Bin Jon, 13 Oct 2017More than 7 hours, or they attempt to, because the battery dies. they could use the phone while charging
Oven, 13 Oct 2017This is why bigger battery > Thinner phone any day.You could have both if we were to revert to removable battery.
Pretty much anything happening lately is to hurt battery life. Furst removal of the removable battery (infinite autonomy). This year the lowering of battery size by quiet a fraction.
All the while usage tomes on phone soar...
I think review sites are partially to blame. They call a phone an "one day phone" when it can barely do 5 hours of screen time and with battery life actually going down during the life of a phone, more like 4-4.5 hours screen on time. Those are half day phones. You need a 9 hour screen on time phone to call it a day-phone. There is only a tiny few of them and most mid rangers...
As long as people keep buying phones that need charging during the middle of the day a day phone would be a far cry ... what a pity. I used to never have to charge back in the removable days... We have made a gist step back in autonomy *as* usage rates soars... what an irony.
akw, 13 Oct 2017you can't talk about this , because the reason can be : Low income and Poor economic situationNot all Indians are poor. Majority are in Middle class and above. And yes what he said is absolutely right. Many Indians are tuned like that only. Many of my colleagues are rich enough to buy an iPhone X but still prefer upper mid range phones and buy/use the remaining money on something else. We dont have the luxury of carrier subsidies to enjoy whatever new phone comes out. Buy an Op5 and a DSLR/Laptop and can still save money instead of buying an X.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2017With this data I hope we'll gonna have 4000mAH as a minimum battery size, with a median of 5000mAH.That's pretty common for mid-range and upper mid-range phones which are more popular in developing countries, I think flagships will continue to use smaller batteries until more people who use their smartphone for extended period of time from these countries start buying them.
Damn who changes their phone every year and a half? And personally I wouldn't pay more than $400 for a smartphone they all basically perform and do the same thing anyway.
say no to apple, samsung, google, oppo, xiaomi amd others to stop manufacturing phones every year!!!!!!!!! (except nokia)
7+ hours only? You need to pump those numbers up. Those are Rookie numbers.
I am sorry to prick your bubbles but 3500 people's data worldwide can't be labelled as whole world.
Im always against trends.... Moto G (2013) here.... its complete trash noq days but cant justify the prie of new phones
If those people don't have computers and only computing device is phone still looks very bad, like sitting all day on a phone? People don't have jobs, no life?
More than 7 hours, or they attempt to, because the battery dies.
Hmm so maybe they should release phones and tech in india faster then.. And not make us pay twice the price for them after waiting for 6 months..
They are gamers maybe. Buy gaming console not phone. Phone isn't for heavy gaming.
zodiacfml, 13 Oct 2017Replacing the phone every 24 months?! I couldn't imagine myself doing that. I have a Nexus ... moreIn most developed countries, people get phones through a 2-year plan (24 months) and get a new phone at the end of their contract. Cuz they can.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2017Indians are hardwired to save money. Both in expenditure and savings. Lot of those Indians buy... moreyou can't talk about this , because the reason can be : Low income and Poor economic situation
Ali Bashir, 13 Oct 2017Japan every 26 months, well i am not surprised, and this is not a sign for poverty if you know... moreThere were other stat that say the bigger the screen size, the more people use the phone. BEcause when you have bigger screen, the productivity is increased.
Perhaps the japanese, because they like petite iphone, they're not too productive when using the phone, thus, they use it less hour/day compared to other, thus, the phone is not really important, thus, they don't upgrade as often as others.
ProJames, 13 Oct 2017Their test is based on the expected daily Usage. Phones aren't made to be on 8 hours a day ev... moretheir number of expected usage is NOT up to date with current standard. GSMArena need to update their method of getting the number, or GSMarena will be outdated, and not 'in'.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2017And then their test will lose "constancy" which is important.
Advice declined.what consistency??
They could update all of the other phone stats with one line of SQL code.
They could called it the battery test 2.0, or power user battery test number.
Replacing the phone every 24 months?! I couldn't imagine myself doing that.
I have a Nexus 5 and installed it with a nice ROM and it feels like new again.
I actually bought a S8+ a week ago but it is not an upgrade. My N5 is going to be a backup phone and still use it.
