[Discussion] [#6What If?] What If, Your Smartphone Had A Bigger Battery ?

Hello Mi Fans,
Welcome to yet another session of our 'What If?' series. This series primarily talks about the latest technological innovations in smartphones, which makes you think of if it was there in your device. In this series, we will discuss bigger batteries and the consequences of having one on your smartphone. So let's get started...

Batteries are small containers of chemical energy. When a smartphone is plugged into the mains, electricity resets a chemical reaction within the battery, transferring electrons from the negative anode to the cathode – the positive end of the battery.

Once charged, the battery can then create electricity by driving electrons through a circuit, in this case, a smartphone, to the anode and will continue to do so until all of the electrons contained within the battery have transferred to the anode or a built-in switch disconnects the battery.

Bigger Battery?

Anyone using a smartphone will be very much concerned about the battery of their device, as it is the powerhouse that makes the device work. The battery capacity of the smartphone is always a big priority when one chooses his/her smartphone. Ideally, the battery should of high capacity and good backup. However, with a bigger battery comes the issue of heftiness. It is a known fact that as the capacity of the battery increases, its weight increases which in turn increases the weight of the smartphone itself, which is not ideal.

So it is obvious that if you are going for a smartphone with a bigger battery, you have to compromise on its weight. The weight of a smartphone is a big factor that impacts our comfort and ease of day to day activities. We remember a time when smartphones were having a capacity of less than 1000mAh. But the time has changed now, switching everything starting from music, social media, banking and so much more to a smartphone. As the usage of a smartphone increased, so does the requirement for a high power consuming display, better performance and so, which impacted the battery life. The dependency on battery life has thus increased and so having a bigger battery is always the way to move forward. We are now in at a time where we need to have a pure balance between battery capacity and weight of the smartphone. Many smartphone brands have introduced battery ranging from 4000mAh - 5000mAh and 6000mAh in some cases. But most of them, compromise on the build quality of the device by manufacturing the smartphone with a plastic body and plastic frame which makes the smartphone too fragile.

What if Your Smartphone has a bigger battery?

It will be the happiest thing to happen to a smartphone user like gamers who uses the device very much. But are you ready to compromise on the weight of the device or the durability of the device? If your device is having huge battery say greater than 6000mAh and still have corning gorilla glass protection on front and back with aluminum or steel framed body and still weights very sensible, what will be your thoughts? Xiaomi has always been a front-runner in innovations and has already maintained a great balance between durability, weight and battery capacity. One of the solution to the issue with a bigger battery is the amount of time it takes to charge up, but the introduction of quick chargers which charges the smartphone much faster has forced us to re-think of bigger batteries.

A bigger battery with equitable weight distribution around the phone is always a plus point.
Yet because of the growing size of the camera module the entire design of the phone tends to suffer due to its bump and wobbling when kept on any flat surfaces.
Although Xiaomi phones ensure protection, a phone with a flush camera module and a beefer battery is still to look out for in the mid price segment of Rs.15k.
