We’re always impressed with Samsung’s continuous improvements of device CPUs, displays and designs, but one area that has seen stagnation across...

Over the years we have seen substantial leaps in mobile device technology, from ridiculously high DPI displays to quad-core GPUs, the mobile arena has been absolutely teeming with bleeding edge hardware. One section we have failed to see nearly as much improvement is in the battery life and technology of smartphones. The original Galaxy S had a 1500 mAh lithium ion battery,...

It seems like it was only a few years ago when the ability to have the full web experience was a far-fetched dream. The phone hardware back then was a far cry from what we have in Q4 of 2011, and the network speeds didn’t exactly make 56k modems green with envy. With the advent of 3G, 4G and WiFi capable smartphones, all of this has changed. Yet with all these stellar...

One of the oft overlooked but extremely important hardware specs on today’s do-everything smartphones is its battery life. As you can see in the ‘Power saving tips’ above (it can be reached through Settings > Power saving mode > Power saving tips), there are multiple points of power management that can be addressed. We at CareAce have extensively...

Part 1 introduced the fundamentals of lithium ion batteries, and methods to extend their lives over the long run. Now lets focus on increasing battery life on a day-to-day basis. Winning the Battle on Battery on Life Many different usage factors affect battery longevity, but the main culprits are the display, processing, and network usage. Although cranking up the brightness...

Although processor speed, display quality and connectivity get all the spotlight in today’s mobile device market, consumers often forget that these factors often belie the phone’s actual usability when factoring in battery life. Taking Care of your Lithium-Ion Battery Lithium ion batteries generate power by moving lithium ions from the negative to the positive...

Samsung later this year will use Phase Change Memory (PCM or PRAM) as a new form of memory in smartphones.  PRAM is a type of non-volatile computer memory.  Instead of regulating electron states (Flash memory), it uses chalcogenide glass, which can be “switched” between two states, crystalline and amorphous, with the application of heat.  An article of...

If you are the first Android smartphone user, you are probably not loving the battery life. The full charge last for under a day, somewhat short when compare to featured phones which goes for about 3 to 5 days or most of the Windows Mobile phones which can also last for about 2 to 3 days. The main reasons for the high drainage of the battery life is the constant network...

WMLongLife is an automatic 2G/3G band-switching solution. It will keep your device in 2G when you do not need to use 3G, and will switch to 3G automatically when you do need it. WMLongLife is an application for the data plan era. Assuming that you will be using your internet connection most of the time, the battery life is certainly not going to last as long as they use...

Battery life is an issue that, for many people determines the quality of a mobile device. Have a fancy gear with no battery to enjoy it can be quite a let down. While released hardwares may not be easily modified to improve its performance, there are some registry tweaks that you may try to increase your device’s battery life. Objective Increase battery life of...
