    New batteries in Galaxy S8 would degrade less quickly compared to the S7’s

    Even though Samsung has increased the screen sizes of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ compared to that of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, battery capacities haven't been increased accordingly. Is Samsung too confident in the power efficiency of its new processor and display used in the Galaxy S8? Well, Samsung has an interesting explanation to the questionably small battery capacities inside the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

    According to a new report from Android Police, Samsung claims that the new-generation batteries that are used in the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ would lose substantially less effective capacities over the same amount of time compared to the batteries used in the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. The company said that a typical year's worth of usage leaves the Galaxy S7 with just 80% of its original battery capacity. In comparison, the Galaxy S8 would preserve about 95% of its original battery capacity.

    Samsung didn't explain as to how it managed to accomplish this impressive feat, but it could be a combination of new advancements in battery technology and new power management systems that are developed by either Samsung or its partner companies. If you hated how the battery life on a Samsung smartphone degraded over time, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ should do better in that regard, at least as per the company's claims.
