And point here is not how much it cost, but you guys claim Sony is puting cheap hardware inside and Chinese oems are the one which put premium hardware.

            And Sony and LG have been uninteresting for like 5 years now, same goes for HTC.
            That's just my opinion, and I'm not surprised LG gave up on their mobile division and HTC is barely announcing phones now, I haven't even seen a flagship announced this year.

              Still waiting for a phone with more battery than Oukitel WP15.
              But no success anywhere right now.

                Assume am lying, what about lot of people online who technically said same thing? Google xz1c reddit battery, to get accuracy opinion click google search tools filter result to this year, then you will see lot of people praise it 2021 with solid battery life.

People on the Internet can't be believed but independent lab testing can indeed be believed. We will accept your claims based on independent lab testing, not accubatery or such inaccurate apps or solely based on your words "trust be Bro I get same battery"

                    Android.Authority, 18 Nov 2021All your claims are false..... 1) Sony is no longer a bi... moreSony can still put unique hardware which no phone can do, good example is pro-I lot of things inside which make it unique, and for years we know Sony battery optimization is best. Xz1c which i own was one of the first flagship to hit 3 digit battery endurance in Gsmarena test and untill today they put amazing numbers check Xperia 5 II, Xperia 5 III and xperia 10 III, xperia 5 III even though it has sd 888 it manage to put respectable numbers in battery life.

                    And as i said above accubattery may be wrong (even though i didnt use accubattery but built in tool provided by manufacture) what about my usage? Its 2021 soon it will be 2022, and my phone still give me 9+ SOT, and not just me go to any forum of xz1c same praise you will see, phone run cool/amazing battery life.

                            We all know which 70 dollar phone you are stuck on. Calling others 15yr, clearly you are the 15yr projecting your fantasies of ever owning a flagship smartphone. Enjoy your iPhone replica

It's always people stuck on sub 25W charging (slow charging brigade) complaining about phones with premium higher quality ultra fast charging and the non existent degradation myths associated with it.

                                It's always the 60hz brigade complaining about HRR displays and the associated small battery drain that comes with it...

                                The moment they get these same features from their favorite brand, all these irrational concerns vanish into thin air.

                                  In fact Oppo or Vivo in this website (aside the UI) gets highly praised. I think you must be dissapointed that Xiaomi being mocked has left a sour taste in our mouths.

                                    Had a Samsung S10 and installed that app. Reported wrong voltage multiple times and this is dependent how you charge the phone. The battery life was actually worse, having tortured the phone.

                                    But Apple’s battery health reporting is no less accurate, it’s quite pointless as well. Best way is to sense the battery health yourself with feeling.

                                      Android.Authority, 18 Nov 2021All your claims are false..... 1) Sony is no longer a bi... moreAccubattery is based on science. It optimises battery health and performance via science.

                                        1) Sony is no longer a big company in smartphone world.

                                        2) Sony batterycare gimmick has already been exposed as it doesn't work.... Basically it makes your phone charge slowly yet reaches temperatures above 50°C and stays at those temperatures for close to 2hrs (the overall charging time) which is terrible for battery.
                                        The rated 30W on Sony is as slow as iPhone's 20W.

                                        3) Apps like accubattery are a joke.
                                        My wife's mi 10 ultra with 120W never went beyond 40°C and it gets topped up under 20 minutes. It showed 100% battery health after a year of use which is clearly not possible if you apply basic logic.
