Do you know why the Samsung Galaxy S5 battery lasts so long?

We always say that battery optimization is silly, that those applications do not work, and in reality they are, but that does not mean that there are no technologies that allow improving the use of the battery that is done, and optimizing the resources consumed by a smartphone. Lucid Logic technologies are one example of this. A few months ago Samsung signed with this company the use of battery saving algorithms called PowerXtend to use them in a device that was still unknown. Well, that device is none other than the same Samsung Galaxy S5.

PowerXtend is composed, in turn, by three other algorithms, which are owned by Lucid Logic. These are GameXtend, WebXtend and NavXtend. These three algorithms are each oriented to a specific facet of the smartphone, which as their names indicate are video games, Internet web browsing, and the use of GPS navigation, three facets that usually consume a lot of battery quantity. GameXtend, in theory, is capable of offering us up to 50% more autonomy, while the other two, WebXtend and NavXtend, improve autonomy by 25%, which is still a really positive data.

These systems, although they are software, must be integrated into the system by the manufacturer, it is not something that users can do on their own, and that is the reason why Samsung reached an agreement to start working with them. months ago on the new smartphone. This is the reason why the autonomy of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is capable of being twice that of the average times of an Android smartphone, reaching 12 hours of video and 10 hours of browsing. And all with a 2,800 mAh battery, when its rivals already exceed 3,000 mAh.
