Technology for Display on Mobile phones and Battery

by Paydy12 / July 26, 2013 11:51 PM PDT

Hi Just wanted to initiate a discussion on mobile display and technologies. After going through a lot of discussions on battery saving on smart phones, i have observed that most of the battery consumption on smart phones is the display. instead of making batteries with larger capacities, is there a way that the displays of cellphones (smart phones) can help reduce the battery consumption. I know there are some apps which help reduce the consumption. But my logic in this matter is that the root problem can be addressed. If the displays used in Mobile Technology can make significant advancement (like for eg: LCD to LED lit LCD in TV's) etc.
Can somebody more capapble throw some light on this?

Battery issue....

The battery issue is also related to processor intensive applications. Technology is improving, but that is the main reason the external battery manufacturers are making a fortune selling their devices. With the advent of multi-core processors there have been advances.

What we really need is a newer, affordable battery technology that is far better than the current lineup of batteries.

....running GPS, Bluetooth, Wifi, camera/video can drain batteries faster. Not too many years ago, most phones did not have such capabilities.

...in a short, but reasonable amount of time for when the device is inactive. Turning off GPS and location services/wifi can also greatly extend batter life during the day IME w/ many handsets.

And if you are near a PC or outlet for extended times, simply plug the device in via USB (etc.) whenever you can.

You will unfortunately have to wait until the battery tech catches up Wink
