Obviously BIG BATTERY (or slimmer battery, but removable.. so we can get 3rd party bigger battery from ZeroLemon etc). P2 is king, there is no other phone which can match it currently.
My s3 had an extended battery and the life went from 1 day to 3.
Note 2 again had a 24 hour battery life then with a Massive 9000mAh battery from zerolemon the life went to an insane 5 days or 14 hours screen on time, 3 hours of sat nav and a whole lot of calls, web browsing and so forth.
S5 went from a 2 day to 4 day with a zerolemon and was used heavily.
Note 8 has a zerolemon battery case and I get a few days extra charge out of the 10A battery pack.
With the extra power comes greater responsibility and you need to know how to use it.
I'm all for an extra mm or two for more battery. I really think this quick charge is just a cop out to make mobiles thinner and battery smaller.
In my job I don't have the luxury to sit at a desk so my power needs to be there with me.
It's a no brainer!
Bigger battery is better, even if it adds a mm or gram.
User replaceable battery is better still, your just swap out your flat one with a fresh one, simple.
If it's the wireless charging pad facility that's making this difficult, then I'd go without it.
Btw, you don't have to toss your handset when it no longer holds a fair charge, you can get it replaced professionally (about £40) or d.i.y. (about £20) but maybe the former & definitely the latter ruins any device IP, but why should you have to do this?
We should have user replaceable batteries keeping any IP intact, the S5 had this, I've told Samsung to reintroduce this, we'll see if they listened.
I want a thin phone with a removable battery, like the LG V10 No V20
another Lenovo P2 lover here ;-)
smaller battery's are build into the phones by OEMs solely for the purpose to force the user to have to buy a new phone in a 24-months cycle.
for example my old phone had 3070mah. bought on the 01.01.2016 its now 2.5years later and the battery has degraded down to 2500mah.
more factors also come into play.
a: older phones don't have the sensors for doze requirements.
b: more CPU intensives takes required with each new Android version.
sooner or later you as the end user will be forced into the cycle. the OEMs want you to be.
therefore I say fight it! stop buying phones below 4000-5000mah! give us more battery!
Well, an argument i can give is big battery and fast charging on the same package, and yes it exist
Device like huawei mate 10 and p10 prove that a phone doesn't need to be much thicker than the rest to have bigger battery, not to mention it also have fast charging so i don't see any real problem of having a bigger battery, in any case i don't even think that people will care if it did increase a couple of mm
There is something else to consider:
Battery life is measured in charge / discharge cycles.
You own a phone for a year and you cycle the battery say, 400 times more or less? Eventually it stops holding a charge as well as it used to.
Today, the trend is sealed batteries mainly. This means that after a certain amount of cycles, you have to dump your phone when it no longer holds a charge very well - as stated in the article with the 2 year old phone he has.
Larger batteries will require fewer cycles over a given amount of time because we charge them less frequently, meaning you can keep your phone longer.
Quick charging tech will not help with this. In fact, slower charging is probably healthier for your battery.
My $0.02 on the subject.
A big battery is what we need and no one will care if it is user removable or not.
I'd go for more battery, phones are already thin enough - how thin before it gets awkward to hold? effortless to break?
I'd much rather get more battery and have a 'thicker' phone. Even with quite a large increase in battery size, I think it wouldn't increase the size/thickness overly much.
I'd say keep making both. I don't mind a fairly thick phone as long as it slips easily in my pocket. But it's always about having a choice.
Screens, chipsets and other internals are becoming more efficient each year. I'd say fast charging with 7+ hours of screen on time are enough.
Who uses a phone more than 7 hours a day unless they eat, sleep, work, shower, etc while using their phone?
-DLS-, 10 Jun 2018I think we're actually at the point where we need laws to stop the manufacturers' insanity. Th... moreI totally agree. Gimme a phone with a thick 7000 mAh battery that can last me at least 3 days or more and I'm a happy man. I don't mind having a thick phone, what I don't want to do is charge my phone every single day.
My tend is Stamina. Looks is mere bonus. Huge battery is a must
My Lenovo P2 , 10 Jun 2018Wow the poll result showed that 80% of people prefer the battery over the design but mobile ma... moreMore battery is more thickness
When a phone has less battery you complain
When a phone has more battery and is thicker, a lot also complain
Just make a 10mm thick phone with 5000mah battery thats it not much thick and you get bigger battery but whats note important is OS optimization if a phone software is bad a 5000mah battery will get you a day only if software is great at battery management you can get 2days from a 3500mah battery and features like ultra power saving mode are important and should be available on all phones regardless of OS
And thinner phones are not comfortable to hold
Wow the poll result showed that 80% of people prefer the battery over the design but mobile manufacters don't even understand it...
Or... they understand it but if they'll produce smartphones with big battery, people aren't going to change theirs smartphones every year.
I would love to see a new Lenovo P3 with 18:9 format (6" screen) but I don't see Lenovo releasing a new version even if the P2 was a blockbuster... too bad I think the Mi Max 3 ( probably will feature the snapdragon 710 with 10nm manufacturing process) will be my new smartphone for this summer. I count on you Xiaomi
I want a replaceable back, where I can choose a big battery when needed and a slim when needed. Just like they did many many years ago.
I'm sick of the crooks planned obsolescence with fixed batteries!!
First thing first
Today's world Smartphone can't be handled by one hand
So thickness doesn't matter
BUT BATTERY LIFE DOES DOES DOES MATTER
We need minimum 5000mah battery
New processor always claims it will be less power hungry
But it changes nothing. It stays same or gets worst
So there's only one way "BIGGER BATTERY"
