Nowadays usage of smartphone application has been reached great height. Web browsing on a smartphone takes a significant amount of power as it uses the features of 3G radio interface for downloading web pages. In this paper, two techniques are used to resolve this power consumption issue. In leading technologies, process computation sequence while loading a web page. Web browser first runs the computation that will generate new data transmission and put radio interface into low power state and release radio resource. Remaining computation is executed later. In the second technique, prediction of user reading time is performed using data mining techniques.
