We don’t have any doubt in the fact that some Android phones have trouble with their battery performance. Many users have complained about the battery of their phone, which drains quickly.
At Google’s annual partner forum, Google Zeitgeist, a question was asked to the co-founder of Google, Larry Page, that whether he is looking forward to solve the battery issues in Android phones. To which Larry Page replied, that the battery is pretty good in the Android phones and he is pretty happy with it.
Larry Page, taking this topic into detail also said, “I have noticed there are a few people who have phones where there is software running in the background that just sort of exhausts the battery quickly. If you are not getting a day, there is something wrong.”
Google CEO Eric Schmidt also replied to the topic, “The primary consumer of the battery life on these phones is the transmit/receive circuit. So tuning that and obviously figuring out a way to not use too much of that extends your battery life”
So, the applications (which runs continuously in background) of Android are to be blamed for the poor battery performance, according to Larry Page. Note that all Android developers and users.
