Student's Antenna Tweak Leads to Vastly Improved Battery Life
I hope this works
12x times more battery life would be a big improvement for any 3g phone on the market. Especally with 4g right around the corner on Sprint's WiMax network.
Why, does WiMax draw 12x the battery power that LTE does?
Im just guessing though.
It is obvious that 4G makes more efficient use of transfering information because of the speed involved. It is possible that the battery life in these devices will increase.
I would expect any 4G device to come beefed up in the battery department anyways counting on increased usage for internet. Just like when MP3 players started being put in phones. That might be where they were going with that also.
Just so there is more time to use a device before recharge, because people will undoubtedly use them more.
hawkeye why would u bring up Lte without any facts other then to mislead people???
Pot calling the kettle black.
LTE will actually be better in consumption over WiMax. But only marginal.
So any development of saving power is a plus for any of us and this student has stepped up an advancememt which will be welcomed.
Thats why I said I hope this works. We wont know if it works until its actually tested till then I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Well somebody got it to work, thats why they are telling us about it
The antenna itself is not what uses up that much power, it is physically the uplink transmitter in the device.
