We all know very well that the battery capacity of smartphones is not always a feature that users of the current generation does not give any importance to it when buying any smartphone. However, later, the autonomy of the device is a very important aspect, forcing even the user to manage a set of actions to reduce the power consumption of the device. Hence, now according to the latest reports, the battery-life of smartphones are getting worse with each generation.
Battery-life Of Smartphones Getting Worse With Each Generation
The battery capacity of smartphones is not always a feature that users of the current generation does not give any importance to it when buying any smartphone. However, later, the autonomy of the device is a very important aspect, forcing even the user to manage a set of actions to reduce the power consumption of the device.
With new smartphone models coming to market every day, some of them at a good price, manufacturers do not want to bet heavily on their autonomy? Yes, it is true, that nowadays the smartphone manufacturers are not giving any importance to the autonomy, as they are only focusing the trend, which is device specs.
Most manufacturers promise “all day” battery life. However, with a normal use these days, is not always what happens. Hence, the device ends up giving service to its user.
Hence, now according to an article recently published in the well-known media channel, of course, I am talking about the Washington Post some smartphones which were released in 2019 have less autonomy than its predecessors, which were launched in 2017.
According to the tests, for example, the tech giant Apple’s well-known flagship smartphone, of course, iPhone XS has less autonomy than the past flagship smartphones, iPhone X and the Pixel 3 which also cannot guarantee more autonomy than the Pixel 2.
Hold on, as the negative highlight is also for the South Korean giant Samsung‘s recent flagship smartphone, of course, I am talking about the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ that have a range below the 9hrs.
According to Nadim Maluf, the CEO of Qnovo, the autonomy of batteries has been improving slowly, about 5% per year. However, the power consumption of the phones, in general, is growing more than 5%.”
Despite several developments at the SoC level, especially at the power level, the truth is that smartphones still can not offer a multi-day autonomy like the phones of a few years ago.
Certainly, in the future, everything may be different, but until then users are forced, in various situations, to hang around power banks and control the autonomy of their smartphones. So, what do you think about this? Simply share all your views and thoughts in the comment section below.
