Which smartphones have the best battery life? Having a good battery shouldn’t’ be a subject of discussion today because technology is improved on many fields. But, we can conclude from the conversations with people that manufacturers didn’t try enough in recent past and that problems with battery life are still present. Telephones are becoming bigger and bigger every year, and the new versions of popular phones require a better battery because there is a lot of new features on phones, bigger display and because of the new options, people use these devices even more. All that contributes to increased battery consumption. When we buy a new phone, how long will the battery last, shouldn’t be the main topic, but unfortunately, exactly that you will discuss with the salesman and in most cases, you will get the answer about maximum one day without charging.
Some companies are trying to find the solution for this problem. Apple is interested in implementing solar charging into their devices. They employed the best engineers and battery experts from Toyota, Tesla and A123 battery company to come up with new battery technology. Sony started to use Snapdragon 821 chipsets which optimize processors in order to save energy of the batteries. The newest mobile phones of Samsung Electronics (Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge) come with 3000mAh and 3600mAh battery capacities, which is a move in right direction. But, while these companies are working on this, devices with an average or even worse quality of batteries are hitting the markets and we will have these problems in near future.
