The latest smartphone battery capacity reports indicate that the number of hours that people are able to charge their smartphones has increased dramatically in the past year.
While the latest smartphone models are typically able to go for up to five hours of continuous charging on a single charge, new research shows that in 2017 the number is only capable of getting up to six hours.
According to research by Gartner, smartphone battery life on a smartphone has been steadily increasing in the last two years.
The most recent year for which Gartners data is available was 2016.
The research group noted that in 2016 smartphone batteries experienced a 20 percent increase in the average charge time.
While that was the highest growth rate in the 20 years that Garters has been tracking the growth in battery life.
The average charge rate on a phone in 2016 was 8.4 hours.
In 2017 that number dropped to 6.5 hours.
That is an increase of roughly three hours.
The data from Gartern is based on smartphone battery reports from Android, iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire and Samsung devices.
The data is based off of the number in use on a day.
For example, in 2017 Samsung phones only saw a 6.7 percent increase.
According the Garttern data, battery life is only one of the factors that can affect smartphone performance.
Other factors such as battery charge rates, battery power and charging times also affect the battery life of a device.
The smartphone industry is now in its fourth year of growth and with a total of approximately 4.3 billion smartphones in use worldwide, the growth has been phenomenal.
However, it is clear that smartphone battery usage has been trending downwards for some time now.
According research by the Wall Street Journal, the number one concern for smartphone owners in 2017 is the battery drain.
The study points out that smartphone users are using their devices less and less to the extent that they are not using them at all.
According Gartenner, the smartphone industry needs to take action and find a way to better serve users in the future.
