While the smartphone technology has developed rapidly in the 10 years, the biggest drawback is the stagnant battery technology. The Lithium-ion batteries that were used in less powerful mobile phones back in the 2000, is still being used in today’s smartphones.
The battery backup of those good old Nokia phones used to be much longer, only because their functionality was limited to voice calls, SMS and a 1 inch monochromic display. These days, we rely on our smartphones for almost every form of communication and more. Browsing the internet, watching movies, instant messaging (WhatsApp), Facebook, Twitter, phones calls and much more!
Battery life has become a major cause of concern because even flagship devices from companies like Apple and Samsung, do not last one full day of medium to heavy usage.
But there are a few phones that offer excellent battery backup and even last one full day of heavy usage or 2 days of medium to light usage.
