Disclosed herein is a communication device, which comprises a user trace manager, a power emulator, and a power impact estimator. The user trace manager manages a user's sensor usage trace and device usage trace, which shows the user's mobile device usage pattern. The power emulator executes an executable file of the mobile application to generate hardware usage statistics based on the sensor usage trace and the device usage trace. And the power impact estimator computes an increase in power consumption of the mobile application based on the hardware usage statistics.
