Battery technology has hardly improved over the years. All we get with each new iteration of a smartphone is a slightly large battery in terms of capacity, while a few manufacturers shave off their batteries for slimmer phones. This affects many things and merely wishing the processors to be more and more efficient is simply not enough anymore.
To offset this lack of innovation in batteries, phone makers have started provided their devices with fast charging capability. While this does help, fast charging too has issues of multiple standards in the market. Also, it's not always feasible to lug around a charger in hope of your battery dying soon.
So, what drains your smartphone’s battery so quickly?
This is a question that can have multiple answers merely because each person's usage is so different. Some people have hotspots turned on for the whole day, while some are on a phone call for hours together, while some are gaming at max brightness and max volume. Then there are newer smartphones themselves that come with larger, brighter and power-hungry displays, processors with multiple cores and software that bring more and more features. All these contribute to the battery drain, some little and some more.
Something weird is even keeping your phone idle can cause the battery to drain. Wondering why that happens? Here is the answer - smartphones are complex devices made up of multiple hardware and software components, even when you put your phone aside there are many processes working in the background like the 4G radio, apps, operating system and more. All these need battery power and how much of it is drained depends on how well each phone is optimized.
