All people who use their smart phones with any regularity have doubtless been stuck in a meeting or been on the go when they noticed that their phone’s battery was nearly dead. Sometimes it can be hard to believe because the phone’s battery sometimes even seems to deplete early in the day.
Smart phone owners have been struggling with this problem for years. The options for fixing it are minimal: (1) Use the phone – especially the data — less or (2) carry an extra battery or a charger with you throughout the day. The problem with these solutions is that it is often not practical to carry a charger or a battery with you all day long. Likewise, you are probably paying a fairly significant amount for your data service, so it makes little sense to pay for something you don’t use.
Samsung has recognized that the problem of short battery lives is a problem that must be dealt with. The company announced on Jan. 12, 2012 that it has the goal that all smartphones that it produces this year – and going forward – will be able to last all day long, even when the phones experience moderately heavy use. This means that as long as you protect your phones with Samsung cases, you should not have any problem throughout the course of the day to use your phone as much as you’d like.
Samsung’s ultimate goal is to alleviate the concerns that smart phone users have about battery life from the time they leave home in the morning to the time when they return home in the evening. Samsung hopes that the status of consumers’ batteries will be the farthest thing from their minds during the course of the day.
Battery life has not always been as big of a problem as it is now. It used to be that Samsung smart phone users only needed to make sure they had items like Samsung Galaxy cases or Samsung Galaxy Nexus cases and then they were set for the day. Now, thanks to the fact that smart phones have so many features – such as larger screens, faster processors and 4G LTE – owners of these phones have found that battery life is always on their minds.
So how is Samsung going to fix this? The answer is simple – and complicated. The simple answer is that the batteries that Samsung creates for its phones going forth will be larger than previous versions. This means that smart phone owners may need to get used to slightly larger and bulkier smart phones. This may also result in newer versions of Samsung cases.
The more complicated answer is that Samsung is working to develop its phones so that they will better optimize the various aspects of the phones, meaning that they will use less battery life as they operate more efficiently when they do things like look for a Wi-Fi network and run multiple applications at one time.
The announcement couldn’t have come at a better time for Samsung. The company is riding a wave of positive publicity after overtaking Apple in 2011 in shipments and sales. Much of this success is due to the immensely popular Galaxy S II. Likewise, sales for complimentary items, such as Samsung Galaxy S II cases, have also risen.
Because Samsung implemented new technologies in 2011 – such as new chips and 4G LTE – the Samsung smart phones released in 2012 are expected to be well polished and slick. The extra battery life for these phones certainly will only help Samsung’s goal to continue growth in 2012 and going forward.
