2010 To 2020 may well go down in chronicles as the commencement of the age of the smartphone.
Already in the US smartphones make up a quarter of all mobile phone sales and some are even expecting the sales of the smartphone to take over that of the personal computer by 2012.
This popularity of smartphones stems from the fact that they are more than merely plain cell phones and are practically the do-it-all devices in the electronics gadgets world. They can make calls and send SMS just like mobile phones, but they can also be a mini-computer, music and video player, web browser, personal organizer, and digital camera all rolled into one. And all this is done through a state-of-the-art multi-touch screen.
The Problems With Smartphones: Battery Life
In spite of this, this multiplicity of features and functions will take its toll on the Smartphone’s battery life. The quality and working life of a Smartphone’s battery is one of the leading considerations when choosing a particular brand or product. It would really be a great disadvantage for you to run out of battery juice at the exact moment that you want to use your smartphone the greatest.
Standard mobile phones can give you up to 400 hours of standby time and over ten hours of talk time for a fully charged battery. Smartphones on the other hand, require more juice for all its functions and can only typically give you five hours of talk time and just 150 hours of standby time on the average. Later models can reach 300 hours standby time and up to 10 hours chat time but these figures would decline significantly when you play multimedia files, surf the web, or play games.
