Samsung aims for all day battery life in future devices
If you are an Android user like me, chances are that you have experienced worries about battery life. While other smartphones have battery problems as well, Android devices are notorious for making users do various things to extend their battery life, and even then they will often die in the middle of the day.
Because of this trend, I wrote just last week about how it would be totally fine with me if manufacturers traded some of their smartphone's thinness for battery life. If Samsung gets their way, however, you won't have to worry about charging your smartphone even if it is thin. According to a company spokesperson spokesperson, "When you wake up to when you go to bed, we don't want you feeling anxiety about your battery life."
Presumably, this would mean at least 12 hour all day battery life, which would be quite a boon for the moderate users who find their brand new smartphone's battery dead a few hours after getting to work. Bigger batteries will be a part of this improvement, but considering how hard Samsung has worked for the thinnest smartphone title, a physically large battery seems unlikely. Instead, Samsung also plans to optimize WiFi scanning, LTE use, and make other software improvements.
Even though Samsung devices are often considered to have the better battery life than other manufacturer's Android phones, the company still says they aren't where they want to be. Hopefully, this means things will only get better from here.[CBS News]
