This was funny to read too.
simply pointed out what Xiaomi actually said on the matter, which was completely different to the nonsense you were coming out with, even though you are now saying you agree with them 'no matter what I think'.......🤷‍♂️

I do understand 97% and 100% is a difference but after half year is not that much.
Also i agree with you its imossible for abtetry to hav 100% health after or before or close to 800 charging cycles. But if phone can retain 90 or 95% is still awesome achievement.

    You were the one saying it was possible to go 800 cycles on a lithium battery with no degradation whatsoever which is demonstrably incorrect, and outright physically impossible.

          God, 30 Jan 2022Now in 2022 yes..but it was a big issues when this 120hz wa... moreAh I didn't know 120hz was so widely available in apps, I mean I have used the 120hz option in my samsung to test it, but I had to install a game to really see it for myself....but because I do really game, I then set my phone back to 60hz and uninstalled the game.
          It's a great feature to have available but for people like me, it's also great to be able to disable it.
          The more options the better.

          Thanks for replying

              I know what you tried to say but fact is battery technology and charging technology evolved since old button phones were well known for pop uip batteries like a baloon.

And still have rather comical 4400mAh battery. Only phones that even beat it are those using 5000mAh batteries and some weak entry level SD or Mediatek chipset that can't even put any real strain on the battery. The amount of capacity they included as extra is entirely disproportionate to the performance uplift and battery life increase. So, yeah, they have indeed increased battery life with display, even more efficient chipset and possibly further OS optimizations. Because battery is only 800mAh larger. That's basically nothing in terms of capacity.

Not what you falsely interpreted. Apple figured out how to do 120hz with smaller batteries in comparison to their android counterparts. You still have not disputed that. Instead, you put words into my posts and argue a point I never made.

                  Furthermore you wrote the S21 has a better battery. That is not true. The iphone has beaten Samsung in every battery test I've seen on youtube. Maybe you found one test. Maybe you did your own test but the majority of tests show iphone leads in this space and that doesn't even include downtime. Battery tests don't include standby time because no one wants to look at blank screens, but it is important because android phones drain drastically on standby. Iphone's do not.

                  Again, dispute what I wrote.

This is what you said: "Apple managed to do 120hz and increase the battery life on their phones. Android phones can only do that by throwing a bigger battery at the problem." You imply that Apple phones don't use higher battery capacity to increase battery life, which is incorrect. Apple doesn't prove anything. They increased the battery capacity so the battery life was improved. This doesn't need proving. It's a simple fact. When you're wrong, admit it and move on.

At what point did I write Apple kept the same battery size? I'm prepared to argue what I've written. Not a false narrative you've created. Apple proved they can implement 120hz and have a longer battery life than their android counterparts. Prove that wrong.

                        ios 15.4 fixed almost all of the iphone 13 pro max flaws. FaceID with mask just made all the other methods of biometrics obsolete. We now have the ability to unlock the phone without any issues and have the best security. Other problem was the absence of 120Hz refresh rate on third party apps. Both the issues have been solved making it the undisputed king in the smartphone world.

I'd just set it to 80% and not think about it (currently on iOS and on non rooted Androids I could only use alarm which you have to hear and disconnect yourself). I'd still use slow charging when not in a hurry and only activate it when really in a rush. Which is very rarely and I can top my iPhone up even with standard 5V chargers enough to get through day easily.

Degradation however is inevitable, is simply the physics of how these batteries work.

                                  I've always been personally skeptical around the ever increasing fast charge mentality, that is not to say I don't respect the fact that mitigating solutions have been engineered into them sure. But I have seen enough skepticism from around the tech community that if I were purchasing one of these 100+ watt fast charging devices, the first thing I would be looking to do is disable that feature.

                                  On Apple's own solution, I have never been happy with that battery health feature, it's accuracy has been questioned, and I think it ultimately caused more problems than it solved. I get why they did it, but personally I would have just preferred a notification saying the battery could no longer sustain peak performance, and a replacement should be sought, rather than the percentage based read out.

It has degraded to 95% in 3 years. I honestly can't tell if it lasts any less than it has when new.

                                    Pretty much no one babysits batteries like this. People charge new phones with quick charging over night most of the time like they have for last 20 years. It's literally the worst, it charges battery to 100% in half an hour and then sits at 100% for 8 hours every night.

                                      CptPower, 30 Jan 2022Man it will start degrade after 800 cycles not before. Be... more800 cycles before any degradation...🤣🤦‍♂️

                                      If you actually believe that, then I have a bridge I would love to sell you.

                                      Back in the real world Xiaomi were quite clear on the matter....well, to all but you at least, what they actually said was 'you can expect 80% battery capacity after 800 charging cycles at this speed (equivalent to roughly two years).'

                                      A bold claim in itself, and fantastic news for Xiaomi customers if indeed true. In the meantime maybe try laying off the Kool-aid a little yeah, 0% degradation on a lithium battery after the equivalent of 2 years usage simply isn't possible.
