Smartphones have reduced the use of computers to an extent, but the one thing they most highly lack is battery life. Although the battery capacities have increased, the actual battery life remains the same if not lesser than previous generation of mobile phones. Samsung has now acknowledged the problem relating battery life especially in their devices and promises improvement !
According to Kevin Packingham, VP at Samsung product innovation, Samsung is trying to build phones whose battery lasts a full day under moderately heavy use. They know that battery life hasn’t been the best aspect of their smartphones but they’ve made progress.
They would improve battery life by using larger capacity batteries. But he also stated that power users might always end up facing the problem and that they would have to resort to carrying extra battery or using battery packs at least until solar power becomes popular. He also promised that 2012 will deliver better quality smartphones.
