Well there seems to be some good news on this front. According to the latest info, the Galaxy S5 will come equipped with a massive 2,900 mAh battery. If you’re keeping score, that’s 300mAh more than the Galaxy S4. There’s even more good news, as this battery seems to be a refined version of the Li-on tech that’s in smartphones today, promising to offer up to 20% more battery capacity with the size of the battery remaining unchanged.
Uhmm.. Isn't the mAh rating an absolute measure of the battery's capacity? I mean, don't all 2600mAh batteries last the same regardless of the technology?
If you divide the mAh rating by a known current you'll get how much time the charge will be sufficient for. Doesn't that take into account all parameters (like Li-On technology and such)?
And since the phone will be bigger the battery will be bigger too. So I call bollocks on this "new Li-On tech".
Not to mention that that's a 12% increase in battery capacity so I don't think it's enough .Edited by Daredevil 720 - 1/14/14 at 5:05pm
