Smartphone users continue to rank battery life as one of the most important and frustrating aspects of their overall user experience. The industry has responded with more power efficient silicon, OS-based power-saving features, and comprehensive pre-launch battery life evaluation for new device models. The debate continues over who has the most power-efficient silicon, the right number of processor cores or the best battery life, but the industry is increasingly aligned on one point: evaluation of battery life has to model realistic use cases.
Watch the Spirent / ABI Research on-demand webinar that details the best practices that leading carriers are deploying to evaluate and improve the battery life of pre-launch smart-phones. The webinar also features a case study to compare the battery life for two populations of smartphones and explores overall battery life trends, including the impact of battery capacity and power efficiency / current drain by use case.
