Imagine being in the middle of a call, not just any other call but a business call, and the caller on the other end happens to be a busy impatient client you’ve been following up for the last 2 weeks. Then less than a minute into the conversation, the line goes silent. You curse why didn’t charge the phone last night.
The above situation, though may be extreme, is one some of us have encountered in the past. And an incident none of us would want to go through. For it is not only unprofessional but also shows lack of preparation on our side, basically meaning that you didn’t give the call (or the caller the other side) the seriousness you ought to have accorded them.
That’s why phone batteries are very crucial, just as the device itself.
And this is why the recent launch of realme’s budget smartphone, realme C11, was noteworthy.
Retailing at a pocket-friendly price of Kshs 9,999 and targeted at those making the transition from feature to smartphones, the realme C11 is equipped with a 6.5”, mini-drop full screen, and brings a larger field of view to the user. It also provides excellent game, audio and video experience, allowing one to enjoy a wider field of view brought about by the large screen and less visual disturbance as well as an experience of near-full screen. It also comes fitted with a Nightscape Dual Camera.
But apart from the aesthetic and other design features, another notable characteristic of the realme C11 is its bigger 5000mAh battery. Considering the phone’s internal resources and other specs, the battery capacity is considerable and massive, and all meant to give the user the much-needed peace of mind while in middle of their daily activities.
The 5,000mAh battery in a budget phone is unprecedented in the market as even most premium smartphone models still don’t pack that much battery capacity.
The 5000mAh capacity means that the user of the device with that kind of battery can expect to get about 100 mA for about 50 hours usage, translating roughly to about 2 days of active usage of the phone.
However, the strength (or how long) the battery lasts also depends on what’s it’s powering on the device as well as the background apps and features. Some of the activities and apps that normally drain phine batteries include apps that frequently get online for updates, apps waking the phone screen, and in some cases, the phone screen itself which consumes a significant amount of power.
To help users get the most and best possible performance from their realme C11’s 5,000mAh battery, the device has options to ensure this is achieved. These battery saving features and options include:
- Power saving mode which when activated extends the battery’s life before charging by about 2 hours.
- Super power saving mode which when turned on will lead to system power being reduced with the user only able to run a few essential apps at a time. This is important in extreme cases where the user has to stay connected while the battery is extremely low.
- Sleep Standby Optimization feature which when activated ensures that the phone runs on low power mode when the user is asleep.
- -App Quick Freeze feature reduces the idle background app power usage, automatically freezing unused apps. When activated, the frozen apps no longer use power, can’t send or receive messages, or access and read the device’s data in the background.
- Screen Battery Optimization feature which can either be deactivated, on balance mode or Super power saving mode. The Power Saving mode lowers some display effects on the device, except camera and photo effects, all in an effort to enhance the phone’s endurance. This ensures that the phone can run for longer even the battery level is extremely low.
Overall, and for normal use however, the 5,000mAh battery capacity in the realme C11 should just serve you fine, whether indoors or outdoors. The capacity is sufficient for most users and their phone activities.
