impact on data usage and battery


New Member

Some Adguard competitors make the following claims:
  • "load many websites 3-5 times faster"
  • "browse faster"
  • "will greatly extend battery life"
  • "limit bandwidth use"
  • "speed up your device"
  • "Web-browsing faster than you knew was possible."
  • "all the junk that slows you down is gone"
  • "pages often load 4x as fast"
  • "saves you 50% of your data usage"
One competitor has a very cool page-load-comparison graphic.

It makes sense that blocking content from being downloaded would improve data and battery usage, but I have found few references to this for Adguard.

Do you have any estimates of how much Adguard improves data and battery usage for iPhone (or just in general)?

Generally speaking, everything stated above is true for any content blocker.

The thing is that exact numbers depend on a website and on the set of filters you have enabled in Adguard.
We've done such test for Android version lately and the result was about 40% bandwidth saved for the following test websites:
