Dolphin Browser Introduces Dolphin Companion To Help Save Your Phone’s Battery Life

The folks over at Dolphin know that our device’s battery life is our biggest concern. What good is a web browser with flash capability if my battery life takes a crash on me within minutes of using it? Dolphin Companion to the rescue!  Without having to leave your browser,  Dolphin Companion offers system setting preferences which will hopefully boost your device’s life.

Offered are three different profiles to help your phone last as long as possible:

Extreme profile: For the most extreme circumstances, such as being stuck in an avalanche with almost frozen fingers, 6% remaining battery life and dismal network connection. This is the least battery-consumption mode which immediately turns your smartphone to receive only Call and SMS functions and no data connectivity.

Balanced profile: For the more balanced, less extreme lifestyles that have constant and regular access to charging outlets. This is the default mode with all call and SMS functions and power sucking data connectivity is switched on so you can browse whatever and whenever.

Normal profile: Don’t want to optimize your battery life? Dolphin will keep it as normal.

Feel like giving it a go with your Dolphin Browser? It is not available on the Market yet, but you can download and install as you would any 3rd-party app here. You will have to install Dolphin HD in order to get this to work though.

    $10 says in the next few months these ‘battery savers’ end up being like how task killers are now.  A waste of space with lots of misinformation.

  • Thanks
    for sharing such an interesting information.

    They need to publish numbers on how many hours of battery life it really saves.
    Also, how does this compare to popular Android battery saver apps like JuiceDefender?

    Anyone remember the early builds of Dolphin with the YouTube downloader built in????? Everyone bugged out on here when they took it out. I probably have 15gigs of videos from that thing in my Dropbox from the early OG days. Actually stopped using it for a while after they removed that & they started bloating it up. Started using Miren for a loooong time, but a few months ago tried out Dolphin again just to switch it up & loved it. My default ever since. Fast/smooth & love the bookmark sync across all my Android devices & even goes cross-platform to the iPad version flawlessly. That being said, I don’t use any of the add-ons b/c they just bog it down, but I LOVE that the devs keep them as optional downloads & don’t force them on the user. Regarding the article, ill have to get off Dolphins junk & say I have absolutely no interest in this “battery-saver at all. An app to modify connections that is integrated intomy web browser??? Really Dolphin?? Your better than this.

    This seems incredibly pointless.

    I won’t trust these guys with access to phone settings given their track record of privacy violations.

    Wow, some of you are so lame. If there was only,”nexus news” this site would not be worth visiting. Some of you worship “nexus” like it is a god,but it isn’t, so get a life and wait patiently.

    Perhaps if Dolphin stayed true to their original intent, a speedy browser – and didn’t bog down the app with a battery saver and an auto-brightness feature that gets in the way of my system auto-brightness setting – maybe it wouldn’t suck so much juice.

    Need more details… It seems strange that a browser app would be managing battery consumption.

  • It just claimed it add 5 hours and 30 minutes to my Rezound’s battery life…do you think it will work?

      Depends on what you do to drain your battery. I am using Juicedefender ultimate on my Rezound and it’s made a pretty dramatic difference. If you are killing your battery using LTE to surf the net, nothing short of a bigger battery would help.

    Ok Kellex, no more posts about anything but the Nexus from now until Launch day (whatever that may be…)

    • Ok deal, and then no more posts about it ever again? Seriously I tire of the numerous posts about the same damn phone. Lump it all into one post, call it a day. I can’t wait til we can get back to regular Android news.

        TOTALLY agree! but for now…..Only Nexus All the time.

    So while you’re stranded in the avalanche, you can only wait for someone to call you to find out that you’re stranded.  I don’t see how this could go wrong.

      That’s why I always check in on Foursquare first whenever I’m stranded in an avalanche.

  • I thought Dolphin only makes Browsers. This seems like it has nothing at all to do with the browser.

      What could be more useful than a browser that turns off your data connection?
