Sony Engineers Faster Wireless Charging Tech
Think Twice Before Rapid Charging.
So while many companies try to shorten charging times to appease consumer interests, rapid charging a current design battery is practically the worst thing for it. Rapid charging creates heat and heat is a battery killer. And with most insurance coverage plans omitting batteries as being "expendable" components, who will pay for the replacement? Deductables have reached $150 for hands...
It should be an easy 2 second process to replace a battery in a phone. With all the advances in technology, one would think a removable battery would always be available. I was just thinking how people would feel if a car company made a car with a battery that was not removable / replacable without an engine replacement.
With that kind of comparison, I think it will help some people understand it a little more. True a car is not a phone, and the cost difference is large, but why would that make any sort of difference at all?
This literally is a D-bag move by the manufacturers and the wireless industry. It needs...
People do not understand that batteries can affect more than just not holding a charge. Flickering screens, constant power downs and reboots, memory loss, Lagging screens during high use,sound degradation, overheating can all be attributed to failing batteries. If you bring a sealed battery device to the store, 9 times out of 10, the customer is told that it has a problem that cant be fixed and needs to be replaced. The customer is charged a high deductable and given a replacement not knowing that the battery could have been the issue. So, the customer pays at least 150 dollars but could have replaced the battery themselves for 30 if it was accessible.
This literally is a D-bag move by the manufacturers a
Imagine the out cry if someone purchases a high end receiver such as onkyo or marantz and the remotes come with sealed batteries never to be replaced or what about expensive TVs-Does the customer have to pay 200 dollars for a new remote or go to dollar general and purchase a pack of triple A batteries?
Eric is a Musician as myself. Imagine having a high end Sennheiser wireless guitar system and the battery is sealed-Does the musician(who is already working for peanuts) carry spare batteries, or does he have to purchase a new transmitter for an already expensive rig?
Cars are a great example of how the days of backyard mechanics are done. Now t...
^ THE ONLY argument in favor on non-removable batteries. Is that really worth it?
It's all mind manipulation and propaganda.
This is just my experience.
Multitasking? Just like Android the iPhone can switch between apps too.
Now widgets I totally like and that is what I tell everyone the major difference is between the two platforms, but you have to face it, the majority of people don't even know what a widget is.
Calculators can switch between apps. That isn't multitasking. And iOS only allows true multitasking in a very limited capacity. It's not really multitasking in the sense that anyone who understands modern technology can appreciate. That's why Apple is constantly criticized in this regard.
People's ignorance of available features has no bearing on whether or not a device is capable of something. Most people don't know what half the crap on a Swiss Army knife is for, but that doesn't change the fact that it is much more capable than a standard pocket knife.
And I would argue that most people who buy smart phones know what widgets are. But if you think that's the big ...

Best comeback so far.
Go right now to a mall and ask the first 10 people you eye if they use widgets. I bet 100 bucks that 9 of 10 of them have no idea what a widget is.
You have yet to explain the difference in multitasking between ios and android.

Read that article.
That people may not know the term by which they're known, but I guarantee that 8 out of 10 will turn out to be widget users.
Of course, unless they're iPhone users, then 0 out of 10 will know what that is, because APPLE DOESN'T SUPPORT WIDGETS.
I don't ever use NFC because, as I've already mentioned, I have a Galaxy S II. My phone doesn't have NFC. But it's one of the many features I am looking forward to when I pick up my Note 3. And many users other than myself are already enjoying its awesomeness.
>>Go right now to a mall and ask the first 10 people you eye if they use widgets. I bet 100 bucks that 9 of 10 of them have no idea what a widget is.
Right, and how about I first find out how many of them own a smartphone. And then how about I ask them if they bought their device because they wanted a smartphone or because the salesman recommended it. I bet your same hundred bucks that not more than three of them bought the smart phone they were l...
What can an android phone do that an iPhone can't do?
I don't recall you asking if I used them or not. And, well, the iPhone still can't do those things, whether their useful or not.
People know what a widget is, they may not know its name, but they know.
Switching between apps isn't multitasking. At least not how it is labeled by Apple.
NFC, well, as you could possibly have read so many articles about it and so much new technology related to it, it's a revolutionary tech. Though you may not like it, you can't speak for all of us. Please, just speak for yourself!
Finally, based on your "passionate" response I have to ask: why u mad bro?
I hope you have no problems. But, if the battery does start to wreak havoc on your device, expect to pay at least 150 dollars for replacement. Why pay this when your contract is up in 4-5 months? Under contract, you're still paying on a 700-850 phone.
What about tablets? Most are not held to the same contractual agreements or insurance. What happens when you pay 500 dollars for the tablet and the battery is toast after a year or the charging port has failed? You can purchase a new tablet, OR just remove the battery and desk top charge it or rep...
Really because I sell cellphone 5 out of 7 days a week. And I lot of people come to me with their problems and there has been no one that has had that problem. I've sold cellphone for 12 years. Next please.
What problems do they come into with? I can't dismiss the time behind the wheel you may have selling phones. However, as I stated in another post, failing batteries can be the cause of many symptoms. Overheating, Flickering or blacking out screens. Sound degradation, loss of memory, powering down and rebooting. The lagging of screens during high usage, can be caused by battery degradation."Shorted" batteries can inhibit actual powering up of a device even when connected to a charger.
