What is the purposes of those links?? Still no proof of real world battery degradation or excess heat produced that will cause battery degradation

Ok, so you're claiming that xiaomi has such good battery technology that their 120W fast charging battery is 2.5x less prone to degradation than the iPhone.

And, I kept in mind that higher wattage doesn't equal higher degradation. Keep in mind that the iPhone charges at 23W while the xiaomi charges at 120, which is equal to 5 times the wattage.

Finally, I know that you're gonna ask me for sources, so here they are:

Incomplete half baked implementation has become a signature of ios devices.
Apple needs to learn from Android how its done

[deleted post]lol I know that getting external modem from qualcomm is easy.

Integrating it is something different.

[deleted post]Alright then.

Show me the links to my comments which do not have sources.

[deleted post]Like I said, apple may be "inferior" in this department, but it literally does not matter at all until 2024-ish, which by then, apple will be on their second gen in-house modem that they will integrate.

[deleted post]This guy claimed 25W fast charging produced five times degradation than 5W charging even though chargung technology is different.
As usual no evidence to justify his claims. All this to justify his lower Watt Charging on his favorite brand.
And then he wonders why people don't bother taking him seriously or give him prooof.

Anonymous, 03 Dec 2021Tier2 company cheapened out on internal modem That's because it is really hard to integrate a 3rd party modem into a chipset you developed yourself.

The only reason that mediatek and qualcomm can do that is because they develop their own modems to integrate.

You say so?

By the time 5G mmwave is well developed enough, apple will already have their own modems which have far better efficiency than qualcomm's.

mmwave is barely out even as we're approaching 2022.

Where's your logic there?

Ohhh 5g is future... Aren't you apple Boyz going to use it for 5 years, what happened to long support? That's right, another scam.. where hardware is outdated because cheap company couldn't develop internal modem. Other manufacturers don't have this issue. This is why ios remains a niche operating system on smartphones.

You're gonna get a 0 instantly because you didn't cite your sources.

It isn't my job to search for sources to prove your argument, that's your job to prove that it's right.

Why would I search for sources to prove the opposing side of the argument?

Thus, testing 5G as part of the battery test is useless since you're pretty much never going to use it.
