Ever since phones got smarter (i.e. smartphones), one issue that has constantly popped up is battery life. Even high-end phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 haven’t been able to cope up with battery requirements. But that is set to change, according to Samsung.
In an interview to CNET, Samsung responded, “When you wake up to when you go to bed, we don’t want you feeling anxiety about your battery life.”
Samsung, it seems will start packing in bigger batteries in its phones. It will also start working optimizing features such as 4G LTE radio and Wi-Fi that drain a lot of power. One of Samsung’s efforts on this count is coming up with its first LTE phone, the Charge on Verizon. Verizon is a high-signal network, which saves your phone power on constantly searching for networks.
But don’t get too excited too soon as Samsung is still working on this department and hasn’t succeeded as yet. The charge is more of a test device and Samsung will take it further from there.
Battery is one arena where many people have tried and failed. In the past we have seen the Philips Xenium phones, which lasted long, but they were basic phones with a 2000 mAh battery that made them weigh a ton. And there is SpareOne, a phone that is claimed to last 15 years on one charge. But, getting these technologies to high-end phones while keeping the form factor and price unharmed is what Samsung needs to work on.
