Smartphone batteries have been a tough enigma to crack, even before the post-iPhone era. It's not exactly surprising that a thin electronic device -- filled with radios for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cellular data, plus sensors for more movements than you knew you could do -- wouldn't be able to outrun a wall charger for longer than a day or two. But for those who want to know more of the why, Mobility Digest has written a series of posts talking about Windows Phone's battery.
The collection, titled "Nine Simple Truths About Your Windows Phone Battery", takes aim at several myths as well as popular theories surrounding your phone's longevity. One of the most interesting experiments of theirs is the Wi-Fi test, which actually improved the typical battery life the phone delivered while their data was one. Other interesting discoveries include the effect of receiving email 'as items arrive', a high number of background tasks, and more.
Not every one of these 'truths' will be directly applicable unless you have a similar set of conditions for the usage scenario, but some of them could offer some valuable battery-saving tips you may not have known before. Visit the source link below to get reading.
