How the Industry is Improving Smartphone Battery Life
Trends and Best Practices
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.
Key Topics for Discussion
Power efficiency and battery life trends that are driving the industry
The challenges associated with power efficiency
How carriers and standards’ bodies are addressing these challenges
Use-case based evaluation based on actual results
Who Should Watch
Service providers including groups focused on user experience, marketing, device quality, acceptance and network quality
Device manufacturers, chipset and component providers including groups focused on user experience, power efficiency, marketing, field testing and acceptance and R&D
