    power efficiency theory

    Advertisement



    it is without question that the old brick phones have far superior battery life than the smartphones of today, but if I'm not mistaken the phones in the $9.99 category have more or less the same power efficiency as those old bricks. this leads me to the conclusion that phones with screens that have a high dpi and large screen use a considerable higher amount of power than those phones with a dpi of 140. let me explain my claim. I have a Samsung star. the battery on this thing lasts a min of 3days high usage. it has a low dpi and small screen. what I'm trying to say is if a Samsung galaxy s2 had a 3" screen with 140 dpi, its possible that the phone could last several days on single charge. do you guys think this is possible ?

    The screen is the greatest consumer of energy. I can imagine a Note II battery, a SIII baterry lasting weeks on a small screen ... but then again, who wants that? I´ve gotten used to the fact that batteries today need a continuous source of sustenance. And it´s not a hassle for me at all. I have it at home, in the car, at the office and even in the WC. So, I´m ready. Unless there´s a catastrophic power failure all over the place. But even like that I won´t worry. I´ve got my jungle drums stowed away for emergent situations.

    personally I have to criticize all phone makeres on the fact that they force us to use li-on batteries, why haven't they let us use rechargeable cell batteries ?

    here's the stats. a li-ion battery holding 1750 MHz is the same size as 8 AAA batteries at 1000MHZ each so 1750 MHz vs 8000MHz-clear to see which technology is superior. what they don't do it ? probably because they have their fingers in li-ion battery companies...but HTC is famous for buying other companies, why couldn't they just buy energizer or gold peak, there's also Duracell to consider aswell.

    by what you said Dell, it shows that the processor and 3G4G internet connections use just about zero power, but to prove the theory I just need to know what the battery life is of the S3 and N2. can't trust what those sites say, need real figures.

    thanks in advance

    the purpose of this thread was to see if there is a huge gap in power usage between high class screens and low class screens. its an experiment of mine. thank you for any contribution.

    specifically just how big that power usage gap is.

    Uhm..ok .
    Do V8 engines use more gas than 4 cyl?

    Does a 1.2ghz could use more battery than a 500 MHz?

    Do you want a phone with 8 AAA batteries for that extra 50?

    Is warp drive more/less efficient than light speed drives?

    Was Superman all that super?

    What cellphone does Batman use?

    It I stub my toe in the woods and no one is there to hear me, do I still scream?

    Are whirled peas +/- world peace?

    Do inquiring minds really WANT to know?

    Do bears really crap in the woods?

    Do I ever pass the tests of the emergency broadcast system?

    Is this thing on?

    ok. here's the question that I was hopping this thread would solve and it did to an extent:

    why do old or very cheap cellphones have much smaller batteries and yet have a far superior battery life when compared to top noch supperphones ?
