iPhones Have 30% Less Battery Life than Apple Claims, According to New Report
A report from the Consumers’ Association, also known under the name of Which?, revealed that some companies such as Apple and HTC might be exaggerating their battery life claims.
We can all agree that battery life is one of the most important aspects when it comes to buying a new device. It might not be flashy as some of the other features, like a beautiful display or design, but if the battery is not up to par, there’s a good chance people won’t buy the device.
Companies usually test their phones before launch, and they list the battery performance when idle or for talk time. As users, we can only take them at their word, but companies are not going to shy away from embellishing the truth. For example, Apple was throttling the power of their older phones so that users don’t notice the shrinking battery life.
Which? findings are interesting but difficult to confirm
