The proliferation of smartphones is retarded by energy inefficient applications and energy bugs. These energy bugs severely impact the user experience and cause significant user frustrations. To detect energy bugs, we need to characterize the power consumption behaviour of software. To achieve that, we develop an operational definition of energy bugs that can be easily translated to a procedure to detect them in smartphones. We integrate the proposed definition with a diagnostic framework to… CONTINUE READING
