Nokia 1 – 50% battery lasted 4 days

The Nokia brand has a long-standing reputation of being durable and offering great battery life.

This was especially true for feature phones like the original Nokia 3310, which was popular due to its rugged design and reliability.

So predictable. Called it 4 days ago in the other Nokia thread. :crylaugh:

Lol.

Actually, the moment the first Nokia1 thread was made, another 3, or 4, "articles" are also created for the dripfeed queue. Cue for the "good battery life" one.

Same with other headlines. An article like "Telkom CEO announces coming price cuts" will be reposted in its entirety by focusing every time on a different quote as the headline. That is now after the d-grade "The price cuts announced by Telkom" or "These are the..." crap.

Pointless test

All smartphones have great standby because they all have much larger batteries compared to the non smartphones of the past. I had a similar set up on a Samsung j5: connected to cell and Wi-Fi networks, syncing Facebook and WhatsApp. Used 33% in 4 days, so standby of 12 days sitting on a shelf.

Use any smartphone as a smartphone and the screen will kill the battery in a day.

The pining standby times of pre smartphones is stupid

Woah there, lots of people buy phones to keep them in standby.

Again Mybb punting this phone, talk about biased reporting
Biased because they seem to like the phone? :confused:

They bought the phone, one of the first devices afaik in SA with Android Go IIRC, and now they're putting it through its paces... what would you suggest? That they not do this sort of testing? :rolleyes:

Kevin made a comment on the Multichoice CEO thread which was very telling.
They do the work of an interview, for example, once, and then write several articles based on that, instead of one quality article.
Their objective is to get clicks and people to talk, not good journalism.

This causes them to come across as fielding some sort of agenda. The truth is actually that they simply don't have any other content.

They have a click baitey headline like 50% batter in 4 days, then you realise that the phone was sitting on a desk with the screen off. Then have a one liner with real world usage, which indicates terrible performance.

Mate there are tons of phones on the market and not even half of them receive as much coverage as this phone has.

Yeah sure i get it that its got Android Go which sets its apart, but an article with a heading "Nokia 1 – 50% battery lasted 4 days" and then its all about leaving the phone unattended is taking it a bit far.

How else do you test standby time? :confused:

Then say standby time in the headline. Not imply that the phone lasted 4 days during normal use, which the first responder in this thread seems to think. Or better yet do a comprehensive test.

They can't give the whole game away in the headline as you'd then have no reason to read the article.

I think they need to provide more detail in the headline. Some people apparently believe a R999 smartphone could have an eight day battery under normal use.

I blame the state of the education system.

I stand by my comment. People are comparing how long their non smartphone battery lasted compared to their smartphone. Screen is what drains the battery.

Use any smartphone like a non smartphone and it will have a long standby time.

The implication of the article was that this phone had unusually long standby.

All unnecessary background apps on the device were disabled and Android’s battery saver tool was turned off.

This setup simulated a standard standby battery power draw, with the device’s screen only used when the battery levels were checked at certain intervals.
Not. Only two separate tests with battery saver tool on and off would confirm it.
The test showed that the average battery drain per hour increased over the course of the experiment.

This may be attributed to increased messaging traffic throughout this period or core background services using more processing power.
Battery meter can be non-linear or not-calibrated properly, it could be many other things like system services hanging up, blocking more resources and using more CPU cycles in background. It is a new OS version, I would expect the last one to be a main contributor.
