Samsung promises all-day battery life in 2012

Samsung promises all-day battery life in 2012While mobile manufacturers seem to be obsessed with making their phones super-slim, we’d much rather have a bigger battery and – subsequently – a tad a more chunkiness.

Samsung is apparently aware of our concerns, and promises all-day battery life from its 2012 smartphones. Well, depending how much you use them. How does one define “average to moderately heavy use”? Hmm.

"When you wake up to when you go to bed, we don't want you feeling anxiety about your battery life," said Samsung’s VP of Product Innovation, Kevin Packingham, at CES.

Kev reveals that Samsung will address battery concerns on two fronts. Firstly, they’ll introduce fatter batteries; that’s the obvious one. But Samsung will also optimise various aspects of its phones, such as the way they look for Wi-Fi networks, and – for those in the States at least – handle 4G LTE connectivity.

The Motorola RAZR was, at one time, the world’s thinnest smartphone, but Moto recently released the Droid Razr Maxx in the US – a thicker Razr with a bigger battery. Hats off to you, chaps.

And let that be a lesson the rest of you OEM types. We want juice.

YES well done Samsung, that's a good start but hopefully they have further reaching goals than that. Of like to go back to the days when a battery lasted days rather than hours, and I hope the other manufactures follow as well and move away from this charge to have the thinnest phone

Need to design a phone that would accept different types of batteries. Say something from 1800mA - 3000mA with a cover for each. Customers would be able to select which one is best for them.

Yeah I think a somewhat expandable battery would totally make sense.

Motorola did it with the Droid Razr Maxx and apart from the massive bezel around the screen, the thickness and size is pretty standard for a smartphone. So i think samsung can do it. It'll probably be an upgraded version of the S3, maybe something like the Note 2 or something.
