Smartphones’ usage has hiked astoundingly in the matter of 2-3 years only. Some figures released by International Telecommunication Union suggest that global mobile phone subscribers have touched the 5,981 million mark in November last year, with only Asia and Pacific region having 2,897 million subscribers.
As these numbers are rising so are the concerns about their energy consumption. Smartphones have large set of applications that consume loads of energy. Neither the app developers have come up with a plan to develop less energy consuming apps, nor the technology in battery production have kept the pace with changing trends of today.
Soon after using highly graphical apps such as video games and photo editing application you end up having low-battery message on your smartphone screens that makes you recharge it again and again. The factor further raises concerns regarding consuming electricity more frequently, in places where the heavy means of electricity production aren’t available, in order to recharge your mobile phones.
A solution to this problem was suggested by Aalto University, Finland, by designing a proxy network that could aid in saving up to 74% battery life, a viable solution for developing nations especially.
Who is going to be the leader in this direction I wish I live to see that.
