Abstract: Because of increasing popularity of mobile devices their applications and infrastructure tends to advance quickly. The use of Smartphone’s for the efficient content sharing among the wireless Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN) is growing worldwide. There are many methods recently presented by various researchers for efficient content sharing in DTN. However these methods are suffered from the various limitations. Hence this area of research is still challenging problem for researchers. Most of methods presented for content sharing are based on prediction of whether two nodes would encounter each other, regardless of considering the time and place of the encounter. But this method has many limitations which were later overcome by recently presented method. The recent method presented is based on discover-predict-deliver which is practically resulted as improved and efficient content sharing scheme for delay-tolerant Smartphone networks. However the limitation of this method is excessive battery power consumption which limits the lifetime of Smartphone. In this paper we have designed the method for android Smartphone in order to minimizing the batter power consumption. This method tries to use the idle times of Smartphone in order to stop applications like , Bluetooth and various other applications which are consuming the battery power during the idle condition. Also while sharing contents we will focus on file transfer rate, transmission cost and security.
