Recently I came to see an app  in the playstore named "Battery Life Repair Pro" with a 4.7 star rating from almost 190,961 ratings and almost more than 1 million downloads.Seems intresting and I  thought I should try it out.

It claims to repair your battery and basically looks like a hard drive defrag program.

So here's what the app supposedly does—Battery Life Repair analyzes your battery "data cells" to see which ones are under-performing (okay, whatever). Then it magically fixes them and improves your battery life by unrealistically huge margins. You want more imaginary features? . While you're at it, better download more RAM.
Anyone who knows much about technology will immediately be suspicious of this app's claims. If it were possible to wave a magic wand over your battery and fix the "data cells," you can be sure the engineers who made your phone would have built that into the software. The fact that so many real people (and probably some bots) are praising this app is a tribute to confirmation bias and the power of the placebo effect. Consider this a cautionary tale.
So come on, Google. Get this junk out of the Play Store.
