The iPhone is a shortcoming, and they have not been well solved. Users are also very eager to solve this problem. On this year’s new iPhone, this problem has not improved.
The “Washington Post” technology channel tested the battery life of the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. Samsung Note 9, iPhone 8 Plus, Pixel 3 XL, Samsun, S9, S9 Plus, etc. As a result, the Washington Post believes that the main reason for the shortened life of the new generation of iPhone batteries is the OLED screens used. On the contrary, the iPhone XR has an excellent battery life. One of the reasons is the LCD screen.
There are many factors that affect battery life, such as the applications used, wireless connectivity, and screen brightness, but the Washington Post believes that the battery life of high-end smartphones like the iPhone is shortening from generation to generation. Obviously, this is contrary to people’s conventional cognition.
From the results, the iPhone XR can reach 12 hours and 25 minutes, while Note 9 is 12 hours, iPhone 8 Plus is 10 hours and 10 minutes, Pixel 3XL, iPhone XS Max is 10 hours and 7 minutes and 10 hours and 6 minutes, iPhone The XS is even worse, only 9 hours and 9 minutes, but better than the Samsung S9 Plus and S9, which are 8 hours and 57 minutes and 8 hours and 17 minutes respectively.
The Washington Post combined the stations CNET, Consumer Reports, and Tom’s Guide to analyze the results of the battery life. They finally came to the same conclusion: the OLED screen used by the new iPhone is the culprit. The reason why the iPhone XR battery has a long life is that it uses an LCD screen. The stunning OLED screens used in the iPhone XS and XS Max are really eye-catching. But compared to traditional LCD screens, OLED screens consume more power. At the same time, this extra power is beyond the power saved by battery technology improvements.
CEO of battery optimization technology company Qnovo, said: “Battery technology improvements are very slow, with only about 5% improvement per year. By contrast, mobile phone power consumption has increased by more than 5%.”
