For anyone has seen the Samsung S8, you probably noticed how much thinner it is from the previous models. One thing that we immediately thought about was the battery. How small could that battery be with the device being so thin.
Well, the answer to that is VERY small. Samsung has found a way to shrink the battery while keeping the longevity of the battery life in check.
When the Samsung S8 is taken apart, the battery is squeezed right in the middle of other hardware. Actually, removing the battery to replace it isn’t much of a problem. It’s getting to the battery that is tricky (not so tricky for our experienced techs though).
This is good news. As more people purchase the Samsung S8 and it starts to run low on its battery life, people will want to have the battery replaced. Replacing it DIY isn’t going to be an easy thing to do, so that’s why you should always leave it up to the experts, like our techs.
Smaller Battery, Thinner Phone, Longer Life
Most people will say that they want a thinner phone because they can stash it in more places. With a thinner phone, the battery needs to be put somewhere. Of course, that somewhere must be within the hardware, and the only way to keep the thinness of the phone is to make the battery thin too.
This means that engineers had to find a way to keep the the mechanisms of the battery in tact while making it as small/thin as possible. This, of course, is without sacrificing the battery life. No one wants a smaller phone that has no battery life. So far, reports say that users are happy with the battery life of the phone, so it looks like Samsung has achieved the goal.
What else? There’s a fast charge options AND wireless charging option. That makes it much easier to deal with a failing battery when you’re on the move, as most Americans are these days.
