I bet most tech savvies has foreseen the triumph of the smartphone over ten years ago – envisioning of combining a good camera with an internet-enabled device that could also play videos, music and have features such as GPS.  And the same people have imagined and realized how smartphones become part of daily life.

 

Well, we all notice the dramatic increase in popularity of the smartphone, mostly with Samsung and Apple’s recent success and bulging bank balance has been down to iPhone sales. On the other hand, these almost versatile mobile devices simply aren’t being used the way they were intended – casually and for one or two hours a day.

 

Businessmen and marketers on the go have done away with PCs, laptops and tablets in favor of large smartphones for the simple reason – they can do nearly everything they need them to with such simple but very useful electronics.

Take for example, Facebook, Netflix, email, Google Maps, Skype – the average smartphone user doesn’t need much more, but of course that’s exactly depend on what’s on offer via app stores too.

 

Smartphones not having enough capacity…

 

The shortcoming with smartphones being so essential to daily life is that we’re using them for many hours every day and for very demanding tasks too. Sadly, while the upgrade in camera, operating system, RAM becomes quite endless, the battery technology hasn’t kept up with it.

Remember the old days where dumb phones and early smartphones could last several days or even weeks on a single charge? Well, we hope that producers would meet that demand without sacrificing a single feature on the phone. However, this isn’t the case under heavy use for most of today’s smartphones. Let’s just hope that Lenovo’s bigger battery can take the lead for other producers to manufacture long-lasting batteries.
