Viliv S7 photographed, battery life tested in Korea


One of the Viliv S7 convertible UMPC's advertised highlights is that its 4700mAh lithium polymer battery has the potential to provide "true all-day computing" up to a reported 9.5 hours. This bold claim is the first thing the team at in Korea sought to investigate after providing a detailed hardware overview of the Atom-based device, which boasts a 7-inch swiveling touchscreen (1024 x 600) and various configuration options.

The results? Though never able to cross the 8-hour mark in their tests, which were by no means exhaustive, the S7's real-world runtime will still be considered a plus by both reviewers and users alike. Battery figures and photos below.


  • Video playback: 6 hours, 13 minutes (DivX, 720 x 400, 1.64Mbps, wireless off, max screen brightness); 7 hours, 28 minutes (XviD, 640 x 480, 1.64Mbps, wireless off, mid screen brightness)
  • Korea@Home distributed processing: 5 hours, 45 minutes (WiFi on, max screen brightness)
  • DMB viewing: 6 hours, 50 minutes (full-screen, wireless off, mid screen brightness)
