Abstract: The premise of this resesrch is that current smartphones power saving strategies can be improved towards saving more power and or gain more user satisfaction only if they start following preventive and or user customized power saving plans. This resesrch develops a number of preventive power saving strategies which help in saving the battery power without the need of using the power of the same battery for detecting abusers (detective strategies). Although, the focus of this work is on power-aware smartphone network wireless connections, other layers such as application, operating system and hardware layers of smartphones are of important interest to optimize our solutions across all layers. Smartphones cant work as stand-alone devices. They have to connect to a wireless network to do something useful. Bending network availability smartphones use on-demand strategy to connect to a specific network. This comes with a great deal of power consumption cost in addition to the cost of using the network if any. How to optimize this on-demand networking strategy using preventive and or user customized power saving plans acros multiple layers and wireless interfaces is the research of this study. A set of preventive customized power-aware connecting strategies are offered. Some of them are evaluated experimentally.
