Many consumers look at new smartphones being released and see how many features it has, and how fast the processor is. Trouble is as the demand for more powerful devices increases with new supercharged processors, battery technology has been left behind. There has been many great new handsets being released, but as users use more power hungry features such as 4G, battery life suffers. There is now a good chance that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will have an all day battery life.
Only yesterday we had reports that Samsung may have recently teased the device in a promotional video. But the company has set itself the target of all of its new smartphones having a one day battery life, which according to Cnet will be for average to moderately heavy use.
Vice president of Samsung’s product innovation, Kevin Packingham, said that the company doesn’t want customers having any anxiety about their battery life. Features such as larger displays, 4G LTE, and faster processors have all contributed to lower battery life on our smartphones.
Many devices have been plagued by the problem, and Motorola recently revealed the Droid RAZR MAXX with is slightly bigger form factor for a bigger battery. Samsung will now also use bigger batteries, but also look at better ways to optimize the device to make better use of features such as turning on the 4G LTE radio.
Now that the likes of Verizon have expanded their LTE network the device won’t have to always search out a connection. Even though improvements will be made heavy users will just have to get used to having a charger to hand, or other options to provide power.
Are you happy with the battery life from your handset?
