whats heavy usage? there isn't a phone out there thats gonna allow you to play heavy games for 5 hours without killing the battery.
but with the a12, apple easily could've put a huge battery in it (all other manufacturers have been able to) and just absolutely wipe the floor with all the other phones in terms of battery time. they just choose not to b/c they just want to do enough to keep up with the competition and maximize their profit margin.
Not really gaming but using the phone constantly.
I know mobile gaming kills a phone's battery life quickly.
again what do you consider heavy usage?
i feel all the flagship phones from everybody can last all day. no way any of them would last 2 days with heavy usage though.
About 5 years when true wireless charging over the air hits the streets and passes FCC approvals.
You may not have a choice. Every wifi hot spot will be putting out a wireless charging band. Whether you use it to charge your phone or not, you will be walking through it. I'm guessing you don't want 5G either.Have my doubts we will see this anytime soon.
I know you will claim otherwise but do not care to be around a device that can charge from distances.
Just a personal preference thing.
Probably will not happen for a bit. There are only two ways to achieve this:
1. Bigger or more efficient battery in the same size. Apple, we know will not make the phone bigger. This means that components will have to become smaller to increase battery size or their will have to be a breakthrough in battery design. The first is what they've been doing anyway and is unlikely to yield massive improvements.
2. Components have to use less power, mainly the screen and the CPU. Oled to Micro Oled will help and is on the horizon and they just shrunk the die to 7nm.
