Acer CloudMobile battery life results, a fair battery life as expected


The latest offering from Acer features a dual-core 1.5GHz Krait CPU, and pushes out an 4.3 inch HD display on Adreno 225 graphics.
It’s seems that this is quite a lot to ask from a 1460 mAh battery, but let’s if it’s up to the task.
Nowadays, most similarly-spec’d devices easily break the 2 Amp mark when it comes to battery backup, so seeing one this much lower makes us wonder if it’ll be enough get you through the day.
Our talk time numbers seemed promising enough, and a rating of 9:05 was enough to put the CloudMobile in the top half of our chart.

Talk time

  • Motorola RAZR MAXX (ICS)21:18
  • HTC Sensation XL9:30
  • Nokia Lumia 7109:05
  • Acer CloudMobile S5009:05
  • Motorola Atrix HD9:04
  • HTC Vivid9:02
  • Pantech Burst4:46
Web browsing wasn’t as impressive, and we saw the S500 fall towards the bottom of the pack. An eventual Jelly Bean update will probably improve it’s endurance, but you shouldn’t expect miracles.

Web browsing

  • Apple iPhone 59:56
  • Meizu MX4:35
  • Nokia N94:33
  • Acer CloudMobile S5004:32
  • Samsung Galaxy S II4:24
  • Sony Ericsson Xperia neo V4:20
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus3:01
Video playback again leaves us wanting. If you plan on using the S500 as a media player, you’ll get about 5:18 hours of continuous video viewing on a full charge.

Video playback

  • Motorola RAZR MAXX (ICS)16:35
  • HTC Rhyme5:23
  • HTC One V5:20
  • Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T5:18
  • Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T5:18
  • BlackBerry Curve 93805:09
  • Nokia Lumia 7103:27
Finally, standby performance was about average and the Acer CloudMobile scored an endurance rating of 30h.
When all’s said and done, the CloudMobile S500 will get you through the day, but only if you’re sparing in your usage – particularly in video and web browsing. Here’s hoping that next time around, Acer will consider beefing up the battery in what’s otherwise a pretty great device

Banks show interest in helping Sony sell off battery business


Article cited from http://thenextweb.com by Batterybay.net
Sony Battery Business will be sold very soon
Multiple investment banks have contacted Sony about assisting in the sale of the beleaguered electronics maker’s battery unit, Reuters reports.
Sony has been in the throes of a dramatic corporate overhaul over the past year, and its battery business, which it estimates is worth $633 million, would make a lot of sense for cutting costs and reducing headcount. Reuters notes that the division employs 2,700 workers and booked $1.74 billion in sales last year. Manufacturing giant Hon Hai and Chinese carmaker BYD were said to be some of the interested parties.
The publication’s sources said that at least three banks had approached the company. A Sony spokesperson declined to comment on the potential sale of the division when contacted by Reuters, but he did reiterate an earlier statement from the company that said it was looking into “possible alliances in E-vehicle batteries and battery storage”.
In 2006, Sony’s battery business issued a large-scale recall of laptop batteries after it was discovered that some of them posed a fire hazard to customers. Fujitsu, Gateway, Sony, Toshiba, Apple and Dell were all affected by the recall. Another recall took place in 2008.
During the third quarter of this year, Sony managed to bring in $20 billion in revenue, but it had a net loss of $198 million. It did however, achieve operating income of $388 million, compared to an operating loss of $20 million in the year ago quarter.
The electronics maker, which has been hard hit by slowing TV sales, plans to cut 10,000 employees from its headcount in its restructuring, which began in April and will cost nearly over $900 million. The company sold off its chemical business for $730 million in June.
Comment from Batterybay.net Staff:
The selling of the battery business by Sony will cause impact on the price of battery cell in the coming future. Price of the battery in the market, therefore, is to vary very soon. Fortunately, Sony battery cell is not widely use in OEM battery industry and so the price of battery on Batterybay.net is not likely to be affected. If there is any pressure on the price on battery manufacturing, Batterybay.net technical team will try their best to minimize the production cost and maintain the low price advantage of Batterybay.net to provide customers with good battery at low cost!!

Motorola Takes Smartphone Battery Life to the Max


Article cited from http://allthingsd.com by Batterybay.net
Smartphones do a lot of things. They let you send and receive email and browse the Web. They double as media players, navigation systems and gaming handhelds. And, oh yeah, they also make calls. But all this functionality takes a toll on battery life, and with moderate to heavy use, you’re probably looking for an electrical outlet before the end of the day.
Motorola wants to change that.
The company’s Droid Razr Maxx HD smartphone for Verizon Wireless features an extra-large battery that claims up to 32 hours of performance or 23 hours of talk time, and improves on the previous model with a sharper display. I’ve been using the Droid Razr Maxx HD for the past couple of weeks, and the battery life is the best I’ve seen on a smartphone yet. It’s the Energizer Bunny of the smartphone world.
But it also comes with a hefty price tag. The Droid Razr Maxx HD costs $300 with a two-year contract, which is $50 to $100 more than some of today’s high-end smartphones, such as the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III. The camera is also mediocre, at best. Even so, for those who are constantly on the go or are particularly demanding on their devices, I have no hesitation in recommending this Motorola device.
I did several battery-drain tests on the Droid Razr Maxx HD. First, I simulated a continuous voice call with Wi-Fi on, allowing the screen to time out after 30 seconds, and the smartphone offered 22 hours of talk time — an hour short of Motorola’s claims, but still impressive.
By comparison, Apple’s estimate for the iPhone 5 is up to eight hours of talk time, while the Samsung Galaxy S III is estimated at up to 17 hours.
In another test, I played a loop of video that I downloaded from the Google Play store. With the screen brightness set at 75 percent, and with Wi-Fi on and email running in the background, the Droid Razr Maxx HD lasted 13 hours before displaying a “low battery” alert.
Of course, those tests don’t really simulate how we use smartphones in the real world, so I also kept note of battery life during day-to-day use. With moderate use — checking email and social networks, listening to music, browsing several Web sites and streaming a couple of YouTube videos over Verizon’s 4G LTE network — I was able to go about a day and a half before I needed to recharge. Meanwhile, my colleague Walt Mossberg got betweennine and 12 hours of battery life from the iPhone 5 with mixed use.
To see how it would hold up, I also added more power-hungry tasks, such as GPS navigation, playing games and streaming longer videos, and the smartphone was able to hang in for almost 24 hours. When I use similar apps on my iPhone 4, I’m usually scrambling for my charger after about eight hours or less.
The only downside is that the battery isn’t removable, so you can’t replace it with a spare if your phone dies and you can’t get to an outlet. But most people don’t use removable batteries, anyway.
With larger batteries, you can run into the issue of thick, cumbersome designs, but the Droid Razr Maxx HD doesn’t have that problem. At 5.19 inches tall and 2.67 inches wide, it’s not compact, but it’s thin at less than half an inch thick. It fit into my back jean pocket or purse with no problem.
I also appreciated the phone’s solid construction. The handset is built with sturdy materials like Kevlar fiber, and even has a water-repellent coating to safeguard it from accidental splashes. I can’t stand phones that feel like plastic (ahem, Samsung), and if I’m going to pay $300 for a phone, I want something that feels like it won’t break if I accidentally drop it. This device meets that requirement.
The Droid Razr Maxx HD’s 4.7-inch HD touchscreen is also protected by an extra layer of glass to prevent scratches. The display’s resolution is improved over the original Droid Razr Maxx, coming in at 1,280 by 720 pixels compared to 960 by 540 pixels. Text and images looked bright and clear, and colors were vibrant, if a bit oversaturated.
The smartphone ships running Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Motorola says the phone will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean before 2013, which will bring enhanced search and more detailed notifications, among other features. But the company didn’t have any information on when the phone might receive Android 4.2, which ships on the Nexus 4.
Unfortunately, the smartphone is overloaded with extra apps from Verizon. These include programs like Verizon Video and V Cast Tones. And there’s no way to uninstall the apps. The Droid Razr Maxx HD offers 16 gigabytes of internal memory with a microSD expansion slot, which is annoyingly hard to access and requires a special tool (included in the box) or a bent paperclip to open.
The only major downside of this smartphone was its eight-megapixel camera. Even in natural lighting, photos looked slightly dark. As a result, some of the finer details were hard to see in the images. The quality was even worse when shooting pictures indoors.
Still, the pros far outweigh the cons of this device. Call quality was remarkably clear on both ends of the conversation, and I didn’t experience any dropped calls during my testing. Verizon’s 4G network provided swift data speeds. I also found general performance to be smooth, with very little lag.
If you can afford it and battery life is of utmost importance to you, the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD will not disappoint.

Comment from Batterybay.net staff:
It is nice to hear that Motorola is now cooperating closely with google to develop something that is wanted by most of the Android users. Apparently when we check on twitter about comment of Android or iOS smartphone, battery life is the most concern topic nowadays. Of course the processing speed of the mobile is the most important, the faster speed to to a faster energy drain out. A better battery is needed!! Although we cannot state that Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD achieve the purpose, we can at least know that Google and Motorola are working very hard to fulfill users desire for a smartphone with longer battery life. Here we, Batterybay.net staffs, acknowledge these two of the greatest entrepreneur in the world for giving us a better technology for better life!!

How to get the most out of your phone’s battery


A little over a year ago, we did an article on how to squeeze some extra battery life out of your phone. Most of those tips still apply, but Android has changed a lot since mid-2011, and I’m sure everybody could use a few extra tips on how to get your phone to last a few hours longer. A few of these things are simple, and have already been in past articles, but there’s a few tricks that most people don’t think about when they’re trying to conserve battery life. We’ll start with the basics and move up into the more complex things you can do to keep your device alive.
1. Pay attention to your screen.
The screen is the biggest culprit of battery drain. With newer screens pushing 1080p resolution, it takes a lot of juice to power those displays. You can’t remove pixels from your screen, obviously, so you’re going to want to pay attention to your brightness and your screen timeout. The brighter the screen, the more power it’s going to pull, so you’re going to want to keep that as low as you can stand it. Dim screens aren’t good for watching movies or using the device outside, though, so depending on your usage, your phone’s autobrightness may be the way to go. You can also use apps to lower the screen brightness below the minimum to manager your battery more effectively at night or in extremely dim rooms.  Night Mode is one such app, and it works extremely well. (Play Store link here)
Screen timeout is also important. If you set your phone down while answering a text and forget to turn off the screen, it’s going to chew through your battery if the timeout is set too high. Keeping this low (30 seconds or so) will keep things like that from happening. This can be a problem if the phone times out while you’re reading a news article, however. Samsung’s Galaxy line of phones hasSmartStay, which fixes this by keeping the device awake only as long as you’re looking at it. An app called ISeeYou attempts to replicate that feature for those of you without a newer Galaxy phone.
2. Radios and phone signal
4G is one of the biggest new features to happen to cell phones lately, and it’s growing exponentially faster so more people can have access to those faster data speeds. There’s just one problem with 4G: battery drain. Specifically, LTE. HSPA+ is harder on the battery than any 3G, but not by much. LTE is a battery monster. It’s good for your battery life – and data cap – to be aware of when you’re on 4G and how much you’re using it. Sitting around the house and casually browsing the internet? WiFi is the way to go. Not at home, but not really using your phone to do any kind of serious downloading? Turn your 4G off.
This also applies to your GPS and Bluetooth on your device. If you aren’t using them, keep them turned off to avoid the unnecessary battery drain. GPS can be turned off in location settings, and usually from the quick settings tabs in many versions of Android. Bluetooth is also controlled through settings and quick settings.
3. Watch your applications.
Smartphones are powerful. They sync with Facebook and Twitter, they can do all kinds of word processing and run office apps, and they offer an excellent multimedia experience with games and videos. This probably won’t come as a shock to many of you, but if you watch Netflix on 4G on your phone’s 4.8-inch screen, it’s not going to last more than a few episodes. High-resolution games are even worse, but in addition to the cell signal, they’re also exercising your processor and GPU. It’s common sense, but if you need to make your phone last until you get home, avoid video streaming and games.
Sometimes, though, an application can chew up your battery without being active. Facebook, for example, has had notorious wakelock issues on phones while syncing. This can be easily checked by looking at your battery settings on your phone. The location of that is different for each phone, but it’s usually set up in its own battery menu, or in the about phone section. The graph there shows your phone’s awake time, and below that shows what apps are eating up battery. If your phone is constantly awake for eight hours and Facebook is using more battery power than your screen, you can probably figure out what’s going on.
Killing applications on Android has always been a hot topic. Irresponsibly using task managers to kill apps has always been a bad idea, and actually shortens your phone’s battery life. However, using a task manager to kill Facebook when it keeps your phone awake is definitely useful. A new feature in 4.0 and up is the revamped task manager/recent apps. Holding the home button or pushing your phone’s multitasking button will open several windows of all of your recent apps. A simple swipe will kill any particular application, freeing up some RAM and keeping a rogue app from destroying your battery.
4. Widgets and syncing
Killing Facebook after it’s kept your phone awake for two hours is a good reactive idea, but being proactive about it will keep the battery drain from happening in the first place. The more often your applications and widgets have to sync, the more often will have to wake up and lose some battery life. Social media and weather widgets are generally the worst offenders of this. If you check Facebook every three hours, don’t have it sync every fifteen minutes. Unless you’re really worried about the weather, you probably don’t need it to sync more than a few times a day.
5. Heat
This one’s weird, but it’s important to pay attention to. Because of how most phone batteries work, a high temperature will cause them to deplete faster. A lower temperature (within reason) has the opposite effect. If you work near a desktop computer at your job, don’t lay your phone in a cabinet with a roaring PC tower. It’ll get hot and the battery drains more quickly. On the opposite side of that, if you’ve been playing with your phone and the temperature has risen a bit higher than it should be, turn it off, take the battery out, and sit it somewhere cooler with some open air. Even a simple desk fan can do a bit to keep it cooled and running longer.
It’s very important that you do not freeze your phone. Dropping the phone or battery below a certain temperature is not good for it, and condensation can also ruin the hardware. Don’t go overboard with it.
6. Keep an eye out for low signal areas.
This was covered in the previous battery article also, but it’s worth mentioning now that we’ve got 4G in the mix. Low phone reception will cause your phone to constantly push for a stronger signal, which, in turn, sucks power from your battery. If you’re in an area that just doesn’t get signal, airplane mode might be your best bet until you can get to an area with a better signal.
But now that 4G has rolled out in many, many areas, there’s another dimension on this. If you live in a strong 3G area, but right on the outskirts of 4G coverage, your phone is going to act like it’s a low signal area and try to boost your 4G reception. Many people see their phones constantly move between 3G and 4G, and this is just as bad on the battery as a low 3G signal. This is another situation when managing your 4G, especially LTE, is helpful. Turn off the 4G radios and stick with 3G or WiFi until the reception gets better.
7. [Root] Block ads on your phone.
People know ads are annoying, sure, but not many people know ads can actually hurt your battery life pretty significantly. (Not to mention the privacy issues, but that’s an article for another time) Naturally, the more things your phone has to process and the more information that must come to it takes more power. Ads are no exception. Whether that’s on a website or in an application, it does have an affect on battery life.
There are several ways to block ads. On most apps, there are donate options, or paid apps to remove ads. This doesn’t always work on your favorite websites, however, so an ad-blocking app is the next best thing. AdAway is my personal favorite. It’s quick and painless, and totally automated. It blocks ads from applications, websites, and anything else that might try to stick an ad in your face.
8. [Root] Try a new kernel.
Sometimes, your phone just doesn’t do enough out-of-the-box. If you don’t mind a little tinkering, different kernels for your device can significantly improve performance and battery life. This all depends on your phone, however; a Nexus device is likely going to have a dozen kernel options, where a less popular phone may only have two or three. After rooting and unlocking your phone, flashing a kernel is usually pretty simple. Most are packaged like regular flashable zip files, but that can vary from phone to phone, so it’s important to read the instructions. XDA is an excellent source for learning about rooting, unlocking, and flashing your phone.
9. [Root] Adjust CPU speeds.
This is similar to using a different kernel, but it goes a little farther. On ROMs like Cyanogenmod, there are built in settings that allow you to change CPU governors and clock speeds. This essentially changes how much power your CPU is allowed to use and keeps it from running at full speed. The governors control how the CPU acts in different situations; a performance governor is going to ramp up the CPU all the time. Performance will be great, but the battery is going to suffer. Another governor I prefer is hotplug; it shuts down one core of a dual-core CPU when in sleep mode, which improves the idle battery life. There’s tons of different governors and clock speed combinations, so like changing kernels, it’s a good idea to read up on what each one does. XDA also provides some tutorials on this.
An alternative is an application to control your CPU. Not all ROMs have CPU controls built in, so an application like that can manage the clock speeds and governors if your phone is rooted. All of the same rules apply. Higher clock speeds mean faster, more battery draining performance. Lower clock speeds mean worse performance, but less power consumption. The trick is finding a middle ground where you can live with the performance and can see the extra battery life.
10. [Root] Try a new ROM.
Sometimes, the stock software from Samsung or HTC just might be optimized for battery life. It’ll have some features that you find a little superfluous that causes battery drain. If all else fails, flashing a new ROM onto your phone may be your best option. AOSP-built ROMs like Cyanogenmod provide an alternative to OEM-bloated stock ROMs. This can help with the battery life in many cases because there are less system applications and features that hog resources on a custom ROM like Cyanogenmod. There are even customized OEM ROMs that are optimized to reduce battery drain and bloat. Again, XDA is likely your best friend when trying this out.
Many of these ROMs also come with their own custom kernels. Together, they really can improve battery life well past what the phone is capable of on stock software. Mixing kernels with custom ROMs is also a great way to tweak your setup to get the best possible performance and battery life.
11. The worst case scenario: using spare and extended batteries.
Sometimes, your phone is just not going to perform as well as you’d like. Some phones just do not have great battery life, as was the case with the abysmal Verizon Galaxy Nexus, and no amount of lowered screen brightness or custom ROMs or tweaking is going to extend it by more than an hour or two. If you have a phone with a removable battery, consider buying an extended battery, or a spare battery or two if you don’t want the added bulk. As a CDMA GNex owner, I own three spare batteries that I swap out during the course of an 8-hour work day. It’s not the perfect solution, but it is a viable way of using your phone throughout an entire day. Of course, this only works if your phone supports a removable battery, and lately we’ve seen the trend of sealed in batteries in newer smartphones.
This is by no means an all inclusive list of battery tips. Searching the internet is going to pull up a ton of other tips for getting the most out of your battery, especially for rooted users, and some of these tips may work better for some phones than others. Hopefully, though, this list will give you enough to get started on tweaking your settings to get some longer battery life, and will help you be a little more mindful of how you’re using your battery and what applications and syncing are doing to it.
