One of the apps on the list is one that most have: Facebook. But the app of the largest social network in the world took the second position. First on the list was Puzzle & Dragons. Instagram, at its latest, appeared followed by Spotify, the music streaming service.

As many of these apps are becoming increasingly complex and feature rich, the performance of the handsets is also severely compromised beyond ideal, says AVG Brazil Marketing Director Mariano Sumrell.

The company has created a formula to achieve this result that takes into account not only battery usage, but also internet storage and traffic. The formula: (storage * 3) + (battery * 2) + traffic. Only the most popular applications were considered in the study.
