Why is the battery life of your smartphone important?
The battery of your smartphone is the next most important thing after the processing unit. Smartphones nowadays tend to lose power very early and people face the brunt. Earlier phones with a black and white screen were high on power. Then came multimedia phones but multitasking was still not like we experienced on computers. Consumers wanted more and with this need of something more, smartphones came into existence. And it was not surprising that phones with touch screen started to surround us, putting more and more burden on the processing units.
Consumers now want even more, they want to watch high-quality movies on their phones, do video calling, play graphically rich games and possibly everything they can imagine to do with a smart device.
With such an increase in the use of smartphones for processing activities, the drainage of battery that provides juice to these smartphones also increases. Maintaining a right balance between the physical and application features that consumers will use to satisfy their hunger, and the battery is what mobile companies are now focusing on. Companies try their best to attain the right balance but they end up sacrificing one thing or the other.
