Low-battery warning humor

Low-battery warning humor
Have you ever ignored the low-battery warning on your smartphone, only to be suddenly shocked when the screen turned off? You probably wondered why you weren't warned of the impending doom, when in reality you were alerted a number of times. Would it help if the low-battery warning was humorous?

The crew at College Humor did what they do best and put together a sequence of a low battery indicator with a mind of its own. In this day and age of larger sized batteries, like the 3300mAh cell on the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD, or the 4050mAh cell on the Huawei Ascend Mate (which is powering a 6.1 inch screen, mind you), perhaps these warnings aren't as prevalent as they used to be. But if you are a power user, you still might be used to receiving these messages.

If you need a chuckle after a long day, take a look at the battery warnings below.

to that i say HA! i traded my MAXX HD for my Dad's SIII so i can trade it for a DNA or a Note II and this thing is just getting me 8 hours on a charge versus the 29 hours my MAXX HD gets me on a single charge. even the Razr M i used before i gave it to my mom had way better battery life than this thing and it wasn't just this particular phone, my sister has an SIII too and her battery percentage gets down just as quick as the SIII i'm using. Low Battery Warning on Phone: if only i was a Motorola right now you wouldn't be seeing this.

Trust me, I know....my SGS3 ran dry fast as well. But I usually get about 21-27 hours of HEAVY use with my Note 2.

yeah, i can't speak for the Note II but it relieves me that you said that because i intend to get a Note II for my dad and get my MAXX HD back. if i get a DNA however i'll put it through it's paces for a week or so and then probably give it to my sister and sell her SIII to put towards a Note II.

Yea when I had the SGS3, I was using it with somewhat heavy use(less than what I even use on my Note 2) and I was barely lasting 7 hours before it would die. I easily with even greater heavy use last my full 8-9 hour work shift and then I'm still using it several hours after work. This is one of the nights I was on my phone CONSTANTLY all day, night, and morning and still got 20 hours in. For someone who just browses the web, texts, and uses the phone a few times(im constantly using the web, youtube, and taking photos) can easily get way more use out of the Note 2 than I do. https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/63781_10152342791350580_1199269172_n.jpg

i don't understand why the SIII gets sooo much less battery life than the MAXX HD and the Note II, i mean yeah they have bigger batteries but they're just around 50% bigger and both of them get over twice the battery life. the MAXX HD even has the same SoC. i personally use Battery Widget Reborn to predict my battery life. it's very accurate.

Thing is, you wouldn't see messages. You would just get siri yelling those same things from your pocket.

What note 2 are you using, i got the vzw verison and with my "heavy" use i barely get 8 hrs. Stream Redbox movie on 4g, talk on the phone for about 3 hrs, play ruzzle for 20mins, text most of the day. read news on my apps. by the time im ready to go home i have about 20% if i dont plug it in. so its off the charger by 8am and im out of work by 6:30pm. 21hrs hrs is Bull.. on Heavy use maybe not using it at all. but definately not getting that performance on heavy use.
