokémon GO on all 22 GB.
The equation does not go up, since Pokémon GO only uses relatively few MB of data over a period of about an hour. Both CNET and Android Authority experience a data usage in Pokémon GO on about 20 MB at a time, while according to Pokémon GO DB only lies at between 2-8 MB of data per hour. The Japanese gymnast should therefore have reached to play Pokémon GO in whole 1,000 hours or approximately continuously for a month and a half to get a such an expensive Mobile Bill.
There has simply been other baggrundsapps who have used data instead of Pokémon GO, because there are practically no intensive graphical elements in the game to load. Google Maps-the map, which is used to load only in small chunks in the area around you.
Equally power hungry Pokémon GO is just such a low data usage has it, so it’s hardly Mobile Bill, you have to worry about, as long as you are within the country’s borders, but on the other hand, the battery life.
