It only means apple is great in designing their own moth... moreMotherboard size is dictated by the component sizes. This in turns dictate by the prices.
Any company can make small motherboards but they're constraint by cost.
Those tiny capacitors, resistors etc.. are expensive. Apple have to buy these from someone else. The actual skill is in the layout of the components which Apple outsourced.

NoToBrandLoyalty, 03 Nov 2017Still not that big a battery, I'm guessing the endurance will be around 60-70 hrs. They could ... moreAbsolutely. I've seen several batterey comparisons between The Iphone 7 plus and Mi max 2. The iPhone usually doesn't even provide half the authonomy the Mi max does, despite the fact that the iPhone's battery is more than half the size and the screen is smaller.
"Optimizations" are so overrated.
Two batteries...two speakers...Yet they "can't" put a decent-sized battery(s), 3.5mm jack, two sim slots or SD slot.
Not to mention they "can't" find space for the speaker so they just decided some of the screen is not needed. LOL...how pathetic is that?
NoToBrandLoyalty, 03 Nov 2017Manufacturers are already doing this way before Apple did it in the iPhone X. Microsoft alread... moreIf you read my comment again, you'll see that all I was saying was that Apple implementing this will make everyone else implement it. I never claimed or insinuated they were the first to do this. Apple never do things first, but when they eventually start doing them, the industry shifts.
mark, 03 Nov 2017you really don't get the point .. It only means apple is great in designing their own moth... moreIt also means that they are retarded regarding components routing as dual small idiotic batteries against 3D batteries design along with much better components placement we already seen from other OEM's resulting in 50% bigger battery capacity pack in.

I'm taking screenshots of all the comments about the dual battery. Can't wait till every other manufacturer on earth does this from now on.
NoToBrandLoyalty, 03 Nov 2017Still not that big a battery, I'm guessing the endurance will be around 60-70 hrs. They could ... moreYep. I've seen several battery comparisons between 7+ and mi max 2 on youtube. The iphone can't even last half the time the mi max 2 does, despite the fact that its battery is more than half the size and the display is smaller. "Optimizations" are soo overrated. No small battery can last even half a day with real hard usage. And that is totally not ok for a "flagship"
This is what iPhone addicts get, dual crappy batteries, 1300mah each, enough to keep you busy all day deciding how to be efficient
Still not that big a battery, I'm guessing the endurance will be around 60-70 hrs. They could have gone to a 3,000mAh+ battery.
NO amount of optimization will still match a bigger battery, especially with those massive screens. Even if it's OLED, it'll still drain a lot of battery with all that white colored UI (which iOS is notorious for), OLED only saves battery if it is a black UI.
Yeah, dual battery but oddly both only add up to 2716mah. Lol. Dual swelling and dual replacement. Double the price. Charging extra is Apple specialty. Ok, Apple want to do split battery but at least it should had been 4000mah. Like f**king seriously! Two battery but only 2716mah!!!
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2017sacrificing the motherboard for the sake of dual batteries really apple?you really don't get the point ..
It only means apple is great in designing their own motherboard.. imagine you can make a small motherboard than the usual motherboard of smartphone..
opt, 03 Nov 2017yeah yeah like what apple did to Samsung and other oems copy copy copy?ok ... ok ... samsung did it first.. samsung already used 2 battery 10 years ago... apple always copy samsung
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2017Yep. Doubles the chance for a problem and doubles the efforts to find replacementS.$$$$$$$$$
BiyoBiyo JunJun, 03 Nov 2017yeah... all phone will have dual battery after this ... Nah all will have a samoled and actually usable NFC after it. Oh wait is it 2015 already?
