Google makes Pixel battery life estimates more accurate with personalized on-device model

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

If you own a Pixel and you've noticed that your battery life estimates have gotten more accurate in the past few days, that's not a coincidence. A Google product manager made an announcement yesterday regarding the new, smarter way that your Pixel will calculate your remaining battery life.

Pixels would previously make simple (and often incorrect) estimations on your usage. For instance, if you'd been using about 10% of your battery every hour for the past few hours, your phone would assume that you'd continue to use 10% of your battery every hour for its calculation.

On a Pixel 2 XL running the Android Oreo 8.1 dev preview, our tipster asked the Google Assistant why his phone wasn't charging fully, and to his/our surprise, a troubleshooting process was initiated.

Weekend poll: What do you consider to be ‘good’ battery life?

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

Battery life is a highly subjective thing. For some, getting 3-4 hours of screen-on time is more than adequate, others don't consider anything short of 6 to be enough. Even though I'm probably on my phone more often than most (since it's kinda my job), I'm of the opinion that 4-5 hours is a pretty decent goal for manufacturers. Anything above that, while great to see, I just consider a bonus since I'm probably not going to use it before I plug in at night.

OUKITEL’s K8000 is its most durable big-battery smartphone yet [Sponsored Post]

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Most manufacturers only seem to think we want a day or two of use from a phone before the battery dies. 3,000-4,000mAh is what we've come to expect, and we've told ourselves that a day of use is good enough. We leave the charger by the bedstand and resign ourselves to the daily cycle of charge, use, die, repeat.

But, with the new OUKITEL K8000, you can break out of that cycle.
