Is for that and the other one for signal.
Not enough surface area for any interesting amount of power generation.
also since the phone is mostly in people's pockets it would kind of defeat the purpose. It is not a watch....
If you left the phone out in the sun it would get too hot
You underestimate the amount of power produced by solar cells and the amount of power required to run a phone.
I keep the iPhone in my pocket - there's no way a solar cell is going to work in my pocket.
Solar power in a phone? No way.
Feasible for lightly charging or maybe at least "stalling" typical battery usage? Maybe ... I would hope for Witricity wifi charging first!
Also, as others said, it's not good to encourage users to put their phone in the sun as the heat is bad for the phone. Plus, I spend most of my time either out at night, in the office during the day, or in my car. It doesn't leave much opportunity for solar power.
I agree with the previous posters who say no way would solar cells be feasible.
while it is 100% possible I am 100% positive that's now what the back plate is for.
It wouldn't do much good as the phone is usually either going to be in your pocket or most of the back will be covered by your hand both of which will keep it from charging. Also the phone is too small to produce that much electricity even if it was sitting in the sun.
Another stupid thread.
