OnePlus 3 reported to have worse battery life after update

It seems that OnePlus' woes with the otherwise delectale OnePlus 3 are far from over. The company just recently rolled out, pulled, and then rolled out again an update that addressed many of users' complaints about the smartphone, particularly about RAM management and sRGB support. And while those seem to have been resolved as promised, it might have come at a price. Some users, whose exact numbers have not been revealed, are reporting a faster battery drain after installing the update, seemingly forcing them to trade one bug for another.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has had many leaks and controversies about its features, but one thing almost all of those have been rather silent about is its battery. That silence has just been broken, with a leak claiming that the iPhone 7 will indeed have a larger battery than the iPhone 6s before it. Although you would presume it to be a natural thing, given Apple's history, it just isn't so, making this definitely welcome news, or rumor rather.

Galaxy Note 7 now tipped to have 3,600 mAh battery only

Galaxy Note 7 now tipped to have 3,600 mAh battery only

One of the missteps that Samsung made with the Galaxy S6 was to take away the removable battery, which was exacerbated by the fact that it had a rather modest 2,550 mAh battery. The OEM partly corrected that with the Galaxy S7 by giving it a still non-removable but bigger 3,000 mAh pack. Samsung might be dragged again into the battery debate with the Galaxy Note 7 (or Note 6) now that the latest word is that it will have a 3,600 mAh battery instead of the earlier leaked and hoped for 4,000 mAh.

Making your phone battery last all day (without using a power bank)

Our phones are always with us, and they're our only tool for doing most things anymore: getting in touch with someone, finding an address or phone number, navigating somewhere, taking a picture, and all that fun stuff.

This week the folks at Nextbit have decided to attack smartphone batteries.

Now Nextbit wants to make the smartphone battery - its relatively short life, in particular - a thing of the past. They want to make your phone last a lot longer.

KFC ‘Watt a Box’ is a box of chicken with a built-in phone charger

It's a problem as old as time: one minute you're eating a piece of fried chicken, the next minute your phone is dead. Chaos ensues. The chicken is in a box and you can carry it toward the nearest outlet, but who wants to be the person sitting near an outlet with a box of chicken? Not you, that's who. Fortunately KFC in India has a solution -- it's called the Watt a Box, and it's a box of chicken that doubles as a phone charger.
