Galaxy S5's stellar battery life might be due to Lucid Logic's battery saving tech

0. phoneArena 28 Feb 2014, 07:20 posted on

Remember Lucid Logic's battery-saving optimizations that we wrote about not long ago? At the time we mentioned that Samsung has inked a deal for implementing the PowerXtend battery saving algorithms in a yet-unknown device. Well, that mystery handset turns out to be none other than the Galaxy S5 flagship...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

PHONEARENA! How do you know the battery life on S5 is as good as you state in the headline? Where are all the tests? It's one thing standing on a stage saying that, another to actually prove it.

I know, I just react to statements that are just thrown out BEFORE actual facts are shown.

"So we can't wait to put the Galaxy S5 through our battery test, and see if these claims hold water."

Its a new technology adopted in S5 and acknowledged by Phonearena. They are only covering what is this new technology is and how it improves battery life, as claimed in S5... No need to get paranoid..

Wait for the reviews.
Plenty of time to decide..If S5 gets the upper hand in the battery endurance, if it gets a lower price tag, no one should blame you for picking it over the Z2

+1. Add to that the UltraPower Saving Mode which offers 24 hours on standby at 10% will blow the competition out of the water (even the waterproofs one) :P

Its not rocket science to estimate the battery life is it ?!

Let me break it down to you:
GS4 had 69 hours of battery life.http://blog.gsmarena.com/samsung-i9505-galaxy​-s4-battery-tests-update-battery-life-improved/

Now add to that
1. 200mah more

2. Ultra Power Saving Mode

3. and this new tech

Voila !

I think most of the judging has been done on the facts as we know them (little has been said about the battery).

Z2>RAM
Z2>Camera
Z2>Looks
Z2>Waterproofing

and by the way I am a HTC One fanbois. But yeah the Samsung will probably have a great battery, well done - its something to show off about!

Z2>Ram. But is it needed?

Z2>camera. Not really. Higher resolution doesn't mean better camera. Note 3 with 13mp was better than 20mp on z1. Even some initial comparisons by PA showed gs5 had better images.

Z2>looks. That's subjective.

Z2> waterproof. Its only slightly better if you look at the IP codes. Ip5x protects against mild water jets and IP6x protects against big. That would hardly affect anyone in real life scenario. Also you forgot to mention gs5 has better dust protection.

Regardless of the battery, I wouldn't want a phone that displays everything like a cartoon. I can't stand the displays on the Samsung phones... Their phone displays have this cartoonish look to them.

Unlike, iPhone, Android screens are completely customizable. Every Galaxy user i know has a completely different looking pages on his/her phone.
I hated the way my Galaxy s3 pages looked straight out of the box either, so i changed it completely before day 1 with the phone is over :-)

battery life/replaceable battery is one of the 3 top features why i take Samsung. I never leave the house without a spare battery either in my wallet, or my backpack !
On the end of rhe day iPhone and HTC users end up tied up to a wall outlet with a charger cable, while i walk away with 100% full phone in my pocket :-)

beat that HTC/iPhone, and I might consider you!

Thanks, but that type battery extension does not fit my pocket. Maybe iPhone. I like larger screen phones, so putting one of those battery cases would turn my Galaxy into a monster! Besides, it completely changes the shape and feel of the design.
Replaceable battery is like $14 also. way easier to carry as backup.
