If you own an Android phone, on full usage how long does your battery last? 5 hours, 8 hours? Well, according to Larry Page, who spoke at the Google Zeitgeist forum yesterday, if you’re not getting a full day’s use out of it then there is something wrong.
He also blamed the battery draining issues on third party developers and claimed that the apps were the reason why people weren’t getting their full 24 hours battery life.
As well as this he went on to say “I have noticed there are a few people who have phones where there is software running in the background that just sort of exhausts the battery quickly. If you are not getting a day, there is something wrong,” he said.
Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt also contributed by saying, “The primary consumer of the battery life on these phones is the transmit/receive circuit. So tuning that and obviously figuring out a way to not use too much of that extends your battery life. And people bring in applications that are not particularly smart about that, which is what Larry is trying to get at.”
